Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland is coming back to the park this year and it’s supposed to be a “frightfully delightful night.” On select nights this fall from September 20 to October 31, you can join Mickey and friends for a happily haunted time. Some highlights include riding the Headless Horseman, a fireworks celebration, and a chance to meet Disney villains and other popular Disney characters. No matter what age, sounds pretty awesome, right?
But before you pull the trigger on tickets, there’s some interesting costume guidelines on Disney’s website you might want to know about.
If you’re planning to take an epic selfie or group shot, think again.
“All guests may dress as their favorite character, but may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other guests.”
It’s probably not a good idea to wear that super short outfit you wore in college.
“Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.”
If you’re thinking about dressing like Wonder Woman, leave the shield and sword behind.
“Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.”
Certain layered costumes and props are not welcome.
“Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.”
If you want to be a Disney princess, know this:
Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground (e.g., full-length Princess dresses)
The Batman costume isn’t in your favor. Kids 13 and under can rock masks but if you’re 14 and older, think again.
“Masks of any kind may not be worn, except for medical purposes.”
Although we’re just poking a little fun at these guidelines, we know these precautions are for everyone’s safety. Now that you know how to NOT be refused entry into this event, go have a spooktacular time.
