Q: What costumes are okay to wear for Star Wars Galactic Nights?
A: Tomorrow night (April 14, 2017) marks the debut of Disney’s Hollywood Studios new Star Wars: Galactic Nights event which will take place from 7pm – midnight. For those lucky enough to have tickets to this SOLD OUT event, Galactic Nights invites visitors to dress up as their favorite Star Wars character and take part in an exciting range experiences designed to delight Star Wars fans both young and old.
However for those hoping to don their Star Wars-themed finery and head to the parks in costume, there are a few very specific guidelines that need to be followed. Here’s the rundown.
Star Wars Galactic Nights Costume Guidelines:
- No one over the age of 14 is allowed to wear a mask. This means all of you Kylo Rens, Darth Vaders and Stormtroppers will need to give your costumes a bit of a re-think. Face painting however is permissible.
- For guests under the age of 14, masks can be worn provided that the eyes are still visible.
- Wigs, hats and other headgear are permissible provided that they do not cover the face.
- Disney will not allow anyone into the parks with weapons, guns, blasters etc. The ONLY exception to this is lightsabers which will be allowed at this event. If its not a lightsaber however chances of you entering the park with it are slim.
- Layered costumes or costumes that pose difficulty during security searches are generally inadvisable and may result in delayed park entry. However, robes for this event are permissible.
- Guests when they are in costume, are not able to pose as an official Disney Cast Member, sign autographs or pose for photos with guests. Doing so may get you kicked out of the park.
- Costumes for this event must remain family-friendly any costumes that are too mature or deemed offensive or violent will not be allowed into the park.
