    Default New Rundisney Costumes & Safety guidelines

    From the RunDisney Site:

    We want to make you aware of some recent changes to our costuming guidelines and security procedures. These changes go into effect Jan. 6, 2016, and are being implemented to further protect our Guests and Cast Members.

    Disney reserves the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that is considered inappropriate or attire that could detract from the experience of other Guests. All participants and their Guests may dress as their favorite character, but must follow these guidelines as determined solely by Disney.
    • Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
    • Guests who dress like Characters may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
    • Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
    • Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
    • For runDisney participants ages 13 and under:
      • Costumes and some masks may be worn, as long the mask does not cover the entire face and eyes are visible.

    • For runDisney participants ages 14 and older:
      • Layered costumes, that could conceal prohibited items, are not permitted (e.g. Jedi robes).
      • Costume props, including those that surround the entire body (e.g. Death Star, UP House) are not permitted.
      • Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground. (e.g. full-length Princess dresses)
      • Capes may be worn if the length does not go below the waist.
      • Themed T-shirts, blouses, sweatshirts, and hats are acceptable.
      • Acceptable accessories include: transparent wings, plastic light sabers, toy swords, and tutus. Headwear may be worn as long as it does not cover the face.
      • Guests may not wear masks of any kind.

    Please note that while costumed attire may be worn during runDisney events, Guests 14 and older are not permitted to wear costumed attire in the theme parks. As a result, Guests may need to change their attire prior to visiting the parks after participating in a runDisney race.
    Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into, and/or removed from, a race or any race related event/activity unless his or her costume can be modified to meet the above standards.

    Safety Reminders
    • All runners, Guests, costumes, and bags are subject to screening prior to entering the event staging areas.
    • Weapons of any kind, or objects that appear to be actual weapons, including toy guns, are not allowed for any participants.
      • See Costume guidelines for examples of acceptable toy accessories.

    • For everyone's safety, selfie sticks, baby joggers, strollers, baby carriers, baby backpacks, skates, scooters, bicycles, skateboards, canes, crutches, walkers, walking sticks, and animals of any kind are prohibited from the course. Violators will be removed from the course and transported to the finish line area.
    • Headphones are discouraged due to audio messages that are placed throughout the course to ensure runner safety.
    • runDisney can offer human guides to assist registered participants with disabilities. Please contact rundisney@disneysports.com, no later than 90 days in advance of the event.
    I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

    Hmmm...it says no walkers, but last year I saw someone using the same type that I have. Im wondering if they mean walkers with no wheels. Mine has 4 wheels. I hope I will still get to do the 5k.

    Anyone else surprised by the timing of this announcement and how close it is to Marathon weekend. I feel bad for people who have been making elaborate costumes and now won't be able to use them - thinking the comment about no elaborate costume props that go around the body.

    At the Disneyland Half there was a gal who ran as a churro for the 10K and her costume would not be allowed under these rules. I'm sure the costume took a while to make. It just seems like they weren't thinking about the runners with the timing.

    Absolutely! Some of them were amazing.

    I never ran in costume, but it is disappointing that it has come to this and I will miss seeing all the costumes.
