Disney princess cosplay seen being escorted out of Magic Kingdom in viral video

There are many experiences that make a Disney vacation incredibly special. From eating a ton of great food to riding fun rides that take you to faraway places, and all the great merchandise you can wear all year long. One experience that is always special, no matter how old you are, are the character interactions that can be found throughout the Parks. Who doesn’t want to give Mickey a big hug or get up to some mischief with Stitch?

When it comes to these princeless reunions, Disney doesn’t want any Guest to be confused about whether or not the character is part of the Park experience. Disney also knows that Guests love dressing up as their favorite characters. While Disneybounding (wearing normal clothing that represents specific characters) is completely acceptable, Disney has strict rules when it comes to costumes.

A viral video has been making the rounds, showing a group of women, dressed in full princess costumes, being escorted through Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom park by a group of Disney cast members. The women admit that they are not Disney princesses. The person filming is told that the guests can wear costumes because it is Halloween time. However, they are all then taken to a closed area of ​​the Park.

The original video says that the women were expelled from the Walt Disney World Park. Follow-up videos on TikTok were flooded with comments from both sides of the argument. Many pointed out that Disney doesn’t normally allow costumes like that in the park. Others argued that women were allowed to dress like this because it was Halloween, the only time of year that adults can dress up.

You can watch the video of the meeting below:

Here are the current Disney costume guidelines:

Disney World Guest Appearance Guidelines

Disney World reserves the right to exclude guests from its closed attractions who are wearing clothing that may create a distraction. This policy is in effect at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon, and Disney Springs.

Examples of unacceptable dress include:

  • Clothing displaying offensive messages/language
  • Adult costumes or clothing that could be seen as a costume (children under 10 years of age are excluded)
  • Clothing made with offensive material (i.e. transparent)
  • Excessively torn clothing
  • Clothing that exposes inappropriate body parts, such as bikini tops, thongs, bikini bottoms, etc.
  • Visitors wearing wedding attire are discouraged from entering the theme parks.

All Disney theme park visitors must wear shirts and shoes at all times. Swimsuit tops are permitted when worn with other appropriate clothing.

Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon have other established criteria that may vary from the general appearance guidelines. Depending on the venue and the event, variations may be accepted.
