NEWS: Second Wave Of DISNEYLAND Cast Members Recalled To Work

Guardians of the Galaxy Ð Mission: BREAKOUT! -- Debuting in summer 2017, Guardians of the Galaxy Ð Mission: BREAKOUT! will take Disney California Adventure park guests through the fortress-like museum of the mysterious Collector, who is keeping his newest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy, as prisoners. Guests will board a gantry lift which launches them into a daring adventure as they join Rocket Raccoon in an attempt to set free his fellow Guardians. The new attraction will transform the structure currently housing The Twilight Zone Tower of Terrorª into an epic new adventure, enhancing the breathtaking free fall sensation with new visual and audio effects to create a variety of ride experiences. Guests will experience multiple, random and unique ride profiles in which the rise and fall of the gantry lift rocks to the beat of music inspired by the filmÕs popular soundtrack.

Chris Duarte, the Local 50 President, took to Facebook for another announcement just a few days after first wave of employee recalls!

We mentioned in a previous article that a “second wave” was expected sooner rather than later. And here we are, the following week! Another 52 jobs expected to be recalled in the next week. We are very happy to see more jobs returned to the Disneyland Cast.

Here if the official update from the Local 50 Facebook Page below: 

“Recall Update, 
This week a second wave of recall is expected to begin on Wednesday for members on Furlough. A third wave is being planned for next week. We are waiting on details and this plan could change.

We also received news that California Adventure is planning to become a 5 day a week operation with expectations that the 5 operating days will include the weekends. This will impact scheduling for all Food and Beverage cast, including those currently working at Buena Vista Street, as the majority of cast will be required to work the weekends. Please begin to plan accordingly.

We are still awaiting on more information from Disney as details are being finalized, including what locations will be opening. As we get that information we will post it here.”
