This update from Unite Here! Local 362 comes not long after the union shared an update from Cast Members working at Disney Springs. These Disney Springs CMs stated the reasons why they feel safe coming to work as a way to share their experiences with the other Walt Disney World Resort employees who will be returning to the magic within the coming weeks. You can learn more in this article here.
But Local 362 isn’t the only Disney World union that has shared updates regarding Cast Members this week. Local 737 took to social media today to share a list of the locations where full-time Disney World CMs are reportedly being called back to work. While Disney has not formally addressed the locations that will be reopening within each of the theme parks, this list gives a lot of hope to not only Cast Members but Guests as well.
As a reminder, many Disney Resort hotels are beginning to reopen on June 22, along with select dining locations within each of those hotels. Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom reopen on July 11. EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios reopen on July 15. Read our Walt Disney World Reopening FAQ article here.
We will share more information about Disney World operations as it becomes available.
