Disney Look- Traditions

Wow. I am officially the worst blogger ever. It has been wayyyy to long since I have posted, and I am so sorry about that!

This post is going to focus on Disney Look, the professional attire. These guidelines come from the Disney Careers website. Disney Look- Website

Business Attire for Women
  • Professional options for women include dress pants with a classic style blouse or sweater, skirted or pants suit, dress with or without a jacket, and business-style walking shorts with a blouse and jacket or vest.
  • A blazer or suit may be required at certain times, depending on your work location and the nature of your role. Check with your area leader for more information.
  • Sleeveless tops and dresses are permitted, provided the sleeve width is no fewer than three inches (approximately 7.6 cm). Tank tops, spaghetti straps, and other casual styles are not acceptable.
  • Traditional and professional style mid-calf Capri pants are permitted. Cotton twill, cargo, leggings or other casual styles of Capri pants do not present a professional image and are therefore not permitted.
  • Cotton twill full-length pants (i.e., Dockers®, khakis) are permitted only if they are neatly pressed, creased, and appear to be professionally laundered.
  • Non-costumed cast members are permitted to wear a short- or long-sleeved oxford style dress shirt with property-specific embroidered logo. A blazer is optional.
  • In addition to the options above, non-costumed women in Sports and Recreation atWalt Disney World® Resort are permitted to wear dress or golf-style shorts no shorter than three inches (7.6 cm) above the top of the knee. Shorts may be paired with a professional-style blouse (as detailed above) or with a neat, well-maintained polo or golf-style shirt. Shorts are not permitted for females in Golf Operations or for office-based cast in this area.
  • Clothing not permitted includes polo or golf-style shirts (except for Sports and Recreation cast), cargo-style pants, t-shirts, sundresses, leggings, casual shorts, wrap-around shorts, one-piece rompers and garments made of denim fabrics.
  • Winter jackets and coats should present a professional appearance and should be made of fabrics traditionally acceptable in business. For example, wool, leather and micro fiber offer good choices. Denim, nylon, satin and other casual fabrics would not meet these professional guidelines.
Clothing Lengths
Dress and skirt lengths may range from three inches (7.6 cm) above the top of the kneecap bone to the bottom of the ankle. The length of shorts should be from the top of the kneecap bone to three inches (7.6 cm) above the top of the kneecap bone. Slits in skirts, kick pleats and buttoned or snapped closures should not exceed five inches (12.7 cm) above the middle of the knee. Pants should be long enough to touch the bottom of the ankle.

Fabrics and Patterns

Fabrics should be those traditionally acceptable for business, such as tweed, wool, cotton, polyester, silk, linen, rayon or blends of these fibers. Unacceptable fabrics include spandex, gauze, metallic fabrics, sheer fabrics, clinging knits, denim and chambray. Patterns that are large graphics, large company and non-company logos, and styles that suggest extremely casual sportswear are not permitted.

After going through my closet I put together a few outfit options. Since my role for the Disney College Program is Concierge I will (so I hear) have many days of training at Disney University. Because of this I need to make sure and pack multiple professional outfits. My main struggle is my Traditions outfit. Disney is the strictest during Traditions, so this outfit needs to be 100% approved no question. I will make a note that during Traditions you will have to clip a radio on your belt to hear the class audio. Some people might not care about this, but being in a dress last time I felt silly having to clip the radio onto the back of my dress (Hunchback style!). So if this matters to you make sure you wear either pants or a skirt so you can clip the device onto your waistband. 

My first choice outfit is a salmon silk blouse from Jcrew (The outlet has amazing prices for work attire, and students get 15% off) The pants are a dressy khaki ankle crop pant with white polka dots. I got these at the C Wonder outlet a while back. 

Another favorite option is to wear one of these dresses with my black blazer. My only hesitation is because of my previous comment about needing a waistband for the radio. 

My next option is blue pinstripe dress pants (again, great deal at Jcrew) and my red short sleeve sweater from Forever 21 ages ago. 

I need to invest in some black dress pants because I have two nice dressy tops I could pair with black (Also both from Jcrew, notice a trend hehe)

My last option is a Disney professional outfit for a Spring concierge training day. I wouldn't wear the seersucker in January. 

I am so overwhelmed on which outfit to pick and what to pack! My main advice about Disney look is, if you are hesitant about an outfit..don't wear it!!

I have 49 days left to figure everything out!!!!!!
