For the Mickey's Halloween Party veterans - how nonrealistic does a toy weapon have to be to be allowed on a costume?
I have a gun similar to this http://media.photobucket.com/image/recent/chrylper/MiniAK47-2.jpg but there is actually a lot more orange on it. I can't remember where exactly, but it's about half the gun, and there is no wood styling like in the picture.
It doesn't shoot anything, just lights up and makes sound.
ETA: I found a pic of my gun on fb, and there is no pistol grip. The entire stock before the magazine is orange, and the barrel has lights in it to (not solid black like this). So it doesn't look like a real gun in the slightest, expect in its shape. The barrel is also thicker than the one pictured. I'd be more confident bringing mine in than the one I linked. I just don't know how strict Disney is, being Disney and all.
Toy makers are actually required to use fluorescent orange or yellow on their toy guns. It's always on the tip of the barrel of the gun. This is to make it easier for law enforcement to identify a fake gun, and reduce accidental shootings. I got this info from a friend that handles real and fake firearms for the movie industry. - ScooterMike

I know, but is it enough for Disney, or do they only allow rayguns? - Romans5Three 3.6 #16171 11:07AM

WEll I just called...... the lady was very nice and she said honestly She can not give me a straight answer and it will be gate person judgment. She said what she would suggest is zero sharp object aka no bows.... but the other part should be okay:-/.... I guesse if they wont let me bring it in..... i could always just drop it off at lost and found abd pick it up later hahaha - BooEve123 800.3 #115 11:26AM
You should def make it, because even if you can't bring it in, I'm sure you can find other uses. I've already used the gun for a GI Joe costume at a birthday party last week. Plus my husband has been fun scaring the cats with it. lol - Romans5Three 3.6 #16171 11:34AM
Use your best judgement and go have a fun Mickey's Halloween Party. - MyPark

My husband went dressed as Indy. He had a whip on his side and the CM told him he couldn't bring it in. The only reason they allowed him (assuming) to bring it in was because he informed them he purchased it at the park! - firemomof2

there is an app for the whip... pocket whip and it is indy...i just love it. - Plumiegirl 3322.4 #10 11:36AM
Even when you buy them in the park you're told not to open them because they can technically be considered a weapon. It depends on how picky the bag check is. - lostgirl7988 541.3 #208 11:40AM
An app! I'll have to download it and switch it between a whip and a light saber! Thanks! Lol! - firemomof2 128.4 #2598 4:10PM
If it's so questionable, why bother with it? I'm not saying to take or don't take it but will it make or break your costume? - firemomof2

To me, it's not questionable, but I don't know how Disney is.
I feel like it makes the costume. Before I found this, I was thinking of using a watergun, which i would think would be less acceptable since I could squirt people.
I think it will be fine, but it'd be a hassle to go back to the car so I want to be sure. Thanks. - Romans5Three 3.6 #16171 11:16AM
I think there's lockers outside the gates by guest services. If they say no, put it in there. Therefore, you won't have to go back to the car. - firemomof2 128.4 #2598 11:21AM
UPDATE: all was well. No problems either bringing it in or playing with it in the park. - Romans5Three
