Disney Cast Member Costumes at Disney World

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.

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!  😥

Washer and dryer right off the kitchen.  No more trips to the common laundry room!!

The Commons:  There’s a stacked washer/dryer in every apartment, right off the kitchen. No more trips to the laundry room!!  🙂

    My name is Bruce Liggett a former cast member. Per. No. XXXXXXX at Walt Disney World Fl. I had a rain suit stolen from me and reported it to security. I was not able to return the item when I retired on 03/17/2018. How can I clear this from my record?


    • Hello,

      Congratulations on your retirement!
      Yes, it’s very important that you clear your costume record.
      Right now, you are on Restricted Rehire status instead of Good Standing with the company.

      You can email or call Disney Costuming and see if they will forgive your stolen costume or if they want you to pay for it (generally $25). Either way, it takes about 3 days to update your HR status.

      For costume questions, email costume recovery at: wdw.costume.recovery@email.disney.com
