Simply put, the dining plan. Or more accurately, the free dining plan.

I had a friend get turned away at the California Grill because she was wearing jeans that had rips in them. They weren't trashy jeans that had rips by her butt cheeks or anything. They were actually designer jeans that had a few rips. They were sold that way. I found it kind of funny because I'm sure she spent lots if money on the jeans.

Maybe I'm odd, but I generally don't worry about what strangers are wearing. I make sure my boyfriend and myself look presentable, but it's not my job to concern myself with what others are wearing. If they are not disruptive, vulgar, etc, I don't care what they are wearing.

A lot of Disney rules are there for the majority who will follow them even though they aren't enforced for the minority that break them. As far as I can tell, the dress code at the signature restaurants (with the exception of V&A) is one of those. And with the CC guarantee I don't see that changing - people getting turned away for coming to dinner in park attire and then charged for it would be a guest relations mess that Disney doesn't want to deal with.

Would be nice if each deluxe resort had a dress code that was enforced.

I'm glad that I can go eat in what I've worn all day if in the same park but I love & prefer to go back shower, put my face on, do my hair & don the glad rags.
Our first visit to DW next yr & I don't think we'll get time to do that most nights but its in my plan to dress up of I can find the time!

They do enforce it...we were at Jiko and a gentleman came in with a tank top on (they had reservations) and the host told the couple they could not be seated with a tank top on, they told him to go to his room to change and if he wasnt staying at the AKL to go to the gift shop and buy a tee shirt.

I remember reading a post from someone else on this board who said that they were turned away from California Grill because her elementary school-aged daughter was wearing a denim skirt with a frayed fringe. The skirt was sold that way, but they still said it violated their "torn clothing" policy.

I remember reading your post about this too! Wasn't there further issue in that he wasn't told that the tank top would be allowed when he checked in, but was told he would have to change 20 minutes later when they were about to be seated?

I went to BOGR in sweatpants.

(I had completely forgotten I was wearing them. Thought I was wearing jeans. It had been a LONG day.)

We eat at CG every trip and make a point to change and look nice for our "signature" dining experience. If we have our kids with us they adhere to the code as well. I don't think basketball shorts are "dressy" shorts at all. And call me old fashioned, even though I'm not old, but men should never wear a hat indoors, most certainly not at the table.

Disnut8:

Actually, what are or aren't "dress shorts" dosen't really matter.

No other kinds or styles of shorts are on the "not permitted" list.

Which is why you'll see all kinds of folks in "cargo" style shorts, among others.

Didn't realize there was a no hat rule but than again I didn't look at the dress code yet. Now I just need an excuse for him to get a nice hair cut so I don't spoil the surprise.
I generally do wear jeans in the parks all day . Mostly as I'm used/accustomed to jeans, but our local region is also one where you're very likely to find most Business Casual dress codes allowing for jeans. Again not torn/etc.

In the same manner that if I prefer people to use "please" and "thank you" when going through their lives. No, it's not an earth-shaking issue to be sure.

It's clearly stated what the dress code is. If you do not want to abide by the dress requirements, eat at one of the hundred other establishments Disney offers.

Truly, it is as simple as that.

( Edit : and by 'you', I mean in a general sense, not a particular poster in this thread. )

My goodness, the DDP is not responsible for every issue that occurs in Disney restaurants. I have been reading about the dress code violations for years.

I always try to dress decently for dinner but I do that for me. I don't understand why others are concerned about clothing that they are not wearing.

Years ago the CG was The Top of the World and there was a real dress code and it was enforced. That was then. Times have changed, the restaurant is not the same and the code is relaxed. I liked having that evening to get dressed up but I that was when I was there without my kids. No way would I pack suits, dressy dresses and dress shoes for a family trip to Disney today.
