Disney cuts 11% of entire parks staff

CNBC.com is reporting that Disney announced yesterday that they have cut about 1,900 positions (or 11% of the entire workforce). Of those 1,900 positions, 700 were open positions that will go unfilled, while the remaining 1,200 were eliminated through layoffs. The large majority of the cuts applied to managers and salaried staff as opposed to hourly employees.

"These decisions were not made lightly, but are essential to maintaining our leadership in family tourism and reflect today's economic realities," said Disney spokeswoman Tasia Filippatos in a statement.
