When it comes to being a cast member at the Disneyland or Walt Disney World Resorts, you’re expected to adhere to a set of appearance guidelines called the “Disney Look.” This week, those guidelines got an update.
The new guidelines relate to visible jewelry and men’s facial hair. Before the change, cast members were only allowed to wear medical alert bracelets and necklaces, in addition to rings, earrings, and a business-style watch, and men had to keep their facial hair trimmed to no longer than a quarter-inch.
With the update, the policy is a little looser. Now, cast members can wear one “modest visible bracelet in good taste” and one “modest visible necklace in good condition.”
For men looking to grow longer facial hair, their beards, mustaches, and goatees can now be up to one inch in length. Stubble during the growing-out process is now acceptable. Men previously had to wait until they were on vacation or away from work to grow their beards and mustaches.
Should cast members have to stick to the classic and professional Disney Look, or should they be allowed to express themselves with modern styles and accessories? Sound off in the comments below!
