One of the unique perks for being a cast member at any of the Disney Parks, comes with different things to use throughout the year. Even so as an example is the Main Entrance pass allows, cast members to get friends and family into the theme parks for a set amount of days per-year throughout the season. Also, cast members who choose either option will still be able to self-admit into theme parks subject to block out dates restrictions.
