Earlier this year, we covered Disney adaptive Halloween costumes. A few new additions cropped up this week that’ll make young Star Wars, Marvel, and Toy Story fans happy. Joining the catalog will be Black Panther, Buzz Lightyear, The Mandalorian, The Impossibles, and Cinderella.
The adaptive costumes at Shop Disney make the Trick-Or-Treat season easier for parents with special needs children. For example, kids with wheelchairs can now deck out their rides with new covers like the Razor Crest, the Incredimobile, Cinderella Pumpkin Coach, and Buzz’s spaceship.
As for the costumes themselves, there are several built-in conveniences specifically designed for kids who need a little extra care. These features include tube access areas, roomier leg circumference, longer leg length, and wheelchair-friendly back area.
I’ll admit that the Razor Crest cover is cool. It also has lights! Now, these covers do hinder some usage of the wheelchair and will not work with battery-powered wheelchairs. Check out the details of the Razor Crests here:
- Cover set includes side ship pieces plus control pad flap that fits across lap, and two wheel covers
- Comes with 12 structural ribs, six on each side
- Detailed sublimated art
- Features lights and engine sound effects; On/Off switched housed in control pad flap
- Fits most standard wheelchairs with 24” wheels
- The wheelchair must be operated by a helper when the costume is attached
- Easy assembly required, instructions included
- Not to be used with battery powered wheelchairs, baby strollers, etc.
- Wheel lock must be engaged when putting on or removing the costume from the wheelchair
- Remove the costume before folding the wheelchair
- Coordinates with the Star Wars: The Mandalorian Adaptive Costume for Kids, sold separately.
- Inspired by Star Wars: The Mandalorian on Disney+
- Requires 2 x CR2032 button cell batteries for lights and 3 x AG13 batteries for sound, all batteries included

Something I noticed, too, was that the prices have dropped since earlier this year. For example, the costumes and covers were $59.99, but the ones currently available on Shop Disney are $49.99. Considering the stress we’ve all been under, this is a bit of good fortune.
