Holiday Cast Member Discounts

So I know Cast Members get 40% off all merchandise during the holidays (or until the peak season, rather), are there any other 'special' discounts offered during this time? I once seem to recall hearing that resort rooms have a bit higher percent off at that time.

from what I remember, the resort discount was higher (maybe up to 50? 60?).
And we got vouchers for a sit down meal at most restaurants (or at least it was largely discounted), a free photopass photo, and a few free snacks. :shrug: It's been a few years
The 40% merch was the best though!

Thanks for the info...anyone else able to confirm that the resort discount is, in fact, higher still?

Yeah, I think so. At least, last year it was (I think). Something like 60% off. I know that we got 50% off of two table-service meals (one inside a park, and another at a resort or Downtown Disney). Also, several coupons for free boxes of popcorn and the free Photopass picture mentioned earlier.

Thanks, Hank. Two more, possibly dumb, question. Is the 60% off good for rooms for you, yourself, only, or is it also good for friends/family members? (The "other guest bedroom" rate?)

Is the Holiday rate available when booking at any time, as long as it's for the Holidays (say I wanted to book in May for an early December trip...would the discount be 'available'?) or is it something that's announced/implemented close to the holiday season? Thanks!

They give you a booklet with all the discounts (or atleast they did) and the resort stay is valid for certain dates. Meal coupons are good for a year with blackout days and locations. The popcorn/coke vouchers are good for a few months.

You should also get some sort of gift - I've got a nifty paperweight, a lazer-image photo holder, and a silver book-fold photoframe.

Yeah, what Merf said.

The booklet is mailed to your home address, while the gift is picked up at a central location at your home park or resort, or is distributed by your department.

I'm pretty sure that the 60% is only applicable to stays with the CM in the room. I don't recall whether there was any effect upon the friends/family discount, though that may have been bumped up too. I don't believe that the discount is valid until it is "announced." You should be getting the booklet in late October.

For a bit more information, do a search on The Hub in the Walt Disney World tab for "Disney Family Holiday Celebration 2006." It's last year's info, but I doubt that much will change for this year.
