Taking a page from the former Disney Store, Disneyland Resort is celebrating the Disney100 celebration with commemorative Cast Member name tags which allow them to share their favorite character in place of their hometown. And now we have a look into the most popular characters chosen for these special tags!
Per the Orange County Register citing Disneyland Resort officials, the most popular character of all was Stitch, one of the titular characters from the 2002 film “Lilo and Stitch.” The escaped Experiment 626-turned house pet for the chaotic home of Lilo and Nani landed as the top dog in the name tag contest. The full list is as follows:
- Tinker Bell
- Mickey Mouse
- Darth Vader
- Donald Duck
- Scarlet Witch
Cast Members who did not choose a character were given Mickey Mouse by default. Of these characters, two are from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one from Star Wars, and the rest from Disney properties. WALL·E is a particularly surprising choice considering the movie’s popularity compared to other Pixar properties like “Toy Story” and “Monsters, Inc.” He’s the only one on the top 10 list to be from a Pixar film.
Hundreds of characters were reportedly available for Cast Members to choose from, ranging from deeper cuts like Mr. Prickly Pants from “Toy Story 3” and Ian Lightfoot from “Onward” to The Mandalorian, from the Disney+ series of the same name. Cast Members did report some names being unavailable, including some of the Seven Dwarfs, as well as characters from The Muppets and “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
The color scheme for the Disney100 name tags is platinum silver, white, and gray. The anniversary logo appears at the top in front of an outline of the top of Sleeping Beauty Castle. A trail of silver stars runs from the top down to the right side of the tag. The bottom reads, “Where Wonder Comes to Life.” The names of both the Cast Member and the character are in dark purple.
Cast Members will continue to wear these tags throughout 2023, although those working in Batuu at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge did not receive the opportunity to get a commemorative nametag, keeping in theme with the land’s intricate backstory. No word as of yet whether these commemorative Cast Member name tags will come to Walt Disney World after the 50th Anniversary celebration wraps on March 31.

Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway (and the rest of Mickey’s Toontown when it reopens) will close during fireworks at Disneyland. A new sign near the entrance to the land lets guests know when it will be closed.
On evenings when the park is open until 11:00 p.m. or later, Mickey’s Toontown will reopen at 10:00 p.m. On these days, the sign says the land will close at 8:00 p.m. and reopen at 10:00 p.m.
On days when the park closes earlier, the sign just says Mickey’s Toontown closes at 8:00 p.m.
The opposite side of the sign reads “See ya real soon!” It’s covered in the autographs of Mickey and his friends.

The post This Is NOT a Drill: McDonalds 🍟 Loungefly Bags Are Coming SOON! first appeared on the disney food blog.
Two new Loungefly bags inspired by the “Despicable Me” and “Minion” franchise have arrived at Universal Studios Hollywood. These are the first Loungefly bags to be specifically branded with “Universal Studios” instead of the franchise name.
Unicorn Cupcake Loungefly Backpack – $90
The backpack is inspired by the white unicorn plush that Agnes declares is “so fluffy, I’m gonna die!” in the first “Despicable Me” movie. It sits in a pink-striped cupcake liner. The plaque on the front has logos for Universal Studios and Loungefly.
There are three pockets: one in the cupcake liner, one on the unicorn’s nose, and one on its head.
The back is pink with an image of the unicorn on a cupcake.
Balloons are attached to the unicorn and they read “Yours Forever.”
The interior lining is white with an all-over pattern of unicorn snacks like cupcakes, ice cream, and cake.
Minion Cupcake Loungefly Purse – $82
This purse is shaped like a Minion cupcake, with a dark pink liner and blue fabric around the zipper.
A yellow Universal Studios x Loungefly plaque is on the back.
It unzips around the middle and there are rings on the sides for an included detachable strap.
The interior lining is the same as the backpack.
The detachable strap is a lighter pink.
