    Last I knew, they don't sell cast member name tags, and for good reason. LOTS of parents come to the parks, pull over the first CM they see, and tell the kids "If you get lost, find someone wearing one of these tags". Given that, I wouldn't want random guests being able to wear CM name tags.

    In many different shops, you can buy name tags, and they'll even personalize them for you. But not the Cast Member name tags.

    I can see how that would be a problem. I remember my parents telling me that same thing. If I was to get lost those were the first people I were to find. Luckily I never got lost and now it seems like I could walk around Disney World with my eyes closed and know exactly where I was.

    Did something change? Last I knew, you could buy tags that looked just like CM name tags (same shape, and with Mickey or something) out front at MGM. Anyone know what I'm talking about and if that's changed? We'll be at MGM sometime w/in the next week, so I'll have to check it out for myself, if no one replies before then.

    And you know what? I was just telling our kids this week that if they ever got lost, to do this very same thing. But I could have sworn that you can buy CM-look alike tags at MGM... Anyway, I told my kids to go into the closest ride/attraction/or store and find someone in a uniform or behind a counter, WITH a tag on, and tell them. We are at WDW several times a week, so I do feel confident that my kids know CM uniforms, and I know that they know their way around the parks pretty well... but still- now that I'm thinking about this, and that I'm almost positive you can buy tags right up front at MGM, I'm kinda...

    I don't know if they are still there, but, CM tags are mostly white and tags they sell / sold were in different colors.

    Ahhh....

    I asked dh about it after replying to this thread (he used to be a CM), and he said he never heard of such a thing. So maybe I was wrong.

    For a while Disney sold "Guest of Honor" badges, which were red with Mickey on them and had your name engraved in white letters on them. There were also some other colored ones with characters, but for a time I think they only had the Mickey ones. They disappeared for a year or so, and then they came back with all new designs and characters, including gold ones for Disneyland's 50th, Princesses, and others. Those were packaged with the option to make them into a badge, a keychain, or a magnet. They could be found at the Celebrity 5 and 10 in the Studios - there is an engraving/embroidering area at one end of the shop, they had been on display racks in that area.

    LaughingPlace.com's shop, which sells merchandise that is purchased for you at WDW and DL, has a 2007 badge for WDW, but their only other ones are from Disneyland. You can see them here: http://www.laughingplacestore.com/Category-RC-431.asp

    OK thanks Pat- I knew I wasn't crazy!! (well, not totally....) LOL Yes they do do engraved things, including ears, at 5 & 10 (or as I always call it the "five and dime store" in my head, for some reason.... and Im only 26, so no jokes about 'dating myself' lol) We got our ears (we got the light-up YoaMD ears) at MK. The CM's at 5 & 10 said that the ones we had done (the $2) monogramming are the way they used to do them for Mickey Mouse Club... but that some people just like the engraving (for $6 ) I like ours the way they are
