Disney is allowing guests at Magic Kingdom to wear Halloween costumes for the first time during normal park hours.

The park recently announced that guests of all ages can wear costumes from Sept. 15 to Oct. 31.

In June, the park canceled its annual Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party because of the coronavirus pandemic. Previously, costumes were only allowed during party hours.

But this year, guests would be able to get into the Halloween spirit with costumes, themed foods, and merchandise, the park said.

According to the park's website, costumes cannot contain sharp objects, they must be family-friendly, they can't have weapons, and anyone over the age of 14 cannot wear a mask with their outfit.

Guests under the age of 13 can wear a mask, but it cannot cover the entire face, and their eyes must be visible.

The park said costumes that "reach or drag on the ground" such as "full-length princess dresses" are not allowed.

The park also added that all guests must still wear a face-covering while at the park.
