Well said, and as a former CM from the in-berm only/non-facial hair days, I'm in total agreement with it.I think my point is pretty clear actually.
We're here to talk about Disneyland, and one of the most visible changes in recent years is costumes outside the berm. I don't care for it. Disneyland has always been a unique place, and as CMs, we were part of a show. You put your costume on when you got there, and then you went on stage. You weren't even supposed to loiter in an area that wasn't your area (much less out on the streets of Anaheim, Irvine or wherever) or you were considered out of costume. Disneyland is a show. WalMart, McDonalds, and Toys R Us aren't.
Anyway the policy existed for decades and never seemed to create much of a problem. In fact, I personally never heard a fellow CM mention they wished they could take the costumes home because it would be so much easier. You just didn't do it. Likewise, I've heard numerous fellow CMs say they don't dig the new policy either, just like they don't dig the facial hair, and other looser changes that have been allowed in appearance.
So if people don't agree with it, that's cool. But my point is pretty clear. My opinion.
