Chris Garlock | Published on 4/27/2024

The workers who perform as iconic characters like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck at Disneyland parades have filed for a National Labor Relations Board election to join Actors’ Equity Association (Equity). “We love the work we do,” wrote Magic United members in a statement to management.

“Magic United invites The Walt Disney Company to voluntarily recognize our union and work with us to enhance an essential aspect of Walt Disney’s vision for his theme park – the transcendent magic of live entertainment.”
