    Red Face Dress Code becoming Less Strict for CM's: Good or Bad?

    The dress code at Disneyland is noticably getting weaker! For Both CM's and Guests, but this thread is mostly about CM's!

    Now, being modern times this might be good because it is non-discriminatory. But, will this add to Disneyland's faults? Already I noticed Tatoos on a Aladdin performer along with some other dress code follies. No offense to people who have tatoos or anything but remember when all the cast members had to be a clean and spotless?

    It's unclear whether you're just discussing CMs, or guests.

    Either way, I don't really care. I think the CMs do an amazing job, for very little pay. As for other guests, I'm not at DLR to look at other guests.

    Being a family Park, I believe that certain standards should be met. I'm no prude, but at the same time, I don't want to be served my Blue Bayou meal by some guy with a green and purple mohawk and a tank-top which reveals his pierced nipple and chest hair. (no offense to anyone with those features, just an example)

    I'll never forget our experience with a female CM in DCA during the AP sneak preview weekend. We were buying something in one of the shops and the register CM was wearing a top that was a few sizes too small (and she WASN'T...), had her belly button pierced (plainly visible) and had streaks of pink hair amongst the rest of her black hair. Again, nothing wrong with that, but in a family theme Park, we were surprised. We also saw plenty of guys with longer side-burns and moustaches. I finally had to ask, and I was told that the DCA CM's didn't have to adhere to the same rules as the DL ones.

    That was a surprise...

    The CM's could at least tuck their shirts in!

    It would only seem better if they had matching uniforms that fit with the theme. It would take away most of the Disney charm.

    Is chest hair offensive?

    If it is showing it would be to some. Maybe repulsive to most.

    Re: Dress Code becoming Less Strict for CM's: Good or Bad?

    Dress codes should be enforced strictly with Disneyland and DCA Cast Members. Costumes aren't just to get employees in awkward, uncomfortable, or embarassing outfits for the hell of it - Cast Member costuming is important to creating and maintaining the illusion of any land, store, attraction, show, or restaurant the costume may be present in.

    Contuming is just as important as themed facades for attractions, land-specific foliage/plantlife, and paint.

    Its one thing to let Guests in with exposed obscene tattoos, inappropriate words and phrases on t-shirts, or too much skin showing... but to allow Cast Members to become too lax in their dress codes demeans and lessens the overall experience of the Magic Kingdom.

    What I believe is wrong is how CM's from different lands help with the parade. In the old days, Walt hated to see the illusion of a land ruined by people in different "not pertaining to theme" costumes.

    I think the same. At least change their uniform if they were to help with the parades.

    There was a time when the park didn't let male guests in when their hair was too long, much less the t-shirt and jacket thing.
    Obviously we're long past the point of enforcing the grooming standards but I certainly wish they'd enforce the clothing rules the way they used to. Show off your foul-mouthed tattoos and t-shirts somewhere else - don't force them on me at Disneyland.

    And I agree entirely on cast member dress codes with what Master Gracey stated above.

    CMs should appear neat and tidy. And yes, that means wearing the proper size pants, at their actual waistline, with the shirt properly tucked in. Standards have been slipping for a long time now.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    To be fair, sometimes that is part of the 'show'. Such as for many of the costumes on Paradise Pier, such as Store Operations, the 'Disney Look' is to have the shirt untucked. Having a tucked in shirt would be breaking show, and when I worked over there back in the day, it was enforced. Just clearing up some possible future misunderstandings. I'm sure Wolfy999 knew this, but yeah, for the most part wearing a belt and tucking your shirt in is not asking too much.
