It’s pretty clear to me. The OP asked specifically about opening a hotel door. Asked if there was a Dis policy against it. Stated that it was difficult to take a photo at Disney and not include others. Had responded to a couple of others statements and had not stated they are doing this at a hotel outside of Disney.Hold on.
It is unclear (at least to me) whether the original poster is asking (granted, on a WDW focused website) is he/she would be wearing the "uniform" at TOT, some Disney hotel, or somewhere else (Hamptonality to the extreme) and whether this is a onetime Halloween prank or a planned ongoing escapade.
Retired costumes are sold at property control all the time. They can ABSOLUTELY be obtained by cast members legitimately. Now, the cast member shouldn't have been reselling them, but getting it in the first place is fine.Oh, I have no doubt it's authentic. And I assume whoever "retained" it took out the RFID tag. I mean, it's a cool item for your collection. But you have to know it was likely taken or retained without permission. So I'd keep it under wraps. I have just recently seen a few pieces of Disney wardrobe for sale on Ebay. I'm sure those are stolen or "retained" without permission as well.
How about no and don't record my children.... We would have serious issue....So years ago I purchased an actual former castmembers uniform from the Tower of Terror. I know that WDW parks will NOT allow people to dress in real or even similar costumes to actual uniforms worn by castmates. I would like to video people's reactions to having a TOT bellhop opening their hotel door for them. Is there a policy barring this? Has anyone else tried this? I figure the worse that can happen is that the hotel may ask me to leave the premise.
Good luck to you, but this isn't a great idea. Don't be too turned off by people's reactions. If you have a good idea, people are very supportive and will do their best to help you make it the best.I understand in today’s world all the suspicion. Thanks for the comments. I have recently retired and looking for fun things to do and create Youtube content sharing whatever fun i might be able to capture.
