A Walt Disney World Resort visitor claimed she was told to “get a shirt or leave the park” by theme park staff after she allegedly broke the dress code.
TikTok user Nicole DeLosReyes took a Mother’s Day family trip to the Orlando resort earlier on May 9.
During her visit, she uploaded a video saying she was “dress coded” while wearing the revealing white, knot-front crop top she wore in her video.
In the seven-second video, which has racked up more than 1.5million likes, DeLosReyes said: “Guys it happened. I got dress-coded at Disney, and I was told to leave or get a shirt. So, now we’re getting a shirt.”
The video has also garnered more than 7.9 million views and 4,240 comments from divided users who had a heated debate on whether the park staff are right to turn people away because of their clothing.
Some users argued that her shirt could be inappropriate for an attraction that is popular with children but others didn’t see the problem.
One user said: “The amount of people agreeing with Disney dress coding you is crazy … Anyways u looked, cute girl.”
Another wrote: “You’re [sic] tops, not even that revealing … they know Ariel wears a seashell bra right?”
A third said: “They have everything posted on the website. You could have went to Disney Springs if it was such a big deal.”
A fourth commented: “They don’t allow tops held together by ties/strings [because] they could come undone or get caught on something on rides.”

A few commenters accused DeLosReyes of intentionally violating the dress code as an attempt to get a free shirt after some visitors were given free shirts for violating the dress code last year.
But DeLosReyes refuted those free shirt accusations in the comments section by writing, “I didn’t do it on purpose. I don’t care for a free damn shirt I just wasted a cute fit.”
She also denied receiving a shirt and claims she went back to her hotel room to change.
Disney World Resort has been contacted by the Daily Star for comment regarding the incident.
However, the park’s website said that they “reserve the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that is considered inappropriate or attire that could detract from the experience of other Guests.”
Inappropriate attire includes revealing clothing which is not appropriate for a family-friendly environment.
