The resort, located in Orlando, Florida, reached an agreement with the Service Trade Council Union and the Actors Equity Association on Monday.
This is important because STCU is Disney’s largest union, representing the more than 30,000 employees at the resort, or Disney likes to call them “the cast”.
The company has not reached an agreement with all employees representing its union at Disney World, but discussions are ongoing.
The deal covers all types of actors the guests come into contact with, including ride-hailing operators, performers, and service staff.
Actors must present proof of vaccination by October 22, and those with medical conditions or “sincere” religious beliefs will be exempt, STCU said.
The news comes after Disney announced last month that it required all salaried and non-union employees in the US to be vaccinated.
