    We are attending MNSSHP for the first time this year. I see the costume rules, but was wondering if some of the 14+ rules apply to the younger ones. Such as costume must not reach or drag the ground, and no capes allowed.

    Boo to you, Krissi! 

    I am so excited to hEAR that you will be attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!  You are in for a spook-tacular time as you trick-or-treat through Magic Kingdom Park.  Be sure to catch Mickey's Boo-to-You Halloween Parade; it is not to be missed.  Also, there is a brand new fireworks spectacular planned for this year's parties.  It is sure to be a frightfully festive evening!

    During Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, you can visit with some of your favorite Disney pals all dressed up in their own Halloween costumes.  Mickey and his friends wouldn't want any of their guests to miss out on the fun of dressing up for Halloween, so during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, guests of all ages are permitted to wear Halloween costumes.  When planning your ghostly getup, please adhere the Walt Disney World Resort's official costume guidelines.  

    The costume guidelines for guests 14 years of age and older state that costumes cannot drag along the ground.  The guidelines also explain that capes may be worn, but the length cannot go below the waist.  Although these items are not explicitly stated in the costume rules for guests under the age of 14, I think it would still be a good idea to follow these guidelines when planning costumes for your younger family members.  These rules are in place to ensure the safety of guests attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party.  If a guest of any age wears a costume that drags along the ground or a long cape, there is a chance that another guest could step on the costume, causing someone to trip.  Overly long costume pieces could also pose a hazard when boarding and exiting attractions.  My best advice to you with regard to planning your Halloween costumes is to make sure everyone in your family is comfortable.  You don't want anyone's costume to interfere with traveling around the park and experiencing all the fun party activities.

    As you make your plans to attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, you might want to consider boo-king an additional experience such as the Halloween Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace or Cruella's Halloween Hide-A-Way.  These events combine some tasty treats with a reserved spot for one of the amazing entertainment offering during this eerie event.

    Wishing you a frightfully fun time!
