Disneyland Paris Cast Members continue to strike, leading to several performances and meet-and-greets being canceled for the day, DLP Report shared on Twitter today. We previously reported that a performance of Disney Stars on Parade had been canceled on May 12.
Mickey and the Magician
Performances of Mickey and the Magician at Walt Disney Studios Park have been canceled for the rest of the day in solidarity with the Cast Member strike.
Watch our video of “Mickey and the Magician” below.
The Princess Pavilion in Disneyland Park, where guests can usually meet Cinderella, Ariel, Aurora, and Belle, is closed for the day.
“Dream… and Shine Brighter!”
The 4:10 p.m. performance of the Main Street, U.S.A. show “Dream… and Shine Brighter!” has been canceled, too.
This afternoon’s Disney Stars on Parade will likely be canceled too.
In February, a similar situation arose with the “Dream… and Shine Brighter” show. One performance went on without any characters, and another performance was canceled as Cast Members protested unequal pay. The strike was a result of Disneyland Paris bringing in new performers who were paid more than the old performers still doing the same job.
In the past several weeks, there have been nationwide strikes and protests in France regarding a pension reform bill that raises the pension age from 62 to 64.
