Starting on October 28th Disney will be relaxing the “Disney Look” for cast members working at the theme parks.
Cast Members will now be allowed to wear a single bracelet or necklace with a pendant that is one inch or smaller.
Also, Cast Members will now be allowed to grow facial hair one inch or less and be seen with stubble while growing their facial hair, which is a change as Cast Members choosing to have a beard would need to grow their beard in their time off.
What is the Disney Look? Here is what Disney has to say about it…
At Disney Parks and Resorts, we’ve become famous for our friendly, classic appearance. This look is not a coincidence, but a result of our cast members’ support of the Appearance Standards, or as we call it, the Disney Look.
The Disney Look is a classic look that is clean, natural, polished and professional, and avoids “cutting edge” trends or extreme styles. It is designed with our costumed and non-costumed cast members in mind. Our themed costumed cast members are a critical part of enhancing the experience of our Disney show, and our non-costumed cast members also play an important role as representatives of the Disney brand. Regardless of the position you hold with us, when you take pride in your appearance, you become a role model for those around you, and you convey the attitude of excellence that has become synonymous with the Disney name.
Are you glad to see the change for Cast Members?
