Disneyland Lifts Beard Ban

Good news for the genie, but too bad for the seven dwarfs. Disneyland has lifted its 55-year ban on beards—so long as they're shorter than a quarter of an inch. The theme park has a notoriously strict dress code, and the rules still forbid visible tattoos, body piercings, and “extreme” hairstyles. Until 2010, women couldn’t wear sleeveless tops and had to wear pantyhose with skirts. “While we are careful to maintain our heritage and the integrity of our brand, a recent review of our guidelines led to a decision that an update was appropriate at this time,” said a spokeswoman for the park. Soul patches are still banned.
