Disney Work Costumes

Costume Fittings

One of the most exciting CP moments is going to Disney costuming for the first time and being fitted for your work costume. You’re allowed to check out up to five complete work costumes at a time, plus accessories like a jacket and hat, if your costume has one.

When your costume gets dirty or wrinkled, you can just trade it in for a clean one. Costumes can also be machine washed and, now that we have a washer/dryer unit in our apartment, we don’t go to costuming as often.

Each of the Parks has its own costuming warehouse, with the one for the Magic Kingdom being the largest.

Disney sizing chart follows European sizing, so if you are normally a size 14 womens, for Disney costumes, you’ll be a size 18 or 20!  😥

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
