Voucher code

TikToker aims to resurface Disney dress code trend

Last year, a controversial TikTok trend went viral regarding the dress code at Walt Disney World Resort. It all started with a video from TikTok user Amanda DiMeo, who uploaded a video to her 800,000+ followers explaining how to get “a free Disney shirt of your choice.”

In the video, which was picked up by FoxNews, DiMeo wore a cropped shirt that did not conform to the Walt Disney World dress code and received a voucher from cast members for a free shirt at a Disney merchandise store. She says:

“Okay guys, new Disney hack. If you’re wearing a shirt that shows a little underboob, they’ll write you a ticket when you first enter Magic Kingdom – I’m not sure about other parks – but they will write you a ticket so you can get a free shirt at the nearest gift shop.”

In another incident late last year, TikTok user @jordyngraime wore an open back to Walt Disney World. She showed a receipt for a shirt that Disney Park allegedly gave her for free.

User @emilywillbeyourfriend commented on Graime’s video saying:

As a former cast member: Anything that can be untied will require you to adopt a dress code. Do with this information as you go…

Now a TikTok user is aiming to revitalize the trend.

@user6353099 shared a video of herself posing in Minnie Mouse ears, crop top and joggers, with text that reads: “Hoping I get a dress code at Disney so I get a free shirt:”

A comment from MrBlank says “You have to pay for the shirts now”, which seems to be correct, although Disney hasn’t confirmed a policy change.

In a TikTok video from May, Nicole DeLosReyes (@nicole.delosreyes) was shown walking away from the entrance to EPCOT wearing a white sleeveless tie-front top. She says, “Guys, it happened. I had a dress code at Disney, and was told to leave or get a shirt, so now we get a shirt.

In the comments, DeLosReyes clarifies that she wasn’t looking for a gift and wasn’t even offered one. She wrote: “On entry I was stopped and told they don’t allow tops to tie in the front…wack. so I had to leave and change or buy products. DeLosReyes later confirmed that she went back to her hotel, got changed and had a great time at EPCOT.

Another TikTok from late May confirms the change. @erinbill678 wore a tie-neck top at Walt Disney World and was told she needed to change, but she didn’t offer any gifts.

The cast member allegedly told Erin that any high that can come off is not allowed. Erin expressed confusion since the links are not explicitly mentioned in the Walt Disney World dress codewhich reads as follows:

Proper attire, including shoes and shirts, must be worn at all times. The parks are a relaxed, family-friendly environment. Ensuring the parks are family-friendly is an important part of the Disney experience. In this spirit, we ask that you exercise discretion and common sense.

Inappropriate dress

Disney reserves the right to refuse admission or remove anyone wearing attire deemed inappropriate or attire that may interfere with the experience of other Guests. Attire that is not appropriate for parks – and which may result in denial of admission – includes, but is not limited to:

  • Costumes and costume masks, which cannot be worn by visitors 14 years of age or older.

Exceptions:

  1. Specific Halloween and Christmas events. See below.
  2. Some outfits inspired by Star Wars.
  • Clothing with objectionable material, including obscene language or graphics

  • Too torn clothes

  • Clothing which by its nature exposes excessive parts of the skin which may be considered inappropriate for a home environment

  • Clothing that touches or drags the floor

  • Multi-layered garments are searched upon entry

  • Objectionable Tattoos

Walt Disney World 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.

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.
