When I think about my happy places to visit, of course I think of the parks, but I cannot imagine how much more of a happier place it is for our Cast Members. Therefore, it is wonderful that this month they are receiving a wonderful discount on merchandise.
Have you seen the creative videos that Cast Members have been creating on their own of heading back “Home?” Here is one that that brought me to the point of tears and had to open up a new box of tissues.
You can watch it here.
Just this morning Disney also shared a new video of Walt Disney World Cast Members returning to work with a focus on healthy and safety.
Once again, I could not get over watching the excitement of our wonderful Cast Members that truly make our special place so magical.
Discount Offered to WDW Cast Members
It made me very happy to learn today that Walt Disney is offering Cast Members a 50% discount on merchandise from July 5-31, 2020.
The discount can be applied to Disney owned and operated locations and is valid for working and furloughed Cast Members.
Exclusions to the Discount
Some exclusions apply:

The discount also applies at open resorts, excluding Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, and Disney’s Yacht Club Resort.

Cast Members must present a valid company-issued ID. The discount is only valid at open Walt Disney World locations only.
For more information, Cast Members are invited to visit the Hub.
If you had a 50% discount count as a Cast Member what items would be on your list? Mine certainly would be a spirit jersey, a collection of purses and a pair of ears! Let us know on Kenny the Pirate’s Facebook Page, or join our crew and continue the discussion!
