2008 Greta Verity

Greta Verity started at Disneyland in 1964 as a tour guide and VIP hostess in Guest Relations. During that time, she escorted many celebrities through the park, including Julie Andrews, Audrey Hepburn and Lillian Disney and her grandchildren. After almost seven years at Disneyland, Greta transferred to Walt Disney World six months before the opening. Because her then-husband worked in park operations, she wasn’t permitted to work in Guest Relations. Instead, she was offered a position in creative costuming. Her title was Appearance Coordinator, and in that role she was responsible for working with management and Cast Members to establish and maintain the Disney look in the new resort. After five years in that role, Greta took some time off to raise her young son. But as the opening of Epcot approached she was invited back and returned in 1981. She spent another couple of years as the appearance coordinator, and then in 1983 became the buying manager for costumes. The department handled the costumes for all on-stage Cast Members (in attractions, food service and merchandise) as well as for all shows, parades, characters and even the AudioAnimatronic figures in attractions. Before she retired in September 2004, her final role was running the costuming department for the Disney Cruise Line.
