This is great news as the parking at CC/PC is terrible!!!  Hopefully, it will be much better at the new location!

Not much to look at!

Located just north of MK (you can see Fantasyland), this place is a mecca for Disney Cast Members and their guests. You can get discounted theme park merchandise, hotel furniture, and discounted basic grocery and candy items. A potpourri of Disney stuff!

There are two trailers. Cast Connection is the cast exclusive store that sells out-of-season or discontinued new merchandise, holiday merchandise, damaged merchandise from the Parks (wrinkled/stained clothing), and some groceries (like what guests can buy at Fort Wilderness grocery store). Everything is at least 50-75% off listed price and you get an extra 10% CM discount off at checkout.

Property Control shares the space and sells decommissioned company items (industrial equipment, furniture from resorts, TVs, etc.), broken merchandise, and unclaimed lost and found items. Everything is 75-90% off the original price.  No additional discount at checkout.

Polynesian Table $5

Bed frame from Polynesian, $5

Bed frame from the Caribbean Beach Resort, $5

The day we were there, they were selling really nice brand new PhotoPass winter jackets for $5. There were over a dozen nice padded chairs that looked like they came from the Grand Floridian going for $20 each. My friend bought a table that came from the Polynesian Resort for $5. We got some Disney Blizzard Beach tee shirts for $6.99 (down from $29.99).

The groceries available were: white sandwich bread, pasta, gallons of milk, eggs, HUGE bags of shredded cheese, HUGE bags of lettuce, 20 lb. bags of rice, fresh fruit (bananas, lemons, limes, oranges, pineapples), and fresh vegetables (potatoes, onions). No meat.

Good selection of fresh fruits, 25 cents.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins
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 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.

  2. Do you think the table was from there too? (We weren’t sure where it was from!)
