Disney Releases Guidelines on Proper Attire Within Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge officially opens at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Aug. 29. Just like any other destination for travelers throughout the galaxy, there are trends and fashions to keep in mind as you think about what to wear.

As we shared earlier this year when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened at Disneyland Resort, younglings aged 13 and under are welcome to wear costumes for their visit. This includes masks, as long as they provide unobstructed peripheral vision at all times with openings that allow the eyes to be fully seen.

Costumes and masks may not be worn by guests 14 and older (except when special event costume rules apply), so here are a few recommendations for other ways to be in style on Batuu.

Approved outfit to wear to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

Whether you’re a fan of the First Order, the Resistance, smugglers or even droids, you are welcome to wear outfits inspired by their looks. When it comes to the residents of this galaxy far, far away, they have a unique style that’s easy to replicate. If you want to fit in with the locals, stick to a color palette of muted earth tones and focus on natural materials with a rugged, handmade look.

There are First Order Stormtroopers patrolling Black Spire Outpost, so to avoid any mix-ups, guests should not wear armor or uniforms. Also, you’ll only see one Wookiee – Chewbacca – around the village, so no wook-alikes will be permitted.

Costumes not appropriate for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

Please see the Walt Disney World rules for guest attire for more information. During the season when Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party takes place, special event costume rules apply so adults may dress in costume if they are attending the party.

I’m sure it would be similar to ren fests, comic con, historical reenacting, cosplay, etc if they let it be…kind of cool actually…

Unless you’re going to Disneyland, in which case Mickey’s Halloween party no longer exists in the main park. #boo, #somuchforhavingfunatDLand

This is why the park has low attendance numbers; Restrictions and time limits on top of the *expected* high attendance numbers is keeping fans away. When I first heard about the park and how much attention to detail it would have, I planned on putting off a visit for a few years at least. With the restrictions and apparent focus on the new movies, I doubt I’ll ever go.

I think the exclusion of season pass holders had a lot to do with it.

Why? That’s really stupid. Literally NO PLACE ELSE in the parks can you wear costumes. In Magic Kingdom if you try and dress like a Princess outside of MNSSHP you can be asked to leave.

Why would they change the rules for this one particular area? People just like to find a reason to complain. I went to the preview event and it was amazing.

Honestly? People like you we don’t want around anyway so I’d do everyone a favor and stay home.

There’s no time limit in California anymore. That was only temporary and they were never going to do that in Florida. The restrictions on costumes have been the same for years outside of special events. They’re just reiterating it to make sure people understand.

This is likely a safety rule. Disney is arbitrarily assuming kids 13 years old and younger are less likely to bring in violent weapons into a Disney park with malicious intent.

Disneyland has has steadily increased attendance numbers every single year. Not sure where you’re getting your fake news from. From 15.9 million people in 2009 to 18.6 million people in 2019. Maybe don’t make this news about you.

they put restrictions on costumes so that people don’t think a guest wearing a costume actually works at the park. If I have my child there I want to know that person is the Chewbacca costume taking pictures with works for the park, not just some nut job visiting. Also pretty sure their attendance numbers are fine.

When we went end of July this year I was wearing a Cabela’s safari shirt – one of the old designs that looks much more like the real thing than the current versions. I was repeatedly stopped, particularly in adventure land, for directions or other park information. So, Hades yes, they’re right to make it clear no costumes allowed if even a simple shirt causes confusion. BTW we were in line for over two and a half hours for the Star Wars ride. That includes the two times staff came out and said it’d be another half hour wait. Our… Read more »

What, you can’t dress up as Jabba the Hutt so you won’t go?

He was never going to go to begin with. Fake troll with his fake storyline. Most likely hates Disney because of their “leftist liberal brain washing agenda” of accepting all people (the horror!). Getting hard for these people to enjoy anything in life it seems. Oh well, I will be there in December with bells on!

We’ve hit a point where adults need to be reminded to not show up in costume. Outside of Halloween party or a themed party seems to be common sense.

Being a geek, I would add Comicons and other similar conventions, but, yeah, you’re right
