    Re: CM Vacations

    You can always file a vacation form. The only difference is you use vacation time. Those of us that do have vacation time don't have to use our hours when we take a vacation. When you fill out the form, it asks for how many vacation hours that you'd like to lose.

    I am a CR. And I hired in May 6, 2005. That means that I don't accrue vacation time.

    Not that scheduling would EVER approve a one-month long paid vacation.

    two questions: are all cast members eligible for vacations, and is eligibility based upon time served or senority?

    When I worked at Disneyland I got accured vacation time and I was a CR. In fact I hired in on the exact same day as melmel, May 6, 2005. I was converted to RFT this past summer so on top of vacation time I got accured paid sick days as well. I was given a week off this past July with no problems. It might have to do with the departments though. I hired into attractions.

    Oh yeah. I'm in Foods. Foods got the new contract first, and so we got screwed. Watcha gonna do?

    The new foods' union contract does not allow for Casual Regular CMs to accrue vacation hours.

    C'est la vie.

    Disney's the only job I know of that will let me just work on the weekend.

    I apologize for going off topic , but scheduling to a certain degree is flexible? or does that also have to do with senority?

    Re: CM Vacations

    I am not sure how California and Florida differ, but here goes my 2 cents worth. In Florida parks only Full Time Cast Members get Vacation. All Foods, Merchandise, and Attractions Cast Members fall under the same rules---You get 1 week vacation(5 days vac and 2 days off) you start accruing days of benefit(paid vacation days) according to how many hours you work. But even though you have vacation days in your bank--you can't use vacation until you have been a full time Cast Member for 9 months.

    In Florida, they don't schedule unpaid days off except for your normal 2 days off in a week. Once a schedule is out, you can give away your shifts or plead your case with a manager in your location to see if you can have extra days off.

    I believe once you hit 3 years seniority(it could be 5 now) you go up to 2 weeks vacation per year.

    Once you are in your 17th year, you get 3 weeks vacation per year.

    Re: CM Vacations

    In California, you put in your vacation request for how many days off and how much vacation pay that you want to use. For example, you can put in for 14 days off with 5 days of pay.

    We can also put in requested days off (RDOs) that are unpaid and in addition to our 2 days off.
