Over 200 Furloughed Disneyland Cast Members Recalled for Reopening of Buena Vista Street
Yes, Disneyland Resort is currently closed. BUT! As previously shared, dining and shopping is arriving at Disneyland Resort as Disney reopens Buena Vista Street only. Workers United Local 50, the union for food and beverages service Cast Members at the Disneyland Resort, took to Facebook to share the exciting news that over 200 furloughed Disneyland Cast Members are being recalled for the reopening of Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure.
“Recall from furlough update 10/24: For the expansion of Downtown Disney into Buena Vista Street over 200 Local 50 members will be recalled back to work. Recall will happen in a few waves. This Monday will begin with trainers, leads, and some heart of house roles that will begin the process of getting the restaurants up and running. Notification will by phone call, but may not be a normal Disneyland 714 area code phone number. If you don’t answer your phone when the company calls they will leave a voice mail for you to return ASAP and will call one more no sooner than 45 minutes later. After that they will move on to the next person in seniority order. Please make sure your voicemail box is able to receive a message. When being contacted for recall members will be notified of the position they will be filling. Recall in each scheduling group will be by job classification (steward, food prep, receiver, etc.) in descending seniority order regardless of location job knowledge. Recall for premium positions, such as leads and trainers, will be in descending seniority order by Full Time conversion dates. For some Carthay Circle roles previous skill and ability requirements may be enforced. A few weeks ago we posted the summary of the recall process and it is pinned to the top of our Facebook page. If you have any questions after you have reviewed please contact us. In solidarity, Chris Duarte, President, Workers United Local 50.”
We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
