    Cast Member Nametags

    One of my fellow Disney-obssessed friends told me that you can purchase a Cast Member Nametag at City Hall, and that the CMs are supposed to treat you a little better. Can anyone confirm this, and if you can purchase a CM Nametag, what's the price on them?

    I haven't seen them, but I doubt it, I think it would confuse people.
    All the people will look up and shout: "Save us!" and I'll whisper...'no'.

    Who watches the watchmen?

    Cast member nametags have never been (and probably will never be) available to the public; you may be thinking of "Guest of Honor" badges, which looked similar to CM nametags, but came in different colors, and with a character on them. These really didn't mean to treat a Guest better, as all Guests are supposed to receive the same high quality service, but they did enable the CM to address the Guest by name, and at times encouraged interaction.

    You can buy them at The Christmas Shoppe at Downtown Disney, Celebrity 5 & 10 at the Studios, and a few more locations, IIRC. (I think they are still sold...)

    Cast members are only allowed to wear their nametags while working and in costume. If you were to walk through the parks as a Guest, while wearing a CM nametag, you should expect problems.

    I have been looking for this badge and was told they were not selling them anymore. A CM at DTD pin store told me that the were changing the style and were not being sold right now but would be again, who knows.

    Thanks! Do you know if they come in any different colors or with different characers? Also, what are they going for? They can't be that much.

    I just checked and they don't have them there anymore. No I don't think they come in any other colors. I think mine was 3 or 4 bucks.

    The last place I know of that had them was the 5 & 10 on Hollywood Blvd. at MGM, but they too had run out and not gotten any more. The CM there last August told me they had accidentally marked them down to $.99 and sold out fast.

    It would make sense to have a redesigned badge to go with the 50th Anniversary festivities. I'd hate to see them discontinued permanently. My whole family has them and we wear them in the parks. It's a lot of fun to be on a first-name basis with the World!

    I think that they were available in different colors (I think Pooh was green).

    I never heard about different colors. I was @ MGM today and they didn't make @ Celeb 5 and 10 anymore but I was at the Character Showcase at Orlando Premium Outlets this afternoon and they had some premade ones for 99 cents apiece but they couldn't make custom ones.

    By any chance did they have a "Taylor"?
