Disneyland Paris rocked by a wave of protests and an employee strike

Disneyland Paris has been rocked by a wave of protests and strikes on an unprecedented scale by employees, leading to the cancellation of several shows. A big protest is taking place today (June 6) with hundreds of employees, some of whom are actors from popular Disneyland shows, marching through the theme park with banners, dressed in their costumes. It marks the fifth day of workers’ demonstrations organized at Disneyland Paris.

The theme park employees are asking for a raise of €200 per month and are asking to be paid double the rate for Sunday shifts. They are also claiming compensation for the journey to Marne-la-Vallée, located about 32 kilometers from Paris.

Disneyland Paris warned visitors of the disruption on its Twitter account on Monday afternoon, stating that “some shows or activities may be disrupted or even canceled” on June 6.

“Disney Parks and Resorts will remain open and we will do everything we can to continue to provide the best experience possible. If you wish, you can reschedule your visit to a later date,” Disneyland Paris wrote on Twitter.

Many visitors who were unable to cancel their visit to the park due to Disneyland Paris’ last-minute notice lamented their experience on social media. One noted that “although over 50% of the rides are closed and no shows are on, every outlet, store and restaurant is fully staffed.”
