Disney College Program Discounts & Perks

Disney College Program Discounts and Perks


UPDATE AS OF Feb 25, 2016 -  This page has become so popular! It's time for a HUGE update. Anything with the "NEW->" next to it, is apart of the 2016 Update! So please read about these new perks and discounts.

Many of the Downtown Disney Discounts will be no good because DTD is now Disney Springs and it's going through A LOT of changes.

All ON PROPERTY Discount have been updated. OFF Propety Discounts HAVE NOT been updated yet!

Typos will be fixed later.

END OF UPDATE - Thanks!!

There are many discounts and perks available to cast members. Discounts in everything from car care to dining. Not only do college program cast members get the discounts of regular cast member, but there are some goodies and perks available to college participants only.

I'll start with on-property and off-property discounts for Disney College Program cast members. Moving on to the Cast Only shops and warehouses. Finishing off withe DCP only perks.


ON-PROPERTY DISCOUNTS



20% off Merchandise - Cast Members receive a 20 percent discount on most merchandise at the Walt Disney World Resort with a 10 percent discount on items such as videos and DVDs.

Seasonal discounts may also apply. For example, the Holiday Discount (40%) extends into mid-February 2014.

NEW-> Speaking of Holiday Discount . . . PLEASE FALL CPs, take advantage of that discount. Wait until Late Oct/ Nov to purchase Merchandise, this will save you a ton. Unless you want specific items that temporary or even themed items like Food & Wine, save your coins. SPRING CPs come with cash because the 40% off ends in Mid-Feb. You can take advantage of this discount until Mid-Late Feb. Purchase your goods when you arrive.

NEW--> Did you know you can get a heavy discount on luxury perfumes and cosmetics by using the holiday discount to shop in the Guarlain at La Signature in the France Pavilion. The 40% holiday discount applies to this store!! They sell Dior perfumes (my favorite!) and other high end brands. It's not overpriced, it's the same as department stores, believe me I asked.

Some more merchandise discount:
  • Many Operating Participants, for example, several Downtown Disney (DTD) Area stores, offer a Cast Member discount. Most are 15% Off.
    • Arribas Brothers
    • Basin in DTD
    • Cirque du Soeil Store
    • Curl at DTD
    • LEGO Store at DTD
    • Pop Gallery at DTD
    • Fuego at DTD
    • Harley Davidson at DTD
    • Hoypoloi at DTD
    • Something Silver (NEW)
    • Little MissMatched (NEW)
    • Rubio Artist
    • Sosa Cigars 
    • and many more!
  • Locations in EPCOT
    • Mitsukoshi Store at EPCOT
    • Tea Caddy at EPCOT
    • Givenchy Boutique at EPCOT
    • Guerlain at La Signature at EPCOT
    • Karamell Kuche at EPCOT
  • Others: Basin White at The Grand Floridan, DisneyStore.com
NEW -> Of course, many merchandise locations within the parks give a discount such The Emporium in Magic Kingdom, Mouse Gears in Epcot, etc.

NEW--> Arribas Brothers is a store many CPs look at but don't take advantage of  . . . *sigh*. You know the fancy store with all the crystal embellished Disney items in the Mexico Pavilion, Downtown Disney and Magic Kingdom . . . yeah that's Arribas Brothers and you get 20% percent off. They sell beautiful princess tiaras (I do mean beautiful) for like $15 - 20, so do check it out. Oh and please look around the Magic Kingdom location, it's tucked away in the back -- a real hidden gem, it's like a museum. Totally gorgeous!! I discovered around the end of my program.

NEW -> Did you know that you get a merchandise discount on certain foods? For example, Sweet Spells on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood Studios will give you a discount of the their sweets such as, the infamous Candy Apples, Rice Krispies, Chocolate covered strawberries, cotton candy etc. Big Top Souenirs in Magic Kingdom Fantasyland also gives a discount on sweets and treats such as lemonade, cotton candy, candy apples, strawberries, mickey macaroons,etc.  There maybe locations in DAK and Epcot (Possibly Karamell Kuche in Epcot). It's mainly places that dub as a merch/sweet shop location.

20% off Dining & Food - Limited to table service (see image below), resort quick service dining (all resorts), Animal Kingdom (Flame Tree BBQ, Pizzafari, Restaurantsaurus, and Tusker House).

Many Downtown Disney Area restaurants, offer a Cast Member discount - Rainforest Cafe, Planet Hollywood (20% off) - I think this is a goner, House of Blues (free clubs entry and food discount), Joffery's Coffee & Tea (20% off) and more.

NEW-> Not much has changed, as far as the restaurants are concerned, and the discount amount is the same. However, I urge you to watch out for BLACK OUT DATES on dining. I got messed up 2 times because of this in the FALL.

NEW--> A huge tip: Disney uses the same supplier for a lot of their food. That means the burgers, fries, hot dogs, etc. are the same at the parks QSFB and resort QSFB locations. However, the difference is you get a DISCOUNT in ALL RESORT QSFB. So if you're on a binge to try as many unique Disney QSFB foods, have a look at the resorts. Resort dining is a lot of fun, they have so many options. I highly recommend POP Century's, Animal Kingdom Lodge, Art of Animation and the All Star Resorts quick service food courts for trying out foods.

NEW--> 50's Primetime and Sci-Fi are must do. Avoid Mama Melrose's - it so basic, it's ridiculous. I ate there with a huge group and well all agreed it was so plain. If you want great Italian - dine in the Epcot Pavilion.

The image above is every restaurant on property where we receive a discount. Some of the places in the World Showcase are privately owned (Tokyo Dining, Marrekesh), so you will need to ask if their is a discount read my update below.

NEW--> Again, if you're going to dine out. Please take advantage of the 40% Cast Dining because it will save you some serious cash. I learned from another CP, that Grand Floridian Cafe is not to be missed and you can eat there on the cheap with this 40% discount. This list changes of restaurants usually never changes, just the dates but still be on the lookout.

NEW--> OKAY, please do yourself a favor and eat at Whispering Canyon, it's a wonderful experience and so much fun. Not to mention Wilderness Lodge is so beautiful. Sanaa's and Jiko's are a must do, and I've heard this from many CP's. Artist Pointe is top of the line according to guest, and ESPN Club is a lot of fun with great food and apparently they TV's in the bathroom stalls. HA!

NEW --> Kouzzina's by Cat Cora's is closed and has been replaced with another restaurant. I can't remember the name (bleh).

Disney Dining Plan Discounts

Discounts for Disney Dining Plan are released throughout the year. The Weekly DCP Newsletter will notify you via email when the discount is available for Cast Members. You can also access the HUB and see if there are any discounts available. Also calling the Reps on Disney Reservation Hotline will help in finding out if the discount is available.

It's usually 15% off the price, but can be higher . . . possibly up to 50% off. I've seen $35.00-40.00 after the discount is applied to your plan.

Resort Discounts

50% off Cast Members - The Cast Member must be staying in the room to receive this discount.
40% off Friends & Family - You DO NOT need the Cast Member to stay with you when using this discounts.

Seasonal Discounts - The room discount can jump up to 60% off rates during the Christmas Holidays.

NEW--> Here's a good rule of thumb, if the hotel rooms are heavily discount like over 50% then the dining plan will most definitely be discounted. Having a Dining Plan is SOOOOOOOOOO worth it.

For 3 adults, we pay 100 per person for 3 days.

We totaled all of our dining and it would've been $600+ for all 3 of us for 3 days. We ate at Teppan Edo, Le Chefs de France, Katsura Grill, Hollywood Brown Derby, Backlot Express, and Be Our Guest - Lunch. We also got snacks!!

NEW--> Please, please, please call the Disney Cast Reservation line, to get the optimal discount of dining and hotel. Also, you may need to speak with more than one cast member to achieve certain results, I experienced this first hand with my booking. Also when I booked for dining, I was given a discount during a peak season (beginning of MAY).

NEW --> About AMC Dine IN Theatre - You do not get a discount on the food here, just tickets, and even the employees don't even get a discount (yes an employee told me this). It was a cool experience with pretty good food but pricey.

NEW --> Jellyrolls is SOOO worth it, yall!! DO IT! It's free entry for cast members - MUST BE 21!! Get a large red 16-18 ounce solo cup of Sex on The Beach (i think that's name- pretty sure though) for $7 and there's FREE Popcorn ALL NIGHT (help yourself). Plenty of seating. It's free to request songs, but peple give $1 to hear there favorite songs. It's so lively and fun!! This a CHEAP Activity for CPs. If you don't drink, it's a completely free activity - you can get in free and eat free popcorn all night while hearing your favorite jams.

Recreation


  • Splitsville at DTD - Great discount offered throughout the year - I believe we paid $10 for an hour - this is cheap for Downtown Disney
  • Tri-Circle D Ranch at Fort Wilderness - Around $23 for 1 -1.5 Hours for Cast Members (there's set times 1 and 2:30pm ONLY) or just look at horses - so pretty 2 Hour 
  • WDW Mini Golf - 50 Off Around $7-8 per course (There are at 2 - Fntastia -- 2 Winter/Summer) for Cast Members

  • WDW Golf - Fun, There is a discount - do this with a min. of 4 people or get a randomly placed with another couple (this can turn out bad)
  • WDW Guided Bass Fishing - It's $170  plus tax for an excusrion
NEW :: PLEASE READ --> OMG Please take the time during your program to visit the Contemporary to participate in their water sport activities. It is DIRT CHEAP for cast members.

Me and my friend paid $20 to DRIVE a boat through the Seven Seas Lagoon. This is the water surrounding MK Resorts which is Contemp, Wilderness, Fort, Poly, & Grand.

We also went in front of MK where the Ferry Boat docks are, that is an amazing photo op! We could go anywhere!!! We also caught a glimpses of the abandoned Disney water park and the abandoned Discover Island.

This was in  an 1 hour, you can drop your boat off at any MK Resort with a dock! Do note that one of you (it's a 2 person boat) needs a license. They also have jet skis and other fun things like tubing and parasailing ALL FOR A DISCOUNT!!! Don't let the prices discourage you, DO IT!!

NEW--> ALSO Go Horesback riding for 1 - 1.5 hour at Tri-Circle D Ranch for just $20. IT'S WORTH IT! Sorry for all the caps! But these are Disney Hidden Gems, that many CPs don't visit. The horses are beautiful and it's a ton of fun. Great for a beginner and even experienced riders will appreciate the experience. You must call to reserve through the Rec Line and then pay once you get there.

NEW--> DO the Mini Golf Courses! It's like $7-8 for cast members. I had the best night of my life Mini Golfing at the Fantasia course, in the rain with music and you can hear Fantasmic. It was so much fun!! I also went to the Summer/Winter Course and it was a great way to start our day before we headed to Blizzard Beach (they're right next to each other - you can Talk). Mini-Golf is a great late night activity because the course close at 11PM!!! However, be mindful of the Tran-stars schedule. I recommend Fantasia Gardens for late nights and Winter for day trips.

Note: I do have photos of all this and will post them up.

Other Entertainment


  • Disney Quest - About $20.00 for cast members.
  • Blizzard Beach & Typhoon Lagoon -  After free promotions, it's 50% off during the season.
NEW--> They're getting rid of Disney Quest Mid-2016! Please, please go before it closes!!!! If you've never been before, go! You will feel like a real kid. I loved it the first time I went, and went 4 times during my program. It was $20.00 for cast members. This is a great place to go ALONE because there are so many games and so much to do. Experience it!!

NEW--> Okay, let me just say I LOVE TYPHOON LAGOON. I lived in that park on my day off. SPRING CPs it's FREE ENTRY , usually between Jan-March and FALL CPs it's usually FREE Sep-Nov. There will definitely be FREE Entries - just got to know when. Blizzard is also free entry, it's fantastic if you LOVE slides, but the lazy river is only 3 FT!! BOO!

  9. I'm very confused about how the complimentary tickets work. I've tried searching this thread, but I couldn't find a clear answer and things have recently changed with the new 150/300/600 hour rules.

    Once my cast member son reaches the allotted hours, does he get sent tickets? I know he has to accompany us into the parks, but do we get magic bands as well? Or do we not get magic bands?

    Any help is appreciated!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. All Maingates are mailed to the cast member home mailing address. I assume once he hits those hours, it will be sent to him. To get the magic bands, he has to order them through the Disney's official website by linking his maingates with his account. Onced the accounts are linked they will mail the magic bands.

I think I saw elsewhere that CPs can get up to 3 people in for free for park hopper tickets, up to 6 times throughout their term, excepting of course the blackout dates. Can you confirm this? And is there a discount on purchasing tickets beyond those 3 freebees?

  15. My daughter starts the program in August. We would like to take a trip to visit in December. Do we have to wait until August to book in order to get the discount?

  16. Hey there -- just a heads up, unless it's changed since I worked there in 2014, there's a discount on La Nouba tickets! The % off varies based on the time of year, but if CPs are buying La Nouba tickets, they should definitely show their blue ID!

  17. If you book a disney cruise do you have to go on it while your program is going on. For example, can i book a Disney cruise with my cast member discount for March 2017 if my program ends in January
