Here’s A List Of Disneyland And Disney World Rules To Know Before You Go

Did you know adults cannot wear costumes and only children under 14 can wear masks?

It’s no secret that guests flock to Disney to feel like they are living a real life fairytale. From the moment you step into a Disney Park, you are immersed into a whole new world, and that overwhelming immersion can make you feel like anything is possible. And while Disney is a place where dreams come true, and there are so many things that can happen, there are also many things that can’t happen…

We think you’ll be surprised at some of the things that are NOT allowed at Disney. Be sure to take some notes so you don’t get in trouble with the big mouse on your next visit!

Check out some of the rules and regulations.

1. Appropriate attire

No shoes… No shirt… You’ll have a problem! Proper attire must be worn at all times, including a shirt and shoes. Clothing that drags on the ground is prohibited as well.

2. Adult costumes

Sorry adults! You may feel like a kid again at Disney, but you can’t dress like one. Only guests under the age of 14 can wear a costume.

3. Cutting in line or join someone in line

We’re not sure how strongly this rule is enforced, as we’ve seen this happen before! However, it is a rule and we advise you not to risk breaking it.

4. Selfie sticks

For safety reasons, and not to disrupt the other guests, selfie sticks are banned. Looks like you’ll have to take a selfie the old-fashioned way!

5. Masks

Masks can only be worn by guests under the age of 14, and must provide unobstructed peripheral vision, with eyes fully seen at all times. The only exception to this rule is for medical purposes.
