Starting May 16 2023, Walt Disney World Resort Cast Members will don a fresh addition to their costumes—an all-new nametag!

Cast members embrace the opportunity to be part of something extraordinary, where enchantment and uniqueness converge, and these nametags serve as a tangible symbol that connects Disney and its Guests.

A New Design

Joshua Winchester, the talented costume designer, poured his creative vision into the design of the new Walt Disney World nametag. Drawing inspiration from the wondrous combination of shimmering stars and the whimsical power of pixie dust, the result is a nametag that exudes pure magic.

“The singular, golden star above Cinderella Castle represents our cast who are the guiding light of the Walt Disney World Resort,” said Joshua, “while the field of stars represents that little sprinkling of pixie dust our cast carry while making magic for our guests.”

The dreamy shades of misty blue in the design draw inspiration from the enchanting color palette of the beloved Disney animated classic, “Cinderella.” To add a touch of enchantment, the nametag is also adorned with a glossy finish over the stars, creating a subtle glimmer and sparkle that catches the light.

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
