At 2014 MVMCP…so much fun!! The Cinderella Castle is just beautiful with the Dream Lights turned on!!

CP Tip:  The MVMCP party starts at 7pm, but Disney let’s ticketed guests in for the party starting at 4pm.  Plan on going to the Magic Kingdom early and don’t forget to wear your Christmas sweater!  Even if it’s warm during the day, it can get very chilly in the park after the sun goes down!!!

Special parade, snow falling on Main Street USA, Castle Dream Lights, free cookies and cocoa...all of it wonderful!!!

Special Christmas nightime parade  with snow falling on Main Street USA, the Cinderella Castle Dream Lights turned on, holiday music playing, free cookies and cocoa for all guests…all of it is wonderful to see!!!   Merry Christmas! 🙂

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 (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) 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.

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.

We love Blizzard Beach! ❤

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).

*****************************

 

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.
