    Thanks for that, now I have "Up, Up and Away in my beautiful ballon" stuck in my head.

    I can't decide if this is 70's suit OR rejected flight attendant. But the length is probably better in the heat.


    Oh well, the bottom, line is we will all go back, and enjoy.

    Exactly.

    What the CM's are wearing is nothing to be getting into a frenzy over.

    umm... well I dont remember ever wearing knickers... and I am sure that German's do not wear anything resembling the costumes they wear in the pavilion... traditional clothing based on the specific country...

    Re: OMG! What have they done now!

    But Joe, the costumes are more stereotypical than period-based. Would you not agree?

    I still don't see the pavilions as locked into any certain time periods.

    I don't know if it's a matter of time periods so much as it is what the rest of the world might consider to be 'traditional' outfits. To Joe's point, if that weren't the case, then why not just have people wear everyday attire to work, since that's what they wear daily in any other nation. Lederhosen is broken out during festivals, not to go to their job or the mall. As for what they've done to the American Adventure, I have no idea. Does it warrant an "OMG" in the subject line, though? Absolutely not.

    AA was imagineered to cover a 100 year time span. The show inside basically does flashbacks of events in history.
    The cast members were costumed in clothing that reflected that span of time.

    Disney announced earlier this year that WDW guests wanted the Cast Members uniforms changed so Disney is responding to the guests wishes and putting their CMs in the World Showcase in modern clothing.

    As to your specific girl question, I don't find it a color problem. I just don't find it to reflect modern clothing, if that is what management was aiming for. The suits the women are in now go back to the style of the 60's, especially with that style of jacket and accent piping/trim.
    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.

    Interesting yard stick you are using.

    Maybe OMG is determined by you to be Absolutely unwarrented, OK everyone has a right to their opinion. But is your opinion the absolute? Who knew OMG would be the new topic of this thread, not me. We could move on to the nail cringing over use of the word absolutely next if you would like since it hit the banished list several years ago?

    I certainly respect members who do not care one way or the other about the CMs costume changes. So be it.
    I guess what I don't understand is if you have such an issue with OMG, look up at some of the dramatic and over the top posts of the last few days, OMG can't compete with lock up your daughters, Amageddon?

    OMG isn't the problem here, it seems a few of you gentlemen need to consider testosterone replacement therapy. Seriously, how many other males members do you see post the drama you gentlemen concoct, middle school girls maybe. Men not so much.

    I see what i mean now. Oh and i had the specific girl question just because i don't really care what i have on or what other people have on as much.

    And I guess that also goes to Joe's point. Of all the pavillions, the American Adventure is the one that makes a point to be a period-themed area.

    Actually, we were making fun of your ridiculously over-the-top thread title.

    You have always been the supreme ruler of dramatics here, so you may want to look in the mirror.

    I agree some of the comments are overly dramatic and completely silly. It is an expression, and it fits with this huge of a giant swing from Disney tradition-a very giant swing from tradition.

    I don't like it, but I understand both sides of it. THis big of a flying leap in the opposite direction of the known history and traditions borders on disregard for the founder and the ideology behind the original outfits.

    But the nasty comments are over the top as well.
