When Walt Disney World opened back up in July, it was missing a few things. It didn’t have fireworks, shows, or parades, but it was also missing one of the most magical parts: its performers.
When you go to Disney, the setting is one level of immersion, but we believe the magic because we see the Cast Members make it. And Cast Members were doing a great job during the reopening, but we were missing the performances from Disney characters that really pulled us into Walt’s world.
On August 19th, Disney and the Actors’ Equity Associate reached an agreement to bring back performers to the park. Although many of our favorite ‘friends’ remain furloughed for the time being, some are headed back to work!
