Disney Decides To Let Workers Don Beards

Disneyland employees no longer must choose before rocking a goatee and receiving a paycheck. Disney’s strict theme park employee grooming code has always banned beards — it’s only allowed mustaches since 2000 — but the company is overturning the rule.

According to the AP, facial hair will be able to grow free on Disney employees starting Feb. 3.

That’s not the only way the House of Mouse is relaxing its grip on employee appearance. It’s also introducing casual Fridays for employees who don’t interact with customers. So, you know, if they want to, they can go ahead and wear a Hawaiian shirt and jeans.
