    Hello, I am planning on wearing a pair of ears that have a picture of a silhouette of a knife. Is this okay?

    Hiya Jessica!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy! It sounds like you're gEARing up for some frightful fun at The Happiest Place on Earth this weekend! You asked an interesting question, and I'm going to apologize in advance for the vague response.

    The list of items that are not permitted notes 'weapons or weapon-like items are prohibited.' This bullet point most definitely includes very plastic-y, brightly colored children's bubble blowers in a 'blaster' shape, so I could see how even an image of a weapon, depending on its type, size, and/or pictured use could be troublesome. There's also an official 'Park Rule' about proper attire, which doesn't list anything specific (other than clothing cannot drag on the ground) but does mention that all Cast Members have the ultimate authority to deem something inappropriate or distracting. The issue with this rule, as you may have seen in the news or on social media, is that Guests might make it past the security check and park entry turnstiles, but then a Cast Member pulls them aside hours later.

    Sadly, but mostly because I cannot see your I'm sure super cute ears, I'm going to say that this one is a 'let your conscience be your guide' type situation. Typically anything that you're questioning now might be better to leave at home or back in the hotel because there's a possibility it could be confiscated. When we lived in CA and were local Annual Passholders, I once left a bike lock in a forgotten pocket of our jogging stroller that security found; even though I had zero intention of using it in the parks - it was our lock for when we went on strolls in our neighborhood that sometimes included stops at nEARby coffee shops or small stores - and there isn't a rule specifically saying 'no bike locks', the Security Cast Member still said 'well, now that I've found it I have the right to deem it questionable.'

    I'm so sorry that this answer didn't help to provide a definitive yes or no, Jessica, but I hope that it doesn't put a damper on your Disney days.
