The rules for costume-wearing at the park are similar to any other time at Disney. Kids ages 13 and under may wear full costumes as long as any mask does not completely cover their face and their eyes are showing.
Guests ages 14 and up may also wear costumes, as long as they do not surround the entire body or do not touch or drag on the ground. Capes may not go below the waist and no masks of any kind are allowed.
All costumes must be family-friendly and may not contain any weapons that resemble real weapons.
