I am new cast member with a question regarding vacations. I am CR with no accrued paid vacation and lets say I want to go away for a week in May. Do I understand right that I wouldn't be eligible for pre-approved time off and would only know the week before when the schedule comes out? It seems like it would be hard to plan any kind of vacation because I couldn't buy plane tickets or book hotel if I wouldn't know if I got the time off until the week before the trip. So there is no way to get preapproved unpaid time off. If anyone could enlighten me I would appreciate it.
