Cast Member Response on Going Back to Work
Several cast members commented on the Union’s Facebook post on their back to work recall. There is still lots of speculation on when locations not listed will re-open. Lots of cast members replied with positive comments, and were happy they were heading back to Disney. Lisa Filipone asked “What will the cast be doing during the shift when there won’t be any guests until 6/25?” Nothing official, but several speculated “cleaning” and “retraining”.
It’s good to begin to see cast members back at work. It’s a positive sign that Disney resorts are the first step to re-opening the parks. Stay tuned to MickeyBlog for more information on the phased re-opening plan at Walt Disney World.
