What is Star Wars Bounding?

Planning a visit to Batuu and you want to dress the part? It is important to remember the Disney Costume Guidelines in effect at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. While we might be extremely excited to celebrate the opening of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge and we may want to “look the part” there are some do’s and don’ts that you need to be aware of.

Imagineers have said over and over again that Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is about us living our own Star Wars story. We get to explore, shop, eat, help Hondo smuggle some items using the Millennium Falcon and we are allowed to dress accordingly. These are some friendly reminders when you are planning that perfect outfit to wear on your visit to Batuu and the Black Spire Outpost (remember that children under 14 are allowed to use full costumes):

Permitted Attire:

  • 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.

Not Permitted Attire:

  • 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

So make sure to double check before you go. Nothing worse than spending time and money on a perfect outfit and then being denied entry into the parks because it’s violating costume guidelines. If you want to go all out I suggest looking into places like Salvation Army or Goodwill for inexpensive items that you can use for you Star Wars Bound. If you are not that crafty you can always look at sites like Etsy and Amazon for ready made outfits that fit your style…Till The Spire!
