  • CM Guest Passes Privileges Revoked?

    I head today that CM's will not be allowed to give out any guest passes or let anyone into the park until after September due to the 50th celebration and concerns over park guest capacity. Can someone confirm this???

    Cast members are issued special tickets specifically FOR bringing friends/family TO the 50th during May.

      as it was last year, the main entrance pass (a.k.a. the CM sign-in pass) is blocked out from July 17 - late August. This is nothing new.

          This is what I have heard - it's on the back of the Silver Pass.

            You wouldn't be able to anyways Melmel, you have to have worked at the resort for a while to get a main gate pass (I forget how long exactly) But I bet you will meet some other CM's who could sign them in for you, thats what I did to get my family in!

                If you go to the team center you can get 3 tickets for the CM 50th previews which start on the 13th.

                  Does anyone know how long it takes exactly to get a main gate pass?

                    I think you have to be a CR-25 to get one as a perk.

                          at the beginning of summer you'll also get two additional comps mailed to you, so that's one more to get you through the 90 days!

                            You only need to be the normal CR to get the Main Gate pass. Which means the only CMs that don't get main gate passes are CTs. Oh.. and the ones with GREEN IDs, meaning they're ROP or people hired for special reasons.

                              Thanks for the refresher Its been a while- I just know I was a CT and I couldn't get one, no matter how long I had been there.

                                Just for kicks and giggles for those whom like this information:

                                Green IDS- as General Shang said, for 'operating participants' is one of the terms also used.

                                Red/Pink IDS- CTs, For Seasonal Cast Members
                                Yellow IDs- For basically all other hourly cast members, by far the most common
                                Blue IDs- For salaried castmembers and management types
                                Blue with Diagonal Yellow Stripe- For Executives.

                                The coloring scheme is consistent through the company including workers at ABC and Imagineering and such. Their IDs carry their own logos and designs, but the color schemes are the same. Just FYI.

                                  I'm a part-time CM, so I would probably have a yellow pass? And I still have to wait 90 days to get access to the main gate to invite guests?

                                    No and Yes. For the colors I was refering to were the color of your ID card, the one with your picture on it that you use to clock in and out with and all of that jazz.

                                    The main gate passes that basically all post-90day CMs have (possibly not the CTs, I'm sure someone out there knows) are blue. For those higher ups, there are the silver passes, you can guess which color those are. The Silver Pass can be given to someone else and also bestows upon them a 35% discount on all merchandise. And no, I don't have one.

                                      Well I guess it'll be time to renew the premium annual pass come July. My pass expires July 5th.

                                        More follow-up:

                                        CTs do not receive the blue Main Gate Passes. However, I believe that they are eligible for the two complimentary passes that are sent out twice a year (during summer and winter peak seasons, for a total of four complimentary passes). Although this may have changed, active CTs at DLR also get complimentary admission to WDW.

                                        Silver Passes are given to management CMs (those folks with the blue cards and up) and their spouses, though to my understanding it is non-transferable otherwise (as in, only the Silver Passholder and his/her spouse are the only authorized users). "Operating Participant" managers are also given a Main Gate Pass, only I can't remember if it's just the blue or silver one.

                                        And lemme tell you, if you ever get the chance to go to DLP and you're at least a CR (and perhaps with a Main Gate Pass), GO GO GO!! I was able to get myself and my best friend into both parks there for free, plus various merchandise discounts. It is such a fantastic perk.
