    With the closure of the Galactic Starcruiser, is security becoming more strict on the costume/armor policies? I will be at Hollywood Studios for my 21st and would love to dress up as a Mandalorian to celebrate. My armor is all 3D Printed PLA.

    Bright Suns, Kenneth and welcome to planDisney!

    It's great to hear that you've decided to celebrate your 21st sun cycle here at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and there's really no better way to do so than in your best intergalactic style. I've personally been able to explore Black Spire Outpost with my husband in our Jedi robes and were welcomed from the moment we entered until it was time for us to make our departure off-planet. Now without having seen your armor first-hand neither I nor the Guest Relations Cast Member I spoke with about your plans for your birthday attire could give a very definitive answer beyond the current theme park attire guidelines and Walt Disney World Property Rules, but I can offer a few of my observations right from within Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge that you might find useful:

    • It is still up to the discretion of the security Cast Members as you enter Disney's Hollywood Studios and their leadership to determine whether what you'll be wearing will be permissible on the day, especially if you intend on already entering in full Mandalorian armor. It's always best to follow their instructions and prepare for a Plan B, as policies can always be subject to change without prior notice.
    • With the Halcyon no longer taking often ornately-attired passengers embarking on journeys and making a stop to Batuu, I have noticed fewer folks in full interplanetary attire during the day compared to last year. That said, I've also noticed that as the three blazing suns set over the planet and making it more comfortable to wear more layers, I've spotted more Jedi, Sith and even Mandalorians alike taking photos after dusk with Disney PhotoPass photographers or Image Specialist citizens of Batuu, quickly popping into the nearest Refresher to touch up or complete their transformation.
    What I would recommend in this case is to also look into the newest Capture Your Moment sessions available to book soon this month for your chance to add an extra-special element to your 21st celebration. When you book your Capture Your Moment: Disney's Hollywood Studios - Batuu session, I recommend aiming for the earliest possible slot during the day and it wouldn't hurt to inquire with your Image Specialists about whether you'd be able to put on your armor for the duration of your session together for some really epic shots. I hope that this was helpful Kenneth, and that you're able to have the best possible 21st birthday celebration on Batuu!

    This is the Way.
