What is the best way to dress for a visit to the parks?
Disney Theme Parks & Water Parks – Frequently Asked Questions
We suggest you dress comfortably, wear good walking shoes and check the local weather report before you leave for the parks at Walt Disney World Resort.
Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and must be worn in all public areas, except while swimming or seated for dining. Please review important guidelines and requirements for face coverings.
Proper attire, including shoes and shirts, must be worn at all times. The parks are a casual, family-oriented environment. Ensuring that the parks are family-friendly is an important part of the Disney experience. In that spirit, we ask you to use your discretion and common sense.
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. Attire that is not appropriate for the parks—and which may result in refusal of admittance—includes but is not limited to:
- Costumes and masks, which may not be worn by Guests 14 years of age or older.
- Specific Halloween and Christmas events. See below.
- Some outfits inspired by Star Wars. Learn more
- Clothing with objectionable material, including obscene language or graphics
- Excessively torn clothing
- Clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment
- Clothing that touches or drags on the ground
- Clothing with multiple layers is subject to search upon entry
- Objectionable tattoos
Dressing for Halloween and Christmas Events
Please note the specific costume guidelines for these 3 events:
