Yes, she can add the dining - she just has to call to do it. I believe it's about 50%.

I'm pretty sure the current discount is only 15% for family and friends , closer to 40% if the CP OR CM stays in the room with you

That's incorrect...the discount is 40% for friends/family, or 50% if the CM is in the room.

Little update to help answer those questions...We've been checking the Hub for a Friends & Family Moderate POR stay Aug 3-9.

Running the online Hub method shows 40% off a Royal Guest Room -Pool View but I could not add the DP to it while online.

I called this morning to verbally do it and was given 50% off and the DP was $46.99 per adult which is nearly $10 off the daily rack rate.

Caviot to that is the Cast Member must call to make the reservation - so my Daughter called right back and I have the room at $780 plus $1128 for 6 nights Plus Dining Plan or $1908 total rounded to nearest $$$

Have the Cast member make the call if you are ready to book!

Not a chance at a 50% dining discount, that would be miraculous!

But after calling the Cast Member reservation line, we ended up getting another 10% off of our room discount making it a total of a 50% room discount with friends and family.

The DDP was discounted too but only about $10 off of the DDP price which is $56.95 per night per person. So we got the DDP for about $46.90 per night per person, But after they credited us $240 because we had alreaady paid for the room in full. the balance we owe is 1440 after adding the dining plan.

We are there 9 nights and there are 4 of us, so $1440 balance makes the dining plan actually cost us $40 a night per person. I know that is a kooky way of justifying the DDP cost, but we already paid for the room at a 40% discount. So I will take the extra 10% as a bonus and put it towards the DDP Discount.

Either way we owe $1440 after adding the DDP with 1 table 1 counter and a snack with the refill mug.


Im happy!!!!

My daughter is currently a cast member (Spring College Program + extension) whose program ends August 2nd. She is planning on going seasonal after her program ends. When she goes seasonal, is she still considered a cast member and will she be able to get a resort discount? She made a room only reservation at the Disneyland Hotel for August 13-19 and she is under the impression that she will be able to keep her cast member ID card when she goes seasonal.

Yes, my DD went seasonal after her CP. They are still CMs and get their discounts.

Thanks so much for the reply. So she will get to keep her cast member ID? I have read where some kids have to turn everything in when they check out of their apartments. She works tomorrow so she is going to talk to a manager about how it works. On the reservation confirmation it does state that they have to show cast member ID at check in. She has two co-workers who are extending until January so I know they can get her a discount, but it is not as good as the cast member discount.

My DD had to get a new ID, but that was in 2010 when CPs had a red ID with no photo on it. I believe that CPs now have the same ID as all CMs - blue with a photo. As long as hers is like that I think she'd be able to keep it and use it. Otherwise, she'll have to get a new ID anyway before she works for the first time as seasonal.

I'm pretty sure her ID is blue and I know for sure it has her picture on it. She says it doesn't have an expiration date. She checked with a co-worker of hers who went seasonal and she told her she kept her same ID card. I have read different stories here on the dis boards about keeping their ID. Hopefully she finds out for sure from a manager. She did have to get a new ID when she extended and Disney goofed somehow and I know she and her friend had to get their pictures taken with their costumes on!

CP ID's are blue with no photo and no expiration date. If they lose their ID and get it replaced, they will receive one with a Photo. At the end of the program, you are to turn in your ID. If you do not, it will be deactivated and you will be docked on your final paycheck (to be refunded upon its return). The same goes with your MainGate. These cards are technically property of the Walt Disney Company. If you stay on as seasonal, you will keep the same ID. If you go Full or Part Time after your program, you will need to get a new ID as there is a code on the back that differentiates for discounts and the like...
