Disneyland Resort’s Fall Dapper Day dazzles guests in timeless Disney style

Dapper Day

Thousands of park guests stepped out in style this weekend at the Fall 2018 Dapper Day at Disneyland Resort. And this year, the looks were better than ever.

Twice a year, Dapper Day encourages Disney fans and fashion lovers to dress to the nines and celebrate style in a weekend-long event at Disneyland Resort. The event features a Dapper Day Expo at the Disneyland Hotel and a Dapper Day outing in Disneyland, during which guests of all ages dress up in their best dapper attire to celebrate the golden age of Disney.

Back during the first years of Disneyland’s opening, visiting the theme park was a special occasion, in which guests dressed in their Sunday best to visit Walt’s original Magic Kingdom. Dapper Day at Disneyland is an effort to bring back that tradition of “stepping out in style” and welcomes guests to dress how they feel best, whether by wearing vintage-inspired pieces or contemporary twists on their favorite Disney characters. The event began at Disneyland in 2011 and has since expanded to Walt Disney World and even Disneyland Paris.

The bi-annual Dapper Day Expo is a marketplace of fun, refined, and vintage style, as stated on the event’s website. With admission priced at just $10, the expo is a can’t-miss event for long-time Dapper Day participants and new fans. This year’s expo took place during the Saturday and Sunday of Dapper Day weekend, and it featured live musical performances and vendor booths selling vintage- and Disney-inspired goods.

While guests are welcome to interpret Dapper Day in any style they wish, many take it as an opportunity to showcase their Disney style through DisneyBounding, the act of dressing in similar colors and styles inspired by those of Disney characters or attractions. No matter what period, character, or style your Dapper Day look is inspired by, just the act of coming out and spending the weekend with other Dapper Day enthusiasts is worthwhile.

Here are some of our favorite looks from Fall 2018 Dapper Day at Disneyland Resort:

This Dumbo and Timothy look makes our hearts soar.

This “Lady and the Tramp” trip features the couple’s daughter dressed as the spaghetti.

This dynamic duo celebrated our favorite chipmunk pair and gave us all the “Rescue Rangers” vibes.

We loved seeing this entire family of Mouseketeers!

And who doesn’t love a new take on our favorite nanny, Mary Poppins?

Fall 2018 Dapper Day at Disneyland Resort was a hit, but for those of you who couldn’t make it, not to worry! The Fall 2018 Dapper Day at Walt Disney World Resort is returning this month from November 16 – 18. The Walt Disney World Dapper Day weekend festivities will take place throughout the resort, beginning at Disney Springs and expanding to three of the resort’s theme parks this year: Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, and Epcot.
