New World Celebration Cast Member costumes
Posted: Monday October 2, 2023 12:00pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Cast Members in World Celebration at EPCOT have new costumes drawing inspiration from the triangles of Spaceship Earth.

The new costumes combine shades of gray with the triangle design running along one side and onto the arm. The EPCOT logo takes a prominent position at the top of one sleeve.

The new costume comes in a couple of color variations, aqua, green, and lavender, which can all be worn at the same location.

Cast Members are currently wearing the new costumes at EPCOT's main entrance, Spaceship Earth, Creations Shop, Connections Cafe, and outdoor vending kiosks.

Changes have yet to be made to costumes at The Land or Imagination! pavilions. The Seas with Nemo & Friends recently got an update to include a dual-use costume with Journey of Water Inspired by Moana.

I was also gonna comment on this. When I was on my CP, my home costume was a Large Shirt & a 36 Pant, when I typically wear a M/L Shirt & 33/34 Pant. There were times I picked up at other locations and had to up to an XL shirt and a 38/40 pants. Disney sizing is very strange

When costumes debut sometimes it takes people a while to find the right fit in “Disney” sizes

It is required, but not enforced.

Ah, I see that now. Thanks for pointing it out! I definitely don’t think it looks correct with this kind of shirt, though I wish that they were generally tailored to be a bit shorter when untucked. At this length, they look better when essentially “belted” by the aprons in Connections.

There is a cm in the photos wearing it tucked in, it looks good. It should be required. I’m not blaming the cm’s.

They’re pretty athleisure-inspired and wouldn’t really look good as designed if tucked in, especially considering they zip all the way down and look more like a jacket. As far as size goes, good luck getting people to actually dress for their size anymore. The few people in the photos in Connections who look like they actually picked the right fit look really good, I think.

They are fine but a bit overly casual. Wearing them oversized and untucked looks pretty sloppy. I prefer the previous button down shirts - a bit more dressy with the fancy buttons and the really cool spaceship earth blueprint earth design.

Going to be kinda sad seeing the Innoventions costumes finally get retired after their weird second life as costumes for Creations. It needed to be done of course, just bittersweet to see that last remaining remnant wiped away.

I'd imagine only if it's raining or something like that. They wouldn't have put the hood there if it served no purpose.

I like them, but don't like the hoodie piece. It makes their costumes look kind of sloppy and not professional. Does anyone know if they're allowed to put their hoods up and wear it like that or if the hood is just part of the costume for appearance?

I was there this morning. They actually look good in person.

Nice! I like them.
