A ‘must visit’ place if you are a Disney Cast Member!
Just in case you have not heard of Company D, it is heaven. This place is one of my favorite parts about being a cast member – pin trading for cast exclusive pins!
They have a pretty large selection of different Disney merchandise at really low prices (great for presents!). You can buy everything from toys to Disney pins to Disney clothing to discounted Park merchandise and tickets. And, you get an extra 10% off at checkout.
If you have a chance of going there, you should! 🙂
The first ten days of the month, Company D also does pin trading, limited to 2 pin trades per day per cast member. They usually have several unusual or unique pins on their pin board. Always worth a look!
If you need extra theme park passes for visiting family and friends, CMs can purchase discounted tickets (10% off) for them at Company D.
There are 6 different Company D locations at WDW:
– Disney University (located behind the Magic Kingdom)
– Disney Reservation Center (off-property, close to Universal Studios/I-Drive)
– Maingate Office Complex (located near Disney’s Animal Kingdom)
– Disney’s Hollywood Studios (located behind the Villains Shop)
– Epcot (Located behind Test Track and the Mexico Pavilion)
– Team Disney (across the road from Downtown Disney)
We like the Company D store at Team Disney best. We go at least once a month and are never disappointed.

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
