Disney fans are fuming after more provocative images are shared online about what is going on at Disney theme parks.
The newest images were posted by the X account Libs of Tik Tok who shared images passed onto her by a person who attended the theme park.
“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.”

Social media users expressed their feelings at the images.
“Imagine paying all that money only to find drag princesses at Disney World,” one account posted.
“Total degeneracy,” a second agreed.
One user claimed to have worked at the theme parks and gave a personal account of the way things used to be.
“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.”
In 2021, Disney Parks undated their uniform code to let employees were gendered clothing of their preference.
“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.”
“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.”
Recently, Iger held a phone call with shareholders informing them that all new content is basically going through his office and is going to be gone through with a fine tooth comb. It will be interesting to see if Iger makes any changes at the parks in the future.
