  • [Question] Can cast members get a GAC?

    I started working at WDW a few months back, and I enjoy spending time at the parks on some of my days off. I was just recently diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome. It doesn't affect me too much on the job, as I'm usually indoors and my shifts aren't that long/strenuous. But I've noticed my last few "for fun" trips haven't gone so well. Is it possible for cast members to get a GAC card, like an annual pass holder would? Are doctors notes necessary? I'd bring it if I had to, but I don't really want any coworkers to know of my issue. But would I have to show them my employee ID and all? I feel like they'd judge me on getting it.

    Any guest can get a GAC. If you're not working and you enter a park, you are considered a guest. There is no reason why they wouldn't give you one. No documentation is needed.

      They will not accept a doctor's note even if you have it, they are not allowed to question any guest who says they have a disability.

        I'm not sure how a GAC would help you with CFS. The policy for dealing with mobility and stamina issues is to recommend a wheelchair. There isn't a place to sit while you're waiting, and there isn't a GAC stamp for shortening wait times. Either a wheelchair and/or a Fastpass/touring plan strategy seem more like things that would help you.
