    These really don't happen any more and it;'s sad. Disney doesn't have much in the way of Family events.

    The retirement plan poorly represents the cast members and is only offered after a couple decades of working for the company. This is a very grey topic and varies from person to person

    They hold great events that involve the disney franchise and items that involve everyone at the company in their love for disney.

    Every one gets to participate in a Cast celebration on company time annually. Some organizations also schedule special Cast parties quarterly.

    The only social event is movie tickets, but there is only one time and day and its not ideal.

    Holiday parties (depends on the location because managers decide if they want to have one or not) and fun opportunities like getting to see Haunted Mansion with the lights on at 5am before the park opens (usually invite-only). I didn't partake in many events but there are a lot. Especially for College Program CMs. Disney Housing is constantly having events for just fun or for networking. Disney is great at socializing their Cast. The only bad part is that the cool things like behind-the-scenes tours are usually only for a certain Zone (like all CMs from the whole east side of Main Street or the Marketside area of Disney Springs) and are hard to find. Make friends with your supervisors. I am super shy and I didn't ask about these opportunities and I wish I had. Sometimes they're not even advertised. If you work at Disney Springs, good luck. We were treated like we just worked at a Disney-themed mall that Disney doesn't even own (but.... they do), and I was constantly hearing about cool things that other Merchandise CMs got to do, like Big Top Souvenir CMs got to see some rides with lights on or other behind the scenes things. You can pick up shifts at other parks/stores/resorts and try to socialize with the regular CMs to get the inside scoop on an upcoming tour, but the tour is usually limited to those CMs. A Haunted Mansion tour was offered at my store in Disney Springs but I missed the deadline, and it seemed to have limited spots anyway.

    Disney provides a lot of opportunities to see Disney-produced events.
