Dapper Day at Disney!

Hey everyone, I’m Mike, she’s Sophie, and that’s not Brenda because she is enjoying time at Walt Disney World, and we’re On the Road with Mickey! This is Season 2, Episode 47 for November 22, 2021, and our feature topic is our Dapper Day at Disney! This past Saturday and Sunday were Dapper Days at Epcot and the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, and Sophie and I thought it would be fun to talk about it! Also, Sophie and I dressed for the episode (Sophie obviously better than I, but that’s no shocker) — if you want to see what we looked like on air, check out the YouTube video of the episode! Now, have a listen, and let us know in the comments what you think! Now, here’s the rundown of what we talked about:

  • Updates from Last Week
    • Last week, Brenda asked what are the best Christmas decorations at the parks and resorts. No surprise, the Magic Kingdom is the runaway winner so far! This is an open poll, so click here to vote and join us in the On the Road with Mickey Group on Facebook! Check out the comments on that link as well to see some of the great pictures of the decorations! https://www.facebook.com/groups/OnTheRoadwithMickey/posts/1299677170460789/

    • Sophie: Coming to Disney+ in 2023 — Tiana, a musical series where Princess Tiana is now the Princess of Maldonia!

  • Feature Topic: Dapper Day at Disney!
    • What are Dapper Days?
      • Dapper Days are days at the Disney parks where you can dress up in retro outfits to give tribute to a particular era. For example, dress up in clothing reminiscent of the 40s or 50s. 

    • Why does Disney have Dapper Days?
      • It’s not 100% known why they do it, but I think it is a way to have a day at Disney that is a throwback to another time. Almost like a way to remember what it would have been like to visit Disneyland in 1957 and see Walt Disney himself walking down Main Street, U.S.A.

    • When are Dapper Days for 2021 and 2022?
      • Walt Disney World, Saturday, November 20, 2021 at Epcot and Sunday, November 21, 2021 at the Magic Kingdom.
      • Disneyland, Saturday, April 23, 2022 and Sunday, April 24, 2022.
      • The last Dapper Days at Disneyland happened November 14th at Disneyland Park, with the Expo being the 13th and 14th at the Disneyland Hotel.
      • Walt Disney World, April 30 and May 1, 2022.

  • A little bit of Walt
    • “To all who come to this happy place: welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past…and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts which have created America … with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.” – Walt Disney
