Disneyland played host to the fifth Dapper Day event on 2014 February 22 and 23. Dapper Day is an unofficial “fashionable gathering” held a couple of times a year at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. Dapper Day turns back the clock to a time where people would only be seen out in public in their finest most dapper attire.
The most recent Disneyland event featured two days of informal meet ups. In total more than 20,000 people dressed in their best to attend Disneyland Dapper Day 2014. Unsuspecting people visiting the Disneyland park that day were almost outnumbered by those in Dapper Day attire–this was the most amount of people to ever attend a dapper event.
On our Disneyland_Secrets Instagram account we asked our fans to tag their best Dapper Day photos with #DapperDose. We had an enormous response and have included some of the best photos sent our way below.

Fans Met Up on the Mark Twain For the Swankiest Trip Around the River…Ever
A swarm of the fanciest people you ever seen in Disneyland appears out of nowhere. What time is it? It’s time for the Mark Twain mixer.

Here lindy_munster poses in front of Tom Sawyer island on what must of been a glorious day weather wise.
It was the Perfect Opportunity to Disney Bound
Originally invented by the unofficial Tumblr page, Disney Bound is a way for Disney fans to visit the park representing their favorite characters without wearing a costume. (Costumes are not allowed for adults because people could confuse them with Disney Cast Members.)
At the event there were numerous fun Disney Bounding attempts:
A couple of people tried to be Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. Here is a fun picture by disneylandfans.
Jane from Tarzan was presented by shannon_the_disney_princess. I believe that is Turk along with her.
This photo by greciaelisa represents one of my favorite Pixar Short films ‘Blue Umbrella.’
Here’s brianchase13 in his best Red and Yellow imitating the big man himself, Mickey Mouse.
This is perhaps my favorite photo sent to us by beetanz from Instagram. Here Aurora and Prince Phillip pose in the scenic Golden State trail in Disney California Adventure.
This photo of alyyyfornia is beautifully put together and highlights the Sherman Brother’s window on Main Street. I’m not sure if she is Disney Bounding, but I see a Mary Poppins inspired outfit if she is.
Snazzy Snack Break
This picture deserves it’s own heading…when was the last time that someone looked this good eating a Disneyland Mickey Mouse premium ice cream bar. Yum! This photo is by Katie_brady.
Return to Yesteryear
No one is quite sure what should actually be worn to Dapper Day, therefor you will see people coming in outfits varying from the Disney inspired ones above to a return to the classic clothing of the past years.
The joys of Dapper Day: the classic Army look returns in this photo from ohhirach.
This yellow dress that instagracia is sporting is the perfect thing to be wearing for an excursion into Disney California Adventure’s newest land Cars Land.
Even the youngest kids took part in the event. See here in Disneylandfans photo.
Suspenders and a bow tie were the norm for most men visiting on this gorgeous Dapper Day. This is my photo from Disneyland_Secrets. (Please follow us there for the most interesting Disneyland Secrets).
