Jeans are acceptable according to WDW's dress guidelines for signature restaurant as long as they are not torn or have holes.

We ate at Yachtsman in August for our Wedding meal - so I guess you could say we were all really well dressed, me in the big dress and DH in a Biege Linen Suit and white shirt. However the family at the next table were not, in my eyes, appropriatley dressed for the restaurant. The two boys and the father all had swim shorts on, the father wearing a tee-shirt with surftboards and slogans. One of the boys - about 7 or 8 was wrapped in towels having apparently been dragged in from the pool to have a meal.

shame on the one hand to be out for a posh meal and have your stylish clothes on to have someone next to you turn up in their casuals. However, although I would never go with towel or scruffy clothes I do admit that if this restaurant were in the UK DD and DS would go in smart trousers/shirt/shoes but as we are on a tight 'baggage budget' we wouldn't want to pack trousers for them to wear for two hours. I am a little worried about if deck shoes or trainers would be deemed suitable with dress shorts and polos as I am reluctant to pack two pairs of smart shoes for dinner here on one night. No problem for dd and I as we always change into a dress and sandals in the evening on holidays - just love the excuse to clean up nicely

Deck shoes and/or Trainers are fine also - a step up from the "thongs"!

I'm sorry, but I've lost it! No one would believe how hysterical Sammie's post makes me every time I think of it! I keep picturing eating at Yachtsman, & everyone looking up & seeing someone walk in wearing nothing on the bottom portion of their body except a "thong"!!! woohoo!!!! in the breezy way! Ok, I'll leave everyone alone now & watch the debate - don't think that will be as funny!

thanks that deck shoes are fine - makes life with my two males much easier as for the thongs little bits of Ibiza covering is what it means to me too I will never look at my flip flops in the same way again.

When I lived in Ohio, flip flops were called thongs and they were the cheap rubberish ones we wore to the pool (and no where else).

It wasn't until I moved to Florida that I heard them called flip flops and saw so many more styles than I was accustomed to.

As to how the DDP caused the chaos in Yachtsman, I would guess the poster was implying that when people were paying OOP for signature dining, they would tend to dress a little nicer and either send the kids to the kids club or tell them they had to be on their best behavior. In my opinion, it seems like more people go straight from/to the parks from the signature restaurants treating them like they are any other casual restaurant instead of something special. It's a lot easier to do that when all the restaurants are the same "cost" (i.e., free or prepaid, even if it takes two credits) at the time you're there. I've only eaten at Yachtsman once (it was my mom and I) and we dressed nice for the meal. That was back before the DDP, and it really felt more like a fine dining experience than other Disney restaurants we had visited.
