CP Moment: Getting my costume for Sir Mickey’s at the Magic Kingdom.
One of the most exciting CP moments is going to Disney costuming for the first time and being fitted for your work uniform, aka ‘costume’.
You’re allowed to check out up to five complete work costumes at a time, plus accessories like a jacket and hat and gloves, if your costume has one.
When your costume gets dirty or wrinkled, you can just trade it in for a clean one. Costumes can be machine washed and some DCP apartments like The Commons have a washer/dryer unit in the apartment.
Each of the WDW Parks has its own costuming warehouse open 7 days a week, with the one for the Magic Kingdom being the largest.
On our way to Animal Kingdom costuming.

CM Tip: 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 here! 😥
The Commons: There’s a stacked washer/dryer in every apartment, right off the kitchen. No more trips to the laundry room!! 🙂
Our friend worked at the Starbucks Trolley Car Cafe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This was her costume.
