The discussion was also going on in another thread. I believe Disneyland opened without equity actors and WDW is using at least 1 equity actor. Hopefully someone can confirm.

WDW’s have been Equity from the beginning. Disneyland’s aren’t covered by a union as far as I know, though.

I don't mean to question you here, but I don't believe they used equity actors at the outset. I would certainly welcome the change if true.

I'd like Calculon to the be the droid that walks us through the light saber experience. Now *there's* drama!

Do we know if they'll be using equity actors for the experience?

Pictures show using every other work station. I would have thought they would've gone with plexiglass dividers.
