    Main Gate Passes

    I've heard people mention different types of main gate passes... My girlfriend has a blue main gate pass, and I've heard of silver. How many different types of cast main gate passes are there, and what is the difference in benefits? Also, is their availability based on seniority or position or a combination of both?

    Re: Main Gate Passes

    There's three. Blue, Green, and Silver.

    I don't know the exact details about Green, but Silver is basically for managers and Cast Members who has 15+ years of service. Silver passes technically have no limit on how many times you can use it in year.

    there's quite a few more too- purple, red, silver, gold, one with a diagonal stripe.... those are higher than the basic blue and silver... ones that i'll probably never see in my lifetime! haha I believe the portal describes all of them and how many uses they have, what you have to be to get each one, etc.... if you're truly that interested your gf could find it there!

    Actually, purple, red/pink, yellow, blue, and blue with orange stripe are all varieties of ID cards, and not Main Entrance Passes.

    silver is for yourself and you can bring 4 others in with you.. there are a few blockout dates but otherwise it's unlimited (this is old info... could have changed in recent years).

    I saw them on the portal somewhere- you know how you can look and see how many times you've used your maingate? there's a link somewhere around there where it gives you descriptions (and pictures) of all the maingates....

    I am quite certain that the only colors of Main Entrance Passes are green (although I have yet to encounter this one), blue, and silver, and ID cards come in green, purple, red/pink, yellow, blue, and blue with an orange diagonal stripe. I don't know where you are getting your information, and I haven't been able to find anything supporting it.

    Red is a VIP pass given to random special people. The first person to buy a ticket to Disneyland, for instance, got a red pass. It's basically a silver pass that never expires. I think there's also a special main gate for the really really high up people, the people who will need to bring in lots of people on a regular basis for wining, dining, and meetings. Don't know what color that is, though.

    ok well since this is such a lifechanging topic, I went and looked it up for you.... sign into the portal, then on the blue toolbar on the right that says More Links, click Main Entrance Pass/Comp. Ticket Usage, when that page comes up, click Main Entrance Passes. And then there they are, in all their glory on the left side of the screen. There's eight. And if you want to see the descriptions for each, you can click on the corresponding link.... I'd even post screen shots, but something tells me that I'd get threatened by over-jealous, yet well meaning, CM's, telling me that I don't value the magic...

    hopefully that helps...and if you still don't believe me, then I give up...and hope you don't work the turnstiles... lol

    Ive heard about a Gold also. For top executives only or so I hear.
