You can dress up for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Disney World. Here are the guidelines

Halloween season is upon us and with that comes the idea to dress up when going to Disney World.

Be aware that during the normal visit costumes may not be worn by Guests 14 years of age or older and masks may not be worn by Guests 14 years of age or older (unless they are for medical purposes).

But when it comes to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, the rules are a bit different. You can dress up (and of course trick-or treat). Now, remember this is a separate ticketed event which runs from Sept. 30 to Oct. 31 on select nights.

Here are the general guidelines from Disney for dressing up when attending the 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. 
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. 
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. 
Here's a fun video from Disney explaining the guidelines.
