Shopping at Company D Store

Company D is inside Team Disney.
The best Company D store was inside Team Disney, but it’s now closed!

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 park tickets (10% off) for them at Company D.


There are 5 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)

We liked the Company D store at Team Disney best. We went at least once a month and were never disappointed.

Hi ho, hi ho....
Heigh ho, heigh ho….Team Disney building.

(Note: The Company D merchandise stores are just for CMs.  They are located in  behind-the-scene, aka backstage, areas at WDW. Company D primarily sells CM-exclusive discounted new merchandise such as cast exclusive pins, lanyards, clothes, mugs, car decals, Vinylmations, figurines, etc.)

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program 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 in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.

  1. Hi
    Can you tell me if there is an article from you that tells pricing for resorts for cast members and how to let your parents visit and stay w you at a resort while I am in the Disney college program for the best rates ?
    I am ordering your book to get all the great info you have
    Thanks for doing what you are doing it has helped me and I am only in my first week
    Have a magical day


  2. I just like the helpful info you supply in your articles.
    I will bookmark your weblog. Good luck on your following!


  3. If you’re a Cast Member at a Disney Store not the parks can you use your employee card to get in here and the Disney Cast Connection?


  4. Wow, awesome blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? You make blogging look easy. The overall look and content of your website is magnificent!


    1. No plans. The one in Team Disney saw very little CM traffic.
      Part of the problem was that you were supposed to dress “business casual” when visiting the store.
      CM’s didn’t like that!
      But, they always had really good pins.
      Have a magical day!
