Disneyland has changed its dress code policy ahead of reopening. Here’s what to expect
Disneyland employees — called Cast Members — may look a little different compared to when you last saw them
Disneyland has made some changes to its dress code to make employees feel more included, welcomed and appreciated when they’re at the park.
Changes to Disney’s dress code
- Disney will now allow employees to show off “gender-inclusive hairstyles, jewelry, nail styles, costume choices and appropriate, visible tattoos,” according to KABC.
- Disney said it will allow “greater flexibility” when it comes to hairstyles, jewelry, nail styles and costumes. The park said it will allow appropriate tattoos, as well.
- “We’re updating them to not only remain relevant in today’s workplace, but also enable our cast members to better express their cultures and individuality at work,” according to Disney Parks.
Why Disney made dress code changes
We want our guests to see their own backgrounds and traditions reflected in the stories, experiences and products they encounter in their interactions with Disney. And we want our cast members — and future cast members — to feel a sense of belonging at work.
That means cultivating an environment where all people feel welcomed and appreciated for their unique life experiences, perspectives and culture. Where we celebrate allyship and support for each other. And where diverse views and ideas are sought after as critical contributions towards our collective success.
When does Disneyland reopen?
Disneyland will reopen April 30. The park will have a series of rides and experience available during its reopening. Only California residents can visit the park right now due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Disneyland originally closed its doors because of the pandemic back in March 2020. It took almost one year for the park to receive the proper state guidelines from the state of California that would allow it to reopen with reduced capacity.
Meanwhile, Disney World has remained open since the summer of 2020.
