It’s been a long time coming for Disney to allow individuals to express themselves, and still work for the place that creates so much magic. I mean that makes sense right? Anything is possible in a Disney universe.
According to Blog Mickey, Disney recently released the following statement about their cast members…
“We’re looking at other traditions, too – including the policies that guide how our cast members show up for work. Our new approach provides greater flexibility with respect to forms of personal expression surrounding gender-inclusive hairstyles, jewelry, nail styles, and costume choices; and allowing appropriate visible tattoos. We’re updating them to not only remain relevant in today’s workplace, but also enable our cast members to better express their cultures and individuality at work.
Moving forward, we believe our cast, who are at the center of the magic that lives in all our experiences, can provide the best of Disney’s legendary guest service when they have more options for personal expression – creating richer, more personal and more engaging experiences with our guests.”
This is FANTASTIC news! I know many of my theme park friends will definitely be happy about this.
