Theme park reporter Scott Gustin shared a first look at the new nametags that Cast Members at the Disneyland Resort will be sporting throughout the event, noting that for the first time ever, Cast at Parks and Resorts will wear nametags sharing their favorite Disney character rather than their hometowns.
Disneyland also shared that the most popular character choice from Cast Members while their nametags were in the works was Stitch.
