We have some good news for you from the Disney Parks Blog. The Dapper Dans are returning to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom on September 20th! They will be coming back as the Cadaver Dans for the Fall / Halloween season.
The Magic Kingdom will also feature Mickey Mouse and friends dressed up in the Halloween costumes and now, on select days, there will be a Disney Villains Cavalcade featuring several villains.
I think the villains might rotate based on the write-up:
” On select days, you may even encounter a cavalcade of Disney Villains – from Gaston and Maleficent to Queen of Hearts and Jafar – creeping down the path, or a nightmarish procession featuring the Pumpkin King himself, Jack Skellington!”
Remember you can wear a Halloween costume (following the costume guidelines) from September 15-October 31st.
It’s not the same as normal, but Disney seems to be trying. They are selling treats normally reserved for the ticketed Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and allowing costumes outside the event as well. I respect that.
Here are some of the costume guidelines you need to know about. You can find the information HERE on the Walt Disney World site.
“While we encourage creativity, we also value safety and good judgment. If you’re planning to attend these special events, take a moment to read over our latest rules and regulations:
- 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 Disney parks, 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 provide unobstructed peripheral vision at all times with openings that allow the eyes to be fully seen.
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. (for example, 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.
- Masks of any kind may not be worn (unless they are for medical or Guest safety purposes)“
