Disneyland Resort Guests recently caused a stir when Guests thought they were Disney Princesses.
Disneyland Resort has been the ultimate destination for families, friends, and Disney enthusiasts from all over the world. Disneyland spans over 100 acres and consists of eight uniquely themed lands that offer a vast range of attractions, entertainment, and magical experiences. Disneyland has two theme parks Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Each theme park includes attractions for Guests of all ages and sizes.
Some Guests heading to Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World Resort may participate in a phenomenon that’s come to be known as “Disney bounding,” which is when Guests dress like a certain character or attraction or sometimes even food. They then use the character’s color palette and style to create a look that is inspired by the character but not a direct copy. For example, to Disney Bound as Snow White, a fan might wear a yellow skirt or dress, blue top, and red hair bow, evoking the colors of Snow White’s iconic outfit. To Disney Bound as Elsa from Frozen, a fan might wear a light blue dress with a white coat and silver accessories, reflecting Elsa’s icy color palette.
In a TikTok Guests can see two Disney Guests wearing princess dresses that look like Ariel from The Little Mermaid, and Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

These women are doing a popular Disney trend by Disney bounding when they were approached by several different Disney Guests. In this TikTok, you can see Guests asking for signatures and pictures with these Guests. While these ladies are not breaking any Disney rules from attire to how they react to the comments around them. These Guests did not have dresses to the ground or did not stop to pose for photos which are in Disney’s attire policy.
Disneyland official rules for attire are that inappropriate attire for Disney Parks includes but are not limited to
- Costumes may not be worn by Guests 14 years of age or older
- Masks may not be worn by Guests 14 years of age or older (unless they are for medical purposes)
- Clothing with objectionable material, including obscene language or graphics
- Excessively torn clothing or loose fitting clothing which may drag on the ground and create a potential trip hazard
- Clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment
- Clothing with multiple layers are subject to search upon entry
- Visible tattoos that could be considered inappropriate, such as those containing objectionable language or designs
- Bare feet
Disneyland Resort also has rules about Guests pretending to be Disney characters or Disney princesses. During Oogie Boogie Bash at Halloween, Disney allows all Guests to dress as their favorite character, but they may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
Have you witnessed a Guest pretending to be a Disney character or Disney Princess?
