BREAKING: Legendary “Citizens of Hollywood” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Let Go As Entertainment Layoffs Continue at Walt Disney World
News of equity performer layoffs is surfacing at Walt Disney World, affecting many of the beloved and tenured entertainers of the Citizens of Hollywood troupe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
When Disney’s Hollywood Studios reopened in July, many hoped that the roaming improv characters would return to the park, as they’ve been a staple of its entertainment lineup since 1989, back in the days of the Disney-MGM Studios when they were known as Streetmosphere.
Fans and performers alike are taking to social media to show their gratitude to the Citizens of Hollywood and other equity performers that brought the Disney Parks to life every day. Here at WDWNT, we were huge fans of the Citizens of Hollywood, and are distraught at the decision to cut their performances in the park.
