Disneyland Paris entrance trashed after employee protest

Guests visiting Disneyland Paris were left in shock after seeing the park’s Main Street middle entrance in a papery mess after protestors left behind litter and handwritten signs.

Over the weekend, News.com.au reports that workers from Onet, an independent cleaning and logistics company employed by Disneyland Paris, protested the park against unfair pay and harsh working conditions. As part of their demonstration, the employees left behind enough trash to cover the park’s main entrance and across Disneyland Hotel. Due to the protest, Disneyland’s Main Street entrance area was eventually closed off to park guests.

Onet was definitely able to get their point across from their demonstration. However, many Disneyland Paris Resort visitors were less than pleased with the aftermath.

In a tweet by park guest David Woods, he writes how he “paid massive money” to stay at the Disneyland Hotel, only to “walk around in trash and be intimidated” with his children.

Another replied: “Agree. Disrupting children’s holidays, that their parents have paid a load of money for is unnecessary. Do it outside the park if you have to.”

In response to Woods’ tweet, Disneyland Paris tweeted: “Dear David, we are doing everything possible to limit the disruption caused by employees of a contracted cleaning company, and we apologies for any impact that it may have. The attractions and entertainment experiences are operating as scheduled.”

According to Fox News, this is not the first time Onet has protested at Disneyland Paris park over pay and conditions, a spokesperson for Disneyland Paris confirmed to the news outlet.

News.com.au reports that guests were still able to gain access to Disneyland over the weekend via the park’s right entrance.

Last month, Disneyland Paris made headlines when an escalator malfunctioned at the Marne-la-Valee station, which is next to the front gates of Disney Village and the theme parks at Disneyland Paris.

    Disney should have had stitch pop up and act like he did it .

    100% Disney’s fault.
    1)They need to clean up their Park; it’s not that hard.
    2)They need to settle their issues with Onet and make decent compensation.

      No….they need to fire that disruptive company and bring in someone else. There is no excuse for this action. There are legal ways to pursue a dispute. This was ridiculous.

      I used to clean planes. People can be disgusting with their messes. Never mind how many diabetic needles I found.
      Cleaning an amusement park is hard.

    I am discusted by these protesters they should have been arested. I would not want to be a Cast Member at City Hall over that weekend.

    History repeating itself. In America colonists were tired of being taxed to death and spilled tea in the harbor. The Parisians spilled paper.

    Disneyland Paris should hire their own cleaning crew.

    Because of the protests it was basically down to single file queues and was very stressful with 2 young kids 4 and 2 year olds. I asked park attendants what was going on and they just kept saying they don’t know. Obviously they did know because you have to get by security to get in that bit of the park and obvi6they where government workers.

    UNSATISFACTORY.. considering the amount of Money Disney makes, there shouldn’t be an excuse. Fix It.

    If I was there, I’d have rolled up my sleeves and helped to clean it up. The more people working on it, the quicker it’d be taken care of. There, it’s done.

    If Onet cares that little for Disney’s Reputation and has even less respect for the quality of a guest’s experience; then, Disney should permanently sever ties with them! Onet didn’t think about the impact they were having on guests’ experience? Obviously they didn’t or they would have “protested” in a way that impacted Disney, not the park guests! No Excuse, they should be without a job and without any pay- Disney should also FINE Onet for impeding their business, for defaming Disney’s reputation and for creating a negative experience for so many guests. Make Onet an example and maybe they’ll think about their actions the next time they decide to lash out like toddlers instead of utilizing appropriate avenues.
