As a result of tightening security, Disneyland has updated its park rules, most notably adding that visitors 14-years-old and above cannot wear masks or costumes. Sorry, Cosplay lovers.

LAist adds that, in addition to the mandatory bag check line, "randomly selected guests will be screened by metal detectors at the parks' entrances, bomb-sniffing dogs will roam the parks, and toy guns will no longer be sold or allowed in."

Taking things one step further, the Happiest Place on Earth notes that it also doesn't allow "visible tattoos that could be considerate inappropriate, such as those containing objectionable language or designs." Body art fans, beware.

See the lengthy list of rules here.
