According to a Disney Parks Blog post, costumes may be worn by Guests 14 years of age and older from today through October 31 and must adhere to these guidelines:
To bring some Halloween party fun into the park this year, for the first time guests of all ages can wear your funniest, Disney-ist, most creative costumes during Magic Kingdom Park regular operating hours from Sept. 15 to Oct. 31. As an important reminder, costume masks are not permitted for adults; only children younger than 14 years old are permitted to wear costume masks.
While Disney does encourage creativity, they also value safety and good judgment. If you’re planning to attend these special events, take a moment to read over the latest rules and regulations:
