Hijab means “no job” at Disney for Moroccan native

Aicha Baha, a 32-year-old Moroccan native, worked two jobs at Walt Disney World, as a part-time bellhop and a full-time sales clerk at the Caribbean Beach Resort. While on maternity leave in 2002, her adherence to her Muslim faith grew and she began wearing a hijab, a traditional Muslim head scarf worn as a sign of modesty. When she returned from maternity leave, Disney told her that the hijab did not conform to Disney's dress code, and she was told that she could not wear it in an onstage position. She was offered a backstage position out of public view, but when she refused, she was terminated.

The sales clerk position was actually through The Pearl Factory, which contracts with Disney to run franchised gift shops in the resorts. The Pearl Factory has an agreement with Disney that all employees in its shops must conform to the Disney dress code. The Pearl Factory transferred Baha to a shop in the Old Town attraction on Route 192. At the new location, her commissions dropped to less than 10 percent of what she was making at Disney, so she quit.

Disney policy states that only hats and visors distributed by the costuming department as part of a costume are allowed for cast members working onstage. Baha has filed a civil-rights lawsuit against Disney in Federal court in Orlando, alleging that allowing her to wear the hijab would not impose an undue hardship upon Disney.

New Princess merchandise opportunity, er… experience

Following a successful test last fall, Walt Disney World has decided to officially introduce its new “My Disney Girl's Perfectly Princess Tea Party” beginning Thursday, June 10.

Princesses can dress up for the event, which runs every Thursday through Monday from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the Garden View Lounge at the Grand Floridian Resort. For a mere $200, one child (age 3-11) and one adult ($65 for an additional adult and $135 for an additional child), little princesses will get the royal treatment.

The package includes tea for two with princess cakes, a personal meet-and-greet with Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) and (for princesses age 3-11) a tiara, a silver Princess link bracelet, a rose, a special princess scrapbook page, a "Best Friend" certificate, and—the big prize—a “My Disney Girl” collectible doll dressed in a matching Princess Aurora gown plus accessories.

The party is hosted by “Rose Petal,” a magical rose from Aurora's garden that has come to life, and who leads storytelling, sing-alongs, and a princess parade.

The Walt Disney World Dining line will begin accepting reservations this Wednesday.

Happy Birthday, Tufani!

Tufani, the first elephant born at Disney's Animal Kingdom, celebrated his first birthday on Saturday. There have been only 13 African elephant births in North American institutions since 1983, and Tufani is one of only five that survived. Tufani, who weighed 296 pounds at birth, now weighs 834 pounds and has grown from 36 inches in height to 52 inches. While he still nurses from his mother, his diet has grown to include more solid foods, including grain, hay, grass, apples, carrots and yams. He seems to have energized the herd of elephants, as many have remarked that the elephants seem much more lively with the little elephant running around and having fun.

Tufani will have to share all of that attention and admiration soon, though. Another of the elephants is pregnant and due to give birth in July. Time will tell if the next baby elephant will survive, as well.

Walt Disney World awards $600,000 to 45 charities

Last Tuesday at the Magic Kingdom, 45 charities received a combined $600,000 through Disney's Helping Kids Shine Grants program. Shepherd's Hope, which gives free medical care to low-income, uninsured children and families, and the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida received the top awards, $50,000 grants named for two Disney executives who were known for being influential in community giving. Twelve other recipients received over $15,000. The other 31 recipients received awards of varying amounts.

E-Ride Night update

Last week we reported (link) that the attraction lineup for E-Ride Nights would be the same as last year, but with the subtraction of the ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter. It seems that that lineup has been shuffled. Fantasyland, previously closed off during E-Ride Nights, is now open for business. The new list of E-Ride attractions is as follows:

  • Space Mountain
  • Splash Mountain
  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  • Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
  • The Haunted Mansion
  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
  • Mickey's PhilharMagic
  • Peter Pan's Flight

Rides that have been removed from last year's list, aside from the now-closed Alien Encounter, are: Country Bear Jamboree, Tomorrowland Transit Authority and Astro Orbiter. Pirates of the Caribbean, which would run as a back-up attraction during rehabs of other E-Ride attractions, is not planned to run this year. It looks like eight will be the new number of open attractions.


The Flower and Garden Festival marketplace has been very busy throughout the event. Photo by Brian Bennett.

Ears to the Ground

…Reportedly, the "it's a small world" rehab is the beginning of a campaign to restore and enhance all of the "classic" attractions. Next up is rumored to be Pirates of the Caribbean.

…Disney's "Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue" dinner show will celebrate its 30th anniversary on June 14.

…The Evening Extra Magic Hour pilot has completed its two-week trial period, and Disney honchos will be reviewing guest feedback to determine whether or not this feature will become a permanent fixture.

…Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa officially opens Thursday, though guests have been staying there since last Monday.

…Tom Sawyer Island's rehab has been pushed back a couple of months. It now will be closed from Sunday, July 25 through Saturday, Sept. 25.

…The Hong Kong Disneyland Preview Center featuring "an enormous and intricate scale model and never-before-seen renderings" announced as part of Disney's Golden Celebration for next year will be located in the China pavilion in World Showcase.

…We're hearing that the Kusafiri Bakery adjacent to the Tusker House Restaurant at Animal Kingdom will receive a redesign over the summer.

…A new Magic Kingdom DVD has been released and is available in the theme parks, at Downtown Disney, and via mail order. "Where Magic Lives - Magic Kingdom," shot last year, includes footage of most park attractions and sells for $19.95.

…We've heard that the FriendShip boat docks will be undergoing refurbishment again this summer. The boats will continue to run, but they will be running a circle route between the three open docks while a fourth is being refurbished. One dock will be refurbished at a time. The boats will resume their two-route, four-dock operation when the refurbishment is complete.

…Look for the Fastpass distribution area for Kilimanjaro Safaris at the Animal Kingdom to be relocated in early June to improve guest flow.
