        Disney Store employees no longer get discounts because they are now owned and operated by a completely different owner, The Childrens Place.

        At least that was the general discussion in all the stores when the takeover occurred. Many of the employees were grumbling about that with me when I shopped at the various Disney Store locations. No more park discounts!

          You don't get much at all. But don't worry BPF will be adding her 2 cents soon.

            I have been told by a Disney Store cast member that they lost all discounts when Children's Place took over. Just like AP's used to get discounts at the Disney Stores, but no longer do.

                That is a BIG negatory! No more perks for employees (no longer called cast members at Disney Store) and for guests.

                  DS CM's do not get any discount at the park once they were bought by Childrens Place.

                  But Disneyland CM's get discounts at DS...

                    The only thing Disney about Disney Stores now is the name. Nope, you are an employee of the Children's Place, not The Walt Disney Co.

                      Actually, they are. And the register area is called "The Box Office", and the floor is "The Show".

                        Then I guess it is safe to say that the only thing Disney about the Disney Store is the name and the way they name the layout of the store! :lol:

                          THAT is exactly true.

                            You use to get a discount on merch and stuff... that's gone now
                            You use to get three free park hoppers a year... they down-graded it early this year to three single park tickets.
                            Usually (about twice a year) you get acess to Company D (the discount cast member store outside the park).

                            There's not much anymore. I came on about a month before the change over 3 yrs ago and I remember a lot of people quitting because of the lack of disney related benefits... kinda sad.

                            And we are still technically "Cast Members" to whomever said otherwise. Customers are still "Guests" the Floor is still "on stage" the back room's still "back stage". Actually CP didn't really change much of how Disney Stores operate or train people.

                              Thank you Kuzcochik for being positive and not negative, and for the information. I love working at TDS, it'll be nice once Disney has bought back the lease for the stores chain. My goal is to become part of the management team eventually.
                              Thanks again!!
