PHOTOS: New Cast Costume Debuts at DINOSAUR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Cast members of the Dino Institute at Disney’s Animal Kingdom are sporting a new look you’ll be seeing before you’re transported to the age of the dinosaurs.

The new costume is part of ongoing cast costume updates throughout the park to commemorate the 20th anniversary year.

This costume is pretty sweet, and I certainly would wear it if they had one additional shirt extra-large.

Our favorite detail is the code from the loading area that appears on the sleeve. CTX of course references the attraction’s original name: Countdown to Extinction. WDI is Walt Disney Imagineering and AK98 references when the park opened in 1998.

Hmmmm… Not sure that the CM costumes were the problem with that ride…

This shirt looks like my blind grandma made it.

That’s an insult to your blind grandma. Personally, I think it looks like one of Madonna’s backup dancers should be wearing it.

Are you sure you didn’t accidentally post a picture of a high school marching band member instead of a Dino CM?
