You Could Get Barred From Disneyland For Wearing A Costume
Ahh Disneyland. The place where you can pretend to be a real-life princess and live out all your wildest dreams, right?
Well, apparently not because it turns out that people could actually be barred from entering the theme park if they're wearing a costume as an adult.
While at first that might sound a bit confusing, given the theme of the whole park, but it's all because children may confuse adults dressed in costumes with Disneyland staff.
It's not worth chancing it by turning up dressed in a costume as Disneyland's official website specifically says that adults could be "refused admission of ejected" from the park for wearing a costume which is deemed as "inappropriate attire".
It continues: "Costumes may not be worn by guests 14 years of age or older.
"Masks may not be worn by guests 14 years of age or older (unless they are for medical purposes)."
Thankfully, there are a couple of exceptions to the rule as adults are allowed to dress up at Halloween or Christmas, but there's even rules about what costumes are allowed to be worn.

At Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party or Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party park visitors are strictly warned not to pose as Disney staff or sign autographs for other visitors.
"Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent," the website explains.
"Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
"Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground (e.g., full-length princess dresses)."
Not only this, there's a few other dress codes that visitors are expected to adhere to, including not wearing any clothes with "obscene language or graphics" as well as tattoos that "could be considered inappropriate."
The parks also have the right to turn people away for wearing clothes that are "excessively torn" or that "expose excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment."
