We have sad news to report this evening.
Disney has reportedly had mass layoffs of performers of the following shows:
Citizens of Hollywood
Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor
Festival of the Lion King
Finding Nemo — The Musical
Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review
Beauty and the Beast Live!
Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular.
Green Army Men.
Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire.
Christmas around the World.
Turtle Talk with Crush.
Voyage of the Little Mermaid.
Disney Junior Live Dance Party
I’m hearing other performers were impacted as well but I don’t want to speculate on the specifics. This news is so disheartening, live performances from these talented individuals help create the magic that is Disney. These entertainers bring so much joy to guests and help create magical memories for so many. There’s no word on whether these shows are permanently done, we hope that’s not the case.
