The Disney Parks Blog
announced Wednesday that even though a new dress code
at the park bans costumes worn by guests 14 years and older, an exception will be made for special theme park events, like the Mikey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
The costume ban was part of company-wide security enhancements
, which included the installment of metal detectors and banning toy guns at the Disney parks.
While adult costumes will now be allowed at special events, there are still a few rules.
According to the blog, "guests ages 14 and older are strongly discouraged from wearing layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body as they may be subject to additional security screening."
Guests also aren't allowed to wear any costumes that contain weapons or objects that resemble or could be easily mistaken for weapons, costumes that drag on the ground or headgear that covers the face.
Plastic light sabers, fairy wings, toy swords and tutus are acceptable attire.
As part of the park's regular dress code policy, all costumes must also exclude objectionable material, like obscene graphics and can't expose "excessive portions of skin."
Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will take place from the beginning of September to the end of October. For a full list of rules and dates, check the Walt Disney World website
If you thought you might have to retire that awesome Donald Duck costume you wear to Disney, think again.
