NPR: 'Magic United': Disneyland Characters Vote to Unionize

Turns out, Disneyland is not the happiest place on earth.

At least, it's not for some of the workers who walk around the park as Mickey Mouse and Elsa and Chewbacca and other beloved Disney characters.

In a union election that ended Saturday, the Anaheim, Calif.-based performers voted overwhelmingly to unionize, by a vote of 953 to 258. The employees will be represented by Actors' Equity Association, a union known for representing actors and stage managers on Broadway.
