We reported earlier this week that Cast Members at Walt Disney World planned a rally as their unions are in negotiations with Disney for a pay increase. The “Rally for a Raise” was planned to bring awareness to the number of Cast Members that work for Disney World and feel they don’t receive a “living wage.” The Rally began at 5 pm on Thursday, October 19 and online reports are indicting that it was broken up by Orange County Police Deputies after only two hours.

Orange County Deputies deemed the rally an “unlawful assembly’ as it began to block traffic on S. Apoka Vineyard Road which is directly across from one of the entrances to Walt Disney World. Reports indicate that the Deputies threatened to arrest Cast Members participating in the rally but in the end, it ended without incident.
