Frozen’s Summer Games returned for the summer, May 26th!

The “Frozen” Summer Games returned to Disney’s Blizzard Beach on May 26th, with even more snowy, summery fun!

And for the first time in forever, you will be able to meet and take photos with Kristoff and Olaf at Blizzard Beach.

Guests visiting Blizzard Beach can once again join Team Kristoff or Team Olaf to participate in a variety of activities, games, and crafts from Ice Pail Relays and a Snowball Toss to Ski Pole Limbo and Slide Races. It’s going to be a blast!

Listen for a DJ spinning some cool Disney tunes throughout the day!

And at Typhoon Lagoon, the new Miss Adventure Falls ride is open!  Guests LOVE it!

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.

    Hello 🙂 I have a question..

    • Cast members can buy 1/2 price tickets at the water park gates anytime.

      So, it’s free admission now, then 1/2 price for CMs and family/friends through the summer after June 9th.

      Last summer it was so hot that Disney waived the cast member entrance fee and it was free for CMs from July on, 1/2 price for family/friends.

    • Bonjour!

      The free entrance benefit into the WDW Disney water parks is just for Florida-based cast members.
      HOWEVER, we recommend that you go up to Guest Services and ask them about complimentary admission or possibly 1/2 price tickets. Bring your cast member ID with you.
      You never know, a little Disney Magic might come your way if you ask nice enough!
      🙂
      (We’ve seen it happen!)
      September – after the first weekend (Labor Day here) – is a slow time with lower crowd levels with all the children back in school and a greatly decreased threat of afternoon thunderstorms.
      But, it will still be very hot and humid…high 80s/low 90s every day. (About 32 degrees C.)
      Have a wonderful vacation!

    Any new updates on Typhoon Lagoon or is free admission officially over for CM’s now?

    • Still blocked out because it’s the 4th of July holiday week.

      However, for the past 2-3 years, the summers have been so hot in Florida that
      they’ve brought back the free admission for CMs in mid-late July, over a month earlier than normal.

      It’s been so popular that we’re hearing they are considering moving up the free admission again this summer.
      Fingers crossed!

      Have a magical day!

    What about the rest of the year? Fall winter and spring? Do cm have free admission to water parks or just 1/2 price?

    Like

    • It’s free admission for Florida-based CMs most of the year except for the summer months…for about 10 weeks
      in June, July, and August.
      Last year, only about 6 weeks were blocked June through mid-July 2016.

    Hi girls!!
    My question has to do with cast members buying disney world park tickets for family/friends.

    When they purchase the tickets I understand we receive a voucher. How does that work? I realize the vouchers need to be turned into tickets but the purchase would be made in October for a January visit and we would need to link the tickets for FP. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! Kelly
