But two women who said they were recently asked to change out of “inappropriate” tops while there said the theme park’s rules aren’t consistent.
The women told Insider that Disney World employees had asked them to change out of shirts that they’d previously worn at the theme park with no issues. One said she was left feeling embarrassed when she was asked to cover up.
She said in the video that she’d worn a shirt that showed her underboob and was given a voucher for a free shirt to change into as she walked into Magic Kingdom.
DiMeo previously told Insider that while she “felt fine” about the experience and “was happy” to get a free shirt that day, she had been unaware that her top broke Disney’s clothing rules.
“I actually wore that shirt before in Disney, back in January,” she told Insider.
In an email to Insider, Schueller said that she “wasn’t aware” of Disney’s dress code before visiting and that she didn’t know “a single person” who checks company clothing rules before visiting amusement parks.
What made Schueller particularly frustrated, she told Insider, was that she’d worn the same bikini-style top to Animal Kingdom earlier that day and had “no issues.” She said she was approached by a Disney employee after arriving at Epcot for a dinner reservation.
She recalled the employee saying she wasn’t allowed to wear the top she had on and pointing out the thin ties that held it together.
“I questioned him about having no issues earlier in the day at Animal Kingdom and he said, ‘Well they shouldn’t have allowed you in,'” she said.
Schueller said she was left feeling “embarrassed” by the experience.
“I was with both of my parents and my older sister, and we were late to our 2:15 p.m. dinner reservation,” she said. “We had to sit and wait until 4 p.m. to eat, wasting the majority of our day for a romper that showed nothing but a torso and shoulders.”
Schueller said that while the employee who’d escorted her to an Epcot gift shop was “extremely nice and patient” and even helped her pick a new shirt, she still felt that Disney World needed to rethink its rules.
“Having a dress code isn’t a terrible idea, but I do think Disney World needs to be more consistent on enforcing it,” Schueller said. “I went to Animal Kingdom later in the day and again had no issue with what I had on. I also checked the dress code later on out of curiosity and nothing in there mentions ties on clothing.”
Representatives for Disney World did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
