Is that a change? I’ve seen CM outfits in both gas stations and Publix. As a local it’s really not weird, and I’d expect it’s mostly locals that are the ones that will come across this.There are a lot of changes that individually aren't a huge deal, but combined lead to an overall decrease in show quality.
Allowing CM's to take their costumes home, so you see them in full costume pumping gas after work? Sure not a huge deal, but not a plus either.
Visible tattoos on CM's inside the park? Individually not a huge deal, but combined with the lower service, wearing costumes homes, etc- it gives CM's a very different public perception.
