    And while we're on the subject...WHAT was Disneyland dedicated to again...you know...on that plaque?

    Oh I remember...

    Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America

    But gosh....we better not put an AMERICAN flag on our lapel. What would people think? Cinderella, obviously, shouldn't have one. But CM's working in stores? In fact, ANY of the CM's who currently are wearing lanyards with pins on them...what's the big deal if they have a flag pin?

    And just HOW is that pushing "an agenda on their playtime?"
    Well written post. You changed my mind with your eloquency. Bring on the flag pins.

    Technically we can not accept gifts from guest. You have to refuse 3 times. If the guest still insist you take the gift and turn in into a lead or manager.

    And seeing the flag reminds me of fireworks and hot dogs, not death and destruction.
    Sadly, we are in the minority against the rest of the World who have a different opinion about that.

    Cast members may volunteer to be "Pin traders". Certain leads are required to be pin traders. When they do this, they have guidelines to follow. They check out a lanyard with a specific number of pins. They may only trade genuine Disney pins. At the end of their shift, the lanyard is returned and checked in. It needs to have the same number of pins on it that it was checked out with.

    Yes, they do. And, when they turn it into the leads, it is donated to one of Disney's volunteer organizations. They will be suspended or fired (depending on their status) if they fail to do this. And they have shoppers who will test on these items.

    This is from the Disneyland Cast Portal module on Cast costuming:

    Pins and Buttons
    The Company from time to time will make available to Cast Members pins or buttons celebrating a holiday, major Resort event, or special promotion. In addition to the nametag and the nametag pins described above, up to two separate approved Company-issued pins/buttons may be worn directly on the costume. A Cast Member may also elect to wear a discreet American flag pin, no larger than the size of a quarter. Pins or buttons should be worn on the upper right shoulder area opposite the nametag, although this placement may occasionally vary due to costume design.
    Any request to allow a pin or button to be worn on the costume must be approved in advance by the Cast Costuming Team. Following approval, a pin or button may be worn for the duration of the event or celebration, often for the day of issue only.

    I don't make the rules I was just reporting on what they are. As for taking tips when in a non tip able position I have seen CMs suspended for being seen taking tips.

    We have a little MC FOCM (Friends of Cast Members) group. There are buttons available to purchase on the MC cafepress site. I've given out several to CM's & have never had a problem. I don't expect them to wear it on their costume- it's just kind of a nice gesture to hand it to them. Of course, I also give compliments at City Hall if a CM is really great!

    Hate to break it to you, but there is NO way they'd wear them due a ton of rules, even if they did want to. If you really want to compliment a CM on a job well done, put in a compliment at city hall. It's very rare and means a lot.

    CMs don't care too much for me.

    Ok... that's a lie.

    They just barely know me. I'm just more of a temporary annoyance.
