On January 4th, runDisney issued an updated set of rules that dictate what kind of costumes will be allowed for Disney runs.
According to the runDisney website, the updated rules are as follows:
- Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
- Guests who dress like Characters may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
- 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.
- For runDisney participants ages 13 and under:
- Costumes and some masks may be worn, as long the mask does not cover the entire face and eyes are visible.
- For runDisney participants ages 14 and older:
- Layered costumes, that could conceal prohibited items, are not permitted (e.g. Jedi robes).
- Costume props, including those that surround the entire body (e.g. Death Star, UP House) are not permitted.
- Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground. (e.g. 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.
- Guests may not wear masks of any kind.
These rules are evidently updated in an effort to make runs even safer than they already are. Preventing masks, costumes that drag, and props that surround the body may seem excessive, but Disney is obviously implementing these rules for the safety of both the runners and their spectators. These rules still allow a lot of creativity when it comes to costumes, so if you have an awesome run outfit, feel free to share it with us!
