    I thought Disney didn't own the Disney Stores anymore, that they're run by Children's Place now.

    I don't want to say this cause I feel like I'm jaded by the Dstore (having worked there for roughly 3 yrs and seen all sorts of politics) and crushing your dreams but...
    Technically you don't have your foot in with Disney... cause they don't own the stores. You have your foot in w/ Hoop Retail (aka the people that own children's place).
    On the plus side, in any other interview people always ask you about your Dstore experience cause they usually think it's still owned by Disney.
    Sorry

    Congrats though!! I hope you have a fabulous time. The 30% discount rocks if you're a crazy Disney fan (which i figure you are if you're a micechatter ^_^).

    Yeah I knew that it was owned by the Children's Place. But Disney obviously has something to do with it right? I mean it IS the Disney Store...I am still super excited though. 30% discount?!? Woooh!!!

    Disney Stores no longer get discounts or free admissions at the Resorts, Disneyland/WDW/Paris/Hong Kong. You are not a Cast Member... you are not a Disney employee. You are a Children's Place employee.

    They aren't even listed on the Disney employee internet portal anymore.

    I don't know who keeps saying that we're not called cast members anymore but they are misinformed.
    Also you do still get admission into the resorts but it's limited to 3 tickets one park each.
    We also still get access to Company D (about twice a year).

    So though it's not at all what it use to be, there are still a few Disney perks

    Not only that, but plenty of companies can call their employees Cast Members. If The Children's Place wants to continue to address their employees as such, they are still Cast Members. Perhaps not in the traditional Disney sense, but CMs nontheless.

    The unfortunate side of the internet is that statements sometimes come off as cold, even if it's not intended.

    To the OP: congratulations! Depending on where your aspirations lie, I think that hard work and your enthusiasm will be very important as you begin your career. I've met so many people who were able to move up to the corporate level by getting a start at The Disney Store. Don't lose sight of what your goals are!

    Title should read, "I'm a Children's Place Cast Member" not an "Official Disney Cast Member".

    You should hurry up and hire into the Parks and be a real Disney CM. What's taking you so long? Move down here pronto! Ha ha.
