A woman who visited Walt Disney World Resort says she was ‘dress-coded’ by theme park staff, and the viral TikTok detailing the alleged incident has led to a wider debate over the code policy organizational attire.
Content creator Nicole DeLosReyes took a family trip for Mother’s Day to the resort town of Orlando in early May, according to TikTok. On Monday, May 9, she uploaded a video to TikTok saying she had been turned away from one of Disney’s theme parks.
“Guys, it happened. I got a dress code at Disney, and I was told to leave or get a shirt,” DeLosReyes said in the footage. “So, now we’re going to get a shirt.”

In the seven-second clip, DeLosReyes showed her followers wearing a white tie-front top.
The video garnered over 7.9 million views, 1.2 million likes and 4,240 comments.
DeLosReyes did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
Commenters below the video were split on whether it was right to turn people down for a shirt.
Some argued that the shirt could be considered inappropriate for a venue where children are present, while others saw no issue with the shirt DeLosReyes chose to wear.

“The amount of people agreeing with Disney dress coding is insane… Anyway you were cute,” one commenter wrote.
“You are [sic] the tops aren’t even that revealing…they know Ariel is wearing a seashell bra right?” another commenter joked.
“They posted everything on the website,” one TikTok user said. “You could have gone to Disney Springs if it was that important.”
“They don’t allow tops held together by ties/strings [because] they could come undone or get caught in something on the rides,” another user explained.

Fox News Digital reached out to representatives from Disney Parks and The Walt Disney Company to clarify the organization’s theme park dress code policy and how it relates to DeLosReyes’ chosen shirt.
MagicBand registration tapes for Disney hotels and theme parks have also been requested. No response has yet been received.
A few commenters accused DeLosReyes of intentionally violating the dress code in an attempt to get a free shirt after TikTok users revealed last year that cast members sometimes gave away merchandise vouchers to cover the cost of new Disney themed shirts.
DeLosReyes refuted these free shirt accusations in the comments section, writing, “I didn’t do it on purpose. I don’t care about a fucking free shirt, I just wasted a nice cut.”
She also denied being given a shirt, which she says is why she went back to the hotel to change.
Another TikTok user, however, argued that DeLosReyes should have been entitled to a free shirt.
“If they watch your body you deserve the free shirt lol,” the user wrote.
DeLosReyes explained her experience and fashion choice in a follow-up video on Tuesday, May 10, where she said she wasn’t exactly mad at Disney World.
“I’m over 21 and I’ve been to Epcot,” DeLosReyes said. “I don’t know if any of you know Epcot, but you can drink all over the world. So there’s a lot of adults there getting trashed.”
She added, “It was a joke. I had no problem with it. I just thought it was funny. I went back to my hotel, got changed and went back to Epcot.”
A day later, DeLosReyes responded to a TikTok user to reiterate that she hadn’t worn the shirt on purpose. She retrieved her shirt from what appears to be a chest of drawers at Disney’s Beach Club Resort and showed off what it looked like one last time.

“I love this shirt and this shirt loves me. Not Disney,” DeLosReyes said. “People have opinions. People have policies. Sorry if I offended you.”
It is unclear if Walt Disney World Resort still offers clothing for dress code violators.
Last year, TikTok user Amanda DiMeo showed her followers that Magic Kingdom cast members let her get a $75 spirit shirt when they asked her to change her top. “under the breasts”.
DiMeo told Fox News Digital the voucher limit was $50, but a manager let him get a higher value shirt. The video has since been viewed 31.1 million times.
Walt Disney World Resort has posted its current dress code on its travel booking website.
Clothing that Disney deems “inappropriate” and grounds that “may result in denial of admission” include clothing that “exposes excessive portions of skin.”

Other misguided styles include “excessively torn clothes”; objectionable material with obscene language or graphics, including tattoos; and costumes and masks for guests over 14.
“Proper attire, including shoes and shirts, must be worn at all times,” Disney’s dress code states. “The parks are a relaxed, family-friendly environment. Ensuring the parks are family-friendly is an important part of the Disney experience. With that in mind, we ask that you use your discretion and common sense.”
