What A Fashionista Can and Can’t Wear To The Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

In case you have been too busy this morning to notice (I’m sorry), the tickets for the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party went on sale! I know I have my tickets and my husband and I are already planning out what to wear. We are going to Disney Bound but many others will go in full out costumes. The main thing to note, when going to the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is what you can and can’t wear. The rules changed a year and a half ago and some people are still confused. Allow me to help with that. Here is a breakdown of what a fashionista can and can’t wear to the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

There was talk, after all the costume changes, that adults can no longer wear costumes to the party but that simply isn’t true. There are strict rules and I am guessing they are going to be very thorough now that we have metal detectors and such. All you need to know is what the rules are and you are good to go. Sounds simple enough, right?

Not that there aren’t fashionistas under the age of 14 but I am focusing on those over 14 because there are more rules for us. Disney has a very well laid out policy and you can find it HERE. I am going to touch on the highlights.

If you are planning on going as a Disney Princess, in a long gown, it cannot touch the floor. It is also discouraged to have layers but that part is not forbidden. I do know of many Disney Brides, that choose the party to wear their dress one last time, and they are allowed so take that as you will. If it is cold and you are wanting to wear a cape, you can’t wear one that goes past your waist. So no red velvet Beauty and the Beast in winter capes, fashionistas!

Make sure your makeup is on point because there are no masks allowed. Period. Of course, many fashionistas know how to wield a makeup brush so I have no fears I will be seeing some incredible looking fashionistas.

Disney of course has the right to turn away any costume they see fit but there are ways to avoid having this happen. Don’t pose with other guests. This is strictly prohibited. You cannot pretend you are a Disney cast member in character no matter how incredible your costume is. Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent. They may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon and they may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.

That all seems pretty common sense to me but I am always saying common sense is not so common and this is the perfect example of where that could be demonstrated.

To be safe, take a look at the guidelines Disney has laid out for you and, if in doubt, Disney Bounding is always a safe bet. Or, just wear a fun and appropriate hat like I did in the picture above. Just be sure to be your fabulous and fashionable selves and to have a blast! Happy planning, fashionistas!
