This past Sunday was Dapper Day at Disneyland!
Dapper Day is an unofficial event that takes place at Disneyland twice a year. It’s an independently organized event (not hosted by Disney) that started a couple years ago. Participants are encouraged to dress up all fancy like for a day at the parks! If you look at photos of Disneyland from the 1950s, you’ll see everyone is dressed very nicely – dress shirts and ties for men, and skirts or dresses for women.
Disneyland used to be a place worthy of dressing up in your finest! (Kind of like air travel.) Now Disneyland is full of shorty shorts and flip flops (guilty). So once in a while it’s fun to get dolled up and enjoy the parks as previous generations did.
My day started by asking my social media peeps to help me pick an outfit – eep! I’m extremely indecisive.
Buena Vista Street at Disney’s California Adventure is the perfect backdrop for Dapper Day. We saw plenty of people dressed up.
I met up with my good pal Valerie and her stylish friends.
Some beary special friends joined us.
My little (in age only) bro also tracked me down! He was DisneyBounding as Donald and he did a great job on his outfit.
As we were headed out, we bumped into some other Disneyland brides, so we all posed for pictures in the lobby.
Dapper Day was so much fun and I can’t wait for the next event!
