    Hi! My sister is currently in the college program at Disney World. We are planning on visiting her and she is planning on using her main gate pass to get us into the parks. Does anyone know what the blackout dates for the main gate pass are for 2012?

    It depends. Not only are their black out dates but if the Park gets to a certain capacity then the CM pass will not work.
    Below is a list of blackout dates I was able to find by google searching Cast member black out dates WDW. Just remember Disney can and most often does change the black out dates during high volume days. For the most up to date blackout date information the best thing to do is for your sister to check the hub. SHe should know what the hub is or be able to ask someone how to log into it.

    FYI, if she has her Main Gate already, the blackout dates are usually printed on the little envelope carrying sleeve they give with it (assuming they still do that).

    They no longer do that. Plus, the dates are only released 3 months in advance (on the HUB).

    Man, as if Main Gates weren't enough of a pain for new CMs to figure out...
