Disney has given us the BIGGEST Halloween present of all time! With Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party being canceled this year, one of the biggest losses was the chance to wear a Costume in Magic Kingdom.

Traditionally, these evening events were the only times adults (over the age of 14) were allowed to wear costumes, dress up, or cosplay characters. This Fall of 2020, Disney fans of all ages can wear costumes during the day to our favorite Disney Park!

Children under 14 have always been welcome to wear a Princess dress, parade as a Disney villain, hero or adventurer, but adults have been restricted to party nights only. Now, we’re getting our chance to strut our Disney bounding and costume piece stuff before the moon shines. Remember to follow all Costume Guidelines set by Disney , as well as remembering your face mask for health and safety this fall season:

  • Clothing with objectionable material, including obscene language or graphics are Not Allowed
  • Excessively torn clothing Not Allowed
  • Clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment is Not Allowed
  • Disney reserves the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that is considered inappropriate or could detract from the experience of other Guests.

Remember that other Disney theme park options are not accepting costumes. Epcot, Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios remain costume free, but you may Disneybound all you like! The Disneybounds arriving in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge are great fun!

How will you be dressing up during this MAGICAL and SPOOPY (yup, I spelled it that way – it’s spooky and fun!) Halloween season at Magic Kingdom? Remember to follow all the rules and have lots of fun. Create a fun face mask to go with your costume, and take all the pictures you like in your Disney costumes.
