I really loved working for #Disney Grand California Hotel because...it was great pay and a fun environment.
Disneyland is a fun place to work and good pay.
I work 27 years in Disney engineering painting I retire now I want to come back
Disney Cruise Lines is the most exciting place to work, working with Disney has been a dream come true for me the crew members are assumed. I miss my Disney family.
Being able to build on my career. I was Executive Housekeeping manager and also in charge of the Custodial department.
It’s been more than a year since the Disneyland resort’s three hotels and two theme parks closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and Shevlin can think of little else but resuming her old job at the Anaheim resort.
Her yearning is not just about the steady paycheck. “What I miss the most is the human contact,” said the 32-year Disneyland veteran, who lives alone with her cat. “I’m ready to put on my uniform.”
With Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park set to open Friday, Disney employees who have been rehired and those who are waiting to return to the House of Mouse say they’re eager to reunite with co-workers and will be relieved to be added back to the Disney payroll.
“My work is what always keeps me going,” said Saturnino Beltran, a 22-year Disneyland veteran, who recently returned to his job at the Disneyland Central Bakery, where the resort’s baked goods are made.
“I do think it is now safe for workers to return to the parks,” said Austin Lynch, a union organizer at Unite Here Local 11, which represents hotel and food service workers at the resort.
That’s not how Lynch and many Disney workers felt last June when Disney announced plans to reopen amid a rise in coronavirus cases.
California kept the parks closed until this spring.
Many returning workers say they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and those who have already started to work at the parks say the staffers are taking the safety rules seriously.
More workers will be hired once state health guidelines allow the parks to increase attendance, Disney representatives say.
Would you be ready to go back to OR work at a large theme park?
It always seems that Disney is coming up with the next best thing and even a pandemic can’t stop that!
Disney researchers are now developing a new audio-animatronic figure with subtle eye and head movements that could allow characters like Captain Jack Sparrow in Disneyland and Disney World attractions to engage in more lifelike human-robot interactions.
The next-generation audio-animatronic was developed by Walt Disney Imagineering’s Advanced Development team, Disney Research innovation lab, California Institute of Technology and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and uses “realistic gaze” to identify people so the robot can turn to face and engage with them.
A series of smaller motions allow the highly animated and articulated robot to create the illusion of life. The animatronic’s head rises and falls subtly to simulate breathing. Quick, darting eye movements by the animatronic create the illusion of examining a person’s entire face. The animatronic can even momentarily shift its gaze in reaction to a sudden sound in the distance before refocusing on a person’s face.
The next-gen animatronics with the lifelike gaze are not expected to appear in Disney theme parks for several years. However, other new animatronics from Imagineering are heading to Disney’s Anaheim theme parks soon!
What do you think about this new tech at Disney, awesome or would it creep you out?
As many know Disneyland and California Adventure Park (and all other theme parks statewide) have been closed since the Coronavirus pandemic began. Yet there is a silver lining.
Earlier this week, California health officials provided guidelines for how theme parks could potentially re-open when a county that the park resides in is in the yellow tier, and even then, with only 25% capacity.
Orange County is currently in the red tier of California’s four-tiered coronavirus roadmap. It would still need to move up through orange and then yellow before that could happen.
However, Disney announced Friday that it will soon be reopening Buena Vista Street in California Adventure Park to shoppers and diners!
Hopefully, as things continue to improve moving forward parks may safely re-open for the foreseeable future.
Here’s my #ink #drawing of #OswaldTheLuckyRabbit that I did. Oswald was a cartoon character that Walt Disney created and he worked on that series until he had a falling out with the distributor, who subsequently got rid of him while retaining legal control of Oswald. Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse during the fallout from that incident and Mickey ended up becoming more popular than Oswald. I did this drawing while following along with one of the videos in the YouTube series that is put online by #Disney animator Michael Woodside as part of his #DrawingWithWoodsy series. I also felt that a #rabbit would be appropriate since tomorrow is Easter Sunday. I’ll provide a link to the video that I used in the first comment. #Oswald #TheDrawingsOfEaster #DrawingsOfEaster #fanart
