Walt Disney Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, writer, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
According to a media article, Walt Disney refused to hire women. Apparently replied to an aspiring female animator in a letter saying he wouldn’t hire her because he didn’t believe women should do that sort of job. With this information, also consider that in 1938 there were a lot of jobs men thought women weren’t suited for. But he could have hired her anyway.
Guest Experience Manager (Current Employee) says"It’s sad how little they care about anything but money. They don’t care about your time off, your work life balance, your benefits, your growth, or your family. Cons: They don’t care about you, your family, or your quality of life"
Guest Service Agent (Former Employee) says"Greedy company, Very low pay, scheduling is random shifts so can’t get a 2nd job, favoritism, high turnaround, they waste lots of money on hiring and training since everyone quits due to their lack of work home balance. Cons: Random schedule, can’t get second job, very low pay, favoritism by management"
Production Manager (Former Employee) says"The rumors are true. Workplace culture is toxic and diversity/gender equality is not a priority. Supervisors/co-workers are allowed to threaten other colleagues."
Artistes interprètes (Former Employee) says"J’ai vu le vrai visage de cette entreprise après les attentats du 11 septembre 2001. Cette entreprise doit fermer , Cons: Dictature, Néolibéralisme"
Secretary (Current Employee) says"There is a wage gap between races. There's also a huge lack of diversity among who gets promoted. Anyone can see the demographics and see that non-white people do not get promoted as much as white people, regardless of their education & ability to perform the role. The company slogan is, "it's not what you know, it's who you know" ."
Recreation Leader (Current Employee) says"I have worked for Disney for over 4 years and I have noticed some dark things about this company. For one thing it does not encourage growth... in order to learn in a different department, one has to give up full time status and seniority drops to rock bottom... Backstabbing is almost a hobby with this company. People actually go out of their way to screw your career. If you aren’t liberal... enjoying working same position forever."
Security Officer (Former Employee) says"STAY AWAY! After years of service and seeing that this was a cult in plain site I saw all the ABUSE, manipulation, lies and rampage drug use!!! They will literally work you to death! Prior Military personnel won’t stay, that’s how bad they treat you!!"
Resort sales associate (Former Employee) says"Horrible place to work. Disney magic does not exist at all. Leadership is non existant. It's hard to believe that this place even considers itself part of the Disney magic. Walt would turn over in his grave."
Custodial (Current Employee) says"Horrible company. The company sucks, the management sucks. They’re all condescending jerks. The customers act like it’s their world and we live in it."
Job Allocator (Former Employee) says"I found my time at Disney extremely stressful. There seemed to be alot of people out to undermine you at every opportunity. I am from a background of where if you see someone struggling then you help them. Not inm Disney, it was frowned upon and I was actually warned of my behavious as apparently it made the person allocating work look bad, as though they had given the person I helped too much work."
Operations Intern (Former Employee) says"You made money but most went towards rent. I was really broke and decided to come home after not making enough money. Everyone told me not to do it, but I want to try something new."
Quality Assurance Tester (Former Employee) says"Disney treats employees like garbage stay away. DI losses money cause they wont listen to their intelligent developers. To many corporate decisions. It feels like high school working there."
wait help/SERVER (Former Employee) says"I worked for this company selling happiness to family's for the past 20 years and was fired on a company computer glitch and incompetent managers. this company has changed my life completely from day one to my last day getting walked out like a common criminal. I figured out that after all these years working there I was also getting suckered in to the fantasy except it was are soul "Cast Members " that payed for all the happiness we gave are gust"
Agent/Customer Service (Former Employee) says"I hated working for this low budget company! The pay was very low and they would fire people because the work volume was slow. They lied about making temp employees perm and would string people along until they no longer needed them. I hated working there! It was a pure waste of time! Cons: Having to work there!"
Agent d'accueil billettiste (Former Employee) says"expérience intéressante gâchée par des teams leaders qui ne sont pas sur le terrain mais veulent montrer qu'ils décident tout ."
Agent de propreté et d'hygiène (Former Employee) says"Ont as l impression d être au collège plutôt que dans une entreprise d adulte as éviter de toutes urgences Cons: Tous"
Operations Service Rep (Former Employee) says"Hated working there. Would never recommend working there. The worst job I ever had. Overall attitude of company was not employee appreciation driven, it was profit driven for shareholders"
Maintenance, laundry (Former Employee) says"at this work there was no organization, The hardest parts is that there was no enough personal because everyone renunciate, they give me to much work, only 15 minutes of break and no benefits at all and less pay. Cons: No benefits. to much work for only one person, only 15 minutes of break even working 7 hours"
Application Performance Architect (Former Employee) says"I had a horrible experience at Disney, my second time around, you get punished for doing good work, some people at Disney operate as a total gang and not in the best interest of the company, blue vs green badge discrimination sucks, contractors spy on employees as they slowly move to replace them."
Security Cast Member (Former Employee) says"They have bad pay and treat everyone besides guests like garbage. They truly do not care about anything but money. I would never work for the again. I do not recommend them."
ashleigh Parsons says"I’m afraid that today the magic has clearly run out at Walt Disney world! Me and my family booked a holiday over a year ago now and we have been saving for years to go on this holiday unfortunately due to the current situation with COVID - 19 we have had to make the decision to cancelled our holiday of no fault of our own. I am deemed as a vulnerable person due to the fact that I had a bone marrow transplant when I was younger and because of the rate in which COVID - 19 spreads and how dangerous it can be and the amount of people that enter Walt Disney world even with a limited capacity the risk it a too high for me to go. This is not the only reason we are cancelling the holiday, we are also cancelling because of the facts that park entry is no guaranteed, our Disney dining plan has been cancelled, you can’t guarantee your favourite restaurants will be open and there will be no parades, no firework displays and no character meet and greets. I am an avid Disney fan and this would have been my 5th Disney world trip and it takes me and my family years to save to go we go because of the magic you feel when we are there but unfortunately today the magic has clearly run out as when I tried to cancel they still wanted to charge me my deposit. I feel that I’m being disregarded and they are just taking my money because they can no one could have foreseen the circumstances of COVID - 19 and I understand that Disney is going to be taking a financial loss... but so are the little people like me... what about ohana... “nobody gets left behind or forgotten” well obviously in Disney this doesn’t always apply when it comes to money... one very heartbroken, disappointed Disney fan"

candiss says"IM not feeling the Disney Magic Today. We have a 21 day ultimate ticket with Disney i can only book Fastpass+ for 14 days in row !!!! No where was this made clear to me before purchasing my tickets. No body at Disney was helpful at all in fact they was quit rude to me on the phone. i don't get why it is that i can not book Fastpass+ for the whole time that my tickets are valid. The only good thing about today has been the very helpful staff at Attraction Tickets.com they have tried very had to help me with this matter and Evan apologised on Disneys behalf.Im just feeling let down by Disney.........."
IC says"This review is for the Disney Park, Experience and Product division. I would like to write about my disappointing pre-D23 experience. The D23 Expo starts on Aug 23, 2019 and it had not been a smooth sailing for me so far. The D23 team does not provide the same level of responsiveness as other Disney event. As a matter of that, they are not personal and repeat the same verbiage every time. They are extremely rigid. I am a Gold Family Member and it does not really mean anything except you can get more tickets; which means you are allowed to spend more money. The D23 site publishes the schedule of events held at the 4 main stages during the Expo. it does not tell you any other "in-between" events unless you go to its app. There is no consistency where the information is being posted. It caused a lot of confusion when they asked you to do online reservation of the event. Each day, a person is entitled 2 StagePass, 1 StorePass (you need a pass to buy the goods), and 3 talentPass (for photoOps & signing). But the D23 badges were mailed so close to the online reservation date that it literally caused me anxiety. When the date of the online reservation came (8/16/2019 3pm EST), there were issues that they had to postpone to 4pm. And then eventually moved to the next day at 3pm EST Then I clicked on the register button at 3pm EST sharp the next day; and I was in the virtual queue for over 90min. By the time I entered the site, NOTHING was available. I thought the reservation is for the passes, but it seems like you can select EVERYTHING, even the free give away. When I saw a couple available slots at one of the 4 stages, I selected it but an error box popped up telling me that it is not available. It was such a tease. There is no instruction on what is next!! Why would the system let me in the site if there is NOTHING left to choose? Very frustrating indeed. In addition, what does it mean really when all the "StorePass" slots for all locations and all days are taken? Do I even have a chance purchase ANYTHING? D23 still allows "overnight queuing". Even SDCC ditched this "overnight queue" idea last year. Do they really expect family with children to queue overnight? I am a very loyal Disney supporter. I visit WDW every year and other Disney parks outside US frequently. I always feel that I need to help Disney get better in order to make my involvement worth the value. But so far, my D23 experience was so awful that I completely lost my enthusiasm for it. I don't think I will renew my D23 membership next year."
