Disney Cast Member Discounts!

An awesome perk of being a Cast Member for one of the biggest companies in the world is the discounts you recieve. Working for the Mouse definitely has it's benefits. Although they are subject to change, and also are different for different statuses of Cast Members (CM), here are some of the discounts I recieved on my program and took advantage of.

  • approximately 10-20% off of table service meals, if used during specific time periods
  • 20% off at some quick-service restaurants that accept your merchandise discount (Restarauntasaurus, some restaurants in the resorts, buying bottled beverages at merchandise locations)
  • 20% merchandise discount
  • 50% merchandise discount during holiday discount periods
  • anywhere up to 40% off of hotels for family & friends as well as up to 60% off for yourself
  • some cast members are able to get Disney Vacation Club membership at discounted rates (speak to a Vacation Club representative for specifics on that as I do not know the logistics)
  • discounts at Downtown Disney on things like Characters in Flight, movie tickets, restaurants, Cast Member movie days, and more
  • Occasional Cirque du Soleil discounts (I received 50% off at one point and had to purchase tickets the day of the show)
  • Free access to all of the parks (Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom & Magic Kingdom) at all times aside from Extra Magic Hours, holidays and special designated events
  • Discounts and sometimes free access to Disney's Blizzard Beach & Typhoon Lagoon water parks
  • Discounted admission to Disney's Miniature Golf courses, Winter Summerland & Fantasia Gardens
  • Discounted park admission for friends and family.
  • A few sets of free one-day park hopper passes to use with friends and family.
There are so many other discounts you can get if you just look and ask around! We liked to visit CiCi's Pizza for their special CM discount, got discounts around town at certain restaurants in close proximity to the parks, discounts at some of the stores at the outlet malls in the area, free admission to Service Industry Nights at House of Blues (if 21+), I believe free admission to Jellyrolls at the Boardwalk (I never went, so I'm not 100% sure), and soooo much more!
