Disney World Quietly Cutting Work Force

Job reductions are under way at Disney World after the company’s announcement in January it was offering buyouts to 600 executives companywide, including about 300 in Florida.

Details were scarce.

Disney said in January that the buyouts could be followed by layoffs, depending on the response to the company’s offers.

“We are in the middle of a domestic reorganization to our backstage operations.” Mike Griffin, vice president of communications for Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, said on Wednesday. “We are going forward with efficiencies.”

Griffin declined to say how many jobs were being cut and how many layoffs were ordered. The job cuts began three weeks ago, he said.
