“Disney Look” Policy Revised for Cast Members: Beards Allowed

It was announced today by Orlando Sentinel’s Jason Garcia via Twitter that the strict “Disney Look” policy that all cast members must abide by has been revised once again. Cast members will now be allowed to don beards while onstage.

Several years ago Disney revised their original “look” by allowing cast members to have mustaches. This expanded the hiring pool for the Disney parks. Now, the pool can expand even further.

It must be noted that there are guidelines to the new beard allowance. Bearded cast members must keep it trimmed down to a quarter-inch length.

What do you think of the new “look” revision? Will allowing cast members to have beards ruin the “Disney look”? Leave me some comments below.

    That’s how it is for my Patrick! (Yes, the Marvel guy on this site.) His facial hair grows in SO quickly, it’s crazy. I never liked facial hair on any guy before he came along.

    I am 100% a ok with this! And for a good reason!

    Before I was with my fiancé, I never really understood why any man had facial hair. I thought, gross! Gross! Gross! Now, living with someone whose facial hair grows back overnight, I could never ever expect someone to shave that down to nothing everyday. Now he trims with an electric razor, but to have a clean shave daily? He would have such razor burn that he would be in physical pain! So, before you go getting upset at someone for having some facial hair, as long as they maintain it, give them some credit. :)

    Unless the men are in character as a pirate I think beards are nasty.
