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!
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.
6. Smoking in non-designated areas
Smoking of tobacco and e-cigarettes is only allowed in designated areas.
7. Recreational devices
Prohibited devices include:
- Remote control toys
- Inline skates
- Shoes with built-in wheels
Weapons of any kind are absolutely prohibited. This includes toy guns and squirt guns.
9. Glass containers
The only exception to this rule is for baby food!
As much as we wish we could bring our furry friends with us, only service animals are allowed in the parks. Check out this adorable service dog at Disneyland getting his caricature drawn!

You may not blow up a balloon at Animal Kingdom or use a plastic straw, for the safety of the animals.
12. Large tripods
Don’t even think about it!
13. Folding chairs
Folding chairs will not make it past the gate.
14. Stroller regulations
Strollers larger than 36 inches by 52 inches (92 centimeters by 132 centimeters) are not allowed inside the park.
15. Backpack regulations
Suitcases, coolers or backpacks larger than 24 inches long by 15 inches wide by 18 inches high (61 centimeters by 38 centimeters by 46 centimeters) will not be permitted inside the park.
16. Distribution of materials
It’s against Park rules to give out recorded or printed materials of any kind.
17. Selling goods or services
You are not allowed to sell or display goods or services, lest you compete with all the shopping opportunities Disney offers visitors.
18. Alcohol or illegal substances
You can’t bring in your own alcoholic substances. However, you will be able to find alcoholic drinks within certain areas of the parks, because having a glass of wine while watching the fireworks is essential.
We know Disney is exciting, and it’s easy to want to run from one attraction to the next, but for safety reasons, running is prohibited (except in the case of Disney marathon, of course).
Leave your potty mouth at home! Engaging in unsafe, illegal, disruptive or offensive behavior are also not allowed, unsurprisingly.
21. Unauthorized events
This rule includes:
- Demonstrations or speeches
- Usage of any flag
- Banner or sign for commercial use
- Inciting a crowd
22. Inappropriate tattoos
Tattoos containing objectionable language or designs are not permitted. So cover up!
23. Feeding the animals
This includes the birds!
24. Filming for commercial use
Photography, videotaping and recording for business purposes are not allowed.
25. Flash photography in an indoor attraction
You may want to take a picture inside Space Mountain, but flash photography in an indoor attraction is prohibited.
