The Disney Policy for QSFB Roles:
In order to maintain a safe and healthy environment and comply with State-mandated regulatory food standards, all Cast Members working in Food & Beverage and Merchandise positions that prepares and/or serves food and beverages are required to abide by the Food & Beverage Nail and Jewelry Policy:
* Keep fingernails trimmed and filed (not extended beyond the tip of the finger, see Figure #1 above.)
* Not wear fingernail polish and/or artificial nails
* Not wear jewelry on arms or hands, including wristwatches and medical information jewelry. Acceptable options for medical jewelry include necklaces and ankle bracelets.
- Rings: The jewelry exception is a plain (commitment) ring, without stones, raised designs or jagged edges. Wedding bands without stones are acceptable. Only 1 ring allowed.
Tattoos: If you have a tattoo below the elbow, make-up may not be worn to cover the tattoo since it can potentially contaminate food, equipment, utensils or unwrapped single-service articles. Furthermore, the Food Code requires that food employees shall wash their hands and exposed portions of their arms immediately before engaging in food preparation including working with exposed food, clean equipment and utensils, and unwrapped single-service articles and other times.
Additionally, from an on-stage appearance perspective, if the tattoo is above the elbow, a Company authorized costume/shirt or opaque makeup (for small tattoos) may be worn to conceal the tattoo. Tattoos on other exposed portions of the body can be covered with the costume or, for small tattoos, opaque makeup, provided on-stage appearance guidelines are followed.
Female cast members in non-QSFB roles may wear neutral colored nail polish at work:
Male cast members may not wear nail polish at work, including clear nail polish.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
