As always, comfort is key since anytime you’re in the Disney Parks it’s part workout, part entertainment. This is not the time to wear your new shoes you purchased just for your cute new costume. Trust me!
Take a look at some ideas for what to wear to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this spooky season and find out what types of costumes and accessories are NOT allowed!
Disney World Weather
The temperatures in September and October can be all over the place. One day it could be in the mid 80s and sunny and the next day it might drop down into the 60s with a chance of rain. It’s always best to check the weather forecast for your dates and pack appropriately.
Plan to rent a locker in the park if you think you may need to stow pieces of costumes that no one wants to carry after a few hours and jackets if the weather calls for them in the evening.
Let’s talk about what you can’t wear to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Masks are not allowed for adults and children over the age of 14. This is for safety reasons. If under the age of 14, masks must provide unobstructed peripheral vision at all times and have openings that allow the eyes to be fully seen.
Everyone can dress as their favorite character, however, guests are not allowed to pose for pictures or sign autographs for other guests.
Guests Cannot Wear:
- Costumes that are obstructive, offensive, objectionable, or violent.
- Any props or accessories that resemble, or could easily be mistaken for, an actual weapon.
- Costumes that contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another guest.
- Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.
- Costumes that reach or drag on the ground, like a full-length Princess dress.
- Capes that go below the waist.
Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into the party, and/or removed from Disney parks, unless their costume can be modified to meet the above standards.
