Disney has announced that, in addition to the temporary furlough for non-union salaried, executive and hourly cast members announced last week, as well as the early end to this season’s Disney College Program, they will now be suspending the remaining Disney Internships & Programs as of April 18th.
The following notice was posted on the Disney Internships & Programs Facebook page:
As mentioned in the notice, all Cultural Representative will be sent home by April 17th, and Disney will be helping the cast members with their travel details. The Cultural Representatives will be paid through the 18th, and will be given a lump sum on April 9th.
The notice also details that Disney College Program participants who were scheduled to begin their program in early June will now be unable to do so, and will receive a refund for their program fees.
Disney will be adjusting their requirements so that the impacted cast members may have an opportunity to complete their programs in the future.
