    For not being an official event, they sure are finding a few ways to make an extra buck off of it.

    Wow that sounds really snarky. I just find it amusing how much extra is going into something that isn't official.

    WDW is trying to make a buck off the Dapper Day people who are going to be there anyway. Makes perfect sense, and surprising it took so long.

    So people will dress "dapper" in the park? Men in trousers and ties? Women in dresses and 3 in. heels? Sounds like a plan. Kind of like casual Friday in reverse.

    Some people are totally into this. For me, nothing could be worse than having to "dress up" for a Disney park visit.

    Their is a part of me that sometimes forgets that even with all of the magic, Disney is first and foremost a business.

    We've been there for Dapper Days in the past (by accident, didn't even know what they were), and it is a lot of fun to watch the participants stroll through the park in their outfits. Kinda reminds us of growing up - though we never went to any Disney Park until we were adults. I'm talking about the way people used to dress. (And yes, we are life experienced sufficient to have partaken in real time back then.)

    Dapper day gave me a panic attack. I got hit with a cane, and prodded with someone's parasol. I felt like I had died and woken up in 1920. Power to the people who can pull it off!

    I have to work on Saturday at MK on the 29th so I'll be attending Epcot on Sunday the 30th instead. It will be my third Dapper Day. (I missed last November because of work.) It's so much fun! It's not about any specific period, though a lot of people gear towards a 40's/50's look, it's about "stepping out in style" in whatever form that is for you. A lot of people use the day to celebrate their love of Disney AND fashion and do special Dapper Disneybounds. (We were the inspiration for the new Dress Shop in Disney Springs.)

    It's more social event vs typical day in the parks. It's about seeing and being seen. Taking photos with people. Talking about lovely outfits, fashions, hairstyles, etc, It's about being creative and making a point to dress up and look good instead of the normal flip flops and tank tops that fill the park these days. Once upon a time, going to Disneyland was an event. You wore your Sunday best. It's nice to take a day or two each year to embrace that ideal again.

    Love dapper day and hate I'm missing it this year. I'm doing a male dapper cruella de vil for Halloween so I'll get to experience some dapper in my life either way.

    IMG_0273.JPG I have never been for the official event, but we often dress dapper for a night or two because it really is fun. I just wish Disney sold dapper male clothes, Ike they have the new dapper dresses.

    It's really cool, a lot of people go for period attire, classy three-piece suits, canes, top hats, bow ties, the whole shebang. After the usual sea of t-shirts, seeing women with parasols and men looking super dapper is a real treat. That said, as someone who's done the parks in a suit a few times, it gets hot!
