    Hello, I read that masks are not allowed, but if it is made out of paper and maybe wear it around my neck for decoration? For example lock, shock, barrel are characters that have masks but I don’t want to wear the mask. It’s to identify the costume.

    Hey there, Nikia, and welcome to planDisney!

    We appreciate that you came by with your question and I'm excited that you get to visit the Disneyland Resort in a couple of months! I'm guessing that you were able to purchase tickets to Oogie Boogie Bash (congratulations on that!) and that you're asking about bringing masks to the event as an accessory to your costume. 

    Oogie Boogie Bash is one of the most popular after hours events held at the Disneyland Resort and it consistently sells out year after year. The decorations are second to none and Disney California Adventure Park is nearly unrecognizable thanks to all the spooky decorations! I love this event so much that I even dug into its rich backstory for one of my answers. I've been lucky enough to attend multiple years and I'd be happy to answer your question by relaying one of my experiences.

    You're absolutely correct that the Costume Guidelines restrict masks for Guests age 14 and older at these events. One year, two of my friends and I decided to dress as Lock, Shock, and Barrel (like you!). We made our masks from paper and attached them to a stick like a Venetian Mask, thinking that would be permitted if it wasn't worn around our faces. Unfortunately, the security Cast Members still considered them masks and turned us away. We ended up having to ditch them before entering. Ultimately, it will be at the discretion of the Security Guards what is allowed, but that was my experience, so I recommend not taking the chance and leaving any mask behind.

    I hope that you'll still be able to make a cool costume for the party! I like to recommend bringing along an extra bag or backpack for all the candy that you'll get throughout the course of the evening. I've heard of families that go home with upwards of 20 lb. of high quality treats! It's always fun to see which Villains will be joining the roster each year, so pay attention to the Disney Parks Blog for any upcoming announcements. Most of all, have fun!!

    Nikia, I hope this was helpful information for you as you plan out your costume. If you have any more questions, please feel free to visit us again. You're always welcome at planDisney and we'd love to hear from you. Happy Trick or Treating!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
