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.

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

Update:  Typhoon Lagoon is currently closed for refurbishment and will not reopen until March 2020.

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

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.

Next blockout dates coming up are April 5th – 19th, 2020 (Easter holiday weeks).



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.

  1. Can employees of Disney buy tickets for family members who can then pick up at Will Call if the employee works out of California and the family member is in Florida?? OR does the WD employee need to be present?


    1. In order to get the CM discount, you need to go to a Company D location to purchase the tickets. Then you could mail the hard tickets to your family. You’ll only be able to buy as many tickets as what is on your guest passes.


    1. You’ll need to go over to the corporate offices in Celebration to get them replaced.
      It can’t be done by Housing or at any of the parks.
      There is no charge (free) for replacement passes.

  2. Hi! I had a question. My husband is a CM in CA and he purchased, over the phone, discount cast tickets for our family to WDW, as we are all going on a trip soon. We linked the tickets to everyone’s MagicBands, as they are arriving two days before us. Will they have any trouble getting into the park with these discounted tickets on their MagicBands if he is not with them? Thanks in advance!


  3. Hi I want to know if Disney Retreat is free and how it works, can I bring a family member and also if they have rooms like a hotel and the prices? Thanks!


  4. Hi. I found this page searching for some help with my existing annual pass. I was hired in the beginning of May and I renewed my Platinum Annual Pass a month before and have only used it once since then. I had no idea I was gonna get hired at Disney and I’d like to cancel my annual pass. I’ve seen policies about when you initially buy the annual pass how you can cancel if you used it less than 8 times but I’m not seeing a policy anywhere about when you renew it. I have my self-admission pass and I think it would only be fair if I was able to cancel my platinum pass since it would be completely useless to have the benefit of a free pass when I can’t even use it. If there’s any way you can help or even point me in the right direction, I’d be very thankful for I am coming up with no leads. Thank you!


    1. If we understand you correctly, you renewed your annual pass to WDW in April, then became a cast member in May?
      There is no clause that we’re aware of about the 8x usage.
      You can call (407) 560-PASS or (407) 560-7277 and talk to a manager about it. We don’t believe there is any way to get a refund, even pro-rated. BUT, you never know. Sometimes magic happens.
      Note: The phone number for Disneyland annual passes is different.


  5. Hi I just stumbled upon this while researching a question. Very informative! I wondered if cast members get a discount on the Premier Passports. My brother is a CM at Disneyland and I am planning a trip to Florida, so I was hoping to get both and save some money.


  6. I bought my cm ticket from the Company d at DU and now I’m unable to go BC they won’t give me the day I requested off…are we allowed to sell them for the price we paid for them (the Halloween party ticket)


  7. Hi,
    I have a family member who works for Disney. If she get me 10% off the annual tickets, since I am a Florida resident. Does it have to be paid in full or can we get the 10% discount and still pay in installments?


  8. Hi! My sister just accepted a position in the DCP. We are considering buying annual passes using her discount as soon as she begins working. Can she purchase the passes online/over the phone so that we can get magic bands with our passes or can she only purchase the APs on property? If she does purchase on property, can we have the magic band sent separately? Thanks for your help!


    1. Hello,

      She has to go to one of the Company D stores to purchase the Annual Passes (10% discount).
      It can’t be done over the phone or online yet.
      I think when she purchases the APs, she can set the magic bands request up right then and there with the CM.
      She must use her own credit card for the purchase (can’t provide card info from a family member).

      Have a magical day!


  9. HI! I’m leaving in less than a week to start the DCP (so exciting!) and I have a few questions about purchasing tickets at Company D store: Can you use Disney gift cards for purchases at Company D? Also, can we purchase the 4 day, 4 park ticket special with an additional 10% discount at Company D? Thanks for your help!


    1. Congratulations on your acceptance into the DCP!
      We hope you have a magical internship!!!

      Yes, you can use gift cards to buy the discounted tickets.
      The 4 day park hopper ticket is available at a 10% discount for $392.

      Remember, the 40% cast member merchandise discount goes until Feb 9th this year.
      Shop at Cast Connection with the coupon in your DCP program guide book and get 20%
      off discounted prices.

      It’s all good!!


  10. If you purchase the 5 day park hopper can you add additional days through guest relations? We really need 7 day park hoppers but would love to use the discount.


  11. Do you happen to have past Disneyland block out dates for June/July this past year? Trying to plan a trip for next year and want to see what days may be blocked. Thanks. Great information on here!


  12. Any idea if the cast discounted annual pass through Company D is a live ticket upon purchase, or if it’s a voucher to be converted on first use? Wondering if purchases can be made months before first expected use, or if we should wait.

    Hello Elly!

    I am sorry for the late answer! I was on holidays in Sicilia so couldn’t send mails.

    Thank you so much for your great answer! I should have précise that we’ll come to WDW on December 2018 and not this year but your advices will be useful!

    I had already saw the MVMCP and wanted definitely to go!

    What is exactly the special discounted holiday? I will book our stay next month but for December 2018 so I suppose it will not work. We will go to Disney’s Yacht Club resort.

    I have some questions about FP+ when you are CM. I heard that CM can book FP+ only 7 days before the trip and only for 4 consecutive days. Moreover, it’s seems that when the CM stay in a Disney hotels, the 60 days booking window is allow for him too. Is that true? Do you know how to proceed? However, it’s seems that it’s only open for WDW cast member and not for foreign CM. Do you have some information about that subject?

    Indeed, a lot of French friends went to WDW and said that FP+ were not available for huge rides on the D day and must be booked before the trip. If it’s actually the case, and if my husband is not allow to have the 60 day window due to his French state, maybe we should buy entrance tickets.

    If you come in France do not hesitate and contact us! I would be very happy to go to Disney with you and visit Paris!

    Have a nice day,

    First, I want to apologize for my bad English!

    I found your blog this summer while I organize our future trip to WDW with my husband. It seems that your Disney experience as cast members ended recently, however I hope you’ll be able to help me with your experience and your belong cast member friends.

    I will introduce ourselves.
    My husband is Cast member at Disneyland Paris and I am engineer in aeronautical field (I work in the French company which work with GE named Safran. The two companies made consortium named CFM, maybe you know the name. We build for example engine for 737 Boeing aircraft)

    We would like to go to WDW around falls November or beginning of December. However, instead of information about hotels advantages and tickets which should be taken every day at main entrance gate, it’s really difficult to find more information about the other advantages that foreign cast member have at WDW, especially the differences from WDW cast member. (I could find a lot of information on your blog but I don’t know if he can have the same advantages)

    Can you help me? Maybe if you plan to come in France to visit DLP I would help you and even see you there!

    Thanks a lot for reading me!

  14. I’m new in all this. Am I able to buy a one day ticket to enter both parks for my family at Company D and get discounts if you’re an employee? As well as do they sell it like a family package or individual.


    1. You can buy single day discounted tickets for your guests to use at Company D, and yes they are park hopper tickets.
      They don’t sell any “family package” tickets.

      If you wait, as a cast member, you’ll be given extra complimentary tickets for family and friends to use.


  15. I have questions about the annual passes first is I saw before they have annual passes for both Florida resident and non-Florida resident prices… i was looking to pick up two platinum plus pass which is originally $769 and discount shows only $737 so does it include tax because thats not 10% off?

    also, i was wondering if you had to pay for the passes in full or could you possibly do a payment plan with a credit card on file?


    1. sorry for all the questions I’m just trying to give them as gifts for the holidays…with saying that do the passes start the same day I buy them or can I have them start a certain day


  16. My guest passes were lost in the mail and now I have to get a copy made when I get there and I was told have to wait until Monday but I arrive Saturday is there any way of getting them earlier then Monday?


  17. Hello!

    Great posts with fantastic and helpful information. 🙂 Does anyone know if/when we may see some additional Very Merry Christmas Cast rates? I want to go December 5th!! Thank you for any feedback!! 😦


  18. Hi, love your blog so informative, I am a cm and want to buy my gf an annual pass will they do monthly payments on the ap’s, will they combine discounts Florida resident and since shes already an ap the renewal discount?


  19. Greetings!
    My husband is a CM, and I often use my spouse pass to go to Disneyland in CA.
    I have family members visiting this December, and I’ll need to purchase tickets for all of us due to the blackout dates. How exactly do I purchase discounted tickets for Disneyland and California Adventure? At the park on the day of? Or is it possible to purchase ahead of time?

    Thank you so much!


      1. Thank you very much! I noticed the references to Company D throughout the site but I thought that was just in Florida.
        Happy Holidays!
