Walt Disney World Cast Members Blocked Out Through September 2020 for Theme Park Access

Cast Members looking to return to the magic on their days off will find that Cast block-out calendars for Employee Self-Admission, Main Entrance Pass, and One Day Park Hopper Guest Tickets have been updated to reflect a full block-out through September 2020. At this time, the calendar does not extend past September.

Park attendance will be managed via the Disney Park Pass reservation system. To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid Cast Admission are required.

Cast Members who have returned to work or are still furloughed will have the opportunity to choose one theme park to visit on special reopening preview days. Registration for the previews begins tomorrow, on July 1. You can find full details on Cast Member preview registration by clicking here.

Well things just got a lot less magical for cast members… that’s really the main perk for working for the mouse.

That’s really sad. Way to treat your cast members Disney.. one would think they would get at least 1 day a week to come in to at least 1 park. Very sad what Disney has bender to.. all this nonsense virus bs. I mean of course the numbers are spiking, that’s what viruses do, they spread but the death rate is not going up so what’s the problem? Why are we shouting things down? Let younger abd healthier people get this virus to get to herd immunity quicker!

Disney has lost every ounce of my respect reopening. There is no reason to reopen when we are having the worst days ever in the history of COVID-19, and the most renowned epidemiologists are all saying the consequences of opening could have horrible impacts on communities. Disney will always be there, I just can’t understand the reward of endangering your family and community to go to an amusement park for a few hours. Plus they have no issues endangering staff with families for a little profit. I think they make enough off of merchandise, and all of their other TV… Read more »

Did you lose respect for Universal, Legoland, Sea World and others in early June when they reopened ?

This makes me sad, too. I see why they are my daughter is a Cast Member, we’ve had reservations for months to celebrate her 21st at WDW. We’ve celebrated her bday at Disney every year since living in Orlando. This is the first time she’s been blocked during her bday since being a Cast Member. The magic is less now for sure, we’re going to have to be a little more creative. We will make the most of the resort.

I meant to say, “I see why they are doing this, but my daughter is a Cast Member…”

We relocate here from a wonderful community for the forever magical job. Still furloughed and quarantined since March.
This cast lock down is cruel & not thought out.
