Cosplaying Disneyland~

I've heard rumours that you can't you can't cosplay inside of disneyland.

Can anyone substantiate or dispel these rumours? We'd really like to take a trip down there.

It's true. They don't allow it, because you might be mistaken for one of the face characters.

I think they only allow it on certain days; maybe for Halloween only? I've seen pictures of people in Disneyland in costume (I think one was actually Anastasia from the cartoon, even though it's not Disney), but I'm not 100% sure.

Best to contact someone at Disney and find out, I guess.

Then I suppose there's always the option of finding costumes that are more "normal" clothing like (or else more "fashion", like perhaps gothic lolita or something) and going that way.

Random 4chan Voice: "Considering that Kingdom Hearts is perhaps the most over cosplayed series of this year and last, and Anime Expo is literally walking distance away from Disneyworld, I'm surprised that cosplayers don't just march on the gates, hundreds upon hundreds of KH cosplayers looking to storm the gates of Disney"

I'd pay to see that.

Disneyland doesn't want anyone that is obviously weearing a costume in the park. Why? Because if someone mistakes you for a face character or cast member and you do something not befitting of one of these people, they could get in trouble for it. They can turn you away at the gates if you're too dressed up in costume. I wouldn't try it.

lol I totally remember thinking when I was at the KH gathering at AX when all of Organization XIII came together like "All of Organization XIII should just converge on Disneyland." I even pictured the thought in my head and it was actually quite awesome but somehow I think possibly wearing an Organization coat into the park shouldn't be a problem since it's not covering your face and it can pass as just a regular long black coat.

But yeah they pretty much won't allow people in costume into the park with the exception of Halloween in Disney's California Adventure where kids and adults alike can where costumes only the kids though can trick or treat for candy XD

I've always wondered this too. My friend told me this was true a loong while back, but a credible friend of mine (BART Boy) told me it was allowed, and another friend who was with us at the time confirmed it.

...At least I think that's what happened. I can't really remember these things when I'm tired. x_x;

Eh? I cosplay at Disney sometimes, and I've only received compliments and "awww, how cute!" from the staff (or odd stares). A lot of my friends work there, and they say you're only not allowed to cosplay Disney characters. The rules are even more lax on Halloween (there were folks dressed as Disney chars and no one really said anything). Talking about Disney World in Orlando, of course.

We've done medieval, Fullmetal Alchemist and traditional japanese costumes around the parks. :| Not sure what would make employees say no. Maybe something too revealing or inappropriate.

I can totally understand why Disney wouldn't want people dressed as their characters outside of Halloween. The general public doesn't costume outside of Halloween so if they (general public) saw a Disney character in the park they would assume it was a Cast Member. I'm sure Disney is afraid someone would mistake a costumer as a Cast Member and if that costumer were to do something unbecoming it may ruin the image of that character for the other guests.

Hope that made some sense.

Hmmm...in about March of 2005, for some reason they let me get away with it when I was cosplaying Rinoa at Disneyland. You think possibly because it may look close to casual clothes? Or maybe the rules or enforced just a little while after this date? Because I remember I didn't hear of these rules until about October 2005.

I have seen other cosplayers pictures were they are wearing a costume inside disneyland especially when AX took place in anaheim but probably you want to contact them so you wont be turn back.

When I went to Disneyworld in 2005, I saw a lot of little girls wearing Disney princess costumes. They also have "character breakfasts", where your kids can breakfast with actresses dressed up as Disney characters.

I would say to call Disneyworld's customer service and tell them of your plans to dress up. Then see what they say to decide how you proceed.
