DID YOU KNOW?
Disney is definitely a place full of surprises! And the house rules of their theme parks are no exception. Did you know that adults are not allowed to wear costumes at Disney Parks? If you're 14 years old and above, wearing cosplay costumes of any Disney character is not allowed. But if you're going to Disney with a child, they can still dress up as their favorite characters. It's even encouraged to the point that kids can get a Disney makeover from the styling pros in the theme parks. Why can't adults wear costumes in the parks? Well for starters, you can't wear any costume that includes a mask as this might conceal your identity. A lot can happen in Disney with the number of people who go there. Another factor to consider is you might confuse the kids into thinking you're part of the cast. This is especially the case if you're wearing a realistic costume on the theme park.
However, if you're an adult who insists on visiting Disney as a character from your favorite Disney movie, all hope is not lost! You can still go to your preferred cosplay store and Disneybound on your next trip to Disneyland. Disneybounding is a way to dress up as your favorite character without cloning them. Disneybounding is a way of fashion pioneered by blogger Leslie Kay. You can look like a Disney character by taking elements from their wardrobe and making them your own. For example, they can use a contemporary wardrobe that resembles a certain character. And instead of wigs and over-the-top props, they can use symbolic accessories. Through Disneybounding, fans can still represent their favorite characters without breaking the rules. There are tons of Disneybounding blogs and cosplay websites where you can find inspiration from!
