Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicks off again this Friday (2nd September) and with this comes a few new rules on costumes that are permitted into the event. Check out the full list of guidelines below.

Guidelines for Kids (13 and under)

Costumes and masks are permitted but the mask isn’t allowed to cover the entire face and the eyes have to be visible.

Guidelines for adults

  • Costume or props that cover the entire body are discouraged and will likely result in guests being checked more thoroughly by a member of the Disney security team.
  • Costumes are not allowed to reach or drag across the ground
  • Capes are permitted so long as they do not go below the waist
  • Themed t-shirts, sweaters, hats and blouses are all acceptable
  • Other acceptable accessories include wings, lightsabers, toy swords and tutus
  • Headwear is acceptable so long as it doesn’t cover the face
  • Masks are not permitted

There are also some general rules that apply to all guests:

  • Guests can dress as their favourite Disney character but are not allowed to pose for photos with other guests or sign autographs
  • Disney have the right to remove any guests wearing an inappropriate costume
  • Costumes that may contain items that closely resemble a real weapon are not permitted, as are costumes that contain sharp or pointed objects that may cause harm to guests


Remember that although some of these rules are disappointing, especially for adults, Disney are doing this to make sure that all guests are kept safe.
