Pressing Issues – Massive Cast Layoffs, Entertainment Cuts, California Parks Fight Back (10/4/2020)


In this week’s episode, our panel discusses the major news of layoffs affecting nearly every element of Disney parks & resorts, from hourly park cast members, to entertainers like the Disney Society Orchestra and Yeeha Bob, to Imagineers. They’ll also discuss California theme parks pushing back against the state’s reopening guidelines, for which the parks themselves were not sufficiently involved in creating.

Pressing Issues is also home to a discussion of the content within the weekly Timekeeping series of articles, authored by our own Ron D’Anna. Timekeeping, a year-long series detailing the chronological history of Walt Disney World, will attempt to chronicle year-by-year changes to the resort.
