    If they won't know you have the make-up on, you shouldn't have a problem going in for the early admission.
    Just do your make up, go in at 4, and change into the rest of your costume at 7

    Ummmmmmm! You haven't seen AlohaStichs' transformation! It is uncanny and I think they would be a little concerned if AlohaStich walked in with a dress and makeup!!!

    My makeup will take about 3 hours as well. Costume alone is about 45 minutes. Not to mention the props that are carried!

    The below siggie picture takes about 2 hours for makeup!

    Of course, they won't accept Halloween Event Tickets for entry until the times they specified 3pm/4pm.
    I bet it is a management error. I have never met any group of managers who can simply agree on one thing. They can be so scatter brained!

    Re: Not allowed in costume for trick or treat party, early entry!

    I thought I had read some where last year
    that if you did the party
    you couldn't wear it (costume) until the actual event started.
    So if you were going to wear a costume you had to wear regular clothing during regular park hours, then run back to home/hotel and change for the party.
    Basically, no costumes (above 9) would be allowed into the park prior to the event time.

    Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort



    Costume Information

    All event attendees — including adults — may dress in their favorite Halloween costume and must follow these and other guidelines as determined solely by Disney:
    • Costumes should be child-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive or violent.
    • Guests may wear masks. However, masks must not obstruct vision and eyes must be visible at all times.
    • Guests who dress like Disney Characters may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
    • Costumes should not drag on the ground.
    • Costumes should not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
    • Costumes should not contain any weapons which resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
    • Guests of all ages may only wear costumes to the Disneyland Resort Halloween event to which they have valid tickets. During normal Park operating hours, costumes are permitted only for Guests ages 9 and younger.

    Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into the event unless his or her costume can be modified to meet the above standards.

    ^ they are copying WDW, then they should copy on how they let people in, in costume, with the early entry, it just doesn't add up, "okay.. you can come in, then leave, get ready, then come back at 7" doesn't it seem like they would either say "Dont come till 7" or "since we let you come at 3/4, you can come in costume, with this ticket, and wristband kay? kay!"

    Maybe you CAN come in early entry in full costume BUT they will have all those who come early in costume in a Main Street holding pin and then when the party starts they'll release you all at once like cattle moving down Main Street! I KID! I KID!

    I mean I wouldn't think this early entry would be something to blow steam out of your ears but you know, if it makes you upset then so be it. I would just find a way to adhere to their rules and create a costume that will both be easy to put on via a locker or bathroom that will make you and Disneyland happy all at the same time.

    This may be a challenge for you to create a costume that is both amazing and quick and easy to put on. I just try to look at the ways to have fun with the event at the same time abiding by the rules set by Disneyland.

    Has anyone ever gone in costume as a CM? Could you answer a question or would they kick you out. You could have plaids everywhere. Hmmmmmm.
    Glory, Glory Man United! And the Reds go marching on! On!! ON!!!

    I survived my first Marathon. Got my Mickey at WDW after 6:22:08 of "fun" on the course. Not happy with the time, so I will go back and be getting Goofy next year!

    If you did get past the gates, doubt you'd be in the park long.
    I wouldn't even doubt if you were banned from the park for awhile.

    Disney protects their image (in the parks) very well.
    So if you can get kicked out for dressing like a character and posing for pic's
    I can only imagine if you dress as a CM and get caught answering questions from guests.

    Re: Not allowed in costume for trick or treat party, early entry!

    So does anyone else think that the move of the party over to DL is turning into more trouble than it's worth?

    I think City Hall might be busy.
    1. Park closes early (correct)
    2. Fireworks at party only (from info the blogs have given us)
    3. If those who have paid for a ticket don't get to see fireworks due* to winds (they are hyping this perk up...don't think that is smart), CH will most likely will hear about it (they hear about it when it's free).

    Mickey's Halloween Party promises lots of fun for the littlest trick-or-treaters as well as adults! Throughout the spookiest month of the year, Disneyland Park hosts an exciting event where you can experience Disney's unique spin on Halloween.

    Don't miss out on:
    • Exclusive viewing of the boo-tiful Halloween Screams fireworks spectacular

    Positive:
    I think NOS is a better area for a Halloween Party.



    * Applicable Theme Park, days and times of operation and all other elements including, but not limited to, operation of attractions, entertainment, stores and restaurants and appearances of Disney Characters may vary and are subject to change without notice.

    PS: they might want to add a line about fireworks may not be shown due to weather conditions (since this is the time that the Santa Ana winds can make a possible appearance). Yes, you can argue it's sorta in there....but when someone is mad, last thing they want City hall to read to them is the sentence: "subject to change".

    HOWEVER you forget a CRITICAL PART of last years party,

    IT WAS IN DCA,

    AND DCA WAS CLOSED COMPLETELY and emptied of guests,
    BEFORE THEY allowed entry for THE TRICK OR TREAT PARTY.

    This year, they are not requiring the DL be emptied BEFORE they start allowing Trick or Treat party guests.

    But then that creates the question of how the heck are they going to evict Regular Park guests when the party starts???????????

    No, they wouldn't ban you from DL for a while.

    But if you look at the rules you previously quoted:

    Guests who dress like Disney Characters may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
    This rule basically is saying that GUESTS are NOT ALLOWED to act as Cast Members, and if you are doing so, DL can "ask you to leave the event", BUT before it got to that stage, they would ask you to stop acting the part of a Cast member and/or modify your costume so there was no confusion. If you refuse to comply, THEN DL would likely escort you out of the party. But they wouldn't Ban you from DL.

    Re: Not allowed in costume for trick or treat party, early entry!

    I'd just send a letter/email to them and tell them it's one of those situations where different people say different things and ask them to look into getting a final say. Hopefully you'll get a better result than waiting for an answer over the phone. And hopefully since it involves a clarification of rules they'll actually look into it and send you more than the canned response.

    In the process, I'd make mention of the fact that WDW handles guests in costume with early-entry to the parties just fine without any major difficulties and it would be nice if Disney remained consistant. Coming to the parks in costume is one of the major perks for this event and disallowing guests to enjoy the early entry just for taking part in that park is discouraging and seems unnecessary.

    Not having the early entry in costume cuts into my riding time on POTC, Tea Cups, and AIW rides!!!
