There was MM at 7AM.
They let us in around 7:40 for a rope drop. And I was talking to CMs and mentioned that I was a CM too. They never said anything about slipping under the rope and going on my way.
So I waited until 8AM with everyone else.
As a main entrance worker, CM's cannot go in early and your blue pass will not work. This is to ensure that the guests who have it, get it. We (cast members) can sign in at any time after early morning. We can go almost any time. The early entry turnstyle is programmed to accept early enty tickets only, and should will print a ticket for a blue pass. As for entering in at the Grand or the Monorail, the turnstyles there are set for the same early entry setting and will not allow anyone without an early entry pass. Hope this helps!
