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.

In addition to new nametags for Cast Members, the Disney100 celebration will bring with it a new nighttime fireworks spectacular called Wondrous Journeys, which will feature nods to every film from Walt Disney Animation Studios, including the upcoming release Wish (2023).

Guests are already seeing new decorations pop up around Disneyland Park for the occasion, but the focal point of the festivities will be Sleeping Beauty Castle that will have a new look to celebrate.
