    We are going to the MNSSHP while visiting WDW in Oct. We all have 60's costumes, my son(17) wants to be a 60's singer from the era. But he wants to wear a vest with no shirt, can he do that? Or does he have to wear a shirt under the vest?

    Hi Judy,

    The final call on this would have to be made by the cast members on site at the Party. Appropriateness of a costume is completely their call. The official language for MNSSHP costume protocol is:

    "Halloween costumes should NOT: - Obstruct the guest's view or interfere with their ability to board/unload from attractions and/or the the Walt Disney World Resort transportation system. - 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." The official language for general park attire is:
    “Attire that is not appropriate for the theme parks (and which may result in refusal of admittance) includes but is not limited to: - Adult costumes or clothing that can be viewed as representative of an actual Disney character. - Masks (unless you are dressing up for a particular event). - Clothing with objectionable material, including obscene language or graphics. - Excessively torn clothing. - Clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment. - Objectionable tattoos. - A Guest is allowed into the parks if her or his hair (or make-up, if applicable) has been made to resemble a Disney Princess or character (for example, after a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeover) provided the Guest is not also wearing a costume or clothed to look like the character.” My educated guess is that if your son is wearing the vest button, so that it is functionally a sleeveless shirt, then he'll likely be fine. However, if the vest is open, exposing his chest, he may be asked to cover up. I've been to MNSSHP half a dozen times and cannot recall ever having seen someone shirtless there.

    Again, the final call is up to the cast at the scene, but personally, I'd be prepared with an alternative.
