Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge debuted in Disneyland on May 31st! While guests can visit Batuu in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort, on August 29, 2019. Whether you are visiting now or later, Disney reminds guests that the current Disney costume policy remains in effect; even in Batuu.
Disney’s General Costume Policy
For Guests ages 13 and under:
- Costumes and some masks may be worn, as long as the mask does not cover the entire face and eyes are visible.
For Guests ages 14 and older:
- Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.
- Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground. (e.g., full-length Princess dresses)
- Capes may be worn if the length does not go below the waist.
- Themed T-shirts, blouses, sweatshirts, and hats are acceptable.
- Acceptable accessories include transparent wings, plastic light sabers, toy swords, and tutus. Headwear may be worn as long as it does not cover the face.
- Masks of any kind may not be worn.
What Can you Wear to Batuu?
One great way to get into the Disney spirit without wearing a costume is Disneybounding! This is where you piece together traditional clothing items that when worn together, serve as a recognizable tribute to Disney characters.
Let’s take a look at some examples
Permitted attire includes:
- Bounding: piecing together traditional clothing items that when worn together, serve as a recognizable tribute to Star Wars characters
- Batuuan attire: wearing outfits inspired by the villagers of Batuu—muted tones, vests, layers, etc.
Not permitted attire includes:
- All robes or military-style attire
- Masks, face paint, elaborate headwear, blasters or holsters (lightsabers are allowed) or hard items such as body armor, helmets or kneepads
- Full character suits
Please note that some of the items sold in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge cannot be worn inside the land.
The Small Print of Disney’s Costume Policy
- Some costumes and masks may be permitted during select special events (such as in Walt Disney World: Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Star Wars: Galactic Nights and Disney Villains After Hours and in Disneyland: Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party).
- Disney reserves the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that is considered inappropriate or attire that could detract from the experience of other Guests.
- All Guests may dress as their favorite character, but may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
- Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
- Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
- Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
- Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into, and/or removed from unless his or her costume can be modified to meet the above standards.
While Disney does encourage creativity, they also value safety and good judgment. Don’t forget that proper footwear must also be worn. These guidelines will help you arrive at Batuu in style.
