    For the MNNSHP, are there any costume themes you would suggest? Avoid? I know the guests and characters dress up.

    Hi Michelle -

    One of my favorite parts of Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is looking at the other guests' costumes. While there is no requirement to dress up, many guests, both young and young at heart, do choose to wear costumes to the party.

    As far as suggestions go, really it's all up to your imagination and what makes you comfortable. I've seen everything from simple Halloween-themed t-shirts to elaborate group costumes. The favorite costume I personally wore to MNSSHP was when I attended with my daughter just prior to the 2008 Presidential election. We dressed as campaign workers wearing red-white-and-blue suspenders and t-shirts saying "Vote for Mickey." We got lots of wonderful feedback from cast members and guests.

    There are a few limitations on costumes at the party. This is the official statement:

    Children are encouraged to attend the party in costume.


    Halloween costumes should NOT:
    • Obstruct the guest's view or interfere with their ability to board/unload from attractions and/or the Walt Disney World Resort transportation system (including monorails, ferry boats and motorcoaches).
    • Drag on the ground.
    • Contain sharp or pointed objects or material that may accidentally strike another guest.
    • Be offensive to other guests.
    • Contain any weapons which resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
    Masks are discouraged as they can obstruct a child's view. Also, it can be VERY hot during MNSSHP. A mask on a hot face can be very uncomfortable.

    Also, there is a rule that adults may not wear costumes in which they might be mistaken for an actual Disney character.

    Good luck with your planning and have a great time at the party!
