Online Petition asks for Laid-Off Disney Cast Members be allowed to keep their Discount and Park Admission

An online petition was recently created, calling on Walt Disney World and Disneyland to allow all part-time cast members being laid off, to keep their discount and park admission.

The description on the petition’s page says;

“We as the Cast Members of The Walt Disney Company have been torn from everything we know because of COVID-19.  We understand fully, that during these hard times, The Walt Disney Company, had to make the tough decision to lay off most of their PT Cast Members.  No one deserves any of this hardship that is happening right now in the world.  It doesn’t take any money from the pockets of The Walt Disney Company to let the “laid off” PT Cast Members keep their Park Admission privileges and discounts throughout the Parks and Resorts.  If nothing else, it can bring more money into the Parks and Resorts as Cast Members are always purchasing food and merchandise.  We are asking The Walt Disney Company to make the right decision and let the affected Cast Members keep their “Blue ID’s” until call back rights are expired.”

 

Disney Parks has not commented On the petition, which has almost reached its goal for signatures.
