Thanks to the magic of Disney, it’s easy to come up with a stunning solo look, a best friend costume, or a huge group Halloween costume, including costume ideas for kids if you have little ones at home.

Winnie the Pooh Halloween Costume
If you or one of your family members loves Winnie the Pooh, consider going as the adorable stuffed bear this Halloween. All you need is a yellow skirt, a red shirt, and a yellow beanie. If you’re a new parent and looking for the sweetest baby costume idea ever, dress your little one as Pooh’s favorite thing in the Hundred Acre Wood: a pot of honey.
Shego Halloween Costume
Tap into your dark side this Halloween by going as a villainess. Shego from Kim Possible is a slightly unexpected but very cool choice. To get the look, you’ll also need some black and green face paint. If Shego isn’t quite your thing, try these other easy face paint ideas for a showstopping look.
Cruella Halloween Costume
We can give you 101 reasons why you should be Cruella this Halloween! Make sure you don’t forget to wear a black and white wig (her signature hairdo). And if you want to coordinate with your pack, have them dress as Dalmatians. They can even DIY those looks by wearing white sweatsuits and adding black spots with fabric paint. Got a pup you want to dress up as something other than a Dalmatian? You can’t go wrong with one of these clever dog Halloween costumes.

Captain Marvel and Captain America Halloween Costume
Calling all superheroes! Don’t forget: The MCU is part of Disney, which means the sky (and the universe) is the limit as far as costumes go. This Captain Marvel look is perfect solo or with Captain America as your sidekick. If you’re not looking to save the day, go the opposite route with Thanos or one of these scary Halloween costumes.
Alice in Wonderland Halloween Costume

For this Disney Halloween costume, you’ll need a sky-blue dress with a white, apron-like overlay, a giant bow, and some knit tights. The perfect accessory? A stuffed white rabbit with a pocket watch, of course! For more classic looks, check out these vintage Halloween costumes.

Being Mary Poppins is a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious DIY Disney costume idea! Here are the easy-to-find costume components you’ll need to gather: a black skirt, black tights, a white button-up, a red ribbon, a brim bowler hat, a black umbrella, and a large bag.
Hocus Pocus Halloween Costume
Witches and Halloween go hand-in-hand, and if you’re a ’90s kid, you won’t be able to resist dressing as the Sanderson sisters from Hocus Pocus, a classic (and very quotable) Halloween movie. To pull this off, you’ll need a corset in your character’s outfit color, a long-sleeve shirt, and a couple of different maxi skirts to layer and cut up a bit. For more ideas (or just some not-so-scary fun), curl up on the couch with these Disney Halloween movies.
The Ashleys from Disney’s Recess Halloween Costume
You and your besties won’t have to spend a dime if you dress up as The Ashleys. If you don’t have quite the right gear to pull off these animated characters, shop in one another’s closets for plaid skirts, sweater vests, yellow sweaters, pink dress shirts, and all the fixings.
Zenon and Nebula Halloween Costume
Cetus-Lupeedus! Go for some throwback DIY Disney costumes, like Zenon and Nebula from the 1999 Disney Channel movie. You’ll need a pink turtleneck and pink leggings for both characters, as well as a blue skirt and blue blazer if you’re going as Zenon or a purple skirt and purple jacket if you’re going as Nebula.
1950s Minnie and Mickey Halloween Costume
There’s no more iconic duo than Mickey and Minnie, and you can up the cool factor by going retro. To create this look, you’ll need a white sweater and an “M” patch you can iron (or sew) on, a red skirt (or tulle skirt), a red polka-dotted necktie, and Minnie ears. Your Mickey will need a red varsity jacket, a Mickey patch, a white shirt, black jeans, and Mickey ears. Teenage lovebirds might adore this idea, or you might want to show them these super cool teen costumes.
The Emotions from Inside Out Halloween Costume
If you’ve been feeling all the feelings over the past year and a half of pandemic life, any of these Inside Out costumes will cleverly express that.

Merida Halloween Costume
The key to a great Merida costume is the hair! So if you don’t have naturally red curly locks, you can find a wig that resembles her iconic ‘do. Then, all that’s left is for you to get is a long-sleeved green dress, a brown belt, some brown boots, and a bow and arrow to become the Brave heroine for the night.
Toy Story‘s Rex Halloween Costume
If you’re looking for a COVID-safe costume that puts some distance between you and everyone else, go as this super friendly T. rex! The inflatable jumpsuit has a battery-operated, air-inflating fan and comes with a pair of gloves, too. By the way, this is what time trick-or-treating starts.
Sleeping Beauty Halloween Costume
The first rule of Halloween shopping: When it comes to buying a costume, you snooze, you lose. You’ll want to nab this pretty Aurora getup while you can, but if you wait too long, it’s still OK—you can DIY it with a pink thrift-store dress, a blonde wavy wig, and a crown.

Set sail this Halloween as Jack Sparrow, captain of the Black Pearl. He’s the ultimate cool pirate and a must if Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride is your all-time favorite.
