Walt Disney World cast members struggle to get into theme parks

Walt Disney World cast members are struggling to book passes to any of the four major theme parks this spring.

Cast Members, like annual pass holders, have block-out dates based on their free ticket type (although the tickets are mostly the same). Based on the schedule for the last two days of March, all of April, and all of May, Cast Members are barred from some or all of the parks most days. Yellow means only certain parks are available, red means no parks are available, and blue means all parks are available. Only Tuesday, May 10 is blue.

Twitter user @Monse_DP – who is not a Cast Member but knows Cast Members personally – shared screenshots of the internal Park Pass booking calendar for Cast Members. In April and May, there is not a single day that Park Passes are still available for all four parks, and only ten days that Park Passes are available at certain parks. Most days are full and grayed out on the calendar.

Monse writes, “How can Disney even claim that ‘Park Access’ is a perk for employees when it’s their locked-in schedule? ! Keep in mind that even on non-blocked days it is [all] provided they get a reservation, so basically a Hunger Games situation for them.

The Park Pass calendar is currently available until 2024 and the system is not going away according to executives.

What do you think of the Park Pass reservation system? Let us know in the comments.
