It's no secret that Disneyland merchandise is two things: expensive and highly-sought after.
That's why one woman decided to hatch a plan to bag herself a free Disney t-shirt by wearing a tiny bikini to one of their parks.
This is because the park's FAQs state that guests cannot wear 'clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment.'
Taking to TikTok to show how it gloriously backfired, the woman filmed herself taking off her shirt outside Disney then walking into the park in a small bikini.
The video was overlayed with the caption: "Trying the tiktok hack for a free shirt at Disney World Orlando."
The woman revealed that while she was stopped in the line because of what she was wearing, she wasn't given a free shirt to cover up with.
"Tried to force us to buy one," she wrote, then said of the 'hack': "DEBUNKED."
Needless to say, the TikTok went far from unnoticed, and at the time of writing, it has been viewed over 8.4 million times.
Reacting to the video, an alleged Disney employee explained that the parks stopped handing out free t-shirts because too many people were deliberately dressing down to get them.
They wrote: "Cast member here. Doesn’t work anymore. It got too popular online and everyone was doing it."
A second viewer added: "They used to give one for free, but then everyone found out on tiktok and abused the system so they make you buy one now [sic]."
"How about first get into the park," suggested a third while a fourth wrote: "U made it way too obvious."
Speculating on when the parks stopped giving out free shirts, a fourth wrote: "it has been debunked for awhile. I think they stopped so I'm doing that 3 months ago [sic]."
A fifth revealed: "In like 1980 my dad wore a shirt with Micky smoking that zaza so they gave him a shirt."
However, it turns out that it's not just shirts that people have gotten for free at Disney.
"They do that sometimes," wrote a sixth viewer. "I had flip flops and lost one they gave me free ones."
Meanwhile, a seventh said that t-shirts should be included in the entry price.
"They should be giving away tshirts at the door for the prices they charge," they wrote.
