The “free shirt hack” saga continues! Recently, a Disney Park Guest attempted to enter a Walt Disney World theme park with a revealing outfit to test the viral TikTok hack.
Right around the time of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary in October 2021, a Disney Guest was escorted to a gift shop within the Park to receive a free shirt. Her outfit was too revealing and deemed inappropriate for the Disney’s Park dress code.
The Disney fandom may remember the uproar it caused that Disney would pay for a shirt rather than ask the Guest to leave or purchase their own shirt. The “Disney free shirt hack” went viral, with all sorts of people attempting to receive a free Disney shirt.
Well, thankfully, Disney caught on fairly quickly. Instead of Disney giving out free shirts to those with revealing tops, they asked the Guest to purchase their own shirt or leave the Park.
And while we figured everyone has caught on to Disney’s dress code by now, one Park Guest decided to attempt the “free shirt hack” while recently visiting Walt Disney World Resort.
As you can see in the video, which now has over 6 million views, the TikTok user was stopped at EPCOT, and as noted, Disney “Tried to force us to buy one. Debunked!”
Disney’s dress code clearly states, “Proper attire, including shoes and shirts, must be worn at all times. The parks are a casual, family-oriented environment. Ensuring that the parks are family-friendly is an important part of the Disney experience. In that spirit, we ask you to use your discretion and common sense. 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.”
Also included in the dress code is “Clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment.”
We’re glad to know a year later, Disney is still holding its ground and not giving in to the “free shirt hack” for all those seeking a family environment on a Disney vacation.
