Hi,

DS is 4.5, do all the children this age wear costumes while in the parks?

We have only gone in December so it was too cold for a costume except at the tea party,

So, we have the costume all set for three weeks time :) We may need a second one if he won't change , he is even planning to wear it on the plane :)

Thank you, I think I might buy him one before we go so, which is most popular? He loves Buzz Lightyear.

Yes there is a mixture of either costumes or Disney clothes etc. My daughter has always dressed up in some costume or another but my son who's now 10 just wears a Disney t shirt or 'normal' clothes.

He may get hot in the Buzz outfit especially this time of year, they look quite a 'thick' costume?, just a thought. Saw quite a few boys this week in Peter Pan outfit which was just a tunic over their clothes.

Have a fab time:banana:

We saw loads of girls dressed up in the full works (even with those clippy cloppy heeled sandals!) but very few boys on our recent visit.

My son is 5 and he wore Disney T shirts every day, ones we got in Florida so nobody else had them. He got a few comments from CM's about them.

I would say... where what ever costume you want charecter interaction with. When ben worse buzz he got amazing meet with buzz... out of 30 odd children buzz went straight to ben... due to costume. When we wore peter pan... same thing!

i think for boys, buzz and peter pan most popular... but there is also stitch, pirattes, winnie the pooh etc. But if your boy is like mine, buzz/woody or peter pan are the winners!

We are going in the beginning of November and my 4 year old will want to dress up in her Snow White and Alice dresses. Is this going to be too cold or can you fit other layers in under the dress.
When going at this time of year do you just dress up for the character meals?

We have Peter Pan also,its a tunic pants and hat and shoes. its funny , we were looking at the Disney store this morning, but thought it will be too warm for some of them.

Critchk, when we we there in December, lots and lots of girls had their dresses on over their coats etc, it was so cute :)

Have to agree...when my son wore a full Jack Sparrow costume two years ago (including wig and drawn on moustache and goatee) he got a great interaction with Jack Sparrow who played and messed about with him for 10 mins!!

i have to agree about kids in costumes getting noticed more. on our first trip ash didnt wear her dress to see the parade and was stretching out to the characters but was past by. i noticed they were going to all the kids dressed up so i made sure she had a dress on after that and every single time we have watched the parade at least two princesses come over to her

Kyra never had a dress up on our first few trips and always got noticed, guess we was just lucky lol.

I've not really noticed that many children dressing up and most of those I have seen are girls.

As for getting noticed, DB doesn't dress up and has had some fantastic interaction including being singled out by Wendy in the parade who remembered him from an earlier meeting in Adventureland - she even remembered his name :goodvibes

There's a really nice hairy sully costume on ebay just now. My DD has one just like it and the hairy ones are so much better quality then the smooth ones:goodvibes (hope that makes sense)

I love the furry Sulley costumes - I have 3 one for DH, one for DD1 & one for DD2. All I need is one for myself, but I haven't seen another reasonably priced adult one on ebay since I bought one for DH. Where we live everyone dresses up for Halloween & goes into the town for a fireworks display. DH has got lots of interest in his Sulley costume!

Couldn't imagine taking them to DLP though - we'd need an extra 2 suitcases! By the way, Sulley is my favourite character.

Love it. Does your Hubby know you've posted his photo on here:rotfl:

Sully is one of my DD's favourites but I reckon we'd need a suitcase just for the costume. How cute would it be though to get a picture with Sully dressed like that:goodvibes

He loves wearing it because he gets so much attention & comments on Halloween night. Of the thousands of people that dress up that night, his is one of the best costumes and it looks so cute when the girls are there too in theirs.

Ha ha - that photo is classic Karen - I hope your DH doesn't mind you posting it! I just showed DH and he said 'Who is THAT?' so I explained and said 'Would you not dress up in one' and he said he would for DD1 (she loves Sulley and out of all the soft toys at DLP she picked a Sulley one to bring home last trip - he lives in her bed!!). :goodvibes

The costumes are fab :thumbsup2

Whenever I look on ebay I never find any good Disney costumes for some reason - obviously looking in the wrong place/not searching properly :confused:

I bought the adult one off ebay.com & had to pay to get it shipped from America - I think I had a bit of a mad moment! I have never seen one on the UK site.
