Welcome to Company D at Epcot

This is one of our favorite things about being a Disney cast member – the Disney CM discount!

We like the Company D at Epcot best.

There are 5 different Company D locations at WDW, plus one off-site in Tampa.  They all have different hours and none are open on Sunday.  Remember, most are backstage!

– 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)
– Tampa DRC (2 hours away)

The first 10 days of the month, you can also pin trade at Company D for cast exclusive pins!!   Pin Trading at Company D

We liked the Company D store at Team Disney best, but it’s now closed permanently. 😦

We used to go at least once a month and were never disappointed.  We always got at least one or two cast member exclusive pins for our Disney pin collection.

Company D is inside Team Disney.

One of the Company D’s was inside Team Disney. Team Disney is one cool looking building!

We love Blizzard Beach! ❤

Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon:  Free Admission for Cast Members!

Update:  Blizzard Beach Will Have a Longer Than Usual Refurbishment Closure

Blizzard Beach closed for refurbishment beginning on September 8, 2019 and will not reopen until January 2020.

Each of Disney’s water parks is refurbished annually, typically between October to March. The refurbishment schedule is staggered so guests can enjoy at least one water park experience year-round.

This year, additional refurbishment work and enhancements to Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park will result in a longer annual downtime.

When it reopens in January 2020, Typhoon Lagoon will close the next day for its refurbishment, January – March 2020.

Comments about the Disney Water Parks: Cast members can get into the Disney water parks for free ($69 value).  You can also buy 1/2 price tickets ($34.50) for family and friends at the gate. Cast members must be present with their guests.

Please note that the water parks close when the temperature falls below 65 degrees (the water is not heated) or if thunderstorms/lightning are nearby.

water parks 2

Pay attention to the upcoming scheduled blackout days!  Christmas Week December 22 – 31, 2019 is blocked out.

*****

25a

Car parking is now $25 a day.

Parking at all the theme parks is currently $25/day. 

Remember, cast members get free parking. Just show your ID badge at the gate.

They are now more consistently checking Annual Pass Holders IDs for free parking at the entrance gate.  And the guards at the resorts are questioning all guests if they have a resort or dining reservation at the resort before allowing guests to park.

You can see how the blockout dates line up with this 2019 crowd forecast:

2019-Walt-Disney-World-Crowd-Calendar

We actually think the 2nd week in December is good!  Typically light crowds.

    Hello ty for the info, I have a couple questions. My family member is buying my family the AP for 10% discount she is a CM . If I give her gift cards can she use those to pay for them? Will she get the magic bands or cards? Will it start when she orders them or when we go for the first time? Is the discount off of the Florida resident or the other price (we are fl residents) Finding this info online is near impossible . Do I have to be present to buy them at company D, we would go to the Tampa one.

    • 1. She has to pay for them herself either by credit card or using the gift cards you give her.

      2. I think they start when you use them for the first time. You can link your MagicBand to them at MyDisneyExperience.com
      More info: My Magic +

      3. Non cast members can’t get into the Company D stores. Only cast members. All the locations at Disney World are backstage. You don’t need to be present.

      4. There are 5 different AP passes available for Florida residents depending on how you feel about blockout days. I think she just needs your drivers license number. (We’re not FL residents so haven’t bought these.)

      We’re glad you found our blog to be helpful!
      Have a magical day.
