Should guests be allowed to wear whatever they want to Disney Parks? Official guidelines stress a “casual, family-oriented environment” and ask guests to use “discretion and common sense.”

Here are some pillars of the Disney dress code that you may be surprised people have refused to follow:

1) No Ultra-Revealing Clothing

This includes bikini tops (or bottoms, for that matter) for all regular parks and super tiny ones for the water parks. Anything that could easily slip and flash a private body part is considered unsuitable.

A TikToker in 2022 debunked the claim that Disney will provide a voucher for clothing if a guest’s outfit is flagged as inappropriate. Helini (@heliniofficial) tried to enter Walt Disney World’s EPCOT in shorts and a skimpy bikini top but was stopped at the gate.

She was told she needed to buy a shirt or come back after she changed. Luckily she brought a tank top with her to put on and then was allowed in.

This also includes going pantless, like wearing bikini bottoms without pants (except at the water parks).

A guest once tried to break dance on the concrete at Disney Springs, in a t-shirt and only bikini bottoms. Disney and surrounding guests with children were not pleased.

2) Nudity

Seems like it goes without saying, but here we are. Guests can’t be naked at the parks.

That is the essence of  ‘dress code.’

In the past, a female guest lifted her top and flashed her chest against the glass of her cable car while aboard Walt Disney World Resort’s Skyliner. This is against the rules and could result in being banned from Disney theme parks. Just don’t do it.

3) Explicit Content

The words and images on guests’ clothing can raise issues as well. As a rule, if Spotify or iTunes would stamp it with “Explicit,” you probably shouldn’t be wearing it at Disney World.

Some horror stories include guests who chose to wear a shirt that advertised sex, a hat with a crude phrase, and items with custom-made Disney-themed adult humor, as shown in the Reddit post below:

Why are people allowed in with such foul shirts- why doesn’t anyone have concern over this

4) No Dressing Too Much Like the Face Characters

Along different lines, but definitely reprehensible, guests must be careful about dressing too much to look like the princesses and other face characters available to meet and greet at the Disney Parks.

Some guests have taken things too far and even signed autographs and taken pictures with children at Magic Kingdom. I guess their parents didn’t feel like waiting in line. It breaks the Disney magic and cheapens the experience.

One Florida man even wore a costume and name tag that made him look like he worked there as a Cast Member! Scary!

Actual Cast Members can’t stop everyone, so some people will surely get away with things. Half of the people only get caught because they share pictures on social media!

Officially, “Disney reserves the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that is considered inappropriate or attire that could detract from the experience of other Guests.”

There’s a huge culture of Disney adults who enjoy the parks, but some of them need to remember what Disney is about and help preserve the magic for everyone.

What’s the worst guest behavior you’ve seen in the Disney Parks? Let us know in the comments. 

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
