ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Halloween festivities were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Walt Disney World is still finding ways to allow guests to have a spooky good time.
For the first time, Walt Disney World will allow guests to wear costumes in Magic Kingdom during the Halloween season, with guidelines in place.

From Sept. 15 through Oct. 31, guests of all ages will be allowed to dress up in family-friendly costumes while in Magic Kingdom.
Guests 13 years old and younger may wear costumed masks as long as they “do not cover the entire face and provide unobstructed peripheral vision at all times with openings that allow the eyes to be fully seen,” Disney said.
For guests 14 years or older, costume masks are not permitted.

Disney said it reserves the right to deny admission or remove any guest wearing attire that is considered inappropriate.
Guests who choose to dress up as their favorite Disney characters are not allowed to pose for photos or sign autographs for other guests, Disney said.
