Don Your Best Duds for Dapper Day

Ever get the feeling you want to keep the shorts and flip flops in the hotel room and dress up to head out to the park? You're in luck. Dapper Day is coming up soon - a day for guests to don some dressier clothes to take in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

According to organizer Justin Jorgensen, the idea for Dapper Day came from spotting some old Imagineer drawings in which guests going to Epcot were dressed to the nines. His thought? "Wouldn't it be really great if just for once we could make these illustrations come to life?"

There's no real set dress code for Dapper Day; some don historic dress while others opt for bow-ties or more modern dress. The real draw is to be able to capture some special photo memories in dapper dress with DHS as a backdrop.

Dapper Day is set for September 8 from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Tickets cost $55 and can be obtained at the website, DHS will be open for its regular scheduled hours during Dapper Day. Look for the festivities to continue at Disney's BoardWalk after DHS has closed.

I adore this idea, but never seem to be at a Park when it's happening. My family always dresses a little nicer on vacation, and I think we'd do Dapper Day in smashing style!

When I was a kid, my family and I went to the New York World's Fair twice dressed up in our good clothing. I can't recall what my father wore, but my mother and us girls all wore dresses - for one trip, we even wore our best party dresses. That was the way most people did that sort of thing back then.

So anyway - been there, done that. I'm sticking with shorts and athletic shoes from now on. It's way more practical for touring a theme park (or a World's Fair, for that matter).

This sounds like a lot of fun to me. I would not want to do it in September though because of the heat. January would be a great time to do it. I think it would make for some really great pictures.

We will usually take a half a day one day and hit dtd, and then another half a day a different day playing mini golf. Now that the kids are getting older we may have to implement a water park day in the next couple years.

I was visiting the Studios on September 8th, and saw several people dressed up. They all looked SO GOOD! Especially the guys! My friend and I thought maybe people were dressed up for a private party, or a performance. We had no idea why they what was going on, but we loved their outfits. I think this is a great idea.
