Cast Member Exclusive 50th Anniversary Medallion

It is no secret that I appreciate all that the amazing Disney Cast Members do for us guests during our visits to the parks, resorts and every place in-between. There are more than a few Cast Members that I have run into numerous times during my trips that I would consider friends now and my family seek them out each time we are there. Disney has put in place a few different ways that guests can recognize an outstanding Cast Member with a Cast Compliment and I would highly recommend you do so as it really does go a long away. It’s easy for people to make a fuss then there is a problem, but not many go out of their way when they have a fantastic experience. What is also nice to see if that Disney as a company puts on special events just for their Cast Members as a special thank you. I’m sure there are many other things they can do better, but this is a nice gesture by putting on what they call EARidescent Evenings.

I have a neighbor that works for Walt Disney World and was nice enough to share with us some of the things that went on. There are free snacks, short lines for attractions, and plenty of characters to meet and take pictures with. But a big part of these events is just celebrating each other, and they all seem to be having the time of their lives.

At this most recent EARidescent Evenings which took place in the Magic Kingdom as Cast Members were leaving they were gifted a special 50th Anniversary Medallion.

The coin is sealed in a plastic capsule and attached to a card stating “WE are the MAGIC”. The front of the medallion has Mickey and Minnie in front of Cinderella Castle with fireworks in the sky. The reverse side of this coin is the same as all the others we have reviewed above with Mickey stating “The World’s Most Magical Celebration”.

The back of the card just has the Cast Member EARidescent Evenings logo with a few hash tags to be used when posting all their wonderful photos on social media.

There are a few more of these special Cast Member events through the summer (2022) but it is unknown whether these coins will continue to be gifted out. There are some currently available on eBay but due to their rarity the costs are pretty high so just be aware of that. Hopefully you may know a Cast Member that has an extra they don’t want so you can add this special medallion to your collection.

Now I just need to try and convince my neighbor to let me keep this beautiful coin. He certainly has earned it so it’s probably better off in his possession. Thanks for visiting and as always Keep on Collecting!
