    Attending Disney for May 4th and we are curious as to what is actually allowed for adults to wear. Many last year were dress as Star Wars characters and one of us wanted to dress as Ahsoka Tano, is this allowed?

    Bright Suns Faye! Thanks for visiting planDisney.

    We'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort over the May 4th weekend as well, and believe me, in my excitement, I'm already starting to plan our family outfits. On some days we're wearing fun Star Wars t-shirts I picked up from shopDisney along with our regular park attire like shorts and sandals and on other days we're taking a more Disney-bounding approach to our dress. So, I understand wanting to be in the spirit for the Force-filled fun, and I'm happy to help guide your choices! No one wants to be turned away for violating park rules.

    Park rules have guidance on inappropriate attire, which includes costumes for Guests who are 14 years or older. There's an exception, however, for some outfits inspired by Star Wars. You're free to wear Batuu-inspired clothing in muted tones with layers, so you'll fit right in with the locals, and you're also free to dress in a way that pays tribute to your favorite Star Wars Characters. If you'd like to be inspired by a Character, use everyday traditional clothing put together cleverly. This approach is called bounding. You may have seen Guests dressed this way and recognized their inspiration. It's always fun to spot an imaginative Disney-bounding success. There are some bounding rules to observe: Military attire, robes, masks, face paint, elaborate headgear, blasters, holsters, armor, helmets, and kneepads should be left at home. Full Character suits are also not permitted.

    So, while someone in your group can dress like Ahsoka Tano, and I hope they do, they'll want to skip face paint and headgear, for example. Instead, they can try styling their hair in a way that recalls Ahsoka Tano's head tails maybe! I'm going to be inspired by Hera Syndulla, and I'll be sporting some pilot-style goggles along with muted colors. If my hair was longer, I'd probably wear pigtails. Some green ribbons woven into braided pigtails really might do the trick. Get creative! You can search the internet for inspiration. Creative Guests have come up with lots of park-appropriate looks.

    Please read through the guidance when putting together your creative looks and remember that it's always up to security whether your outfit is appropriate for entry. And make sure you're comfortable! You'll want to enjoy the parks while you're celebrating the best holiday of all.

    May the Force be with you.
