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.

  1. I love Disney. My father helped prep the land for it to be built. Went to the preview center in 1971. My issue? Disney does not have any openings to be there October 1st. It seems that the only ones who will be in magic Kingdom are bloggers, vloggers important people and the press. So disappointed in disney.
