    My son and I are coming to Disney World for Halloween and he wants us to dress up as father and son, Han Solo and Kylo Ren. I saw he would be allowed a plastic lightsaber but would a plastic replica blaster for my Han Solo costume also be permissible?

    Hi Chad,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for stopping by with your great question about dressing up with your son for Halloween.  First, I love that you are dressing up as a pair!  And you get extra "Cool Dad" points for dressing up as such a famous father and son duo!

    It's always a great idea to find out what the theme park attire guidelines are before you set off on vacation and it is great that you are researching your costume accessories.  Since you will be visiting during Halloween, you will be happy to know that adults will have the opportunity to also dress in costume for the occasion.  Scroll through the previously linked pages for all the specific details and you will notice that costumes may not contain any weapons, or be replicas of weapons.  The only exception to this are plastic light sabers and toy swords.  Therefore unfortunately, Han will have to leave his blaster at home.  But really, Han shot first so it's not quite fair to let him bring his blaster to the party in my opinion.  He can be a bit hot headed!

    Since you will be visiting very soon, do you know about the special Halloween entertainment experiences that will be occurring during your visit?  Although this fall may look a little different than in the past, it is truly amazing to me how the Cast Members have come up with so many Magical ways of celebrating while maintaining health and safety standards.  In addition to all of the special experiences, there will be special fall food treats throughout the Walt Disney Resort which look ghoulishly good! I have got my eye on that Not So Poison Apple Cupcake!

    Have a Magical vacation Chad and please let us know if you have any further Disney vacation planning questions.  We are Disney fans, just like you, and love to help you plan all the details of your next Magical adventure!
