You can’t wear Star Wars costumes in Galaxy’s Edge — not even the ones on sale

Disneyland’s new Star Wars land, Galaxy’s Edge, invites guests to roleplay as members of the Resistance, First Order, or smuggler industry in a galaxy far, far away. But the park requests that guests “14 years of age or older” not wear costumes, particularly those that look too similar to Star Wars characters.

For Star Wars fans, this policy might feel like a cruel Imperial mandate, but there’s some logic behind Disney Park’s longstanding costume policy. Here’s the official rule from Disneyland website:

The current Disneyland Resort costume policy will be in effect in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Costumes may not be worn by guests 14 years of age or older. Appropriate Disney bounding — dressing in outfits inspired by favorite characters — is permitted.

The unspoken reason behind the rule is to keep park-goers safe, and not allow bad-intentioned guests to misrepresent Disney and its characters.

Consider this scenario. Galaxy’s Edge cast members perform as the citizen of Galaxy’s Edge fictional planet, Batuu, along with a handful of iconic characters from the sequel trilogy, like Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, and Rey. They make themselves available to guests to answer questions, take photos, and maintain the illusion of the park.

However, if a costumed guest wanted to cause trouble, they could trick other guests in to believing they’re official members of the cast, giving the other guests bad guidance and being a general nuisance. It’s not hard to imagine a bro dressed as Han Solo making rude gestures to an unsuspecting family’s Polaroid. Nobody wants that Solo.
