With Disneyland Resort still closed (with the exception of the Downtown Disney District), thousands of Cast Members remain on furlough awaiting the reopening of the parks and hotels. Today, Cast Members are being notified of extended furloughs at the Disneyland Resort.
Cast Members were informed via email of the extensions. Ongoing furloughs may vary based on position and seniority. Do note that this is more of a reiteration of ongoing, indefinite furloughs. While many Cast Members thought they would return sooner, the company is letting them know the furlough period will be longer than initially expected.
This news comes fresh on the heels of the announcement that Walt Disney Company senior executives, like CEO Bob Chapek and Chairman Bob Iger, would be having their salaries replenished after a series of pay cuts back in March. The salary cuts were meant to be temporary, and were to remain in effect until the company saw “a substantive recovery in business.”
