Costumes are encouraged, but they are subject to Disney's costume guidelines. And keep in mind that at the time of writing, masks are still required indoors, on Disney transportation and on many attractions for everyone ages 2 and up — regardless of your vaccination status. While it's possible these rules will change by the time of your trip, it's best to plan for them to still be in place.

Tickets go on sale today, Sept. 14, at 9 a.m., and as mentioned earlier, capacity is limited. If you're hoping to deck the halls on Main Street U.S.A. this year, you'll want to grab your tickets as soon as possible.
