    Re: Teen Refused Entry over Costume

    There's a reason behind the rules being in place, JCruise highlighted a very good one, I feel that this girl was treated fairly even if she didn't like it, let's face it she was, so kudos to the CMs at DAK for handling the situation well.

      15 yr old young lady taken into custody for wearing a Tinkerbell costume

      Sadly, it's true. Reports are spreading quickly, especially on Facebook. A 15 yr old was apprehended by Disney security because she dressed in a Tinkerbell costume. According to televised accounts , her, her boyfriend and parents were escorted by security to a secure location at Disney"s Animal Kingdom and held for a reported 2-1/2- 3 hours because her Tinkerbell costume was too "authentic"? Google this and you will see first-hand the details. According to news reports, the family had saved up for 1 1/2 years for this trip. Disney told the young lady that she would not be allowed into Animal Kingdom. Ironic, because she and her family had already visited MGM without a problem. Again, according to breaking news reports, Disney offerred the party "fast-passes" to the attractions for their inconvenience, but the young lady was required to change out of the costume that she had worked on for months or she could not enter the park. Disney provided her with a complimentary T-shirt + shorts from a gift shop.THIS IS MY IST POST. I GREW UP IN SAN DIEGO IN THE EARLY 1960'S AND HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO ACTUALLY SEE WALT HIMSELF AT A GATHERING IN DISNEYLAND. I believe in my heart that Walt would have embraced that young Disney fan and would of insisted on a photo. (complimentary, of course).
      Boy, how the Disney culture has changed. This young lady deserves to have the Magical experience she were hoping for actually happen. WHAT SAY DISNEY?

        Re: 15 yr old young lady taken into custody for wearing a Tinkerbell costume

        Actually... the story is being exaggerated on Facebook and elsewhere. The girl violated a longstanding Disney policy of not allowing guests to dress up like Disney characters on Disney property.

        The reasons for the policy have been discussed at length in this thread: http://micechat.com/forums/disneylan...me-policy.html

        it combines fantasy and history, adventure and learning,
        together with every variety of recreation and fun,
        designed to appeal to everyone."

          Perhaps, but children do not have the life experiences that you and I have.

            There are a variety of reasons of why they can't wear costumes in the park. It's a rule and it's even printed on your ticket. Whether you agree with it or not you have to abide by the rules.

              I understand. I just do not know why it is OK in1 park but not OK in another.

                It is not supposed to be okay in any park. If one cop doesn't pull you over for speeding, does that mean the one down the street must let you go as well?

                  Re: 15 yr old young lady taken into custody for wearing a Tinkerbell costume

                  Howd!y Pards,

                  Well, the truth of it is that the real Tinkerbell wouldn't be allowed to go on many of the rides at Disney cause she is just too short!!!

                  Funny, too, that over at Hogsmeade they are not only encouragin' muggles to dress up as wizards and witches and such...they SELL Hogwarts robes and wands and things in ALL sizes...and hope folks will buy 'em and wear 'em! And, they do!

                  But, you can't blame Disney for not wantin' folks to get too carried away... Disney Characters have certain behavior characteristics and expectations. Real people from the real world in Disney outfits do not. So, how are folks from Pennsylvania s'pose to know the difference between a real Disney character and a beautiful young girl dressed up as Tinkerbell who is in no way employed by Disney?

                  Next we'll have people dressed up as pirates with tattoos and such coming into the park and rings through their noses and ears and such... Nope, can't have that. No adult princesses either...not allowed...nope...sorry.

                  You have got to take a visit to Disney seriously! Do not be an overly enthusiastic fan. Proper decorum must be maintained at all times...and all visitors must comply with the dress code. Mouse Ears may be purchased by anyone who so desires inside the park...as long as they do not look much like the real Mickey Mouse...

                  Strict rules will be maintained at all times...and those who violate them will receive...uh...fast passes...and free shorts and a T-Shirt.
                  Disney can be mighty hard on discipline...mighty hard.

                  Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

                    To be fair, Disney did give her a change of clothes and Fastpasses for her time lost. However, it should have checked before thinking it was ok.

                    Here's the story:

                      This has already been discussed on this thread. jcruise86 gave a very good example of some of the reasons that Disney doesn't want people to look like characters in the park. This policy has been around almost forever, and there are very good reasons for it. It sucks that it ruined this girl's day, and I do feel sorry for her, but the DAK CMs made the right call. She shouldn't have been allowed in DHS like that.
                      I knew if this business was ever to get anywhere, if this business was ever to grow, it could never do it by having to answer to someone unsympathetic to its possibilities, by having to answer to someone with only one thought or interest, namely profits. For my idea of how to make profits has differed greatly from those who generally control businesses such as ours. I have blind faith in the policy that quality, tempered with good judgment and showmanship, will win against all odds.

                            Kids 9 and under are ok in costumes. 10 and older, no. More info and links in this thread.

                                Which is the real crime in this story.. that the parents aren't taking responsibility and instead are trying to milk this.

                                This is the most exaggerated story.. 'taken into custody'... seriously?

                                It's simple... they were in violation of park policy, they were denied entry because of it, Disney even offered them free clothing.

                                The only reason such a scene would be dragged out is because the self-centered ones wouldn't comply and were probably arguing about it.

                                Sad but true is this family's handling of the situation and continued efforts to promote it.

                                  Yes because news on Facebook is never blown out of proportions. Rules exist for a reason, if they didn't we'd have a lot more people falling off into the pit around the seance room at HM.

                                    It "ruined" their vacation. More like they changed clothes and could still enjoy their vacation. People are idiots quite often.

                                      Apparently this occurred during Star Wars Weekends which could likely explain why she was allowed into the Disney-MGM Studios.
