The standard dress code for Disney is theme park casual. Meaning that you can ear jeans, shorts, tank tops, strapless tops, sandals and flip flops. Clothing that isn’t permitted:
- Clothing that contains offensive language
- Clothing that is offensive (i.e. transparent)
- Clothing that is excessively torn
- String bikini tops and bikini bottoms
- Costumes (children under the age of 10 and select special events are exempt)
For those dining at quick service and most table service restaurants, the dress code is what you can wear to the theme parks. There are a few exceptions to the rule.
The dress code at Signature Dining restaurant is “business casual”.
Men: Khakis, slacks, jeans, dress shorts, collared shirts. Sport coats are optional.
Ladies: Capris, skirts, dresses, jeans, dress shorts.
Not permitted: Tank tops, swimwear, hats for gentleman, cut offs, or torn clothing. While T-shirts are now allowed, the policy remains that T-shirts with offensive language or graphics are not acceptable.
Signature Dining restaurants include Artist Point at Wilderness Lodge, California Grill at Contemporary Resort, Citricos at Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Flying Fish at BoardWalk Resort, Fulton’s Crab House at Downtown Disney, Il Mulino New York Trattoria at Walt Disney World Swan Resort, Jiko – The Cooking Place at Animal Kingdom Lodge, Narcoossee’s at Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Portobello at Downtown Disney, Shula’s Steak House at Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort, Wolfgang Puck’s Dining Room at Downtown Disney and Yachtsman Steakhouse at Yacht Club.
More often than not the dress code is not strictly enforced. As long as you are presentable most restaurants will seat you. There have been occasions where restaurants have refused to seat but have provided guests with the proper shirt.
Signature dining locations in the parks (Hollywood Brown Derby, Le Cellier Steakhouse and Monsieur Paul) do not have a dress code other than standard park attire.
Victoria & Albert’s
The strictest dress code is Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.
There dress code is:
Men: Dinner jackets with dress pants/slacks and shoes. Ties are optional (Please no jeans, shorts, sandals, flip-flops, or tennis shoes)
Ladies: Cocktail dress, dressy pant suit, skirt/blouse or nice dress. (Please no jeans, shorts, capri pants, sandals, flip-flops or tennis shoes)
You’ll often see men wearing suits and most often with a tie. Women often were a pant or skirt suit, or cocktail dress. The dress code here is strictly enforced so you will not see guests wearing jeans and t-shirts.
The dress code is standard theme park attire. However, you will often see young girls wearing princess costumes. On occasion you’ll see young boys in costumes, typically pirates. Children under the age of 10 are permitted to wear costumes. Guests age 10 and older are not allowed to wear costumes except during special events (Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Star Wars Weekends).
