Maybe you’ve been in Disney World or Disneyland and noticed it – other guests looking stylish, dressy, maybe even as if they’ve stepped out of another (very fashionable) era.
If so, there’s a good chance that you were visiting a Disney park on Dapper Day!
Since 2011, Dapper Days have been held in Disney Parks. The idea is to celebrate “stepping out in style” – to have fun dressing up in sophisticated fashions, be it vintage or contemporary (as no specific time period is required). You can look through pictures from last fall or this past spring to get an idea of how some guests celebrated Dapper Day. These events are not associated with the Walt Disney Company, but they do take place in the Disney parks in Anaheim, Orlando and Paris.
Upcoming Dapper Days this fall include:
- Saturday, September 9 – Disneyland Paris
- Sunday, November 5 – Disneyland (in Anaheim, California)
- Saturday, November 18 – Magic Kingdom (in Walt Disney World in Florida)
- Sunday, November 19 – EPCOT (in Walt Disney World in Florida)
Additionally, a Dapper Day Expo will be held at the Disneyland Hotel Exhibit Hall in California. At the Expo, you can shop, meet designers, and dance to live music. Tickets are $10 (includes both days) for ages 13 and up, and children 12 and under get in free. Admission to the parks is not required, since the expo is held at the Disneyland Hotel. A free shuttle will run between the Grand Californian Hotel and the Disneyland Hotel Exhibit Hall. Dates and times are as follows:
- Saturday, November 4 – Noon to 7:00 PM
- Sunday, November 5 – 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM
So maybe you’re sold on attending one of these Dapper Days events, but you’re wanting to find the best deals available. We understand! Let’s see how you can save money and still have a blast.
