Another Disney World parkgoer is getting attention on TikTok after saying she broke Disney World's dress code and got a free shirt.

Alyssa Schueller posted a TikTok video on Friday that was filmed in Epcot and has been viewed more than 3 million times.

She first showed herself with the caption "getting escorted to a free shirt bc mine 'isn't appropriate.'" She showed her bikini-style top, which was black with thin straps, and a Disney World employee.

The video then appeared to show an employee filling out a voucher at a gift-shop register with a yellow T-shirt on the counter. Schueller ended the video with a clip of herself wearing the shirt and making a peace sign.

"It's true guys," Schueller wrote across the video, seeming to refer to another popular TikTok video in which someone said Disney World sometimes gives free shirts to people who wear tops that it deems inappropriate.

In a comment on her video, Schueller said she had worn the bikini top to Animal Kingdom and had not been reprimanded.

"Fyi i was at animal kingdom ALL morning without and issue," Schueller wrote. "Went to epcot and this happened. went back to AK and had no issue once again."

"If disney wants to endorse a dress code then they need to do just that," she continued. "But the inconsistency... pls."

Disney World's website says that "proper attire, including shoes and shirts, must be worn at all times," as its theme parks are "casual, family-oriented" environments. It also says the theme park "reserves the right" to deny admission to or remove anyone who chooses not to abide by the dress code.

Speaking with Insider over email, Schueller said she "wasn't aware" of Disney's dress code before visiting, and was "embarrassed" by the overall experience.

"Having a dress code isn't a terrible idea, but I do think Disney World needs to be more consistent on enforcing it," Schueller said. "I went to Animal Kingdom later in the day and again had no issue with what I had on. I also checked the dress code later on out of curiosity and nothing in there mentions ties on clothing."

In May, Amanda DiMeo posted a TikTok video in which she said she got a $75 shirt at Disney World for free after wearing a crop top.

Some people applauded her and said they wanted to try her "free-shirt hack." Others said that doing so could cause problems for people who work at the theme parks.

DiMeo previously told Insider in an email that she didn't know her shirt went against Disney World's dress code, as she'd worn it to the park once before, in January. She also said that the shirt voucher had a $50 limit but that she asked to get the $75 jersey and "the manager approved it for the cashier."

Representatives for Disney World did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
