Everything at Disney is done for a reason, for the guest experience and to bring in more money. They have a policy that all the purchases you make can be delivered to your hotel if you’re staying at a Disney resort. Or, they can get delivered to the front of the park for you to pick up when you’re leaving.
There are many things you can buy in the numerous gift shops located throughout every park. So come ready to spend!
Princesses Take Out the Trash Too
While it's not the most glamorous job, everyone is expected to do their part when it comes to keeping Disney parks clean. Even Cinderella. Unless, of course, she has her mice around to help her. In this photo, it looks like Alice isn’t so happy about the task at hand.
Despite there being tons of trash cans located every step of the way in the parks, many guests toss their waste recklessly on the ground. Regardless, Disney is committed to keeping the grounds clean and also helping making the environment greener.
Cast Members Will Help Make Purchasing Easier
Cast members are also able to make purchases easily. If you ask nicely, a cast member will bring you your purchases to the front of the park so you can pick them up when you're leaving, although I'm not sure how moral you would feel to ask a tiny Tinkerbell to haul your goods around the park.
But, kudos to Disney for helping to make all of your shopping dreams come true (while of course making more money for the company.)
Cast Members Often Speed
Everyone is caught speeding at one point or another, Disney employees are no exception. Apparently on Disney property, the Disney po po pull over more cast members than actual guests for speeding. Perhaps they're just that excited to get to work? Or leave work... Whatever it is, we are sure that in this magical land, the punishment isn't so bad.
But, visitors also tend to get charged with traffic violations. In 2016 at Disney World in Orlando, two guests were on their way north to the park when they hit the pole holding up the official “Walt Disney World: Where Dreams Come True” sign. The welcome sign was knocked over and traffic into the park was halted for some time while emergency crew members worked to get rid of the damage done as swift as possible. Hopefully the incident didn’t end in any fatalities or prevent any dreams from coming true that day.
And You Must Have Eyebrows
Disney doesn’t only set forth rules regarding men’s hair. There are also some very stringent rules when it comes to how female cast members can wear their hair. The Disney Look encourages “classic, simple hair styling whether it be a classic up-do or a shoulder-length cut.” Perhaps thanks to Pocahontas or Rapunzel, braided hairstyles are acceptable at Disney as long as there are no embellishments involved since “no beads or ornamentation are permitted.” Hair color also needs to look natural, so if you’re hoping to keep your purple dye in, you better be okay to go back to being a brunette. For cast members not in costume, their hairstyles also bear importance. Female cast members aren’t allowed to shave their eyebrows. Their hair must also be in a neat fashion, weather brushed and down or tightly pulled back. Earrings shouldn’t be any bigger than a quarter, and fingernails should be kept short.
There is a good reason for Disney’s stringent rules when it comes to appearance. Disney spokeswoman Angela Bliss shares that the reason for Disney’s fresh and clean look is so that all guests feel comfortable when they are present with the cast.
