Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party Costume Guidelines.

What you Can and Cannot Wear as a Costume in the Magic Kingdom

While many guests who attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party love to wear costumes, there are costume guidelines that are strictly enforced by Disney Cast Members. To save yourself any unfortunate delays in entering the Magic Kingdom, here are the costume guidelines for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Costume Guidelines for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

  • You can dress as your favorite character, but you cannot pose for pictures or sign autographs for other guests.
  • Your costume must be family-friendly and cannot be offensive, violent or obstruct the flow of anyone around you.
  • Your costume cannot include sharp objects, pointed objects or any material of any kind that could accidentally come into contact with another guest.
  • Your costume cannot include any weapons that look like real weapons or that could easily be mistaken for a real weapon.
  • If you don’t follow any of these guidelines you will be refused entry into the park (or removed from the park), unless you can modify your costume to meet the guidelines.

Rules For Guests Aged 13 or Under

  • Costumes and some masks can be worn, as long as the mask doesn’t cover the entire face and eyes must be visible.

Rules of Guests Aged 14 and Over

  • Themed T-shirts, blouses, sweatshirts and hats are acceptable.
  • Layered costumes or any king of costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and this will likely cause you to be be subject to additional security screening.
  • Your costume cannot reach the ground or drag on the ground (for example, full-length Princess dresses are not allowed).
  • The same goes for capes. You can wear a cape, but the length of the cape cannot go below your waist.
  • Some accessories are acceptable, including plastic light sabers, transparent wings, toy swords and tutus.
  • Headwear can be worn, but it must not cover your face.
  • Masks of any kind cannot be worn.

Please remember that Disney reserves the right to deny admission to anyone breaking these rules. They also reserve the right to remove anyone wearing what they determine to be inappropriate attire, or anything that could detract from the experience of other guests. So use your common sense.

As always, all rules and regulations are subject to change without notice so be sure to double-check the official Disney costume rules before you go.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is an excellent event and one that I highly recommend. Be sure to plan your costume accordingly if you wear one. Many guests do not wear costumes and have just as much fun trick or treating, so you can enjoy the party either way.
