Test Track GM VIP entrance

Does anyone know if the TT GM private entrance can still be used by GM employees?

When DH and I were there in Dec. the lounge was closed, but we did get Fast Passes at the desk where the new cars are.

Didn't get to go to the front of the line like old times.

On a paper that I have it says that if the lounge is closed, show a crew member your gm Id and you can gain special access to Test Track without waiting in line.

I have a friend (a GM employee) who was there last week. She told me the lounge was closed, but is supposed to open by the end of the month. Not sure if that will happen, but it won't be too much longer.

My point was that while all Chevrolet employees are part of GM not every GM employee is part of Chevrolet.

GM makes Chevrolet, it's the same company! All Gm employees have access, no matter what location, plant, division, etc.

Maybe he meant "government motors" since the bailout.

The good news is GM employees get quicker access. The bad news is that it's access to Test Track.

I kept my badge when I retired but it's the same one I use to show before retirement. GM use to give out the golden badges to retires DH has one. They quit giving those out before I retired.

If you don't have a badge maybe call Disney and find out what you would need. If you find out please pass along the info in case I lose my badge.

The latest ticket order form says retirees can print an ID from the retiree website or present a pension stub with financial info blacked out. I would assume the requirements would be the same to get in the lounge
