2017 Free Admission to the Water Parks for Cast Members


September 2016 Update –  The dates for the annual winter refurbishments of Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach:

Blizzard Beach will close first from October 23, 2016 through to December 24, 2016, reopening to guests on Christmas Day, December 25, 2016.

Typhoon Lagoon will then close from December 25, 2016 through to March 11,  2017, reopening to guests on March 12, 2017.

It is likely that Typhoon Lagoon will reopen with a new new family raft ride, Miss Fortune Falls!  But, sad news!! Shark Reef is permanently closing October 3, 2016!  So, if you want to swim with real sharks, get there by October 2nd!


Construction on Miss Fortune Falls is about to begin!!!

July 15, 2016 Update!

Due to the excessive heat, the summer blockout has been lifted…cast members can get in to both water parks for FREE!!!  Enjoy!!  (CM Tip:  Always check on the Hub for current daily info before you go!)

June 2016 Update:  CMs are currently blocked out from free admission to the water parks in the summer months…unless you work there!  If you do, then you can get in for free anytime!

After 2pm, CMs can buy 1/2 price admission tickets at the window by showing their ID.

Sun’s out, guns out!  Let’s go!!!!   🙂

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.

    Is it free admission??


  2. I’m going in september and im a non florida based CM – any clue on if I can get in free/discounts? Thanks in advance for any help x


    • The free admission to both water parks is currently only for Florida-based CMs.

      However, we’ve heard that if you present your Disney ID at the gate, you can get 10% off daily tickets.
      And, you never know when some Disney Magic might happen….you just might get in for free!!!
