A few words on costumes

When it comes to costumes, as of 2016, there are new rules and the costume policy has changed. In a nutshell, your costume should be family-friendly and appropriate for the occasion. You can dress as your favorite Disney character but you won’t be allowed to pose for pictures or sign autographs for other party guests. Weapons (or objects resembling weapons) as well as sharp or pointed objects, are prohibited.
