Tonight marks the start of this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties held on select nights at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. If you are planning on attending one of these special soirees with your ghostly gang, you’ll be pleased to know that this is one of the few times each year where guests are encouraged to don your favorite Halloween costumes and had to Magic Kingdom park in character!
However, to make sure that all Magic Kingdom theme parks guests are safe and comfortable, Disney has adopted some very important guidelines that all costumed-party guests must follow. Abide by these guidelines and you are sure to have a spooktacular night. Don’t follow them and you do risk being turned away at the gates. With that in mind, here’s a look at the things you’ll need to know if attending the Halloween party in costume.
- Masks of any kind are no-go when it comes to adults. Be caught sporting one and its curtains. However, it is okay to have your tiny tots wear one as part of their costume but the mask mustn’t cover the whole face and the eyes must be visible.
- It’s permissible to dress up as your favorite Disney character. But don’t try to pawn yourself off as the real deal. Start up your own Character Meet and Greet and your evening will come to an untimely end.
- Be tasteful. This is a family-friendly event so leave the sexy Snow White costume at home or save the supremely gory get-ups for Halloween Horror Nights.
- Any costumes that include fake weapons that could be mistaken as real weapons are a no-no!
- Layered get-ups or ones that completely shroud the attendee are discouraged and will result in lengthy security screenings.
- Full-length capes are not allowed. Any capes worn as part of a costume must not go below the waist.
- Outfits cannot be full length and drag on the ground. (Sorry princesses.)
- If your get-up has spikes, sharp corners or anything else that could accidentally harm another guest then it’s best to leave it at home or risk being denied entry.
- Themed T-shirts, blouses, sweatshirts and hats are acceptable.
- Acceptable accessories may include the following: transparent wings, plastic lightsabers, toy swords and tutus.
- Headwear may be worn as long as it does not cover the face.
Guests who don’t follow the above guidelines may be refused entry into or removed from the park unless the costumes can be modified to meet the standards outlined above.In addition, Disney reserves the right to deny admission to any guests sporting attire that staff deem inappropriate or that could dampen the spirits of other Halloween guests.
Visitors should note that costumes will only be allowed as part of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Those showing up at Magic Kingdom in costume during non-party hours or at one of Walt Disney World’s other three theme parks will be turned away!
