Walt Disney World on Tuesday laid off 720 professional actors and stage managers in live theatre. The entertainment cuts to the theme park in Orlando, Florida, are part of the 28,000 companywide layoffs that were announced in September. 

The layoffs will impact live attractions. Some of the attractions that have no future plans to reopen at the moment include favorites like "Festival of the Lion King," "Finding Nemo: The Musical," "Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue," "Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage," "Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular" and "Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor."

Many of these live shows haven’t been active since the hit of COVID-19. Disney’s website shows, “temporarily unavailable,” when visitors click on the above attractions.

This leaves the future of select live shows in limbo with no direction as to where to go from here or what guests can expect after the pandemic.

Actors’ Equity Association, a national labor union representing professional actors and stage managers in live theatre, confirmed the cuts and responded with a statement.

"Our hearts go out to all the cast members at Walt Disney World. Disney has made it clear that our members would face work reductions since they announced layoffs of nearly 28,000 employees. That does not make this news any less painful," said Kat Shindle, president of AEA.

Due to the layoffs, about 60 Equity members are currently employed at the park.
