Disney Stars on Parade Performance Canceled Due to Disneyland Paris Cast Member Strike, Next Action Planned for Saturday

At Disneyland Paris, today’s Disney Stars on Parade performance has been canceled due to the ongoing Cast Member strike. Cast Members are demanding better pay and working conditions.

Disney Stars on Parade Canceled

This morning and afternoon, Cast Members marched through both Disneyland Paris parks, leading to performances of the 30th anniversary cavalcade and show “Dream… and Shine Brighter” being canceled. By 6:00 p.m., Cast Members were sitting on Main Street, U.S.A., blocking the route of Disney Stars on Parade.

DLP Report shared a video of the striking Cast Members cheering when the parade’s cancellation was announced.

Cast Members have been striking since 9:00 a.m. local time. Disneyland Park is scheduled to close at 11:00 p.m. tonight (5:00 p.m. ET), while Walt Disney Studios Park will close at 10:00 p.m.

The next strike action is currently planned for Saturday, June 3. So far, Cast Members have been holding strikes on Tuesdays so they interfere less with guests and their vacations. As executive management continues to ignore their demands, they have decided to schedule a strike for the weekend.

The strikes are organized by UNSA (National Union of Autonomous Trade Unions). They shared photos and videos from today’s strike on Twitter.

Ongoing Cast Member Strikes

dream... and shine brighter Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris Cast Members have been trying to incite change in their pay and conditions for months. Just a few weeks ago, a performance of Disney Stars on Parade at Disneyland Paris was canceled at the last minute due to another Cast Member strike.

A week ago, the union held a strike on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park. Guests arriving at Disneyland Paris in the morning were directed to the arcades to reach their destinations, and some believed a show was about to start since the area was being kept clear. As the demonstration continued, guests were able to see the Cast Members chanting for change. One performance of the “Dream
 Shine Brighter” Parade was canceled due to Cast Members demonstrating in this space.

Another similar situation occurred at Disneyland Paris back in February when protests against unequal pay caused one performance of “Dream
and Shine Brighter” to go on without any characters and another performance to be completely canceled.

You can watch a full performance of “Dream
and Shine Brighter” below.
