Disney is walking back a controversial decision that offered Cast Members a choice between a Main Gate Pass (for theme park admission) or a Disney+ bundle subscription. They have confirmed that in 2023, Cast Members will get both.
The Disney Parks Main Entrance Pass grants Cast Members the ability to take family members and friends to the theme parks for free, with some blockout dates and restrictions. Regardless of what perk they opt for, Cast Members will continue to receive a limited number of complimentary park tickets each year. They will also still receive self-admission to the parks (subject to Cast Member blockouts), as well as the usual discounts offered to Cast.
The Disney+ bundle provides access to Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN.
