DAPPER DAY Events at Disney parks celebrate the tradition of stepping out in style, and were partly inspired by the original Disney park designer's illustrations which often featured dapper guests enjoying the park.
These guests appeared dressed for a day of sophisticated entertainment, men in sharp suits, toddlers working two-pieces, and ladies looking like a page from Dior's sketchbook - all as if a visit to Disneyland were on par with a night at the opera. And why shouldn't it be? That's what DAPPER DAY Events at Disney Parks is about, realizing those designer's dreams that, for one day at least, Disney Parks be experienced as the upscale escape that it is, filled with fashionable guests ready for fun.
Interpret this however you like. Our gatherings are neither a strict period recreation of the past nor a costume event (there are many other gatherings for that). Dapper Day Events are meant to showcase you at your best, and all sophisticated fashions from vintage-inspired classics to chic contemporary looks are welcome.
Active and retired military are encouraged to wear your dress blues if you like (this too was a tradition that has sadly faded).
During DAPPER DAY Events at Disney Parks, you bring those Imagineer's illustrations to life when you become those well dressed guests the designers imagined (or hoped) would be filling the park. We look forward to seeing all of you, and you first-timers will experience a day in the park unlike any you've ever had.
