    Question CM sign in blockout dates...

    Does anyone know where there's a list of the days CMs can't use sign ins? A friend of mine would like to visit the park, and was wondering if one of his CM friends could sign him in any time soon. Thanks.

    I'm sure if he asked his CM friend, they'd be able to tell him.

    His friends currently working so we can't get a hold of him. We're trying to plan now as we have quite a few people involved, which is why I'm asking now instead of waiting til late tonight.

    For the next 2 months, August 21 is the only CM blockout date. However, the policy is that the CM must accompany guests at all times, and enforcement is getting stricter - so don't expect your friend to risk his/her job by just signing you in and going back to work.

    Wow. At all times??? I've never heard of that before. I wonder why they did that. Sounds a bit unreasonable to me. Oh well. Thanks for the heads up.

    One last question: Does anyone know if CMs get a discount on Tix?

    My cousin works in WDW and he could get 2 people in for free but he was required to stay with them the whole time they were in the park. He also got us super discounted tickets but that was a few years ago and idk how it all works for Disneyland.

    There is no unreasonableness about it, the CM is taking responsibility for their guests if they were to leave and guests were to misbehave, break the rules, steal etc. the CM would be responsible for that activity. Which usually would result in a reprimand or termination. So to ensure this doesn't happen the guests will be accompanied at all times.

    Yes, there getting really strict now days. A couple months ago some idiotic cast member sold tickets that he could sign them in for to someone he made a deal with. The day came, the family waited to meet the guy but he didnt show up. The family was outraged and went to guest services and complained. But obviously Disneyland couldn't do anything since it was against the rules on what they did. So an email went out to all cast members. So now even with my grandpa hang a silver pass, he can't sign people in and just leave cuz there really strict!

    Grown people having to be babysat is unreasonable. It's insulting and accusatory to the guest. Yes, sometimes people act up, but it's horrible to punish everyone on the assumption they'll do something wrong, just because a few do. They should trust that the CM will have good enough judgment not to sign in someone who could get them in trouble. If not, they deserve the reprimand most likely. They can do no more harm than any other guest. This is absolutely ridiculous.

    Your grandpa can sign you in and leave you by yourself. Family members do not need to be accompanied at all times, just friends.

    Well this is all off topic, but it is completely unreasonable. A lot of CM's signed people in on days they were working and they would meet their guests when they got off work.

    While a person stealing or misbehaving who had been signed in might reflect badly on the CM, it would in no way be grounds for an official reprimand or termination. In an extreme case you might be able to suspend the sign in privileges of a CS CM, but you could not for a PPT CM.
