How many guests can a cm bring into the parks for free?

My dsis and I have a CM friend that wants to bring us into the parks for free for 2 of our days and hang out with us but I am not sure if he can get us all in ( there are 8 of us). We don't want to be rude and ask how many. I can get my own tickets for my family. Anybody know the answer?

Depends on the number of dependents the CM has. But for most CMs, it's three on any given day.

That said, it would not be considered rude to ask the CM what the parameters are. They may not realize you're looking at a party of eight, or they may have meant that they'd just sign in as many as they can and then the rest are on their own for tickets.

If someone makes an offer like that, you need to ask THEM exactly what they mean and what the rules / options are. Because it can vary widely based on where the CM works and at what level. They could also have a whole bunch of comps that they earned at volunteer events or something (if you sing in Candlelight, for example, you earn a one day / one park ticket for every performance).

The only one who can really answer your question is your friend.

However many of your clan this darling darling man is able to convey into the Kingdom (not to be confused with Saudi Arabia), please do right by your host and greet him with a bottle of single malt.

Yes, indeed. Do that ... IF you want to get your CM friend fired!

You can certainly gift the CM with something, but not at the parks, please. Any CM seen taking anything that looks like a gift (including gift cards and cash) in exchange for signing someone in will be disciplined up to and including termination.

I know cobright wasn't necessarily saying, "Bring a bottle of scotch to the parks and hand it to him", but just wanted to make the "no payment for sign-ins" policy clear.

Carry on.

Well, I wouldn't flat-out say, "So ... we have a party of eight. How many of them can you get in?"

Maybe try, "Thank you for offering to sign us in! Where's the best place for us to get tickets for the rest of the group?"

My guess is that CM will ask, "How many?" You can tell them and then leave it up to the CM to offer more (or not).

Indeed. I think etiquette dictates a gracious reply sometime in the immediate days following such an act of kindness.
