Cast Members are allowed to have 5 complete costumes out at a time.
This does not include weather gear.
Although the rainy season is still a few months away, it rains every week in Orlando. Not the summer thunderstorm downpours with thunder and lightning where Disney World can see 4” – 5” of rain in a single afternoon, but more along the lines of 0.5” – 1” rain events. Certainly enough to get you wet while waiting for the bus or walking to your car!
You can ask at the costuming desk if there are any rain ponchos or rain gear outfits (pants and a jacket) in your size available. Having these pieces doesn’t count towards your 5 costume limit.
The weather in Florida in the winter is very variable. It can be warm and sunny during the day with temperatures in the mid-70s, then a cold front will come through and the lows at night can be in the low 40s/high 30s – very cold!
The damp cold in Florida feels much colder than similar temperatures up north!
Many costumes have matching jackets available. Look at the end of your costume aisle. If you don’t see one for your costume, ask at the desk what is available for your work location.
Costuming also sometimes has black gloves and hats available seasonally. These pieces can be worn with all costumes.

We’ve written a book about our year working at Disney World in the Disney College Program: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale. It’s filled with advice about the DCP program and how to get the most out of your internship.
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and wrote about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We give advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship at Disney, 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.
