What Are Disney’s Costume Guidelines for Guests?

Share This!

For the first time that I can recall, Disney is allowing guests to wear costumes inside Magic Kingdom during the day. With the cancellation of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Disney has added lots of Halloween fun at Magic Kingdom this year. If you’re thinking of heading to Magic Kingdom to celebrate spooky season, it’s a good idea to review their costume guidelines. Costumes during the day are allowed at Magic Kingdom through October 31, 2020.

You can review Disney’s official guidelines on their website, but let’s break it down into a simple list. It is important to note, Disney reserves the right to refuse admission or ask that a guest change their attire if it is perceived to be inappropriate and / or unsafe.

  • Costumes must be family-friendly.
  • Costume should not impede a guest’s ability to move safely.
  • No sharp objects or objects that could strike a Guest or Cast Member.
  • Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
  • Decorative masks (other than approved facial coverings) can only be worn by Guests 13 and under, but eyes must be able to be seen and provide unobstructed views.
  • Masks (other than approved facial coverings for COVID-19 safety) cannot be worn by any Guest 14 years of age or older.

One thought on “What Are Disney’s Costume Guidelines for Guests?

  • I purchased a Disney Halloween costume on Halloween Costumes from Bet Midler’s role as a witch in Hocus Pocas, and based on the photo, the costume was perfect. However, when the costume got to my house, the edges of the chiffon that hangs from sleeves, which should have been hemmed was only cut and sewn into the costume which left them a frayed mess. I paid nearly $200 for it and I approached the company about it and was told that it was probably defective, to mail it back and they would send another. However, the second one was just as bad. I don’t know who approved the design (it clearly has a Disney tag) that says they were approved to make the costume by Disney, but it falls below Disney expectations on how something is made for sale to the general public. If Walt had seen it he would have been angry enough to have someone’s fired for it. If you look at their website, I’m apparently not the only one unhappy.
