Disney Bound, it’s becoming a thing

Disney Bounding as Perry the Platypus at 24 hour day

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.

Newsies Fan Week

Disney’s Newsies was only supposed to have a 100 day run on Broadway, but it’s now been playing more than 5 times that long. Everyone at the production will tell you could not have done it without the support of their fans. So it’s great to see them turn around the lens and recognize that support with a video that includes fans from around the world (including the cast of The Lion King shown above). I love how they worked the lyrics of King of New York into this tribute too:

A Disney fan has lovingly created his own replica model of the Magic Kingdom’s Cinderella Castle and then designed a digital projection show just like they have now on the real castle. The replica is 71cm tall and is molded out of styrene and polyurethane.

I love obsessed Disney fans, they can do some amazing things.

A similar fan made digital projection from Disneyland Paris’ Disney Dreams below the jump:
