Two prominent members of the upper management of Disney Dining were victims of the latest round of layoffs at WDW:

John Blazon (Master Sommelier) and Rosemary Rose (vice president of food and beverage and merchandise).

John was spearheaded the drive to include better (higher quality) wines and specifically trained staff members. He started a program that trained serves to be more wine savy.
He actually did a lot of stuff to build up the wine selections for most of Disney's upper level restaurants. Check out this post to read more about John and his tenure at WDW: http://www.scottjosephorlando.com/food_drink_other_stuff/2009/03/master-sommelier-john-blazon-among-those-in-walt-disney-world-layoffs-vp-rosemary-rose-gone-too.html

Rosemary was released and her position was combined with the same position at DLR, Mahmud Dhanani now heads the food and dining of both resorts: http://www.scottjosephorlando.com/food_drink_other_stuff/2009/03/mahmud-dhanani-will-lead-food-beverage-and-merchandise-for-wdw-and-disneyland.html

It's too bad, but in this economy your head is on the block if you have a
big fancy job and a big fancy salary.

Quick update, Rosemary Rose was not laid off, she voluntarily left last week: http://www.scottjosephorlando.com/food_drink_other_stuff/2009/03/rosemary-rose-not-among-disneys-laidoff-but-gone-nonetheless.html (I just want to make sure no one gets the wrong information)....

There are reports of more people with Disney Dining being released, including the Food & Wine Festival Project Manager!
