Disneyland Resort Cast Members dedicate ourselves to making the Parks a place where every guest can create lifelong memories. We deserve a union to ensure that Disneyland is a fairer, safer place to work, so it can truly be the happiest place on earth.

This website is intended to give information to fellow Cast Members about Magic United. Members of the public looking for ways to support us can visit our Action Network page.

Election Information

In-person voting will take place on May 15, 16, and 18.

Based on the work schedule as posted on May 10, 2024, a Cast Member’s first scheduled shift during the voting period (May 15, 16, or 18, 2024) will determine their designated voting location. (Any shift changes after May 10, 2024, may not reflect a change in a Cast Member’s voting location.)

If a Cast Member is not scheduled to work during the voting period, their designation is listed under TDA. A Cast Member can vote on any of the days or times at their designated location. If a Cast Member votes at a location that they are not designated to vote at, that Cast Member will vote subject to challenge.

If you have any questions, please review the FAQ page or email organizing@actorsequity.org.

Why we Want a Union

When we speak with a collective voice, we can have a clearer, more productive conversation with our employer. With Magic United, we can work together with each other and with Disney leadership to ensure our talents remain central to the Disneyland experience for the millions of guests we interact with each year.

icon

Cast Member Safety

We need enforceable policies to protect Cast Members from preventable injuries, and to be treated appropriately when we are sick or injured, including sufficient sick time. Management must improve the safety and sanitary conditions of our costumes, wigs, and workplaces.

icon

Appropriate Compensation

Magic doesn’t pay our rent. We must be able to live comfortably in the community where we work. It’s time for pay increases that keep pace with inflation and reflect the value of the World Class Experiences we bring to life for our Guests through our performances and storytelling throughout Disneyland Resort.

icon

Clear and Respectful Communication

We must be part of the discussion when decisions are made about our work. Leadership must be accessible to us, and their expectations must be clearly and consistently expressed and reinforced with appropriate training. Every Cast Member must be treated with respect regardless of seniority, role, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation.

icon

Fair Scheduling
and Job Security

Work schedules and desired availability must be well-defined and provided with sufficient notice. We call for reforming policies that harm part-time workers and older Cast Members. Disney must open more opportunities for full-time employment.

We are committed to proposing all of these positive changes, and we embrace our responsibility to engage in collective bargaining for the betterment of our workforce. While the path may present challenges, our steadfast commitment empowers us to adapt, learn and persist in our pursuit of achieving comprehensive and lasting improvements.

Beware of Union Busting

We know that our story will have a happy ending, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be some challenges to navigate before we get there. Unions can be scary to employers, because they enable the people doing the work to have a say and a seat at the table. Learn more about the traps you may encounter and how to avoid them!

icon

Retaliation
is Illegal

As unionizing employees, federal labor law protects us from actions management may take to dissuade us from organizing. Learn about your rights as an employee, our rights as a union and Disney’s rights as an employer during the unionization process.
