Disney’s California Adventure Park

During blockout days, you can’t use your Disney Guest Passes to swipe friends and family into the park for free.  Also, Disney limits the number of rooms available for CMs to use their cast member hotel discount.

New CMs can expect to get their guest passes after working 150 hours (about 5 weeks into their program), after completing Traditions class on around Day 3.

Disneyland even has its own star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood!


 We’ve written two books about our time working at Disney World.

Both are available on Two Girls and a Mouse Tale and Adventures in the Animal Kingdom.

  1. Thats one of the things I love about living within a few hour drive,​ we would always go on the less crowded days, sometimes even in January with a little chill, and it saves a bunch on lodging too!
