Stepping out in Style
Dapper days in Walt Disney World are eclectic and so much fun! It is a semi annual celebration of “Stepping Out In Style”. This is an unofficial Disney Event that was started in 2011. This will be my third year participating. You can see so many different eras represented with the bulk being the 1950’s. Disney bounding has become very popular. That is when your outfit is inspired by a character – like wearing purple and flowers in your hair for Rapunzel.
Last year, Joe and I got inspired by a billboard in Hollywood Studios. I love the details in Disney!
I’m looking for inspiration and it’s twice as hard because this year Dapper Days will be a 2 day event. Magic Kingdom will be dressed up on April 29th and Epcot will get fancy on April 30th. I wonder if we will see futuristic or ethnic outfits for Epcot’s distinct lands?
We could go with a classic favorite like Lucy & Ricky from I Love Lucy or maybe a Mary Poppins themed day? Marvel themed outfits were very popular last year. There is no age limit to the dress up fun. I’ve seen families all dress to a particular theme, young people and older couples. Pinterest is so full of many wonderful ideas. Most are so easy to do, also.
Quite often, families will be on vacation and have no idea about Dapper Days. They will find out shortly before and not prepare ahead of time. It’s nice to see them wearing their Sunday best outfits. Don’t forget to ask for a pin to Celebrate the day!
I hope you get to enjoy Dapper Days!
