What To Wear To Disney World

what to wear to disney world

What to Wear to Disney World is one of my all-time most popular blog posts so I thought it was high time for a repost. If you’re considering a trip to Disney World and are flummoxed by what to wear, I hope you’ll find this helpful. I try to keep the shopping links updated (affiliate links are used to help offset the cost of running this site) but if you find any that are defunct, let me know so I can fix them.

Let’s start out with what NOT to wear. Pleeeeease DO NOT wear this. Anywhere.

Disney is certainly no fashion mecca, but that’s no reason to throw all sense of style to the wind. You really can be cute AND comfy at a theme park. It just takes a little bit of thought and planning.

Not to get all judgey, but I always marvel at some of the outfits people choose to wear to amusement parks. There’s always the sweet young thing in a strapless dress and heels, teetering around the park as if it’s a nightclub.

Then there’s the fanny-pack brigade. (Please don’t let that be you!)

And way too many people look like they pulled out their oldest tee-shirt and leggings just for the occasion.

I know it’s not all about how you look, but really, how difficult is it to put some thought into what you’re wearing? After all, even if you don’t care that you’re going to run into approximately 25,000 people in a day, those photos are going to be around for years.

I’ve been to Disney World three times, now, with my family of five, so I’ve got it pretty much down to a science.

You’ll be doing a TON of walking, so you want to be comfortable. But you also know that there will be a lot of photographic evidence of the event, so you want to look cute.

You also want to be prepared for anything — a random rain shower, an errant spray of ketchup, a leaky toddler . . . so you need a bag that can accommodate all your gear.

Here is an example of a great theme park outfit…

RocksBox Review and Unboxing

rocksbox-square

I love trying new jewelry and adding new pieces to my collection, but I have to admit that I’ve become a bit overwhelmed with the sheer amount of jewelry I’ve acquired in the past few years, especially since doing Daily Mom Style posts and wanting more variety in my wardrobe. Most of my choices have turned out…

Coffee Talk #OldSchoolBlogging

It’s another Saturday morning and I’m having the same internal debate that I have every morning. Do I sit here and have another cup of coffee and start blogging or do I get off my duff and put on some workout clothes and go for a walk/run or bike ride? It used to be a…

Join Me in Philadelphia at The Color Run!

Last fall I ran my first Color Run with a group of friends. The Color Run is dubbed “The Happiest 5K on the Planet” and I have to say it lived up to all that. I’ve run plenty of 5Ks, but I am always running to challenge myself and improve my time. While I’m always exhilarated at the end,…

The Gift of Giving #LifeIsASpecialOccasion

gifts

Gifts are my love language. I’ll just say it. Sometimes I feel vain or selfish admitting that, but it’s the way I’m wired. I love getting gifts, and I love giving them as well. When I know a friend is feeling blue, the first thing I think of is getting a gift to hopefully brighten her day. The…

The Battle of the Bulge and Dressing the Body You Have

casual mom style

I’m going lay it all out here today and be completely honest with you. I’m struggling with my weight right now. I know, no one wants to hear the skinny girl complain about her weight, but I also feel that it’s rather disingenuous to post photo after photo of myself (only the ones that make me look good,…
