Mother told to show less cleavage during Disneyland family trip
Disneyland... where one of the main characters is a guy in a sailor suit without pants...
Her trip was "ruined"? Seems like an over-reaction to me. If what she was wearing is the outfit in the photo, seems the park employee might have been out-of-line but if not, who knows. I smell a lawsuit.
I guess Disney doesn't believe in the statement "If you got it, flaunt it".
No, it's not that kind of company, I guess.
I wouldn't say that she has overreacted, it's a feeling and this feeling of being at Disney with her family was destroyed, and yes, the park employee was way out of line, seeing the photo, he had his "5 seconds" I presume. Lawsuit? Maybe, and why not, family time, especially in this case is very precious. All families would understand this, especially the families who care for each other with a small child in tow and a soldier husband who serves his country.
As for me, I don't like Disney very much, while they have shaped some "iconic" characters, their "Johnny do good" image is a little too fake, it's too good America, it's too good to be true, IMHO.
Ditto. If your trip was ruined because of a comment like this, how on earth do you get through life being that sheltered? I get that she may have been offended, but her trip was ruined? Seriously?
If that's what she was wearing at the time of the incident, I'd agree that the employee was out of line, but the article doesn't specify whether or nor that was the one. Without knowing exactly what she was wearing at the time, it's impossible to say.
I wouldn't be surprised if she threatened one, but I don't know how successful she would be. What grounds would she sue under? Disney is a private company, and has the right to set standards for conduct and attire on it's property. Unless she can prove she was discriminated against in some way, I don't think she's got much of a shot (based on what was presented in the article). I don't think "not being able to dress how you want on private property" counts as a protected class under any discrimination statute (at least any that I know of).
Lawsuits, at least in the United States, are decided based on the law, not on the social importance of family time. In order to file a lawsuit, you must have evidence that whoever you're suing violated your legal rights in some way. As I said above, she's going to have a difficult time with that. If this gets any traction in the US media (I don't think too many people in this country read the Independent), Disney may take a PR hit, but not much more beyond that.
I always read UK tabloids to view the best and most accurate reporting from the US...
Disney are fascist hypocrites...read about ol' Walt. "Imagineering" indeed....
Time for a more modern perspective. What's wrong with these people? This woman wasn't exactly showing a ton of cleavage and even if she were, why do the park attendants care? Are they cleavage-challenged and jealous meanies?
I forgot to add one more thing. Even though this story doesn't appear to involve DL in any way, it can only be described as:
MEJOR EN SU CLASE
OK, I don't think telling someone to show less cleavage is that big a deal, although I don't have much cleavage myself. It's not like they kicked her out of the park, after all.
But even better is that the story cites one of the park rules that you can't impersonate a Disney character. That is hilarious! I can only imagine throngs of fake dwarves running around trying to harass the real Snow Whites. Or Br'er Fox and Br'er Rabbit impersonators going at it to the death. The possibilities are virtually limitless!
I'm glad I'm not in Washington or Colorado right now, or I may have laughed myself to suffocation.
Hmmm. She's showing about 10%. If the picture represents what was seen, I've seen a lot more.
You, my friend, are a pisser! Thanks!
II smell gitter-accented body spray.
Thank god Disney doesn't run the Octoberfest in Munich. If you know what I mean.
Come to think of it, what do the servers in the Biergarten in Epcot's German Pavilion wear?
I've always thought that particular rule was so that pervs didn't dress up as a character and get little kids to sit on their laps and allow touching, etc.
Can you impersonate Daffy Duck then? (owned by Warner Bros.)
I've planned and coordinated weddings in Disney World and they won't even allow a bride into the park wearing her gown during park hours. Ceremonies MUST be before the park opens OR at the Wedding Pavilion - that's it!!! They are very inflexible when it comes to this stuff, unless of course it benefits Disney such as with a promotional gig.
I mean, I guess anyone can sue for anything. But this strikes me as a gigantic waste of time and the court system. I had a United employee smack my hand a few years ago because it was inadvertently blocking her view of her screen. Was I utterly shocked? Yes. But she didn't break any bones and oddly I survived her having a really bad day.
I'm sure if the experience happened as detailed it was unpleasant. And, I wouldn't be surprised if Disney did something to compensate her.
But lawsuit? Feh. Move on.
I'd imagine that's certainly part of it, but I'd think that any company would want to prevent anyone from impersonating it's staff members, not only to prevent any sinister or criminal behavior, but also to prevent potential confusion and to protect the image of the company. Depending on the quality of the costume, a customer could easily confuse a regular person wearing a costume for a Disney employee.
Could you imagine if a guy wearing a Mickey Mouse costume robbed somebody at Disneyland/Disney World?
Police: Could you describe the suspect?
Victim: He was wearing a Mickey Mouse costume.
[Police officers look around.]
Police: Umm, yeah, we're gonna have some trouble with this one.
Muahaha! It would be awesome for independent porn producers to take note of this potential...a plotline, indeed! "Carmen @ Disney!" Our heroine meets Snow White, Brer and Happy and gets it on with.... Jeff Robertson in a Grumpy costume.......ahaha! Oh, never mind....I suppose this is the family-friendly channel. But we agree, Disney totally asks for it with their image-fascism.
Yup, disneyland has a dress code. I didn't find out about it the hard way but I did read about it on disboards.com. Thought it was a joke at first.
