Popular MNSSHP Costumes?


#1

I have never been to this party and I am thinking about costumes. I am sure it is impossible to find a unique costumes with this many people, but I would like to avoid costumes that are extremely popular. I am guessing pirates and princesses are a dime a dozen. Any suggestions of what to avoid and/or costumes ideas.

We are a family of 5 and I am going to try to theme them all together.


#2

In past years, I’ve seen plenty of Incredibles.
I can’t clearly recall others, but count on Disney themes for many.


#3

LOTS of pirates. Also lots of Minnie Mouses. We went as Alice in Wonderland characters and there were quite a few of those in various styles.


#4

If I can only figure out how to costume myself as Dug the Dog.

(Yes, lots and lots of pirates, how could I forget, and you’ll be up to your arm pits in princesses too)


#5

Maybe it’s because of who I’m helping every single party and that’s the crowd who comes to me, BUT EVERY NIGHT SO FAR 1 OUT OF 3 FAMILIES ARE PIRATES!!! I actually did that statistic while on set one night, and sure enough every 3rd or 4th family had pirates within them. :laugh:


#6

I was going to suggest pirates. :pirate: Surely, there won’t be any other pirates. :laugh:

That may explain the lack of RUM!


#7

I admit it now - I’m going to the Pirate shop and get the face painted. It’s a pirate’s life for me. Yo ho


#8

I was thinking of dressing the 5 of us up like the original Mickey Mouse Club Mousketeers. I am sure we wouldn’t be the only ones, but do you see a lot of them?


#9

Ooh, I like the original mouseketeers idea! You may not be the only ones to think of it, but I still think it’s more original than pirates, princesses, and the like. Another theme that I think would be cute is Mary Poppins and Bert.


#10

Not so much. Most people these days aren’t that familiar with the original show.

Well that, the lack of a duty free shop in WDW, and the overall ban of alcohol in the MK.

I love the Mary Poppins idea, but themeing 5 of us in Mary Poppins may be more work for me than I want. I also thought the Mouseketeer costumes would be really comfortable to walk around in. The kids will be 17, 7 and 4. Between the DH and the 2 youngest, I need to keep things comfortable to head off possible complaints!


#13

Cute idea! I don’t think I saw any Mouseketeers on the night of our party.

Yes, definitely go for comfort. We had to make some last-minute adjustments to our costumes… our Mad Hatter found out he couldn’t walk in his shoes and our March Hare found out he couldn’t breathe through his rabbit nose… :laugh:


#14

Good point. You do have a broad range of ages, and Mouseketeer costumes would address that in a creative and comfortable way. The point is to have fun, and it’s hard to have much fun in the parks wearing NORMAL clothes/shoes if they aren’t very comfortable, so I’m sure the polyester costumes a lot of folks wear to MNSSHP can be a pain. I think you should go for it!


#15

This is why I use the same costume every year: “tourist on vacation”.


#16

we just wore our halloween ears. my girls were minnie and ariel. they were hard to find lol! saw lots of alice in wonderland. my FAVORITES were a couple and an older wheelchair woman wearing roger rabbit and jessica rabbit outfits and the woman in the wheelchair was dressed as a taxi cab!!! too cool! and another lady dressed her baby up as a flower and put light and flowers on her stroller! it looked so anne gedes!!! i saw lots of star wars families too!

Now why didn’t I think of that??
