The Walt Disney Company is starting December off with a gift for the talented Cast Members that serve in the Disney Parks. Check out the 2 great perks that Cast Members may choose between, and also weigh in on which perk you would choose.
We are thankful for the many talented Cast Members who create Disney magic for Guests every day. We often call these magical moments Pixie Dust. You can check out the many Pixie Dust moments that our writers have received over the years.
The Cast Members are truly what sets the Disney Parks apart from other Theme Parks. Have you experienced Pixie Dust in the Parks? Find out how you can say Thank You to a Cast Member that helped to make your Disney vacation even more magical HERE.

2 Great Perks for Cast Members
In November 2019, the Walt Disney Company launched Disney+ which streamed the magic of Disney to homes across the United States. Last December, Disney Cast Members were given a choice of which they would rather enjoy for the upcoming year: the usual Disney Park Main Entrance Pass or a Disney+ package.
In 2019 disney cast member could choose a disney+ bundle or a Disney Park Main Entrance Pass for the upcoming year.
Let’s look at these 2 options a bit more closely. The Disney Parks Main Entrance Pass would allow Cast Members to take family and friends to the Theme Parks for free for an entire year. This pass is subject to black-out dates and restrictions.
The Disney+ bundle includes Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu for an entire year. Even if Cast Members choose the Disney+ bundle they will receive self-admission to the Theme Park and Cast Members discounts. This pass is also subject to black-out dates and restrictions.
Cast Members that choose this bundle would simply not be able to extend the Disney magic to family members and friends. Those Cast Members that chose the Disney+ bundle in 2019 will continue to enjoy the streaming service until the 2021 selection perk selection date.
Which Perk Would You Choose?
If you were a Disney Cast Member which perk would you choose? I guess it would depend upon if many of your family or friends already have Annual Passes.
To me this would be an easy decision and I would choose the Disney Parks Main Entrance Pass. This would be such a fun way to share the magic of Disney with my family.
Which perk would you choose? Do many of your family members already have Annual Passes to make the Disney+ bundle more desirable? Do you think you would still visit the Parks as often if you were a Cast Member? Share which perk you would choose on our Facebook Page.
