Massive yoga class held pre-dawn for Disney cast members at Magic Kingdom's Cinderella Castle

Posted Thursday, June 21, 2018 3:24 PM | Contributed by Jeff

They arrived before the sunrise Thursday, their yoga mats in hand as they headed toward the Cinderella Castle, three hours before Disney’s Magic Kingdom opened. The world’s busiest theme park briefly became a yoga studio as more than 1,000 Disney employees took a free, 45-minute class as part of the company’s wellness program.

We've sketched out a budget for how to live on $10/hr. several times on this site. If you have to live on 192 in a crappy hotel to make that happen, you're doing it wrong. Not only that, but why is it some people can, and others can't live on this wage? I see a parade of people heading to and from the Windermere Cay and Buena Vista Place Apartments just north of Magic Kingdom, every day, wearing their goofy costumes. Those are decent enough places... what are they doing differently?

With the possibility of yoga pants, this thread ended up talking about minimum/living wage for the 15,151,515th time. Disappointing but not surprising.

so if Disney makes money they should pay more? What if they lose money, should they pay less?

Why not just abolish the minimum wage altogether. Maybe Disney could get labor for $5/hr instead.

Living in a 3 bedroom with 4 to 6 people to afford the rent and live close.

Cool. Is that "living?" I had roommates too when I didn't make much.

I did meet a couple, parents of a classmate of my kid, we they were lifers for whatever reason, one also working at Universal. They lived in there too, seemed to be happy, if not rich. Made it work on those wages.

I'm sure everyones definition of living is different but if they make it work, great for them.

Did they mention what they did at the parks?

Wondering when the machines will start giving us an allowance so that we can go play and leave the grown ups to do all the work? ;)

Will there be a minimum allowance?

Probably. But it will be low. The machines hate poor people.
