    My family and I are going to Disney World in a few weeks, and my 12-year old daughter would like to cosplay there. I heard that no one 12 and younger is allowed to be in costume at the park, is this true?

    Hello, Clara!

    While your princess is still willing to embrace all of the magic in Walt Disney World, by all means, let her do so!

    According to the Walt Disney World Help Center, "Attire that is not appropriate for the parks" which "may result in refusal of admittance" includes "Adult costumes or clothing that can be viewed as representative of an actual Disney character."  Your 12-year-old would surely not fall under the category of "Adult" so I'm sure that she can enjoy dressing in costume for just a wee bit longer. Be sure to bring your camera so that you can capture the fun for future enjoyment, too. She'll be grown before you know it, Clara!
