It’s September, meaning fall is swiftly approaching with the sweet scent of pumpkin pie and pumpkin candles in the air, which is to say: the Halloween countdown has definitively begun. Of course, Halloween will look a lot different for many families this year, with many probably choosing a movie and candy instead of taking their kids trick-or-treating. And yet, even though it won’t be a normal Halloween, it’s still an opportunity for kids and even parents to get dressed up and pretend to be someone else for a few hours. And this is where Disney enters the picture.
Until recently, only kids were allowed to wear Halloween costumes in Disney Parks, with the exception of a ticketed event like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, which was canceled due to COVID-19. Before, adults could only wear costumed wigs, hats, and capes. But now, parents and adults can partake in the costume-wearing to show their love for Disney heroes and villains if they’re willing to make the trip to one of the theme parks, Disney announced. As per Romper, beginning on September 15 and lasting until Halloween, of course, everyone will be able to wear a costume during the regular operating hours. Although, if you’re over the age of 13 you won’t be allowed to wear a costume mask, and will have to just wear a cloth mask to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. So if you’re rearing to wear your Hocus Pocus costume (or well, pretty much anything Disney related, since you can buy plenty of costumes and merch when you’re at the park), then this one’s for you.
