Disney Pic of the Week: Cast Costumes Magic Kingdom

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Not sure if I am supposed to use entertainment Cast Members but I am. Main Street USA is my second favorite place to find, interact and photograph Streetmosphere cast members. You have characters like the Mayor, Town Councilors and, if you are lucky, you can meet a Suffragette (think Mrs. Banks from Mary Poppins).

Each one of them are in costumes fitting the time period of Main Street USA. Including this Town Councilor who was looking to get my vote for his upcoming election.

Deb will be here tomorrow no doubt showing you a real Cast Member at the Magic Kingdom.

  1. Hi Scott –

    Despite being a WDW Nut for more years than I care to say, I hate to admit, but I never knew there were “Streetmosphere” characters on Main St. I’ll be sure to look for them during our August visit.

    PS: Not to be persnickety, I think the “Streetmosphere” performers are “real” cast members – they’re interacting in full character, just like an actor, i.e.: Cast Member.

    Scott replies: I know they are “Cast member” but I believe Deb really wanted non-entertainment CMs in this series. I will get more on my next trip to share.

  2. We met the Mayor and “Mrs. Mayor” and a councilor once and when we said we were from Canada, he sang a few bars of O Canada to us and we had a fun chat. It was a real treat. Another time a friend of ours got pulled into the group of Suffragettes and made to sing “Sister Suffragette” with them. She was thrilled. These performers really add so much!

    Scott replies: Thank you for sharing yours and your friends experiences with the Main Street USA characters. I encourage people to interact with them as add the magic and color to the Magic Kingdom.
