What NOT to Wear at Mickey's Not So-Scary Halloween Party

Halloween at Disney is not to be missed. It is one of of our favorite times of the year to visit because we love all that it has to offer! From the decor to the special dining experiences, we love immersing ourselves in this holiday at Disney World! Two of the most special events you can discover are Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Oogie Boogie Bash. My family attended MNSSHP back in 2022 and had a great time.

Disney celebrates Halloween in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is offered at Magic Kingdom in Disney World, and Oogie Boogie Bash is at Disneyland California Adventure. Both are after hours ticketed events that offer unique characters, food, and entertainment.

These two parties are different, and you can read all about what each one has to offer here! However, when it comes to outfit planning and costumes, the rules and guidelines remain the same. If you are worried about what to wear, we've put together 6 outfits that meet all guidelines over in our Template Shop. These outfits are directly linked to each item you see, so all you have to do is click and add to cart! Our templates take all of the guesswork out of where items come from and can save you hours of planning.

Here are some Do's And Don'ts you need to know before you start planning your outfits!

Do: Wear a Costume - This is one of the few times you are allowed to dress up at Disney World. You can choose to dress as your favorite Disney character, Disney attraction, or even a non-Disney theme! Masks are allowed, but very limited. Just make sure you don't sign any autograph books or pose for photos with guests you may not know.

Don't: Wear full-length costumes that drag on the ground - While you are allowed to wear princess dresses, your dress cannot drag on the ground, as this is a safety issue. Capes also have a special rule. You may wear them, but they cannot touch below your waist.

Do: Wear a Halloween themed outfit: While wearing costumes is fun, it's not everyone's cup of tea. Costumes are not required to enjoy the night's festivities. We've helped plenty of people plan outfits that were not costumes for this night. From Disney Halloween themed shirts to Spooky ensembles, you can still have plenty of adorable photos while not in costume!

Don't: Wear a Mask - Masks of any kind are not allowed in the parks for guests 14 or over. Guests under 14 are allowed, but there are restrictions. You can read those guidelines here.

Do: Make sure your outfits are family-friendly. Remember, this is Disney World. Any t-shirts or costumes still need to be considered family-friendly. Nothing violent, gory, or offensive will be allowed.

Don't: Bring props that look like weapons. If you plan on dressing like a pirate or something similar, leave the toy weapons at home. Costume props that resemble weapons will not be allowed at the parks. However, plastic lightsabers are allowed!
