We’ve talked before about how going DisneyBound to the parks is becoming a thing. And we think the trend is picking up steam. There are a couple factors to this:
- Social media. It’s so easy to share your daily life on social media, especially movies or pictures, so why not go that extra step if you’re a Disney fan and show your love via the outfit you’re wearing.
- Dapper Days. The fan-led bi-coastal event encourages guests to dress in their finest when they visit the parks. Although it started out as more of a throwback event, it’s morphed to include DisneyBounding outfits too. The same thing bled over into the 24hr days too.
- Acceptance of Geek Culture. There is a wider acceptance of geek culture, including Cosplay, in the US. With the latest generations practically weened on the internet, I expect geek culture to become an even bigger part of the nation’s social fabric.
But there is a difference between Cosplay and Disney Bounding. Here’s Leo Camacho to help explain the difference
Here’s a video from Babes in Disneyland showing how easy clothes at a vintage-inspired clothing shop can be made into Disney Bound outfits.
And of course, there’s Leslie Kay, who started it all at DisneyBound.com, in an official Disney Style video showing how it’s done:
I love how even some of the more obscure Disney characters come out during Disney Bound trips. Are you ready to go Disney Bounding on your next Disney visit, or heck, even at the mall? (Do people still visit malls?)
