Disneyland OKs headscarf for Muslim employee


ReligionNewsBlog.com • Tuesday September 28, 2010

A Muslim woman who said Disneyland wouldn’t let her wear a religious headscarf on her job as a vacation planner or ticket seller – the second such complaint in recent weeks – has reached an agreement with the Southern California theme park and is now wearing a Disney-provided blue scarf and beret-style hat to work.

The park worked with Abdallah to design a covering to match her costume and meet her religious needs, Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown said. She’s been wearing a blue scarf topped with a beret since early this month.

“Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has a long history of accommodating a variety of religious requests from cast members of all faiths — with more than 200 accommodations made over the last three years and this instance was no different,” Brown said in a statement.

However, the woman in question is not Imane Boudlal, the hostess at Storyteller’s Cafe in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel, who was part of a media dust-up last month after she refused management’s offer to either remove her hijab or take a job working out of public view.
