It’s the most not-so-scary time of year at Walt Disney World! Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is in full-swing on select nights at Magic Kingdom! If you’re like me, you probably are incredibly ambitious with your costume ideas because it is the only time of year adults are allowed to dress up. However, sometimes that ambition can be costly and also might not follow the regulations in place for everyone’s safety (and of course we all know no one would ever intentionally break the rules, right?).
Here are my favorite places to find reasonably-priced costumes that also fall with the MNSSHP costume guidelines!
ShopDisney has an entirely new line of gorgeous, quality costumes that are surprisingly reasonable in price! The best part? The majority of them don’t break the rules!
I’m living for the princess costumes that don’t drag the ground. They look like they would be super easy and comfortable for the duration of the event!
Cinderella costume - $72.95 | ©️ Disney
Belle village costume - $52.95 | ©️ Disney
Ariel tutu costume - $32.95 | ©️ Disney
I’m also thrilled that some characters don’t normally receive as much love on Halloween have beautiful costume options as well!
Mary Poppins costume - $72.95 | ©️ Disney
Edna Mode costume - $52.95 | ©️ Disney
Shuri Costume - $49.95 | ©️ Disney
Jessie Costume - $62.95 | ©️ Disney
Cheshire Cat Tutu Costume - $32.95 | ©️ Disney
And of course, there’s always the villains!
Ursula Tutu Costume - $32.95 | ©️ Disney
Queen of Hearts Tutu Costume - $32.95 | ©️ Disney
Don't forget the most classic costume of all (just be sure you don’t include whiskers with this one)!
Minnie Tutu Costume - $32.95 | ©️ Disney
2. Hot Topic
Once a store I was afraid to go into as kid, Hot Topic has become a destination for adult Disney fans with their lines of tank tops, dresses and accessories that are perfect for the fashionable Disney fan. Their costume dresses have become staples for guests attending MNSSHP in recent years.

3. Spirit Halloween
Normally, Spirit Halloween, a pop-up store only in operation during September and October, wouldn’t be my first choice. However, they now have a line of officially-licensed, decently priced costumes, many of which fit the guidelines for MNSSHP!
In case you want to channel your inner Sanderson sister.
Winifred Sanderson Costume - $39.99 | ©️ Spirit Halloween
Mary Sanderson Costume - $39.99 ©️ Spirit Halloween

The only non-floor length Elsa and Anna costumes/dresses I’ve seen.
