A Disneyland visitor’s embarrassing wardrobe malfunction has sparked a debate over the Florida park’s “dress code” policy.
A woman claims she was turned away at the Walt Disney World Orlando turnstile because of what she was wearing.
On May 9, Nicole DeLosReyes was heading to the theme park on a family trip for Mother’s Day, Fox News reported, the content creator claims she was arrested for violating the park’s dress code.
“Guys, it happened. I had a dress code at Disney, and I was told to leave or take a shirt,” she told her TikTok channel, immediately after the incident. . “Now we’re going to get a shirt.”
Posting her outfit on social media, DeLosReyes shared the white top with a bow to her 74,000 followers.
While many sided with DeLosReyes, saying the park was overstepping the bounds, some accused her of trying to get herself arrested on purpose.
The term “dress-coding” was popularized recently by TikTokers. In a social media trend, some visitors have tried to get free clothes by showing up in outfits that deliberately display park rules.
Last year, social media star Amanda DiMeo shared a controversial travel tip that she says earned her a free voucher to spend on clothes.
“I just got a $75 t-shirt just because I was wearing a shirt that exposed my underbust a little bit,” she continued. “So yes, if you want free Disney shirts, this is the hack.”
DeLosReyes said she was not trying to get a free shirt and no compensation was offered for getting new clothes.
“I didn’t do it on purpose. I don’t care about a free fucking shirt, I just ruined a nice fit,” she replied in the comments.
She says she ended up going back to her hotel to change clothes and missed the morning at the park.
