Wow! It’s already here! Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicks off on Friday event. It is a fun hard-ticketed event at the Magic Kingdom that invites Guests of all ages to experience the fun of Halloween with the fantastic Mickey’s Boo-To-You Parade (my favorite), an impressive fireworks spectacular in Hallowishes (also my favorite), trick or treating, dance parties, the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular stage show, and more. Of course, one of the most fun aspects of the party is the fact that you can dress up in costume.
A while back, Disney had claimed that Guests would not be able to dress up any longer for the parties, but that appears to have been rolled back, as Disney has now released there new costume guidelines that Guests will need to adhere to. Here are the guidelines that you now need to keep in mind:
- Disney reserves the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that is considered inappropriate or attire that could detract from the experience of other Guests.
- All Guests may dress as their favorite character, but may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
- Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
- Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
- Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
For Guests Ages 13 and Under
- Costumes and some masks may be worn, as long as the mask does not cover the entire face and eyes are visible.
For Guests Ages 14 and Older
- Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.
- Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground. (e.g. full-length Princess dresses)
- Capes may be worn if the length does not go below the waist.
- Themed T-shirts, blouses, sweatshirts, and hats are acceptable.
- Acceptable accessories include: transparent wings, plastic light sabers, toy swords, and tutus. Headwear may be worn as long as it does not cover the face.
- May not wear masks of any kind.
Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into the park unless the costume can be modified to meet the above standards. For more information on these guidelines, please visit Disney’s website.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is spooktacular fun for Guests of all ages, and dressing up is part of the fun. I’m glad Disney has decided that Guests will continue to be able to dress for this year’s parties.
