The decade's most triggering comedy
Disney fans are furious as more photos of male employees dressed in women’s attire surfaced online.
The newest images come courtesy of Libs of TikTok. The account shared images on its X account which were reportedly submitted by Disney theme park attendees.
“Disney has men dressed as women, wearing dresses greeting children at some of their attractions,” LOTT wrote in the X caption. “Received both of these this week from disturbed visitors.”

X users expressed outrage and disgust in their replies.
“Imagine paying all that money only to find drag princesses at Disney World,” one account posted.
“Total degeneracy,” a second agreed.
A third follower compared his time working at the parks with the way things are now.
“When I worked at Disney World in the early 90s, male cast members could not have facial hair, you could not have visible tattoos (either sex), jewelry was limited in size and quantity, and females could only wear muted makeup. Plus, only males could work at 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and The Jungle Cruise,” he wrote. “…I bet Walt is spinning in his cryogenic chamber.”
This wasn’t the first time Disney parks made headlines for photos of male employees in dresses. As The Daily Wire reported in May, a TikTok clip of a man in a dress welcoming small children into Disneyland’s Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique went viral on social media.
The new pics appear to be taken outside the same boutique but feature different employees.
Disney Parks updated its uniform policy in 2021 to allow employees, or as they’re referred to in the park, “cast members,” to wear gendered clothing of their preference regardless of their biological sex.
“We want our guests to see their own backgrounds and traditions reflected in the stories, experiences and products they encounter in their interactions with Disney,” a Disney official said in a statement at the time. “And we want our cast members — and future cast members — to feel a sense of belonging at work.”
The dress code also allowed cast members to show their tattoos and let men wear nail polish.
“Inclusion is essential to our culture and leads us forward as we continue to realize our rich legacy of engaging storytelling, exceptional service, and Disney magic,” the statement continued.
“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.”
