TikToker forced to change out of 'inappropriate' top at Disney

A woman has shared the moment she was asked to cover her 'inappropriate' top during a visit to Walt Disney World in Florida.

Alyssa Schuller shared a video to TikTok which shows a staff member escorting her to get a T-shirt in order to cover up the top she was wearing to the park - a black bikini-style top with string ties.

Alyssa commented on her own video, explaining she had been enjoying a separate Disney World park on the same day prior to the incident.

"FYI, I was at Animal Kingdom all morning without an issue. Went to Epcot and this happened. Went back to Animal Kingdom and had no issue once again," Alyssa wrote.

"If Disney wants to implement a dress code, then they need to do that. But the inconsistency? Please."


Alyssa's video sparked a debate among viewers about dress codes.

"Why does it matter what she's wearing if she's paying a fortune to get into the park anyway," one person wrote. "I don't see anything wrong with your outfit."

Someone else pointed out that one of Disney's most renowned characters wears nothing but a bra, and therefore should negate any dress code imposed on women.

"Women should dress however they want, wherever they want," they commented. "Ariel literally wears a seashell bra, so how is this inappropriate?"

Others argued that since Disney World is an establishment for families and children, dressing modestly should come with the territory.

"Maybe wear an actual shirt then?" someone wrote. "It's literally a children's park."

"Why would you wear that to Disney anyway?" added another. " It's known for being a pure, family-focused environment. Wear that to the bar later."

"Why are you dressed like you're going to a club though? It's Disney," someone else sounded off.

Some viewers informed Alyssa that Disney World does have a dress code in place.

The Disney World website outlines the park's dress code, stating;

"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."

It went on to define the type of attire considered inappropriate — and which may result in refusal of entry —as;

"Clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment."

"Disney has many rules," one TikTok user wrote. "If you go, accept the rules. Don't like them? Don't go."

"They have a dress code," commented another. "This one is on you, bestie."

Alyssa's video comes after another woman Amanda, who posts to the TikTok account @amandaaadimeo, uploaded a similar video explaining how she was given a $97 (USD$75) long-sleeved top at Disney free of charge because of her 'underboob' shirt.

According to Amanda, when she entered the Magic Kingdom area she was stopped by a park staffer — known as 'cast members' — who issued her a gift shop voucher for a free shirt because she was 'exposing' her underboob 'a little bit'.

"If you're wearing a shirt that shows a little underboob they'll write you a ticket for when you first enter Magic Kingdom so you can get a free shirt at the nearest gift shop," she explained in the video.

Clearly thrilled with her 'cute' freebie, Amanda posed in the pink top and thanked the theme park for the new addition to her wardrobe.

"OK but it's so cute and if it's free it's for me," she wrote. "Thank u Disney."
