We just returned from a Christmas visit and learned something new. If a cast member forgets his/her name tag, they have ones they can use and their name is "Chris" or "Christopher" and they're from Orlando, FL. We found three, and they all said the same thing. Maybe others can ask and see if this is true?

Huh. I know my DS would just use someone else's or take one out of the box. I'll have to ask him about the Chris'.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
I know of someone who would use one named "Gomez" because it was in the "box." Later this person said that name tag disappeared. I think it is hysterical. That's what I would go with (I don't look anything like a Gomez)
When we had dinner at the restaurant at the Mexico Pavillion, our waitress came over and saw her name tag which said Lupe or something( I forget the name, so lets just go with Lupe). Being friendly, I said "Hello Lupe!". She responded by saying that Lupe isnt her name and it was actually something else (like Jennifer or something). I was really suprised that she was wearing a nametag with a name other than her own. I never bothered to ask why though...

There are spare nametags at Costuming in case a CM forgets their own. But not all say Chris (or from Orlando).

It is true that many of the extra nametags say Chris from Orlando in case a CM forgets their own....but not all of them do. I know in the department that I used to work we had a few extras that said Chris, but we also had some that former CMs left behind that we were able to choose from. You'll also find some that say Pat from Orlando or other names that can apply to either gender.

Yes, there are spare name tags (or CMs will just wear a friend's) in case you forget yours. Usually all locations have some spares in the back for you to grab from should you forget yours.
