Hello everybody. I just became a CM as of last week and I had the "Traditions" class yesterday. For those who don't know what that is, it is a required class for all CMs before they begin training/working. As the name implies, it is a one-day class of the history of Disney and what is expected of you. One of the major areas that is emphasized is the "Disney Look". As part of the information you are given is a "Disney Look" book. It tells you what you can and can't wear, how to style your hair, how to wear makeup, etc. I just retired from the Air Force, and it reminds me alot of the military. As a matter of fact, some of the items seem more strict! Most CMs in costume are allowed to wear athletic shoes (leather, one color, usually black), but as far as socks, they should cover your ankles. I find it surprising that the team leaders aren't enforcing the policy better.
