Former cast member threatened by security after questioning Disney World dress code


We’ve covered the Disney dress code extensively. A growing trend started last year with TikToker Amanda DiMeo encouraging guests to “get a free Disney shirt” by violating the Walt Disney World Resort dress code.

Regardless of this TikTok trend, many guests have spoken out against the inconsistency of Disney’s dress code. But after being pulled over at security, a former Disney cast member decided to question the decision in person. @ocinnedi posted on ICT Tac:

“When you get a dress code at Disney but then threaten to be escorted out by security for asking questions,” she captioned the video. In a comment, she further explained what happened:

The rules are very vague. I was wearing the same shirt I wore in the same park three days earlier, then I explained that, and then I also explained what the difference was between what I was wearing and the other girls that had just passed through. It was either HR or the boss or security that said “If I ask any more questions or say anything else, I’ll be escorted out of Hollywood studios”… Honestly… kinda like a police interaction. I was like it was messed up. I also didn’t like to see that the only people interviewed were mixed…

The former cast member also job a follow-up video:

“The dress code is very, very, very inconsistent and something that 90% of us don’t even know how to handle,” she explained. “All I asked was, ‘Why am I arrested?’ when I wore the exact same outfit that I wore three days before at the same park.

“My dad asked the same question, saying very politely, ‘Is there a problem here? What’s the problem?’ the guest said. “We couldn’t even finish half of our pain before being threatened with being taken away. I started crying at that point.

Walt Disney World Resort keeps its definition of “inappropriate” vague, so it’s up to Cast Members at the park entrance to decide whether clothing meets dress code requirements. Of disney:

  • Proper attire, including shoes and shirts, must be worn at all times. Clothing that drags on the floor is prohibited in theme parks and water parks. Multi-layered garments are searchable. We reserve the right to refuse admission or remove anyone wearing attire that we consider inappropriate or attire that may adversely affect the experience of other guests. Visible tattoos that could be considered inappropriate, such as those containing objectionable language or designs, are not permitted. There are specific costume guidelines for special events such as Halloween parties, runDisney events, and while at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser; please see additional policies applicable to these events.

  • Costumes may not be worn at our theme parks, water parks, or ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex by Guests age 14 or older.

  • Masks cannot be worn by guests aged 14 or over (unless required for medical purposes). When worn by younger visitors, masks may not cover the entire face and should provide unobstructed peripheral vision at all times with openings to allow full viewing of the eyes.

It is important to wear comfortable clothing when traveling to Walt Disney World. If you’re unsure if something is appropriate, it’s best to err on the side of caution and choose another option that’s more dress code compliant.

Please note that the story described in this article is based on the personal experience of visitors to Disney Parks. No two guest experiences are the same, and this article does not necessarily reflect Inside the Magic’s personal views on Disney park operations.
