  • How Many People Work at the Disneyland Resort?

    So my friends and I were talking tonight and were started asking how many people we thought worked at the Disneyland Resort. My friends wife was guessing around 50,000. We thought that was way too many and went with a more conservative 20,000, which I still think is rather high but I didnt really have anything to go on.

    So my question to all of you is the same: How many people work at the Disneyland Resort?

      The years before acquiring even the DL Hotel (let alone Paradise Pier Hotel or GCH and certainly before DCA) was 8,000 in the off season, 12,000 in the peak season.

      I think it must be above 25,000 now in the summer months.

            I'm pretty sure we're SUPPOSED to have 22,000... but I'm sure that last summer it was NOWHERE near that many, between foods quittings and the sudden enforcement of Presenteeism.

                the official number of CMs retained after DCA opened in 2001 was 23,000. That # included DL, DCA, DTD, and DLH, GCH, and PPH. I haven't heard any official updated numbers since then.

                    Duuuude. That is amazing.

                    Anyone know the amount of CMs that are there on an average day? Not middle of summer or off-season - say a 9am to 10pm sort of day...
