The Craziest Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Costume Ideas - Ever!

Updated on August 18, 2011

So you have heard about and purchased admission to the separate-ticket event that happens in the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, right?

After reading about and seeing photos of the event you are about to go to, you know that there will be children and adults wearing both generic (like witches, devils, and pirates) and Disney-licensed (like Mickey, Woody, and even Princess Tiana) costumes.

You have learned the rules well - make the costume non-obstructive (and non-baggy if heading to the select attractions that open on those select nights) and family-friendly. (Men, you have to reconsider wearing that male reproductive organ costume when doing Disney on a separate park price.)

But you have a dilemma to face - a lot of commercial Halloween costumes are so flutin' expensive, even at times when the economy is good enough for buying them. Also, the pirate/princess costume ideas are so overrated and overused.

What's an adult (or child) to wear if you are going to that event? I have a batch of excellent (mainly) do-it-yourself, semi-homemade and/or homemade Halloween costumes for you that are easier to wear when meeting a purple-and-orange Mickey.

For the Party of 3-Plus

Turismo: Buy identical bags for everyone to wear on their backs. (If short on money or want to resemble an all-out turismo that invades the parks each winter and summer, buy a couple of matching, solid-color T-shirts.) Make a flag with some fabric and a sturdy stick so that your group can follow you. (If they wear the same shirts, make sure you wear different clothes in the same color scheme.) I dare you and your group to chant and sing songs as you explore the park!

Disney Buys Marvel: Make your own (or if you have the money, buy) Marvel superhero or villain costumes. Boys can dress as Spider-Man, any X-Man, or Captain America, while girls can dress up as Scream or Storm. Make sure that everyone wears ear hats (you can make your own if tight on money) on top of their heads to look as if they are a part of Disney!

Mousercise: Your group can be a modern-day fitness class by wearing sports tank tops, muscle shirts, and jazz pants. (Men can't go shirtless and women can't go in tops that resemble bras.) If you are a fan of the original 80's version, have everyone dress up in leotards, tights, sweatpants, and legwarmers! (If anyone plans to wear a shirt that accompanies it, have him buy or design one with Disney images.) Don't forget to have them wear ear hats and sneakers, too!

Mouseketeer Flashmob: Have everyone buy or design Disney T-shirts, wear ear hats, and head to the park. If anyone disapproves of your costume, make sure they sing the "Mickey Mouse Club Alma Mater" out loud!

Zombie Danceline: If you and your girls want something showy for Walt Disney World's ghoulish fete, wear matching leotards and jazz shoes and put makeup to appear as if you are dead. If anyone asks them who you are, form a line and kick your heels. It's a great costume, especially if you have dancers as friends!

Mickey Mouse Carnival - HOT! HOT! HOT!: Have everyone dress in white Latin dancing/modest Brazilian Carnival costumes! (You can make your own!) This idea is based on the early 90's Tokyo Disneyland street show!


For the Pair

Whiny the Pooh: Known as "Hi Eeyore" or "Eeyore Kid," this funny home video about a toddler being scared of a Hundred-Acre-Wood donkey at a Disney character breakfast is in costume form. You can wear a white tank top while the other person dresses up as Eeyore. Pretty soon, you will hear calls of, "Hi Eeyore," as you guys walk through the park. If your partner is Eeyore, have him tap on your shoulder and hide his eyes with his hands. If you are the toddler, say, "I'm scared," and scream!

Capoeira Combatants: Wear solid white tops and white pants that are loose (but not-too-loose, if going on any ride) at the legs. It's a quick and easy costume for especially two men!

Truant Officer and Student: As your partner wears a policeman costume, wear a school uniform (solid-color polo shirt tucked into black, khaki, or navy blue non-denim bottoms at least knee length with a belt worn and solid-color white shoes) with a backpack on your back! People will think that he catches you for skipping school to do Disney!

For the Individual

Interstate 4: Wear a black top and tape white reflective tape down the middle. Cut out car shapes from fabric and attach to either side with their fronts going in opposite directions. Leave a space on one side of the road and cut out shapes from red, white, and blue fabric to form the Interstate 4 shield. Also, you can customize that costume by using shields for Florida state roads, other interstates, and even the one for Florida's Turnpike.

Disney Character Identity Crisis: Why bother sticking to the same Disney character costumes when you can be all of them? Simply buy a set of "HELLO - my name is..." tags, and write names of various Disney characters. Then post them all over your solid-colored shirt or other park-casual top!

Abraham de Lacy Giuseppe Casey Thomas O'Malley the Alley Cat from Aristocats: Why stop there at well-known Disney characters? The cat known as Thomas O'Malley for short can be done in costume form. Dress all in solid orange, make orange cat ears, and make and sew on the bottom an orange cattail tipped in white. You are representing a forgotten member of the Disney character family with those simple materials.

Walt Disney World Survivor: Dragging your Walt Disney World-hating loved one to the event? Make a shirt that says, "I survived Walt Disney World" and the year of visit and have him wear it!

Gaston Reads X: Based on the scene when Gaston skims one of Belle's novels in Beauty and the Beast, this Disney villain costume is guaranteed to make people laugh. Wear a red shirt, black pants, and brown boots. Also, carry one article of reading material (I suggest that you bring something light, like a family-friendly magazine or a small novel.) with you at all times. Oh, and act as if you are reading it - hold it sideways!

Helpful Event Tips

  • Wear reflective tape - even if you are not on the streets, you must be easily seen.
  • Check your candy before eating it, although Cast Members hand them out at trick-or-treating locations.
  • Always supervise your children when exploring the park.
  • I suggest that you use face paint instead of masks - they allow you to see more clearer.
  • If you are going on rides, check height and health restrictions.

Oh, and I suggest to you that you don't leave for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party without a costume worn! Of course, some of the ideas here are quick and easy so you can stand out from the trite princesses and pirates. Don't prefer being in costume? Wear an orange, purple, or black top, preferably with Disney images on it! Have a great Halloween!
