    Every contract has "clauses".  A "clauses" is just an item that both party agree on.  Such as how much you will get paid is a "clause".  What you get in the way of a trailer or dressing area is a "clause".  Who will direct the movie or show is a "clause".  Whether you have to make public appearances to promote the movie is a "clause."  How many episodes you have to appear in is a "clause."  Those kinds of things are spelled out in acting contracts.  

    What you are probably wanting to ask is do the Disney contracts have clauses that control things like what you can wear when making public appearances (they get to dress you), what you can say when in public (they get to censor you), whether you have to follow their moral conduct rules (they get to control what you do) and what you can say on social media (they get to control your on line postings.)  It is going to depend on what they put in the contract.   They CAN add those kinds of things into the contract.

    You speak as if "clauses" were some filthy Commie perversion forced on free-living democratic westerners. A contract is nothing BUT a collection of clauses.

    As several people point out - all contracts have clauses.

    For actors a contract may (or may not) have an exclusivity clause saying the actor can’t work for a competitor.  It may have a moral clause that is intended to hold the actor to a certain level of behavior.  There may be an arbitration clause about how to handle disputes.  And many other things.

    An actor’s agent is usually the one to negotiate a contract with a production company. So the exact clauses in a contract can vary.

    The days of studio wars, strict image management, and calculated media appearances are over in Hollywood, right? Maybe in some circles, but Disney has an image to protect and they will stop at nothing to make sure that the innocence of their stars remains in tact.

    The House of Mouse has been known to suppress, dictate, coach, and manipulate their stars in order to give off the squeakiest of clean appearances. This didn't only happen in the good old days, either-- such extremes still take place to this day. Young stars like Bella Thorne and the Jonas Brothers were subjected to all kinds of bizarre rules and policies during their time with the studio.

    Have you ever wondered why so many former Disney channel stars jump headlong into rebellion after they leave their mouse-ear-wearing days behind them? It’s a pretty good bet that much of it is because of the strict policies that they had to adhere to.

    A contract consists of a number of clauses.  That's what a contract IS!

    It is quite true that their contracts have clauses. It would be strange if they did not.
