THE Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida is known as one of the most magical places on earth.
Their annual Dapper Day celebration is one of their biggest days of the year and often sees tourists trading in their shorts and t-shirts for suspenders, dresses and bowties.
What is Dapper Day in Disney World?
Dapper Day is known as a two-day celebration at Disney World hosted by the Dapper Day organization.
It is known as one of their most famous days of the year and is often celebrated by wearing the styles of yesterday and today.
The organization was founded by Los Angeles designer Justin J. who states that the motivation behind the celebration was his desire to "dress up without everyone looking at [him]."
" I liked visiting Disney’s parks, they’re rich with attention to detail, color, and exquisite gardens," the designer wrote on his website.
"I also liked clothes, often very colorful clothes, and suits (also usually colorful). And this interest of mine would often draw unwanted attention wherever I went (which was usually by myself). So I needed to find more places where I could blend in with other 'dressed up' people–or create those places myself."
The day is typically celebrated by showing up to the park in your stylish looks "from vintage classics to chic, contemporary looks," active and retired service members are also encouraged to dress in their uniforms, according to the website.

When was the first Dapper Day celebration?
2021 marks Dapper Day's 10th anniversary.
The first event was held back in February 2011, after Justin "put out the call and encouraged anyone who wanted to 'step out in style' to join [him] for a day at the park."
Since then, the day has been celebrated at Disney World, Disney Land and Disney Land Paris.
