Nametags have a long tradition at Disney Parks, dating back to the opening of Disneyland park in 1955. With the launch of the Disney100 Celebration on Jan. 27, Disneyland Resort cast members are excited to be sporting new Disney100 nametags, which, for the first time, feature the name of a favorite character instead of their hometown.
Some cast members chose lesser-known characters, but Erick Carmona, who works in Food and Beverage, chose Mickey Mouse. “He’s the original, and I have a lot of memories with him and my mom… I even had a Mickey Mouse lunch pail when I was a kid in elementary and so I just have a lot of memories with Mickey.”
Wonder which character was the top pick for cast? Look no further than the mischievous little blue genetic experiment from a faraway planet – Stitch!
Disneyland Resort cast will be wearing the new nametags throughout the yearlong celebration!
