Holiday decor, festive treats and drinks, attraction overlays and more – the Disneyland Resort vacation season is in full swing! As the season winds down, it’s easy to slip into the crowds and forget to stop and notice the surroundings. A Disneyland union issued a notice reminding cast members to pause for a moment to recognize the possibility of holiday depression.

In a recent Facebook post, Workers United Local 50 shared the post below in the following image:

Disneyland Community Watch – Recognizing the Holiday Depression: The holidays bring a special kind of magic to our parks and resorts, and our cast is working hard to bring that magic to life for our guests. But sometimes individuals can experience stress during the holidays which can affect both their work and their personal lives. During this time, it’s important to keep an eye out for signs of vacation stress in our own lives, as well as in the lives of those around us.

  • Money, Time, and Family Can Be Stress Triggers While On Vacation
  • Know the difference between depression and holiday blues
  • A person can experience depression if symptoms persist for more than two weeks
  • If you’re feeling lonely, go out and look for a positive social activity, like volunteering for a nonprofit organization.
  • Try to maintain a balanced diet, get enough rest, and exercise regularly.
  • If you notice that another cast member is showing signs of depression, or if you see a disturbing social media post, contact your leader.
  • The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) or LifeCare may provide additional resources and is available on the HUB.

To see something? Say something! If you suspect suspicious activity, call x5840 from any phone in the resort and report it immediately. Don’t forget to warn your boss as well!
