Ep 312: News + What We Have In Our Park Bags Now


On today’s episode, we discuss some news including the future of furloughed Disney cast members and an update to boarding group access on My Disney Experience. We also discuss what is in our park bags now since we’ve been going to the parks with 2 kids. 


  • Disney Cast Members on Furlough told it will likely exceed 6 Months
  • Disney said that, “We continue to manage through this pandemic, and based on your role, you will continue to remain on furlough until further notice. When we initially notified you of your furlough, we could not have anticipated that it could exceed six months. However, due to business circumstances that were not reasonably foreseeable at the time and given the unprecedented and ongoing nature of the pandemic and its impact on our businesses, we regret to inform you that we now reasonably expect your furlough could extend beyond six months from your initial furlough date. We wish we had been able to provide you with more notice, and we have acted as quickly as we could, given the rapidly changing situation.”
  • Governor DeSantis on Wednesday held a roundtable meeting to discuss the Florida theme parks
    • He states that the FL gov’t is “comfortable” with expanding theme park capacity. That there are enough measures in place to increase the amount of people allowed to come in
  • There was a media event showing all of the Food and Wine Festival merchandise this year that will be released September 1st
  • Sneak peek of Mulan can be found at Walt Disney Presents right now
  • My Disney Experience Update Improves Guest Selection for Rise boarding groups
    • The app pre-selects your whole group that is linked to you and in the park to make getting through faster
  • The VOID has closed pretty much indefinitely – employees have told that they might want to seek out other employment
