Welcome to Cast Member Christmas!


In 2023 we will once again be handing out gift bags on Christmas Day to cast members to thank them for making magic for guests. We're taking donations to help us purchase the gifts and treats that will be put in each bag. Every $5 donation will buy 2 gift bags for cast members! Each gift bag will include a card with the last name of the family who donated to Cast Member Christmas, allergy-friendly snacks, a 2023 button, a mini candy cane, and a toy.

Since 2019, over 9,600 gift bags have been given to Cast Members on Christmas Day through Cast Member Christmas. This is all thanks to the generosity of hundreds of families around the world!

We can't wait to hand out these Christmas gift bags to cast members around Walt Disney World in the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs and show our appreciation for all they do each and every day. Cast members bring joy and happiness to us all every day of the year, so for this one day, we want to show them how much they mean to all of us.

Donations for Christmas 2023 Are Now Closed

Thanks to you, we raised enough for 2,750 gift bags this year!

Would you like to make some magic of your own for Cast Members on your next Disney vacation?

You can purchase some of these awesome stickers, and hand them out to Cast Members throughout your trip. It's a small gesture, but it can mean a lot, especially on busier days. We have to warn you though: kindness is addictive and you may just find yourself wishing you had more gifts to give away!


Thank you to everyone who donated in 2022 and helped us raise enough money for over 4,000 gift bags! Without all of you, we could not do this, and we hope you know how much it means to us every time we see another donation come in. It means two more gift bags we're able to hand out to the people who have made Disney trips even more magical year after year.

Cast Member Christmas is a passion project that is near and dear to our hearts, and we love that the Disney community has helped us make this bigger than we ever thought it would be. Thank you for your joining us to bring smiles to the faces of cast members on Christmas Day and reminding us of the joy and love we all share as Disney friends around the world.
