I always geek out over Cast Member costumes because they’re just as intricately designed as the lands and resorts themselves. If you’ve been following the progress of the upcoming Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, or are planning a stay there in the near future, you might be curious to see the costumes Cast Members at this new resort and at the newly imagined Coronado Springs will be donning. Well, Disney has just revealed a first look at the new Cast Member costumes for the resort. Check out what they had to say about the inspiration behind these new outfits!
The brilliantly-colored costumes draw from the resort’s classic Spanish influences.
For the collection, Costume Designer Josh Winchester worked closely with Executive Architect David Stofcik and the Walt Disney Imagineering team to bring the story and setting of Gran Destino Tower to life in each garment. Josh looked to the works of Spanish artists for an earthy color palette, bold patterns, and beautiful textures.
The same bell shapes mirrored in the architecture are seen in this shirt pattern.
Breezy embroidered shirts like these will transport you straight to the Yucatan peninsula, where Caribbean-style guayaberas are a staple of traditional clothing. There are also customizable costume options, including a “mix and match” collection of pieces for specific resort areas.
What do you think of the new look?
