    I actually think I'd look good in the tie and plaid vest thingy I've seen on Main St USA.

    Re: Which Cast Member costume would you wear?

    I've looked at costumes from time to time thinking, boy am I glad I don't have to wear that everyday.

    It became very apparent when my DS was in the Disney College Program.
    When I was at College housing you would see cast members coming and going from the parks in their uniforms, heading to the bus stops.

    It is the only time I've ever seen such a mixture of uniforms all together, from hotel workers, four different parks, waterparks, monorail pilots. Magic Kingdom workers were the best to look at as the CM's were bolting for the bus.

    I'm going with LIFEGUARD from one of the waterparks! Seriously when it's so hot there I feel terrible for those poor CM's sweating in those heavy costumes.

    When you are at a pool take note of the heavy material the lifeguards polo shirts are made of and the sleeves that come to the crook of their elbows. For girls add a suit under it and a pair of shorts. Toasty.

    Disney will not allow their pool lifeguards to wear traditional lifeguard tanks as they view it as unprofessional. Upside their sweats, jackets and suits are the Underarmour brand. Nice.

    Re: Which Cast Member costume would you wear?

    I really love the costumes that the performers where during the Block Party Bash at Hollywood Studios. I used to be a bit of a raver when I was younger and all the fluffy legwarmers and stuff they were reminds me of my clubbing days. I'm not sure I would have the energy they have though - all that bouncing around and dancing in 30oC+ heat is a bit of a no-no for me! I also really like the costumes that the dancers wear on Main Street (who do the Trolly show in the mornings).

    It depends on the time of year, and location. Characters can be out meeting anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes

    It wouldn't matter to me what CM costume I was wearing so long as I was working in WDW
