Can Adults Wear Costumes to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party?

The short answer is yes! All guests, including adults, are welcome to wear appropriate Halloween costumes when visiting Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Part of the fun of visiting this spooky special event as a grown-up is having the ability to dress up as your favorite character.

There are guidelines that must be adhered to, so it’s important that guests who want to dress up read and follow them as they are putting together their costumes:

  • For all Guests:
    • 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.
    • 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, the park unless his or her costume can be modified to meet the above standards.
  • 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 (although Edna Mode says, “NO CAPES!).
    • 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.

A lot of Disney fans like to put on their best Disneybound when attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. If you’re not familiar with Disneybounding, this is a widely-known term for putting together an outfit using regular pieces of clothing that, when worn together, resemble your favorite Disney character. An example would be wearing a red top with black bottoms and yellow shoes to echo Mickey Mouse. The possibilities are endless and if you want to see and read about some examples of what folks have done in the past, take a look at the thread entitled, “Do You Disneybound?” over at
