  • Disney To Reduce Workforce :(

    Not that we didn't see this coming, but it's still so sad.

    I have been afraid this was coming as so many places are having to reduce their workforces. I am so sad for those Cast Members who will be losing their magical jobs.

      I’m not surprised, but it’s still so sad nonetheless.

        This is sad but not surprising news to hear.

          I just saw on FB that Yehaa Bob who performed at POR was let go. That just breaks my heart. All the things that made Disney are ending one by one. It makes me sad, anxious, and nervous to see what Disney will be like in the years to come. One things for sure, it’s going to be a different Disney.

            I saw that about Yehaa Bob -- his show has been on our "must try" list for the last several trips and just always seemed to get bumped to "the next trip" for one reason or another. I'm so sad we'll never get to see him now. And Equity Ben (one of the historians in the Frozen Singalong show) announced on Friday that he won't be returning --- he's becoming a stay-at-home dad and focusing on his non-Disney comedy career. I suspect he saw the writing on the wall because who knows how long it will be before Disney starts having indoor shows. It's been a rough Disney week.

          I am so sad at this news, but as others have said, sadly it's not unexpected. I feel for everyone affected.

          Enjoying some relaxation time on the Transatlantic cruise on the Disney Magic - I'm Cheryl and with my husband Mark, we love visiting Disney and exploring the world...

            This is beyond sad.
            That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.

              It is truly sad, sad, sad. We were thinking about when we might be able to see Yeehaw Bob. ☹️
