    Hello! I will be going to the Halloween Party special event during my stay at the Magic Kingdom and was hoping to dress as Captain Hook. Would a plastic hook hand be acceptable or would that fall under "accessories that resemble a weapon"?

    Welcome to planDisney, foolish mortal ... I mean, Andrew. Thanks for stopping by with your ghoulishly great question. We've been dying to have you.

    In just weeks, you'll embark on your magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. And you'll be attending the oh-so-fun Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! Eeeek! That makes me scream with horror ... I mean, excitement! Since you have already read the Park Dress Guidelines for the Halloween Party, it sounds like your planning is off to a frightfully fantastic start. Now, let's look alive and get to your question so you can start your countdown to the magic!

    I just spoke with a super helpful Cast Member (who actually confirmed with another Cast Member) that unfortunately, plastic hooks are not permitted in the theme parks. Just as you suspected, Andrew, this is due to the guideline that states, "Costumes may not contain any props or accessories that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon."

    While I know this was not the answer you were hoping for, Andrew, I hope it was at least helpful in planning your costume. My favorite part about Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is dressing in my Disney best while playing in Magic Kingdom Park, and it sounds like you're ready to get your villain on at the Party. So, be sure to check out "planDisney Tips & Tricks for BOOtiful Halloween Costumes" on Disney Parks Blog. 

    I hope this helps, Andrew, and I hope you (and the 999 other Happy Haunts) have the best time at the Halloween Party! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have.

    Hurry baaaaaaack,
