It’s time to step out in your glass slippers and all your favorite finery because Dapper Day is back at Walt Disney World. This biannual event celebrates all things stylish and chic, adding extra pizzazz to your Disney trip. In 2020, Dapper Day at Walt Disney World Resort takes place May 1-3 and is perfect for couples, singles, and families of all ages who love looking their best.
What is Dapper Day?
Dapper Day was created by Justin J, a Los Angeles designer with an affinity for snazzy dress. The organization celebrates “fun, refined style from yesterday and today” at various outings throughout the year but they are best known for their Disney outings. There is no registration fee – simply show up. The fun begins on Friday, May 1 at the Dapper Day Weekend Kick-Off. On May 2, there is a Spring Outing at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, followed by another Spring Outing on May 3 at Epcot. In addition to the outings at the parks, this year’s Dapper Day will include a group dinner at Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show on May 2 at 8:15 p.m.
Tips for Celebrating Dapper Day in Orlando
Let Your Imagination Run Wild
Since Dapper Day looks aren’t confined to any particular era, you are welcome to mix and match. Sophisticated outfits from all eras are encouraged, and active as well as retired military are welcome to wear dress blues or service uniforms. Remember, the best outfits are the ones that showcase your own personal style.
Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize!
Accessorizing is key – not only to make your outfit pop, but to keep you safe from the elements. Springtime in Orlando includes a mix of sunshine, thunderstorms, and warm temperatures. Experiment with scarves, sunglasses, jackets, umbrellas, etc. for an outfit that will look great in all weather. If you need inspiration, visit the Dapper Day online shop where you’ll find classy Disney-inspired accessories that will perfectly compliment your elegant look.
Try a Disneybound Look
Since you’ll be at Disney World, why not create a fancy Disneybound look? Disneybounds are wearable outfits inspired by your favorite characters and can be casual or dressy, depending on the occasion. For instance, a chic outfit inspired by Mickey could feature his iconic black, red, and white color palette, as well as incorporate his yellow shoes or white gloves for a dapper ensemble.
