The last week has had the lion’s share of unfortunate news when it comes to Cast Member layoffs. Recently, it was announced that the Grand Floridian Society Band will play their last performance at Disney World on October 3rd. We also just learned today that Yehaa Bob’s show will not return to Disney’s Port Orleans Resort.
These announcements come as Disney prepares to lay off 28,000 of its Cast Members across their Parks, Experiences, and Products division. And now, it appears as though another group of performers may be facing layoffs, according to a Facebook post we spotted today.
It looks like performers at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort may also be seeing layoffs come their way. Tikiman’s Unofficial Polynesian Resort Pages posted an announcement mentioning that “many of the Cast Members were told they won’t be back, including the entertainers at the resort.” Disney has yet to confirm this information, nor does the post go into any specifics as to which performers at the resort were impacted.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort just began an extensive renovation that is keeping the hotel closed until the summer of 2021. While some resort offerings may be available during the renovation, Disney has not announced any exact reopening dates. At this time, the Bungalows and Villas are still open for guests.
We will continue to keep a close watch on this announcement for any official updates. As more news comes in, we will update you with the latest information!
