Walt Disney World is apparently making up the largest part of the 28,000 announced layoffs.  According to an official notice of layoffs posted by @ScottGustin on Twitter.


There are a lot of cuts hitting the Cast Members at Walt Disney World. Earlier it was announced that Disneyland was going to see around 10,000 layoff notices go out by Sunday.

Walt Disney World is up and running, unlike Disneyland. It just seems like an awful lot of cuts. But now that the company is switching focus to streaming and “shareholder wealth” they are acceptable casualties for management.

What do you think? Comment and let us know.

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 2017-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids! Creating fun content and building new things. Certified art teacher, and mom. Opinions are all mine.
