Those are homely costumes - they do not look like costumes at all - just ugly, ,unflattering uniforms. Nice work, Disney. Sheesh.

And how do these represent America, besides being red/white/blue?

They look like the Pan Am flight attendants, just add the little hat. I don't like them at all, doesnt' fit the peior of the pavilion at all. Seems like that jacket would be hot.

New costumes are not very "American" if you ask me - I don't get it at all - apparently we all work at airports. Colonial dress was part of american history and a great teaching tool. Sorry, Disney, big thumbs down on this change!

Kind of one step away from "Sailor Moon" aren't they?

These costumes are beyond "terrible" - they're a disgrace to the American Pavilion! I really wonder who makes some of these "hair brained" decisions at Disney anyway The other patriot costumes were so perfect - why would they want to try to fix something that was not broken? Sheesh

It will definitely change the solemn atmosphere for me and just cheapen the American story.

Just because things are "modern" now does not mean it was that way years ago when our country was being formed. I am so upset with this

I agree, I don't like these either. I loved the colonial period costumes, they were AMERICAN and fitting for the experience.
