I wouldn't be surprised after all the bad publicity they got of those guys coming and sexually assaulting girls in the park that they will tighten their rules.

Yes lets boycott them and send them mean e-mails!

How dare they give you a full refund, the injustice of it.  You are my hero!  Just because someone didn't want to look at your ass, who are they to ask you to cover-up even if it's stated in thier policies, those phenatical un-educated christians.  And then when you didn't have anything else to wear, they give you a full refund?  I'm thinking lawsuit!

Get a grip what did they do to warrant boycotting?  They asked you to cover up and when you said you didn't have anything to cover up with they refunded your money.  Its not like they arrested you for having a bad looking ass...  I'd also say that if there was someone topless, when you left, they most likely went and told her to cover up shortly after you left...  But we'll never know since you seemed to refuse to cover up like requested and left.

Oh well, I guess its not just me that was singled out.  I suspect eimeo is correct; the bad publicity is probably a big factor in the change of policy.  I thought about asking for a refund, but really wanted to visit the park and didn't have anything else to do that day so I stayed.  I am glad to hear they willingly gave a refund.  I did not see anyone else topless or in a thong the entire day.  As I indicated before I did email Wet n Wild about my incident and, 2 weeks or so later have not received any reply.  I wish I had gone there 2 or 3 years ago, as everybody feels that would have been better.  I have always wanted to do a water park in a thong; maybe some day, some where  ...

One of my girlfriends just got back from a week at Disney World and said she could not find any speedos at the water park gift shops.  We were going to get matching Mickey Mouse speedos for our husbands, the four of us are going on a cruise in February.   Maybe it was a temporary thing, I guess we missed it. :-(

I may be going to Wet N Wild in Orlando this summer. Are men and women still allowed to wear thongs there or do the lifeguards and security personnel make people wear other swimwear? I have read that the park has more security now than it did years ago. I am uncomfortable with wearing nothing but a thong and being hassled by security or worse, having a security person walk through the locker room while people are changing or showering. Very awkward if that happens.

Good Luck!  If you read the previous posts in this section (mine and others) it would appear that men may have a problem.  Perhaps women are still ok; hard to say.  But things like this do change unpredicably from month to month, so hopefully you will luck out.  I suspect that your experience will depend on lots of factors, like how revealing your thong is, but also it may also depend on how fit you look, how confidently you wear it, how crowded the park is, the mood of the security people that day, the phase of the moon, or whatever.  Be sure to let us all know how it goes.

Re:Orlando's waterparks ( Wet-n-Wild, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, etc.)

Here is my advice regarding all these parks:  I believe with all the European tourists, a speedo should be fine for anyone at any swimming facility in the USA, unless it is specifically forbidden.  Even in the redneck culture of north Florida, it's not completely unheard of.  If they throw you out for wearing a plain old speedo, then they only make themselves look like hypocrites or fools, since consistency would require the same rules for men and women and I seriously doubt they will throw out a woman for wearing bikini or regular one-piece swimsuit.  Even the YMCA pools allow men to wear speedos and women to wear skimpy 2-piece, but not thongs.  The only difference between them and other places is they post signs all over their air-conditions gyms explicity stating that swimwear is not permitted in these areas and you must cover up with a towel, etc. 

For thongs, whether you're male or female, I would take the opposite approach.  By that, I mean you should assume they are prohibited by all these "family oriented" parks, unless they say otherwise.  I tend to avoid those things like the plague anyway, so I don't care very much what their policy is.  If you find a park with a reputation for being liberal and tolerant, then by all means, tell us about it here.  If not, then the park is of no interest to all of us rank-and-file group members.

You look great eimeo, anyone who would be offended by that is probably just jealous.  

I always wear speedos at Typhoon Lagoon / Blizzard Beach and some times it seems like I'm the only one, or sometimes there's lots of South American or European tourists and I blend in.  Either way, I go down the slides a lot faster than the guys in big soggy dork shorts so I don't care.

Unfortunately we dont have your courage Eimeo.  We just got back from Orlando (a week after you were there).  We thought the atmosphere was so "family" oriented that neither michelle or I wore any micro suits.  Michelle wore a two piece bikini (similar to the one you put on a a cover up at TL) and I wore regular swim trunks.  Sometimes I guess you just have to go with the flow

eimeo:  you proved my point perfectly.  The bottom line here is it's Disney, and they sell themselves as family oriented.  Even though you have family and are a WW model, apparently, that's not the image that Disney wants to sell.  If it had been a guy, even a smooth shaven bodybuilder type, he would not have lasted 6 hours as you did before being expelled.  He would have been booted out in seconds.  The fact that they barred even you from wearing a thong is proof of their committment to their policy.  I would say they that beforehand, there were probably several exchanges between lowest ranks of employees and management.  At the end of the day, it would have gone to someone of fairly high rank who made the decision to make no exceptions.

I agree with nospam completely.  I think women MAY be able to get away with a thong, as eimeo discovered, but men are definitely dead meat.  I think the principal reason they seem to have this crazy "thongs are ok, but we may ask you to cover up" policy is that it allows them to discriminate at will.  If they openly said that "women were ok, but men were not", they would probably risk a lawsuit.  This way they get to have their cake and eat it too.  This annoys me big-time, as I do enjoy water parks, but I am not sure if anything can be done about it.  I would much prefer them to say either "thongs are allowed - period" or "thongs are not allowed - period".  That way I would know ahead of time where to go and where to not go before spending any money.  Dream on, I know!

I thought something was weird about that too DavyJ.   I figure if you last 6 hours in a thong, you are home free.  The fact that someone came up 6 hours later and asked her to cover up strikes me as odd.  Did someone complain?  To me, either thongs are ok ...or their not.  I agree however...the "randomness" of the committment is probably geared towards keeping creepy men from wearing micro suits.  Even though I am in excellent shape, i guarantee you I would not last 6 hours in my muscleskins at Typhoon Lagoon!!

The "unless someone complains" or "managers reserve the right to ask anyone to leave at any time" rule is just plain unfair when frequently applied towards a group of people, but not always applied the same way.  One bar I know of does not permit men with extreme body piercing (facial) or facial tatoos to drink there.  No written rules, no reason other than that their customers do not like that look (which probably means the management does not like that look).  I personnally do not care for some of the extreme piercings or tattoos, but that is my opinion.  I know a man who had been turned away at this bar for having those spools in his earloabes with about a 1/2 inch holes.  I also have gone here with a friend who has probably 10 piercings and some "body art" which reaches onto her face, and who has not been ask to leave.  I have been to places where such a rule is not enforced and have seen some pretty scarry men, but they have kept to themselves and not caused any trouble.  Do I feel any safer at the bar with the rules -- probably not. 

It is the same thing as thongers at a public venue not being able to thong when there are no specific rules about thongs being not permitted.  Is the place any less fun for families or other patrons, or any safer when thongers are sent hiking?  Probably not.  Keep the rules about "inappropriate swimwear" or whatever, but only enforce them when a pervert exposes him/herself.  Better yet, get the local police involved, get evidence, and put those who expose themselves in jail.  Publish a rule about thongs if they are inappropriate, but make sure it does not discriminate against men or women, and make sure to define exactly what a thong is.  I have seen places use a reference to local or state laws, such as "swimwear which is legal at Indiana State parks will be permitted.  As tastes change, and State park rules are changed, it is automatically changed at the private establishment.  At least everyone who reads the rules can find out what is or is not permitted.

A case was made that a thonger didn't understand why he/she couldn't thong after staying 6 hours without incidences.  I agree that in a busy location, this would seem an acceptable defense.  But I also know that similar logic is used by people who are purposefully trying to get around the law.  A person skinny dipping and laying out in the buff in a more private area of a public beach may use this type defense "I've been doing it all the time, and nobody complained before" or whatever.  If there is an actual rule or law that is being violated, then the length of time the rule have been violated does not seem to be a defense.  If there is no rule, and the person has only been discovered after 6 hours, there might be some logic in requesting the person to cover up.  But if the person is in a busy park, has been seen for 6 hours by hundreds or even thousands of people, and has been approached by or seen by numberous park enployees who did not take exception to what they were or were not wearing, then it would seem the park does not have a logical leg to stand on.  Still, the park probably has the "we have the right to ask anyone to leave at anytime" burried into their rules, and by paying to go in, you accept their rules, you wouldn't have a leg to stand on in court.  Even if women thongers were not ask to leave and men were, you would have to present a pretty good case that it was sexual discrimination the park was using, and not some other factor.

I think the idea of wanting to know the absolute rule is a bit silly. There probably is no absolute rule, it is is entirely up to the property owner, who can be as flexible as they like, when they like and how they like.
The rule of thumb is go and thong if you wish but be GRACIOUS if the host, property owner or event management ask you to cover up.
Over time there may or may not be more people thonging.  If more do, and they look good in their thongs, this will encourage to be brave enough to thong too. 
Maybe, over time, the community will get less paranoid, or the thongers will be less paranoid about the occasional casual request to cover up a bit. Be gracious and friendly if asked to cover up. You want the person to walk away thinking, "That was a really nice person and they looked good in a thong, it was a shame to have to ask them to cover up".

JM_Runs is right.  Wear the thong, be gracious if told to stop.  I previously wrote about wearing a g-string to swim laps at the YWCA and was "ordered" to stop.  OK, I did.  Thereafter, I wore skimpy bikinis and everyone seemed happy.I went to a Holiday Inn in Beaumont, Texas over a weekend.  I did not know the place, figured the town to be aghast at thongs back then--early '80s I think.  I put on my Gazelle Blue thong--about the same as the Speedo Thongs in design--walked out to the pool in the afternoon, which fronted the bar and restaurant and was fairly crowded.  Swam some, sat on the side of the pool and a young woman pointed me out to her husband (pointed out the thong probably) favorably.  I sat by the pool for awhile and left.  Nothing was said.  Another time, I wore the same thong--a great thong, I finally wore it out--in a small town motel.  Walked around the place to the pool.  Was spotted at every turn, looked upon favorably as far as I could tell. Enjoyed it.  Not a word was said.  JM-Runs is right, don't ask try it out, comply graciously with their wishes, if any.  Thongs are fun, comfortable, and most of all practical.  Everyone should wear them.  They'll catch on in time.

There are some places where it is not even worth trying or asking:  these places would include the properties of Disney and their imitators and all YMCA's and YWCA's.  Minimum for those places is a basic speedo.  But, there is never a need to ask if a speedo is OK, just make sure it fits.  Basic speedo is standard swimwear.  If you start asking is it OK, you set a bad precedent.  If a man is wearing a speedo and women wearing bikinis and the management asks the man to change or leave, they only make themselves look bad, so they should leave you alone as long as you don't give them other reasons to run you off.

The park in most cases can't give a firm rule because then they would have to check on everyone entering the park.  If they say thongs are fine then someone shows up with a g string do they say no?  Is 2.5 inches of butt coverage ok but 2.25 quarter not? Is the same suit on two different people going to cause less or more coverage where one is fine but the other is not? If a woman wears a "regular bikini" and rides up is someone going to have to tell her to change? The park likely doesn't care as long as no one (guest) complains and thus their rule. So be gracious in your gear and you likely have no complaints.

 I'm back from Disney. 

Typhoon was closed for referbishing/annual maintainance.  So we went to Blizzard Beach.

Saw lots of Rios but no thongs.  So boy shorts too.  I've noticed that the Rios are getting smaller so much so that they could almost be classified as thongs.  They are very small too.  I like them.  Saw probably a dozen Rios, two boy shorts, and a bunch of Brazilian (not full coverage, but about half).

I see that the trend is that more and more of the smaller bikinis are being worn.  I hope it continues.

Went to Wet N' Wild on Saturday. No thongs and no rios in sight on either men or women. There were a couple of speedos on men, myself included, around the wave pool area. However I did wear a g-string on the sunning deck for a couple hours to get a tan. I was all alone up there. A guard passed by a couple times but didn't say anything. The park was fairly empty.

I visited Blizzard Beach last week and I have never seen so many thongs and rios in one place, not even South Beach.  Disney World used to attract a lot of tour groups from Brazil in the month of July, but after 9/11 that tourism was significantly reduced. However, this year, Disney proudly announced a record number of tourists from Brazil will be visiting this summer.

So I guess the stereotype about Brazilian women wearing skimpy swimsuits is somewhat true.  I would estimate that about half of the guests at Blizzard Beach were wearing thongs or rios, although the vast majority of those were skimpy rio bikinis.  I saw no g-strings.  There were no men in thongs but at least there were a decent number of men in speedos (although these seemed to be European.)

I find it significant that these tourists in their thongs and rios did not sport supermodel bodies. They were average, healthy looking women who just seemed so comfortable in their skin and did not make a big deal about what they were wearing.  I find that very refreshing.  But while most women were not fitness models, they also were not overweight or obese.  In stark contrast to this were the swimsuits worn at my hotel pool - a Disney timeshare resort.  These were predominantly American women, a large percentage of which were overweight, and almost all wore very conservative suits.  My wife, who is struggling with weight herself, felt much more comfortable amongst the Brazilian tourists then she did amongst the conservative Americans.

I was glad to be reminded that not all cultures are so uptight about their bodies as ours, yet at the same time manage to maintain healthy weights.

 oc_thong_guy,

I was at Blizzard beach about two weeks ago.  I too concur with you about the types of swimwear there.  Lots, and I mean maybe 60% of the ladies there wore rios.  There were a good number of thongs too.  I'd say at least 20.  The ladies didn't care a bit and walked around confident like they owned the place. 

Like you said, they were supermodel types, but all were average, in good shape.

I like the change.  We will be going back in Sept., I hope the trend continues.

shaved_thong_lover ,

I don't know about any official policies, but the staff did not seem at all concerned.  The only time the staff spoke with a lady in a thong is when she removed her top and tried to layout right in front of the wave pool.  They informed her the policy does not allow topless sunbathing (but first they had to find a translator!).  They didn't say anything about her or anyone else's thong bottom.

BaltoBob,

No, I left all my thongs at home.  It never occurred to me to bring them to WDW.  But I wouldn't feel comfortable thonging there anyway. I did wear a rio a couple of times to the hotel pool though.

 I was at Blizzard Beach a few weeks ago. 

I was surprised at how many thongs and Rios I saw there.  There were so many ladies in thongs, that at one point, I could see two ladies in the line for Teamboat Springs that were wearing them.  Tere were thongs everywhere we looked!   It is my 5 yr old daughter's favorite ride at BB.  So, we rode it about 8 times that day.  Twice, there was a thonged lady about two or three people away from us.  Both of these times, there was some kind of delay and we had to stand in line for about 15 minutes in one spot.  The first time, the girl put a towel around her waist after about 10 minutes.  The second, couldn't have cared at all and proudly stood in line with her thong clearly visible to anyone that looked.

Every time I go, it seems like there are more thongs and rios than the last time.  I like this trend!!!

I was curious about what was sold in their gift shop so I went in there to look around.  There, on the racks were very small bikini bottoms.  Not thong, but small Rios.  The front gave as much coverage as the backs did.  Both were around 2" to 3" wide at that most.  They tapered to a slightly wider strip toward the wast bands but it still didn't cover much.  Its refreshing to me to see a place like Disney that actually sells minimal swimwear like that at their resorts.  Its almost like they are encouraging people to wear them.  As a side note, while I was in there shopping, a girl was wearing a short coverup that stopped at her belly and she was wearing a thong.  She looked very sexy.  No one batted an eye at her.

The trend has been that visitors from south america were the one wearing thongs, but, I did see more than a few ladies that were not from South America.  They were probably from Europe. 

Soap-box time.  For those people that think things and minimal swimwear are wrong or "dirty" need to only look at Disney's water parks.  It works well for them there.  Not once did I feel like the world was going to end because a few butt cheeks were exposed!!
