What Can You Wear to Galaxy’s Edge? Disney sets the “Bounding” Rules and Dress Code

What can you wear to Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge? Disney has just cleared up the bounding rules and dress code for the newest land in Walt Disney World and Disneyland, and has said you what you CAN and CAN’T wear while visiting.

Of course Disney wants guests to have fun and live out their own Star Wars adventures when visiting Galaxy’s Edge, but at the same time there has to be some restrictions on what type of clothing is allowed and not.

Whether you’re against the First Order and working with the Resistance; running secret smuggling missions, or a normal villager in Black Spire Outpost, the same rules that apply to the Disneyland/Disney World Dress Code and their rules for bounding, apply also in Star Wars Galaxys’ Edge.

While costumes may not be worn by guests 14 years of age or older, appropriate bounding—dressing in outfits inspired by Star Wars—is permitted. The following guidelines will help you arrive to Batuu in style. Proper footwear must be worn. 

What type of clothing is permitted in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge?

These are examples of what type of clothing attire is permitted in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge:

Galaxy's Edge Dress Code and Bounding Rules
  • Bounding: piecing together traditional clothing items that when worn together, serve as a recognizable tribute to Star Wars characters
  • Batuuan attire: wearing outfits inspired by the villagers of Batuu—muted tones, vests, layers, etc.

Guests can still participate in bounding in Galaxy’s Edge, but as you can see from the photos, simple costumes which aren’t bulky and don’t drag on the ground or hide the guest’s face are acceptable attire for visiting Galaxy’s Edge.

What clothing is not acceptable to wear in Galaxy’s Edge?

Instead here is the type of clothing and bounding that is not allowed in Galaxy’s Edge:

Galaxy's Edge Dress Code and Bounding Rules what not to wear
  • All robes or military-style attire
  • Masks, face paint, elaborate headwear, blasters or holsters (lightsabers are allowed) or hard items such as body armor, helmets or kneepads
  • Full character suits

Disney isn’t trying to ruin anyone’s fun from bounding, but at the same time for the practical reason not getting in other guests’ way and for security reasons, Disney doesn’t want robes, elaborate face paint, masks or body armor inside Galaxy’s Edge, just like the Disneyland bounding rules.

Again this applies to guests 14 years of age and older. If you are bringing younger kids with you who are under 13, they can dress however they prefer, even in more elaborate costumes.

Unfortunately some of the items sold in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge cannot be worn inside the land, like the $750 Kylo Ren Mask or the Full Stormtrooper. To enjoy those collectibles fully, you’ll need to bring them home and enjoy them outside of Disneyland/Disney World and Galaxy’s Edge.

These rules are in the best interests of all guests and made to keep everyone safe and to ensure that everyone has a great time in Galaxy’s Edge. You can read our Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Review here, and the estimated wait times when you are in.

Oh this makes me so sad. Can I wear a Princess Leia dress? I mean it’s basically just a white dress but I don’t want them to make me change.

“Bounding” is a lot of fun and I love that they will allow it to spill into Batuan style dress. With all of the safety concerns about shootings I applaud Disney for prohibiting body armor, capes and cloaks that could conceal weapons and realistic looking fake weapons. This is a place to feel safe and happy, not to have to worry whether the dude next to you in the cantina bar has a real gun tucked away in his armor. Yay! For a place where even adults can pretend, but we can all feel safe

You have to pass park security to get to Galaxy's Edge. No can smuggle in a firearm into GE via a robe. There is no reason not to allow robes, especially when they sell the damn things.

I can understand being safe, but I would think that an adult Star Wars park needs to be made then. Adults equally wanna have a good time, getting deep into the universe that is Star Wars. Sure, conventions might be fun. But role playing in Star Wars, in a park devoted to it, is much more rewarding.

Having no kids means I’m not looking to bring a 14 year old or younger, I am the “kid” at heart that wants to rock my awesome costume. I do get how people could misuse costumes for evil purposes. But perhaps the employees should have a badge to show authenticity. It is also hypocritical that they sell very expensive items in the park, but do not allow them to be used in the park. Some items even impossible to get on a plane. Which is to say, you gotta spend extra money driving, on top of the money you spend for the item.
