    Can I Disneybound as a Mandalorian Jedi using 3D printed armor? I thought armor wasn't allowed, but I read a planDisney conversation dated 3/14/23 between Razmik from CA and panelist Al where Al said it was. They were talking about Star Wars Nite.

    Bright Suns, Matt and welcome to planDisney!

    It's been a hot interplanetary voyage under these three blazing suns as I'm currently writing to you from Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge here at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and am glad to give you the inside scoop as to what you can except for your bounding adventure here at Black Spire Outpost. From the sounds of it, you're referring to a question asked about a specific event that took place over at Disneyland Resort, which had its own costume guidelines in place as a specially-ticketed occasion after dark. I've personally experienced and observed a bit of a difference between both coasts as to what has been permitted when it comes to intergalactic attire, so I took the opportunity to speak with the citizens of Batuu and Cast Members at the entrance of the Theme Park alike and am happy to let you know what they shared with me:

    • When Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opened at Disneyland Resort, a set of official guidelines for bounding was released that did indicate that "hard items such as body armor, helmets or kneepads" were not permitted. During my most recent Disneyland Park visit a few weeks ago, I found that security does tend to be stricter depending on the materials used as you proceed through the scanners, and whether you were attending a special event with relaxed guidelines; the Cast Members here in Orlando let me know that as the Halcyon began her voyages they had a bit more discretion as to what is acceptable to be worn at Walt Disney World Resort. 
    • On the other hand, as I look around here I notice quite a few folks wearing robes and adorned with various pieces of armor as they live out their own Star Wars stories and have observed more of them emerge after dark in order to take photos wielding lightsabers at night away from the hustle and bustle of daytime travelers to the planet. The Cast Members I spoke with let me know that the primary prohibited items they currently enforce the policy against include blasters of any kind, outfits that drag on the ground and full face helmets being worn. 
    Personally, I know of quite a few frequent visitors to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge who have printed their own armor and have happily worn them on their journeys; they recommend making sure that whatever you wear can be easily removable in the event that the security team wants to take a closer look before you enter Disney's Hollywood Studios. A number of Mandalorians and Jedi recently descended upon Batuu this week to celebrate Life Day clad in all their robes and armor without any issue, but be aware that these attire policies may be subject to change without further notice by the time of your visit and don't hesitate to come back to planDisney for any other tips before you make your journey! 

    This is the way,
