As stated previously in this thread, footwear is not even addressed in the dress code policy. Flip flops ARE allowed.

I think there was a point several years ago when flip flops and athletic shoes were mentioned, but everything about footwear was taken out when the dress code was relaxed and t-shirts were allowed.

Trust me. I read the dress code to my guests several times a day. There is nothing about foot wear in it.

California Grill requires collared shirts. It can be a short sleeved button down, or a polo style, but not the kind normally called a t-shirt (Hanes or whatnot)

I disagree on collared shirts (although I wish you were right). Right from the WDW website for California Grill. It says "may" and not "must" regarding collared shirts. Shown below.


At this signature dining experience, Guests are asked to adhere to the dress code.

Men may wear khakis, slacks, jeans or dress shorts and collared shirts. Sport coats are optional.

Women may wear Capri pants, skirts, dresses, jeans or dress shorts.

Not permitted are tank tops, swimsuits, swimsuit cover-ups, hats for gentlemen, cut-offs, torn clothing and t-shirts with offensive language and/or graphics.

I think we would need to consult a grammar maven. Here's the text again:

The two lists support the primary statement that guests must follow a dress code.

In the same way someone asking, "What is there to eat?" might be told, "You may have the chicken or the fish." Right, the person may choose either of those things and because it is an offer (may) instead of a command (must) the person may choose nothing at all. But that person does not get to decide that he would rather be served steak.

When someone gives you a list of things you are permitted to wear, that's your list. Any information given after that list is ancillary and included to guide the choice or to address troublesome misscommunications.

Hear hear! Not to be mean, but when/if you pay for a Signature dining like that, it's nice to sort of 'step out' of the casual dining experience. Like choosing between McDonald's or Don Shula's steakhouse- pretty sure McD's doesn't care WHAT you wear (or in some places, if you wear...) but Shula's carries a dress code, and it helps with the atmosphere when you go to dine. Makes you feel spiffy!

Guests are ASKED to adhere to the dress "code"--they are not REQUIRED to adhere to it except for the very few "not permitted" items. T-shirts are very clearly permitted unless they are deemed "offensive" in some way. If you decide not to follow the suggested guidelines, (like wearing cargo shorts instead of "dress shorts") you are quite free to do so. The only items you CANNOT wear are already listed.

Disney did attempt to "get tough" with the dress code a few years back, but found that a large# of folks were coming from (or going to) the parks and had no time or inclination to take the valuable time to get all dressed up for dinner. They lost a fair amount of business "getting tough" and then went with the policy we see now.

AliceandAriel: The dress code at Shulas is exactly the same as we are discussing here--shorts and t-shirts are acceptable attire.

Of course Disney can "get tough" yet again, but I suspect the end result will be the same. And to add what the "trend" is, the Disney Cruise line has changed it's policy to now allow shorts in their TS restaurants---

If a person have good dressing sense, then I don't think then fashion is expensive. The good designs are also available that must fit into our budget.

California Grill doesn't require collared shirts. I've seen plenty of men wearing tee shirts in there. Unless they've just decided to start. I haven't been there since December.

I think the list is pretty clear. "May wear" is not the same as "must not wear." They won't turn you away for a tee shirt (unless it's offensive - I guess that means unless it's got an inappropriate graphic or slogan on it, or someone else complains about it) but they will for torn clothes. They would just prefer that you wear a collar, not require it.

Exactly--the "code" is what they suggest you wear--what they would like you to wear.

IF you don't follow the suggestions, there is that short list of what you can't wear.
