    Are adults allowed to wear costumes around Disney Parks during the Halloween season or just during the Halloween Party?

    Hi Christina,

    Adult are generally discouraged from wearing costumes to the parks other than during the actual Halloween Party.

    The main Walt Disney World website contains the following language about general costuming issues:

    “Attire that is not appropriate for the theme parks (and which may result in refusal of admittance) includes but is not limited to:
    • Adult costumes or clothing that can be viewed as representative of an actual Disney character.
    • Masks (unless you are dressing up for a particular event).
    • Clothing with objectionable material, including obscene language or graphics.
    • Excessively torn clothing.
    • Clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment.
    • Objectionable tattoos.
    A Guest is allowed into the parks if her or his hair (or make-up, if applicable) has been made to resemble a Disney Princess or character (for example, after a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeover) provided the Guest is not also wearing a costume or clothed to look like the character.”

    If an adult is wearing something that's just part of a costume, such as a boa or tiara, then they're generally fine. But if it is a full or elaborate costume during a regular day, the call about appropriate attire is up to the cast members at the park.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
