Disneyland, the renowned theme park in the Californian city of Anaheim, has allowed a Muslim employee to wear a specially designed headscarf in a compromise after initially prohibiting her veil.

Noor Abdallah sought the legal assistance of an attorney after she was told she could not wear the hijab at work because the Disney dress code does not allow for religious apparel of any kind.  

Abdallah, although not fully satisfied with the compromise, says the scarf approved by Disney is a "good first step" in letting her dress in compliance with her beliefs.
