Dapper Day at Disney World
By Jeanette Scott
Remember the "old days" where people would dress up in gorgeous, elaborate outfits complete with hats? Well now you can experience some of that same fun at Dapper Day at Disney World on Saturday, Sept. 8 in Orlando. It is a wildly fun gathering at the park where people dress up in anything sophisticated and elegant, from vintage to contemporary chic - it doesn't matter the time period, anything glamorous is encouraged.
The first Dapper Day at Disney World was held in Feb. 2011 and this year the event organizers expect more than a thousand people to participate. To attend the gathering in Orlando
, simply show up on Saturday Sept. 8 at Disney's Hollywood Studios park from 4-9 p.m. and/or Disney's Boardwalk Resort for "After Dapper Drinks" and dancing from 9 p.m. until close.
Dapper Day is an independently organized social gathering neither operated by nor associated with The Walt Disney Company. However, a special group-rate is available and after 4 p.m. park tickets are $55 only online via DapperDay.com
. This is not a private event, and the park is open as usual with the "dapper" crowd mixing in. You can see stylish photos from past events on the Dapper Day website as well.
