Q: Can we wear costumes to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and if so what is allowed?
With the first Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for 2017 launching in just a few short days (August 25th), things are definitely reaching fever pitch. If your ghostly gang are planning on attending one of these special ticketed evening events, you’ll be pleased to know that this is the one time of year where guests are able to don their favorite costumes and head to the Magic Kingdom in character.
However, those plotting out their Halloween finery should note that there are some costume guidelines that guests must adhere to gain entry to Magic Kingdom on party nights. These are as follows:
- 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 guests then it’s best to leave it at home or risk being denied entry.
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 also note that costumes will only be allowed as part of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Those showing up at the Magic Kingdom out with the Party hours or at any of the other 3 Disney theme parks will be denied entry.
