Amid the terrible news we have been receiving regarding entertainment at Walt Disney World, it seems that the list is sadly growing. Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which already laid off the performers in both Citizens of Hollywood and Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage, is taking a second hit.

Note that at this time, Disney has not issued any official statements regarding the reported entertainment cuts.

It seems that the Cast Members of Indiana Jones Stunt Show Spectacular, the Jedi Training Show, Disney Junior Live, and the Green Army Men from Toy Story Land will also be laid off from the Walt Disney Company.

The Ronenvrese took to Twitter to announce:

Alright so now we have….. Citizens of Main Street, Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire dancers, Move it Shake it Mousekdance singers, Jedi Training Academy, Hoop Dee Doo Revue, Laugh Floor, Lion King, Nemo the Musical, Green Army Man, Citizens of Hollywood, Beauty and The Beast….

To which Disney With Judy added, “Indiana Jones, Jedi Academy and Green Army Men as well.”

Turkey Leg Jeff also chimed into an ongoing discussion about the Disney World entertainment layoffs adding that the Disney Junior Live performers were also included in the layoffs.

The Disney Blog continues to point out that nearly all equity performers at Walt Disney World were laid off tonight. Although Disney has not yet confirmed whether or not these shows and performers will be operational in the future, it seems that the list is only continuing to grow.

Raya and the Last Dragon STAN released a list of everything that they believe Disney is cutting in terms of entertainment, and it truly is a tough list to swallow. She noted:

If you have enjoyed any of the following please reach out to Disney to get them back

Festival of Lion King.
Finding Nemo the Musical.
Citizens of Hollywood.
Beauty and the Beast Live!
Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular.
Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue.
Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor

She continues the list with:

Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire.
Christmas around the World.
The Grand Floridian Society Orchestra.
Turtle Talk with Crush.
Voyage of the Little Mermaid.
Disney Junior Live Dance Party.
Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge First Order Encounter.
Green Army Men.

Encouraging Guests and Disney lovers alike to let Disney know that they do not want to see these shows leave the theme parks.

The recent discovery of cuts at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is hard to swallow because that is a park that is based on the idea of stardom and Hollywood, with over half of the offerings being the massive shows that are put on that make you feel like you are in the movies.

Keep in mind that the recent wave of layoffs is part of the original 28,000 The Walt Disney Company originally announced last month.
