Disneyland Has A Pokémon Go Problem

A reader’s girlfriend works at Disneyland, and sends word that it looks like management is having some trouble with staff playing Pokémon Go on the sly.


She sent him this shot from behind the scenes at the park, where the bosses have had to put up a sign barring “cast members” from playing the game while on the job.

Rattata? Nice try, Disney, we know the parks are crawling with the best shit.

UPDATE: This post originally referred to “cast members” as actors playing the role of Disney characters. It is actually a corporate term referring to all employees.

Luke Plunkett is a Senior Editor based in Canberra, Australia. He has written a book on cosplay, designed a game about airplanes, and also runs cosplay.kotaku.com.



Please, these people do way worse/better (depending on one’s perspective) things on their break than catch some Pokemon. The Disney parks are single-handedly responsible for STD outbreaks in their cities.
