I think it is fair to say this is just a bad and uncouthed idea all around. Even if intentions are innocent, you are interacting in a way with guests who are on a vacation, possibly once in a life time.
If this was just for your family or friends as they enter the hotel room or something, that is quite different. Still not the wisest thing on property, but not has damaging.

Hold on.

It is unclear (at least to me) whether the original poster is asking (granted, on a WDW focused website) is he/she would be wearing the "uniform" at TOT, some Disney hotel, or somewhere else (Hamptonality to the extreme) and whether this is a onetime Halloween prank or a planned ongoing escapade.

It’s pretty clear to me. The OP asked specifically about opening a hotel door. Asked if there was a Dis policy against it. Stated that it was difficult to take a photo at Disney and not include others. Had responded to a couple of others statements and had not stated they are doing this at a hotel outside of Disney.
So this is being planned at Disney. If it isn’t then OP please respond and state differently.

Oh, I have no doubt it's authentic. And I assume whoever "retained" it took out the RFID tag. I mean, it's a cool item for your collection. But you have to know it was likely taken or retained without permission. So I'd keep it under wraps. I have just recently seen a few pieces of Disney wardrobe for sale on Ebay. I'm sure those are stolen or "retained" without permission as well.
Retired costumes are sold at property control all the time. They can ABSOLUTELY be obtained by cast members legitimately. Now, the cast member shouldn't have been reselling them, but getting it in the first place is fine.

That said, in response to OP, do not do this. You're not part of the show. Don't engage other guests like you are.

So years ago I purchased an actual former castmembers uniform from the Tower of Terror. I know that WDW parks will NOT allow people to dress in real or even similar costumes to actual uniforms worn by castmates. I would like to video people's reactions to having a TOT bellhop opening their hotel door for them. Is there a policy barring this? Has anyone else tried this? I figure the worse that can happen is that the hotel may ask me to leave the premise.
How about no and don't record my children.... We would have serious issue....

I understand in today’s world all the suspicion. Thanks for the comments. I have recently retired and looking for fun things to do and create Youtube content sharing whatever fun i might be able to capture.

Good luck to you, but this isn't a great idea. Don't be too turned off by people's reactions. If you have a good idea, people are very supportive and will do their best to help you make it the best.

Yea, don't do this. Especially if you plan on doing it in the theme parks. you are not an employee, not part of the show. Disney allows recording for private family use but there is a major debate on people who think they can come in to the park and film there for paid content. it's still private property. I am sure you mean well, but this has been one of my pet peeves with some of the more zealous 'Disney adults' the last few years. Finding almost exact replicas of costumes, specifically princess costumes, to wear in the park to get reactions or tik tok clicks. I don't find it fun, I find it annoying and filled with audacity. And if you plan on doing it on non Disney hotels, then watch because now you are dressed as a very iconic Disney cast member and people could mistake you for one. God forbid something happen and Disney gets the blame or they want to try and sue you for infringement.

It's great you want to try and make social media content, but try and do it without using other people's IPs or property.
