Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party kicks off at the Magic Kingdom on September 2, and like last year, costume restrictions are in place and updated since 2015.

This is the latest set of rules that you need to know prior to visiting.


Disney reserves the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that is considered inappropriate or attire that could detract from the experience of other Guests.

All Guests may dress as their favorite character, but may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.

Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.

Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.

Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.

Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into, and/or removed from, unless his or her costume can be modified to meet the above standards.

For Guests ages 13 and under:

Costumes and some masks may be worn, as long as the mask does not cover the entire face and eyes are visible.

For Guests ages 14 and older:

Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.

Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground. (e.g. full-length Princess dresses)

Capes may be worn if the length does not go below the waist.

Themed T-shirts, blouses, sweatshirts, and hats are acceptable.

Acceptable accessories include: transparent wings, plastic light sabers, toy swords, and tutus. Headwear may be worn as long as it does not cover the face.

May not wear masks of any kind.

Awesome. Thank you

Yes. Like the other poster said, at the 30 day mark.

Should be, but it will be at the 30 day mark for the off site guests (I'm 1200 miles away from the World and I can currently make fastpasses for up to Jan 20th on my phone) It's treated as if it's a regular day up until 7:00pm for the party night. They might find fast passes that are 3:20-4:20 and then 4:30-5:30 and third one for 5:40-6:40 as an example.

Question for my co-worker: Her family is staying off site but want to go to the party only. Can you get three fast passes during the 4:00 p.m. to 7 p.m. before the actual party starts without being an on site guest?

We went on the 31st. It was the best time I ever had at WDW. My seven year old, and us, had an amazing time. I'd do it again for sure.

It wouldn't surprise me if Disneyland started this given all the scalping

Did you buy military tickets? When we do that the military person has to be there and the entire party shows ID. Edit: That is when we BUY the tickets. Because after we buy them we are given a normal ticket to get in.

Halloween's over guys! ;)

Because on the last party I gave 2 of our tickets to my cousin and his gf. They got then asked for ID because I wasn't there (we were going an hour later). I thought it was highly unusual but they said they were doing this as a new thing. Thought it was odd as not always the person buying the tickets will be the one attending as people also buy them as gifts?

Question: Why do you ask?

EUmickeyNov 04, 2016

Question: Has anyone been asked to show their ID's when entering the party (ie. showing their tickets) to proof that they were the buyers of the tickets/Proof the ticket purchaser was with the party?

just an update.. we as a family have STILL not finished the candy we collected lol. I think we will do this deal again next year even if its the EXACT same. My son now says he wants to do disney EVERY year for his birthday even when he is big lol

oh I agree free market, but it's to a point where you have to go to the brokers because they buy most of it up (not saying for this specifically) and jack up the price (we have been told by Disney to go to ebay to buy their things since they don't limit the supplies as much anymore).

If only there was an option not to purchase the tickets...:cautious:
