New Look for Cast Members
At the end of 2020, Walt Disney World President, Jeff Vahle, shared that as they prepare for Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th Anniversary “Cast Members– the ones who make the Disney magic come alive for millions of guests every year- will be at the heart of the Park’s momentum around the milestone.” Read more from this interview HERE.
One great way to recognize Cast Members during this celebration is with new EAR-idescent name badges.
Vahle shares, “As we prepare to celebrate our 50th anniversary this October, I am thrilled to preview new name tags in development, designed to bring some additional shimmer to our Cast members providing countless memories for Guests.”
These new EARidescent name tags will be distributed to Cast Members later this fall, but today we get a sneak peek of this new design.
The transformation of these new name tags took more than a little pixie dust. Brett Owens, graphic designer with Disney Live Entertainment, and a team of fellow designers worked diligently to create this unique design.
