Unions finally agree to contract under pressure from Disney

One week after rejecting a contract offer from Disney, members of the Service Trades Council approved a largely similar offer last Thursday after Disney warned that they would not not extend the existing contract past Thursday night, and would begin unilaterally enforcing the higher health care costs in the proposal without the proposed raises.

Following intervention by a federal mediator, the only major difference between the approved contract and last week's defeated version was Disney's agreement that, if eligible employees elected to receive bonuses paid on a weekly basis instead of in a lump sum, Disney would pay the balance of the bonuses if the employee leaves the company.

Contract terms include:

  • Full-time employees will be guaranteed a minimum of 32 hours of work per week, up from 30 hours.
  • By the second year of the contract, employees will need to work 30 hours per week in order to receive benefits, up from 25 hours.
  • Workers who do not receive tips and currently earn the top pay rate (approximately $11.12 per hour) get an increase of 20 cents per hour and a lump-sum bonus of $1,500-$1,700 during the first year of the contract. The second year of the contract would provide a bonus of $1,000-$1,200 with no pay increase. The third year would provide a raise of 25 cents per hour with no bonus.
  • Workers receiving the lowest pay rate ($6.70 per hour) will get increases of 10 cents per hour in each year of the contract, ending at $7 per hour at the contract's conclusion.
  • Workers in between the base and top pay grades will receive a four percent annual increase.
  • Pay increases are effective on various dates, with some retroactive to May or October and others taking effect upon ratification of the contract.
  • Disney will not create a 401(k) retirement plan for new employees, but instead will continue to place them into the existing pension plan.
  • Premiums for three of the available five health care plans will be set at 90 percent of non-unionized employees in 2006 and 90 percent in 2007. The other two health care plans will see set dollar value increases through 2007.
  • We've also heard that the Teamsters local was able to negotiate a sidebar contract that provided for an additional salary increase.

The three-year deal, applauded by Wall Street, was approved by a 3,771-2,669 margin, as opposed to the prior week's 3,686-2,827 margin of defeat. As with the defeated contract, the four unions involved in the final negotiation with Disney urged ratification, while the other two unions urged defeat. The rancor between the unions is leading some observers to believe that this may be the final contract to be negotiated together by all six unions.

Disney officially announces "Crush 'n' Gusher," Typhoon Lagoon water coaster

After much discussion and publication of construction photos on many web sites, including this one, Disney finally announced the "water coaster" that is under construction at Typhoon Lagoon. The "Crush 'n' Gusher" will be themed to a produce washing facility at a tropical fruit plant. The water flow will take riders through the wash's flumes and spillways. There will be three different choices, ranging in length from 410-430 feet – Banana Blaster, Coconut Crusher and Pineapple Plunger. The ride is expected to open with the water park next Spring, following its annual rehab.

Judge dismisses lawsuit claiming Disney stole Epcot idea

On Friday, U.S. District Court Chief Judge Patricia C. Fawsett dismissed a copyright case against Disney claiming that Disney stole the idea for Epcot because the plaintiff "failed to carry its burden of proof." The suit, filed by an heir of Hawaiian artist Mark Waters, claimed that Robert Jaffray, a friend of Waters, came up with an idea called "Miniature Worlds" and had Waters illustrate the ideas. Jaffray allegedly brought the paintings to Disney. Fawsett's decision noted that "While the Epcot renderings and Miniature Worlds paintings contain similar ideas, both works express these ideas dissimilarly."

Waters and Jaffray are both deceased, and filing of the suit by Waters' heir followed the dismissal of a suit filed by an heir of Jaffray. The families had agreed to split any proceeds. A decision has not yet been made regarding the possibility of an appeal.

New Year's Eve events

Disney has announced details of the New Year's Eve celebrations around the resort:

  • Downtown Disney Pleasure Island will once again hold its annual hard-ticketed ($84 plus tax) New Year's Eve party. Performers include Cheap Trick, Tone Loc, Kurtis Blow and Kim Waters. There will of course be a midnight fireworks spectacular, desserts and a champagne toast. The special-ticket event is for revelers 21 and older and takes place from 8 p.m.-2 a.m.
  • Cirque du Soleil is hosting an alternative to New Year's Eve with special presentations of La Nouba at 6 and 9 p.m. Guests will receive champagne and a program including a limited edition insert with the performers' signatures. The cost is $20 in addition to regular La Nouba admission.
  • The Magic Kingdom will feature the "SpectroMagic" parade at 7 and 10:15 p.m., "Wishes" fireworks at 8:30 p.m. and a special New Year's Eve "Fantasy in the Sky" fireworks show just before midnight. The park is open from 8 a.m.-1 a.m.
  • Epcot's New Year's Eve Countdown Spectacular offers live music and deejays throughout World Showcase and two special showings of "Illuminations: Reflections of Earth" (7:30 and 11:40 p.m.) with a New Year's countdown and an "Auld Lang Syne" finale to the late performance.
  • The Disney-MGM Studios will feature live performances at "Sorcerer Hat Stage." Lisa Z & Funhouse play high-energy dance beats at 10 and 11 p.m. and 12:15 a.m. In between sets DJ Charles Miles will play a variety of music spanning the decades. "Lights, Camera, Fireworks!" a fireworks show created just for the New Year, illuminates the sky just before midnight. Complimentary hats and horns will be distributed to guests on Mickey Avenue (while supplies last).
  • The Disney Cruise Line rings in the New Year with ship-wide festivities for the entire family aboard Disney Magic and Disney Wonder. Children get special programming in the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab. The teen areas, Aloft (Disney Wonder) and The Stack (Disney Magic), offer DJ-hosted, teen-only dance parties. Adults enjoy champagne toasts and New Year's Eve entertainment in the adults-only entertainment districts.

PhotoPass site up, waiting for Thursday debut

With a scheduled introduction on Thanksgiving Day, Disney has put up a placeholder page to introduce its Disney's PhotoPass site (link). After its introduction, visitors will be able to review, share and order photos taken at Walt Disney World from any computer after they return home. Photos will still be available for purchase in the parks, but deciding that you probably should have bought that photo of you and Mickey in front of SpaceShip Earth after you get home will no longer be a tragedy. All you'll need is the code from the slip of paper that the Disney photographer will give you when the photo is taken, and you can retrieve the image and purchase prints of it online.

Ears to the ground

…See it while you can. Wonders of Life will be open Dec 18–31. No word yet confirming or denying the rumor that it will be open during The Land's rehab.

…Evening Extra Magic Hours (for 3 hours after park close) will tentatively begin on a regular basis on January 9th, with the Disney-MGM Studios having their night on Sundays. More info on this as we get it.


The opening ceremonies for Stitch's Great Escape featured Stitch and Elvis impersonators in front of a vandalized Cinderella Castle. Photo Disney.

…Stitch's Great Escape made its official debut last Tuesday, complete with toilet paper strewn over Cinderella Castle, "Stitch is King" painted in graffiti on one of the castle's turrets, and Stitch and a group of Elvis impersonators interrupting a performance of Cinderella's Surprise Celebration. Reportedly, reaction to the attraction is still very mixed despite the festivities.

…Free refrigerators have now been placed in all deluxe resorts, and the moderates should be done shortly. We've heard that installation at Port Orleans French Quarter is expected to be complete by Thanksgiving.

…Updating an earlier news item, Disney has reversed itself, and now has scheduled Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Parade during park hours for December 18 through January 1.

…The December 17 date for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party has sold out.

…The Home Depot College Football Awards will be broadcast live from Atlantic Dance Hall at Disney's BoardWalk from 7-9 p.m. EST Dec. 9 on ESPN.
