Walt Disney World Will Debut New Cast Member Costumes at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

We announced previously that there would be a special celebration at Walt Disney World to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  The park first opened on April 22nd, 1998 which is also Earth Day.  It looks like not only will there be a special celebration and events at the park for the anniversary, the cast members at the park will also debut their brand new costumes. Historically, cast members in each area of the parks have always worn the exact same thing, but we are hearing that there will be options for cast members to choose from to reflect their own preferences.  We expect that they will still be similar and will use the same patterns and styles, but with a little different combination from cast member to cast member.

Here are the locations at Disney’s Animal Kingdom that are expected to debut new costumes on April 22nd, 2018:

  • Adventurer’s Outpost
  • Creature Comforts
  • Discovery Trading Company
  • Eight Spoon Café
  • Flame Tree Barbecue
  • Garden Gate Gifts
  • Gorilla Falls Trails
  • Island Mercantile
  • Isle of Java
  • It’s Tough to Be a Bug
  • Maharajah Jungle Trek Trails
  • Main Entrance
  • Outdoor Vending
  • Park Greeters
  • Pizzafari
  • Rafiki’s Planet Watch
  • Riverside Depot
  • The Smiling Crocodile
  • Strollers
  • Terra Treats
  • Vacation Planning
  • Wildlife Express Greeters

Who else can’t wait to see what the new costumes look like and the different cast member variations?

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
