Disney unveils new Walt Disney World 50th anniversary Cast Member name tags

Walt Disney World's Cast Member's will be receiving new name tags for the 50th anniversary Celebration beginning October 1 2021 featuring pearlescent shimmer and holographic gold foil.

A team of graphic artists and costume designers spent more than a year developing the new nametag, testing a number of colors and printing techniques before completing the final design. The new nametags feature several special details:

  • An exclusive color wash, inspired by the sparkling new 50th anniversary looks for Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, was developed and applied with an innovative printing technique and glaze to give each nametag a pearlescent shimmer.

  • Holographic gold foil with sparkling color-shift elements is individually applied to each nametag, bringing additional shine to the Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary logo.

  • Royal blue lettering matching the turrets of Cinderella Castle brings a regal pop of color to the nametag, ensuring each cast member name and hometown is a focal point against the glistening background.

The new EARidescent nametags will debut later this year, in time for the Oct 1 start of “The World’s Most Magical Celebration.”

This one might be a easy fix but if any others fall off they may not be able to reach it as easily. I doubt they will do this but it might be wise Before the Anniversary starts to go in and re attached all of them.

A better grade of adhesive!

Darn! I was hoping it wasn't true since I saw nothing glaring on MK's Streams on Fri. Hopefully it's an easy fix?

Case of "Designed and tested in California, shipped to Florida"? Edit: Regardless, it's a minor issue.

As a rare poster who loves reading on this forum, I'm curious to know...I'll be in Disney with my wife and 3 kids Dec 27-Jan3. With the return of fireworks, we have actually never seen Happily Ever After in person. We always ended up leaving before or whatever...do they have Happily Ever After during the holidays typically? I ask because on New Years and the day before they often have Fantasy In The Sky.

I can imagine it now…. Your little princess 👑 can have her tiara from Bippity Boppity Boutique remain secure in Cat 3 hurricane force winds for the nominal fee of $74.99 plus tax thanks to our new partnership with Gorilla Glue; you can put that stuff on everything!

Gorilla Glue is going to sponsor the Bippity Boppity Boutique.

Perfect time for a Gorilla Glue sponsorship?

Did they fade yet or the new paint job? At least the 50th medallion will be fresh and new.

Of course. But some will still want to be there on the official day and for that limited merchandise lol. Not sure if we should still keep expectations low for October even though things are going back to “normal”? Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t the biggest issue or set back right now with staffing? If so and if they can get cast back to pre covid levels by October, maybe we could see more entertainment? Otherwise they might hold off on things until after October or 2022. Of course that’s not to say they won’t deliberately hold off entertainment for 2022, especially if they want things to help balance out crowds when Tron opens.

If that's all they do I'll be happy. I'm booked for Magic Kingdom that day, I want to see some kind of special dedication ceremony and a special gathering of characters unique to the day. If they do perimeter fireworks that'll just be icing on the day.

I guess that means that Iger really is giving him more control of the company, what with Chapek having less time to post. Besides, with that fancy new house he recently bought he probably has better things to do with his downtime. Alas, I will miss realbobchapek.

Also remember it’s an 18 month celebration. Not a one day deal. There will be merchandise.
