    I know Guests 14 and up aren’t allowed to wear costumes, but when I’ve seen Guests Bounding, I see elements of costumes. What makes a costume a costume? How is it different from bounding?

    Hi Daniel! Welcome to the wonderful world of Disney bounding!

    In our house, as soon as a trip to Walt Disney World is booked, trips to the Goodwill and online searches begin to find pieces for our Disney bounding outfits. My daughters and I delight in planning these fun ensembles.

    The main guideline to remember when creating your Disney bounding wardrobe for the theme parks is that you want to evoke an impression of a character and not ever be mistaken for one. Instead of a full on Snow White costume, a Guest could wear a sunshine yellow skirt, bright blue shirt, and red glitter Mickey ears. Be Prince Charming with red jeans, a white shirt, and a gold belt; slip on a red dress studded with white polka dots for a classic Minnie Mouse look. Throw on some animal print, and you are Disney bounding as Disney's Animal Kingdom.

    At the Disney After Hours Boo Bash, adults may wear costumes, but a dress code does apply. For example, no floor length dresses or capes below the waist. While you are racking up on candy, spotting special spooks, and seeing Halloween Cavalcades at this event, you will see some spectacular costumes and an ample supply of Disney Halloween themed tee shirts.

    Extra points for incorporating Mickey ears into your Disney bound outfit!
