Odd/funny DL Tokyo rule

I've been to every Disney park in the world. DL Anaheim ("The original") is my favorite followed by DL Tokyo. I was there eleven years ago and happened to notice two odd rules: all tattoos must be covered and no member of organized crime groups allowed. Wow. That's a problem at DL Tokyo? Actually, both are symbols of yakuza (the Japanese mafia) membership.

As an aside, a friend's wife is Japanese. In Japan, a stunted pinkie ("yubitsume") signifies membership in the yakuza. She was a hostess at a restaurant once when a guy came in. She asked him "How many?" and he help up three fingers. "Ah, three," she replied as she picked up a trio of menus. "No," he corrected her. "Four." That's when she realized that one of his pinkies was missing. Yow!

Well I guess my tattooed family would have to be wearing long sleeves! I wonder how fully that rule is enforced
