It’s summertime, which means tourist season in Florida. The beaches will be packed, as will the outlet malls and I-4. The one destination that’s at the top of most everyone’s to-do list in Florida is – no surprise – Disney World! And why wouldn’t it be? Everyone and their cousin is excited about Pandora and the new nighttime show at Magic Kingdom. But in between planning your fast passes and trying to find all the Instagrammable walls, what are you going to wear? Hakuna matata! Sorry, I couldn’t resist.😆Anyway, I’ve got some ideas of what to wear to Disney. First off, though, here are some general pointers to keep in mind in case these don’t float your boat:
- Wearing a dress or skirt to the parks is not completely unheard of. In fact, it’s a great option for the hot summer months. Just make sure it’s a comfortable fabric that’s easy to move around in. Also, be aware of the length. Some rides require you to climb up or down when entering and exiting the vehicle, so make sure everything’s covered.
- Racing around the parks is definitely going to feel like exercise. You may as well dress the part! And athleisure is such a huge trend that it should be fairly easy to shop for this look.
- You could opt for something more laid-back and comfy. It’s okay to move through the parks slowly and just let everything sink in. Dressing ultra comfortable can help you take it all in stride.
- If you want to wear jeans, do so at your own risk. It is very hot here! I’m not exaggerating. It may be a good idea to wear pants that are more breathable, like a drapey jogger. (Plus, you’ll regret wearing jeans after you get off Splash Mountain!)
- While these outfits were created with the aesthetic of each park in mind, they can easily transition from one place to the next if you’re park-hopping.
Now, on to the outfits!
When Animal Kingdom comes to mind, I automatically think about the spirit of adventure. I mean, there’s a safari and a wilderness trek there! But that doesn’t necessarily have to involve dungarees (although there’s nothing wrong with that!). You can totally wear a comfortable rayon skirt while wandering through Africa and Pandora.
Of all the parks, I think Epcot is the most sophisticated. I like this minimalist pattern mixing because it’s not super fancy, but it’s still polished.
I’ll be honest with you: Hollywood Studios is not an all-day park right now. It’s slowly transitioning into that, but while it’s still under construction, there’s not a whole lot going on. (Save your best outfit for another park!) Here’s something inspired by what’s coming in the future.
The creme de la creme! Magic Kingdom embodies a whole bunch of feelings, from Walt’s all-American childhood on Main Street, to the whimsy of Fantasyland, and just a general feeling of nostalgia while seeing familiar faces from your youth and humming along to all the songs you learned on the Sing-A-Long VHS tapes (weren’t those the best?!).
