The video shows Disney sharing supporting words for the members of the performers union, and highlighting how they are the highlight of vacations to Disneyland Resort.

“The characters and the parade people make the vacation,” said [Abigail Disney]. Thank you for support as the first day of voting continues!

Disneyland Resort parade and character performers officially voted to unionize last month. Cast Members wrote in an announcement, “Our hope is to keep moving forward in collaboration. We believe improving our collective working conditions will have a direct impact on not only Cast Members’ lives, but the caliber of entertainment we offer at Disneyland Resort.”

The group, called Magic United, encompasses 1,700 Disneyland Resort Cast Members. A union election is taking place this week from May 15 through May 18.

Disneyland Resort has not yet recognized the union. Most Disneyland Resort Cast Members are already unionized, as are Walt Disney World Resort performers.
