    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    You're reading that into it. There is a standard for both. One is perhaps meant to visually imply the other and make guests from around the world feel more comfortable approaching any cast member, but I don't believe most people are saying that people who look a certain way also act a certain...

    News New Polynesian Resort DVC villas building to open 2024

    I am guessing the "Disney" wording is trying to conveniently avoid Swan & Dolphin looming on the horizon. You can absolutely see the other resorts and the Magic Kingdom from many lagoon-view rooms. That I can see a castle, a modern A-frame, and a Victorian hotel from the beach of the Polynesian...

    No one said appearance and attitude were directly connected.

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    Guess who is not in a guest-facing customer service role for an entertainment company known most especially for appealing to children and maintaining a higher-than-normal standard for their staff in terms of appearance and attitude? Guess who did not agree to follow those standards when...

    News New Polynesian Resort DVC villas building to open 2024

    Wait, what’s the issue here? Is there a backstage view of Caribbean Beach from the Riviera that looks especially bad? You’ve always been able to see the resorts from one another whether their themes meshed or not, especially around the Seven Seas Lagoon and Crescent Lake.

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    I seriously don't think a dress and appearance code has very much to do with a person's willingness to accept a position at all, particularly at a level of employment where uniforms are the norm. The degree to which Disney enforces and/or punishes employees for non-adherence may result in job...

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    That was the original framing, but the thread was bumped due to a suggestion that enforcement of existing policy would possibly be stepped up. I don’t think anyone actually suggested the re-covering of tattoos; rather, only minor things like modifying the makeup and jewelry policy were...

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    Why do people tolerate uniforms at fast food restaurants? It's not some massive deterrent. It's the norm. If there is a "problem", it is that Disney expects more in terms of adherence to all of their guidelines for appearance, behavior, and demeanor. It's not that anything specifically is too...

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    That is up to Disney to decide. They may make decisions based on changing cultural norms and a desire to attract more people, but it is not ridiculous to have a generally easily achievable dress and grooming standard simply because of the year. Lower paying jobs are almost universally more...

    News New Play Pavilion to replace Epcot's Wonders of Life

    Both of its neighbors are already attractions that deal in the future of space travel, one fantastically and one far enough in the future that it won't be realized any time soon. There's no reason they can't do the same with the aforementioned topics; just don't focus on the immediate horizon.

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    Just because dress codes are less common now does not mean that people are incapable of following them. Literal children can and do comply with them. They can ban whatever they want. Doing so would potentially limit the labor pool, so they may make concessions. But you're not going to see a...

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    It's about setting expectations more than just passing it off as cultural. American elementary and high school students and faculty can deal with this just fine in schools with dress codes. There's no reason adults can't handle it.

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    These are generally not hard things to fix. Have makeup remover, nail polish remover, disposable grooming supplies, and some heavy-coverage concealer available backstage. Remove jewelry. Have some extra costumes on hand. Sure, you can't instantly undo someone's fresh dye job, but 99% of issues...

    I would be down for an Orange Birdius kiosk.

    News 'Beyond Big Thunder Mountain' Blue Sky concept revealed for Magic Kingdom

    Adapting the Disney stage version to the screen would actually be worthwhile, which is more than I can say for most of the remakes. However, it would fundamentally change the target audience.

    News New Play Pavilion to replace Epcot's Wonders of Life

    There's no reason it has to be focused on current trends or healthy habits. It could be more theoretical, focusing on possibilities with assistive technologies, biotech, cybernetics, etc.

    News 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort reopening in April 2024

    I wasn't suggesting Aladdin and Mirabel should stay. I was making two separate statements ... 1) Tiana works better than Aladdin and Mirabel since she was at least alive during the tail end of the correct time period, and 2) if they're going to use characters that don't quite fit, giving them...

    News 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort reopening in April 2024

    For the film, yes. For 1900 Park Fare, I’m suggesting alternate costumes that fit with the restaurant.

    News 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort reopening in April 2024

    Fair enough. The Tremaines are definitely in Victorian style. I don’t think Tiana’s princess dress works all that well, though. I actually think a compromise between the bayou look and a gown could be nice. Like, similar silhouette on the upper body to the bayou jacket, but lose the hat, add...

    News 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort reopening in April 2024

    To be fair, Tiana is probably the only character on that roster to actually exist during the Victorian era. 🤷🏻‍♂️
