Full List of Entertainment Cuts at Walt Disney World; Future of Shows Uncertain Due to Cast Layoffs
Late Tuesday night, news broke of the next wave of Cast Member layoffs at Walt Disney World—all still a part of the previously-announced 28,000 quota, but no less devastating. This round of layoffs mainly impacted entertainment across the parks and resorts, from fan-favorite “Streetmosphere” to established Broadway-style shows, like “Festival of the Lion King”.
All Seasonal and Part-Time characters and performers were let go, regardless of tenure, including acts nearly as old as Walt Disney World itself, like the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue. We here at WDWNT are distraught at the gutting of live entertainment across Walt Disney World, since these performers—along with frontline Cast Members—brought the parks to life every single day. Below, you’ll find the most current list of impacted shows and performing acts at each park and resort.
