Melissa Behnken and Her Ample Cleavage Create a Disney California Misadventure

An "elderly" male Disney cast member told a San Diego mother of three children and wife of a U.S. Marine corporal just back from deployment overseas to cover up because she was showing too much cleavage, she has charged.
The thing is, I swear I saw women in far more revealing outfits than Melissa Behnken when I worked at the park or went there as a guest.
She says she spent a lot of time planning what would be her family's first trip to the Anaheim resort shortly after her husband's return to the States.
"This gentleman out of nowhere comes up to me and just says,'You need to pull your top up,'" Behnken told San Diego 10News, the ABC station down there. "I was looking at him like, 'Excuse me? Are you serious?'"
Yep, he was, explaining it's a family park and she was over-exposed. Disney indeed has a policy about showing too much skin. But it's difficult to fathom Behnken's top violated that policy based on the photos she provided her local news team.
"I guess women with large chests are expected to wear turtlenecks their whole lives," said the, ahem, large chested lady.
After complaining to guest relations and Disney's corporate office, Behnken received an apologetic phone call from a Disneyland representative, she said.
Guess we know who won't be volunteering her bra should a Mad Tea Party tea cup go out of commission.
