Dapper Day: The Original Dandies and Darlings of Disneyland

Almost every single time I go to Disneyland, I dress for comfort. My makeup usually melts off within the first hour, and my hair is usually hidden under some type of hat. I couldn’t imagine wearing heels or keeping my makeup perfectly in place, but whenever I doubt if it’s possible to be completely stylish at Disneyland, I think back to men and women who visited Disneyland in the 50’s and 60’s and dressed up for the occasion. Their sense of style has inspired a yearly event held at various Disney parks called Dapper Day, where people come to Disneyland dressed in their Sunday best. As Disneyland celebrates Dapper Day today, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of my favorite stylings from the 50’s and 60’s.

Of all the different possible photos you could take in front of the castle, this one takes the cake. That coat! Those gloves!

Carousel of Progress...I think. I never actually saw Carousel of Progress or America Sings for that matter. Only Innoventions. So sad I missed the stylings of that wonderful spinning building.

This should be a commercial. This is perfection. I want to live in that picnic basket hanging out with this adorable little family.

This one is my favorite. The Columbia is my favorite ship at Disneyland, and I love that they incorporated it into this shot. Doesn't she look like she's ready to fly off to Neverland or hang out with the pirates?
