Ahead of the 50th anniversary celebrations at the Walt Disney World Resort, Cast Members are starting to receive special nametags in honor of the occasion.
The 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World begins on October 1 and will last a total of 18 months. This exciting celebration has a signature color that Disney is calling, EARidescent. The EARidescent color includes gold, royal blue, and royal purple.
The entire Resort will be covered in the EARidescent colors, from Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom, to Mickey Mouse and all of his pals. Disney did not want to leave out its Cast Members, and so each Cast Member is receiving a special name tag that is EARidescent for the 50th anniversary.
Disney took to their official Disney Parks YouTube channel to show Cast Members receiving the first batch of EARidescent nametags. This heartfelt video truly showcases the excitement the Cast Members feel about being a part of the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World, so magical!
Disney gave us more details on the 50th anniversary name tags on the Disney Parks Blog, stating:
With “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” just weeks away, Walt Disney World cast members are honoring the decades-long tradition with new 50th-themed nametags featuring a dazzling EARidescent design. The shimmering gold accents, iridescent overlay and 50th anniversary logo perfectly represent the splendor of the 18-month celebration, and how our cast members are the heart of it all.
From the moment we received our own first nametags as brand-new cast members in Traditions, we’ve known the magic that they hold. When we put them on for the very first time, we officially became part of the legacy of Walt Disney World Resort. Fast forward to today, when hundreds of new cast members are being surprised with their own first nametags in Traditions and instantly feeling the pride that comes with being a cast member, knowing they are now part of the magic that has fueled us for all these years.
Now, every cast member at Walt Disney World Resort will get to feel that rush again, too, as the new nametags honoring our 50th anniversary are distributed throughout September. Our cast members are central to the magic we make, and we can’t wait to share even more of that magic with you as we continue to celebrate this historic milestone.
We are so excited to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort with Cast Members starting on October 1.
