Rampant boobies to reign at Disneyland!

Disneyland and Walt Disney World will no longer pay dedicated toplessness-checkers to examine the photos snapped of riders and displayed at the end of the ride. Not enough flashers these days, apparently.
Disney confirmed Tuesday that it has reassigned employees at Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure who watched for breast-baring riders because "actual inappropriate behaviors by guests are rare."

Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown says the changes took effect Sunday at Splash Mountain, Tower of Terror, Space Mountain and California Screamin'.

Riders are photographed on the attractions and can then buy souvenir copies. Some have exposed their breasts in hopes that the picture would make it onto a photo preview screen at the ride's exit.

  1. I CANNOT believe you printed this and then did not have the actual photos!!!! At least one. sniff

  2. I like how the two kids behind the lady in the photo are cheering and the two in front are scared (and looking away).

  3. Couldn’t these girls get around the security measure by just flashing the crowd standing around the preview monitors directly? Please?

    (I think I just posted this without signing in, sorry.)

  5. I can’t believe that this was actually a job description, and that I only find out about it after the position no longer exists.


  6. Nice. That picture is almost older than the internet. However, I think the real story is that boobie-checkers are a luxury unsupportable to the shareholders in this economy.

  7. I understand with the economy that this position is expendable. Perhaps they should solict for volunteers?

  8. That picture really is darn near as old as the www; Think I first saw it in 1996 or so.

    Just realized noone even says world wide web any more. Wow.

  9. It was never a separate job; it was just another position that cast members rotated through during their shifts. In WDW, it’s the merchandise CMs who handled it; I don’t know if the same was true at Disneyland. So you’d spend an hour at the computer monitoring the pictures, and then an hour at the register, an hour at the photo booth, and so on.

    I wonder if there will be an increase in obscene photo attempts as word gets out, and they’ll have to reintroduce the position. FWIW, in my experience, the obscene attempts were much more likely to be people flipping off the camera or waggling their tongues between their fingers, or whatever. I never saw anybody try to flash the camera.

  10. @ #13: I thought Boing Boing didn’t censor harmless breasts.

    I was going to say “There’s no such thing as harmful breasts”, but then I remembered the 1976 The Pink Panther Strikes Again, and Peter Sellers’ visit to the Oktoberfest.

    (My Youtube-fu is apparently very weak tonight–I’d otherwise provide a clip.)

  11. @#12 – I saw someone flash during a ride only once during my time at WDW. A group of girls got on, and when right before they hit the second drop, one girl stands up and pulls up her shirt while the girl in the front row snaps a quick pic. It happened so fast, all I could do was laugh. They didn’t get a preview photo, of course.

  12. Free fall, absence of gravity: are there many grandmothers taking advantage of that unique opportunity?

  13. @ #6 Tavie – I’m impressed/surprised/amazed at the number of women who apparently don’t wear bras to the amusement park.

  14. @21 Empirechick – me too – especially in that kind of heat! Plus, some of us would give ourselves black eyes…
