Welcome to Local 385's Character Department site.

Hi, I am Donna-Lynne Dalton the Business Agent for the Character Department, as well as other areas on Disney property. Before becoming your B.A. I was a Disney Character just like many of you. I have also been a Character Lead/Coordinator, a Show/Special Events performer, a Talent Assistant, and even an Escort/Greeter during my years with the company. I understand the concerns many of you deal with on a daily basis.

I have been a Union member since my first acting job at the age of three. I was fortunate to grow up with jobs that were protected by Unions. I learned quite young the importance of Union affiliation.

During my time with Disney I noticed several things in our contract weren't being upheld as they should have been. So I became a Steward. Since then it has become my mission to raise awareness and involvement with in our ranks. Slowly but surely it's happening.

Here on our new site, our goal is to inform people about our organization, offer quick and easy information about common concerns, learn about our organization, find events to participate in, build a sense of community, and gather strength through unity so we as a group can preserve our future.

If you are new to the site or wish to join the Union please contact any of our Stewards and they will be happy to answer any questions.
