    We have plans to visit Hollywood Studios during our trip. My 14-year-old daughter would like to "look the part" for our time in Galaxy's Edge. We have a Ray costume which looks like a shirt and pants. Will she be turned away for wearing it?

    Bright Suns, Corie.

    Thank the Maker you received the Resistance's secret transmission and followed its coordinates here to planDisney! With the presence of the First Order looming around every corner, I was afraid it might be intercepted. I imagine your journey across the galaxy was an arduous one, so grab a glass of ice-cold Blue Milk and relax while I try to decipher this message for you. My Aurebesh is a bit rusty, so it might take me a moment ...

    Ahh, there it is! I consulted the Sacred Texts (Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules) and found the droid, I mean, information we are looking for: Costumes and masks may not be worn by Guests 14 years of age or older, except during certain special events. Since your young Padawan is 14-years old, she will need to refrain from wearing a full costume. However, when traveling to Batuu, it's important to blend in with the natives as to not cause suspicion about your activities amongst the Stormtroopers there.

    I found two articles on the Disney Parks Blog explaining what is and is not acceptable to wear at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. The first article is linked within the full dress code on the Walt Disney World Resort website and explains that, while costumes may not be worn by guests 14 years of age or older, dressing in outfits inspired by Star Wars is permitted. In other words, your clothing can be a recognizable tribute to a known Star Wars character or inspired by a Batuuan villager. If you look at the first picture example of what is acceptable within that article, it shows a female Guest dressed in an outfit inspired by our favorite Jedi, Rey. Her outfit is nearly identical to what Rey wore when she met Luke Skywalker for the first time. The second article reiterates the same guidelines with further picture examples that might help.

    I've visited Batuu myself many times before and have seen Guests of all ages in galactic gear that replicates Rey's unique style. As long as your daughter isn't cloaked in fur from head to toe like she's Chewbacca's long-lost sister or wearing a Stormtrooper suit, your daughter should be able to wear what you're describing without any issues. If you want further confirmation she won't be turned away, you could always contact the Walt Disney World Resort Jedi Masters (Guest Services) by sending an email transmission their way. They know the Sacred Texts like the back of their HANs and will be able to provide more specific insight into the ways of the Force than I as a Padawan ever could.

    A Jedi-in-training needs a lightsaber to wield, so stop by Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities in Black Spire Outpost on your excursion to Batuu to find your daughter's perfect fit. Then, look to the skies - there's a good chance you'll spot Rey and Chewie out and about. She may even send you on a secret mission for the Resistance while you're there.

    Corie, I hope your daughter enjoys every moment of her Star Wars adventure. May the Force be with you both! 

    Til the Spires,
