Magic Kingdom Special Event Lanyards - Cast Member Exclusive

One of the best parts about working at the Magic Kingdom was being able to attend all of the different special events that were being held at the park after hours. I personally worked: Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, Night of Joy, Grad Night, and Disney's Pirate and Princess Party.

Each special event hosted it's own theme and included events, music, shows and even special character appearances. From a Cast Member perspective, I always enjoyed working these events because the parks were much less crowded AND we got to enjoy all the special event activites as well!

Cast Members working the events were given special event lanyards that not only identified them as special event Cast Members, but there was also information provided on the back side of the lanyards that included parade times, activity locations and other answers to frequently asked guest questions. the Disney's Pirate and Princess Party is no longer being offered, so I am especially happy to have held on to this particular lanyard.


  1. What an awesome memory. I wanted to do the college program when I was a first year student but my major wouldn't allow it. However, I still love Disney as well. We would always get new neck lanyards and cover them with pins and start trading with cast members and other people with pins. Thanks so much for sharing your stories. I really enjoy reading stories like these.

  2. Thanks for posting.Chocolate taste is most unforgettable experience when Hens participate in hen nights in London.
