If you’re going to break the rules, at least do it right.
A woman known as Heleni on TikTok is going viral for trying out the “hack” she learned on the app that suggests wearing an “inappropriate” top to Disney World will result in the park giving you a free T-shirt.
The video, which has been viewed 6.4 million times since it was posted on Oct. 17, starts with Heleni in the parking lot, removing her cropped black tank top to reveal a tiny triangle string bikini top.
“Trying the TikTok hack for a free shirt at Disney World Orlando,” she wrote on the clip, before making her way to the entrance gate.
To her excitement, park employees — called cast members — stopped her but Heleni revealed they ultimately “forced” her to buy a shirt to cover up.
“Debunked!” she declared the “hack.”
According to the park’s FAQs on what to wear for a day at Disney, “clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment,” could result in being denied entry to the mouse house.
Heleni’s attempt received hundreds of comments, many of which suggest that the park used to hand out free memorabilia to rule-bending attendees, but stopped when news of the handouts became popular on TikTok.
Heleni purposely wore a bikini top she knew was against Disney World’s dress code in hopes that the park would give her a free t-shirt.
She said employees tried to “force” her to buy a T-shirt instead of giving her a free one.
“Cast member here. Doesn’t work anymore. It got too popular online and everyone was doing it,” an alleged Disney worker commented.
But others said Heleni didn’t do it correctly.
“You have to be inside the park 😭 not outside,” another commenter advised.
“My dumbass,” Heleni replied.
The Post has reached out to Heleni and Disney for comment.
Disney attendees have been all kinds of creative lately when it comes to saving money at the park. Last month, a “shameless” woman went viral for disguising an elementary school-age child as a baby to avoid paying the sky-high admission prices at the Orlando park.
