2017 Disneyland Blockout Dates for Cast Members


Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland…so pretty!!


We thought that we would post the Main Entrance Guest Pass blockout dates for the next few months for Disneyland resort.

It has RAINED all of January and most of February and March, with a lot of days barely making it to a cold and cloudy 60 degrees!  Burr!  Miserable weather!

We’re hoping May will be nicer…and warmer!  🙂


2/18/2017:  Rain, rain, go away!!!  (Waiting for the afternoon parade to start!)

At the Olaf meet & greet at California Adventure Park.  He’s now at Disney World at Blizzard Beach too!

In September 2016, the 18-month 60th Diamond Anniversary Celebration ended. We were so glad that we got to see it!  It was beautiful!


The eighteen-month long 60th Diamond Anniversary celebration was fabulous!


We couldn’t miss seeing this celebration last year!

Two Disney Sisters

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 Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.

    So by chance do you know how the guest system works at Disneyland for a Disney World seasonal cast member now that the way tickets are distributed changed? I


    • The process is still the same in that you have to go to Guest Relations with your company ID to get guest passes. The only thing that changed is that seasonal cast members must now work some hours (150 minimum) before getting guest passes, rather than having them automatically available to use soon after starting.


      • Josh says:

        Except that before you would take blue ID up to front gate and they printed off tickets for you and they didn’t count towards your guest passes because Disneyland and Disney world are on different systems. I was just wondering if that was the same or since they are on a similar system as disneyland cps now if it would be different.


      • Still on separate systems, so it wouldn’t count.

    Great information! Just wondering if I buy a park pass at the Company D store, does it have an expiration date? Thanks!


  6. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day. It’s always exciting to read content from other authors and use something from their websites.

    Hello and very helpful post. By any chance do you know if guest passes still work for retired cast members? I know they used to but I don’t know if the policy has changed. Thank you
