Disney Mobile Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Disney Mobile is a division of Disney Interactive, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company, that designs mobile apps, content, and services.

KEVIN BURWICK wrote this piece for MOVIE WEB back in 2018 in which he reports that Disney has been Accused of Illegally Spying on Kids Through Mobile Apps

A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Disney and three other software companies for illegally collecting information on children.

Disney has allegedly been illegally collecting children's personal information through various apps and games. The class-action lawsuit claims that ad-tracking software embedded within Disney's mobile games is illegally keeping tabs on its users and selling the information to third parties. The Children's Online Privacy Act places restrictions on sites directed towards children under the age of 13. The act is set to protect children from the kind of action that Disney is being accused of currently. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that San Francisco resident Amanda Rushing is suing the Walt Disney Company, Disney Electronic Content, and others in a class-action lawsuit that was on Thursday of last week. Rushing is claiming that an advertising-specific software development kit is embedded within certain apps and games that are able to track personal online behavior. Some of the games included in the suit are Disney Princess Palace Pets, Dodo Pop, Club Penguin Pop, Disney Crossy Road, Cars Lightning League, Disney Build It Frozen, Zootopia, and the wildly popular Emoji Blitz. Rushing's attorney Michael Sobol has brought up the Children's Online Privacy Act and the fact that it's supposed to protect children from this kind of act. Sobol explains. "Disney has failed to safeguard children's personal information and ensure that third-parties' collection of data from children is lawful. Congress enacted the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act for very good reasons. As a company long-engaged in the practice of engaging and profiting from, children, Disney needs to make sure its games and apps comply with the law." Fans of HBO's Silicon Valley may be familiar to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act from when Dinesh took over the Pied Piper Chat and unknowingly violated the comprehensive privacy policy resulting in billions of dollars worth of fines before selling the chat app to Hooli. In other words, Disney could end up with some hefty fines if the lawsuit is successful. Disney has gotten in trouble with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act once before in 2011 when a company subsidiary, Playdom Inc., the developers of PonyStars and My Diva Doll, were accused of collecting the personal information of children from 2006 through 2010. It has been estimated that PonyStars alone had nearly 1 million active users. To be fair, a large part of the PonyStars players were probably adult males over the age of 13, collectively known as Bronies. A Disney spokesperson reached out to The Hollywood Reporter late last week with a statement. The spokesperson had this to say. "Disney has a robust COPPA compliance program, and we maintain strict data collection and use policies for Disney apps created for children and families. The complaint is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of COPPA principles, and we look forward to defending this action in Court." It is not clear at this time just what that "fundamental misunderstanding" of the COPPA principles is, but one thing is certain: Disney intends to fight Rushing's claims. This is a developing story and more news is expected to be announced at a later time.

Artistes interprètes (Former Employee) says

"J’ai vu le vrai visage de cette entreprise après les attentats du 11 septembre 2001. Cette entreprise doit fermer , Disneyland à contribuer pleinement à la destruction du code du travail . Disneyland est l’outil du néolibéralisme Disneyland Paris pervertit les masses de salariés ... Disneyland-Paris harcèle moralement ses employés en toute légalité grâce a la PNL . toute impunité car il utilise les méthodes psychologiques telles que la PNL Intéressez-vous à la sociologue Eva IllouzIl n’y en a pasDictature, Néolibéralisme"

Secretary (Current Employee) says

"There is a wage gap between races. There's also a huge lack of diversity among who gets promoted. Anyone can see the demographics and see that non-white people do not get promoted as much as white people, regardless of their education & ability to perform the role. The company slogan is, "it's not what you know, it's who you know" ."

Recreation Leader (Current Employee) says

"I have worked for Disney for over 4 years and I have noticed some dark things about this company. For one thing it does not encourage growth... in order to learn in a different department, one has to give up full time status and seniority drops to rock bottom... Backstabbing is almost a hobby with this company. People actually go out of their way to screw your career. If you aren’t liberal... enjoying working same position forever."

Security Officer (Former Employee) says

"STAY AWAY! After years of service and seeing that this was a cult in plain site I saw all the ABUSE, manipulation, lies and rampage drug use!!! They will literally work you to death! Prior Military personnel won’t stay, that’s how bad they treat you!!"

Resort sales associate (Former Employee) says

"Horrible place to work. Disney magic does not exist at all. Leadership is non existant. It's hard to believe that this place even considers itself part of the Disney magic. Walt would turn over in his grave."

Custodial (Current Employee) says

"Horrible company. The company sucks, the management sucks. They’re all condescending jerks. The customers act like it’s their world and we live in it."

Job Allocator (Former Employee) says

"I found my time at Disney extremely stressful. There seemed to be alot of people out to undermine you at every opportunity. I am from a background of where if you see someone struggling then you help them. Not inm Disney, it was frowned upon and I was actually warned of my behavious as apparently it made the person allocating work look bad, as though they had given the person I helped too much work. When I raised this within my management structure I was given a formal warning and 3 days later I was terminated. I would never work for this company again and would encourage anyone thinking that they are this wonderous company and place to work, to think again."

Operations Intern (Former Employee) says

"You made money but most went towards rent. I was really broke and decided to come home after not making enough money. Everyone told me not to do it, but I want to try something new."

Quality Assurance Tester (Former Employee) says

"Disney treats employees like garbage stay away. DI losses money cause they wont listen to their intelligent developers. To many corporate decisions. It feels like high school working there."

wait help/SERVER (Former Employee) says

"I worked for this company selling happiness to family's for the past 20 years and was fired on a company computer glitch and incompetent managers. this company has changed my life completely from day one to my last day getting walked out like a common criminal. I figured out that after all these years working there I was also getting suckered in to the fantasy except it was are soul "Cast Members " that payed for all the happiness we gave are gust"

Agent/Customer Service (Former Employee) says

"I hated working for this low budget company! The pay was very low and they would fire people because the work volume was slow. They lied about making temp employees perm and would string people along until they no longer needed them. I hated working there! It was a pure waste of time!Getting free stuff for my kidsHaving to work there!"

Agent d'accueil billettiste (Former Employee) says

"expérience intéressante gâchée par des teams leaders qui ne sont pas sur le terrain mais veulent montrer qu'ils décident tout ."

"Ont as l impression d être au collège plutôt que dans une entreprise d adulte as éviter de toutes urgencesAucunTous"

Operations Service Rep (Former Employee) says

"Hated working there. Would never recommend working there. The worst job I ever had. Overall attitude of company was not employee appreciation driven, it was profit driven for shareholders"

Maintenance, laundry (Former Employee) says

"at this work there was no organization, The hardest parts is that there was no enough personal because everyone renunciate, they give me to much work, only 15 minutes of break and no benefits at all and less pay.noNo benefits. to much work for only one person, only 15 minutes of break even working 7 hours"

Application Performance Architect (Former Employee) says

"I had a horrible experience at Disney, my second time around, you get punished for doing good work, some people at Disney operate as a total gang and not in the best interest of the company, blue vs green badge discrimination sucks, contractors spy on employees as they slowly move to replace them."

Security Cast Member (Former Employee) says

"They have bad pay and treat everyone besides guests like garbage. They truly do not care about anything but money. I would never work for the again. I do not recommend them."

Pageant Performer (Former Employee) says

"Not paid decently to be able to survive cost of living , management does not care about employees' well being, make it difficult to have a life outside of work"

Reservation Sales Agent (Former Employee) says

"I'll put this as simple as simple as I can. Disney will recruit from out of state, not offer any sort of relocation help, overwork you, and will never pay you enough to meet the cost of living in your area. Not only that, but I was in the hospital for 2 weeks and when I went back to Disney they let me go because I didn't inform my management that I would "be absent." Stay away from Orlando.Get into the parksOverworked, management wasn't understanding, never received any time off"

Shipping and Receiving Supervisor (Former Employee) says

"I show up to a team of people that were never motivated. The leads would constantly be late, or not maintaining the duty that was given to them. The workers that are new are made to do everything, while the people that have been there for over 10-15 years sit around and do nothing. The people who actually work are the ones who get reprimanded the most. If you have an idea or a problem, its best to just keep it to yourself. They may ask you about how the work is, but that is after they read a paper, to instruct them about what they are supposed to ask you. If you do not get along with the management team, you will fail miserably. That is on a personal level, not a working level. You can be the best worker in the world, but if they for some reason do not like you, then you will be shunned. I never experienced this personally, but saw it daily. I was one of the people that was accepted from day one. Cast members at Disney always say, if the guest really knew how we ran things, people would never come to Disney. But the company has quite a bit of finances to get away with just about anything relating to a guest complaint. The best parts about the job are the friends you make. That was my only motivation to keep showing up. After a while it just gets old, seeing the same old people making the same old mistakes, and instead of fixing it, they just sweep it under the rug. But hey I learned a lot. I understand how things work, I just would highly recommend someone to talk to someone who has been at Disney for about 2-3 years, not someone who has been there for over 15. Most peopleFriends you makeMoney and management"

Mark says

"The entire mobile app experience was a disater! Form food to rides to the app itself. I have been going to Disneylad for decades with well over 100 park days. The mobile app is the worst idea ever. I won’t be back until it is discarded."
