Dapper Day: An Evening Affair

Let's join the "Dapper Day" crowd and visit Disneyland in style! Twice a year there are Dapper Day gatherings at both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts: a spring, all-day event, and a fall "evening affair."

Inspired by the original Disney designer's illustrations, which often featured extremely well dressed guests enjoying the park, Dapper Day events celebrate the tradition of stepping out in style. Any elegant fashions, from period "Mad Men" looks to the latest haute couture, are encouraged.

No special tickets are required, as these are not private events.

You can find more information, including plenty of pictures of "dapper" style dress, at the original website at http://www.DapperDay.com/

["Dapper Day" is an independently organized social gathering neither operated by nor associated with The Walt Disney Company. ]

Our friends from the Disneyland Pulse will also be there, and we look forward to seeing them in all their dapper finery! http://www.meetup.com/The-Disneyland-Pulse/events/55192432/

We will be meeting at 6:00 pm at the flagpole in Town Square just inside the Disneyland entrance.

High points of the evening may include:

* Dining at the Carnation Cafe on Main Street. If you're interested in joining us for dinner, please leave a note in the comments for this event so we can get enough reservations.

* "Horse racing" on the King Arthur Carousel.

* Riding on the Mark Twain riverboat (assuming it's operating that evening).

This is always a real fun event, and we really hope you can join us!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone! You may have read the message from the Dapper Day organizers that they are now expecting a few thousand people; so if our party wants photos on the carousel (or just ride), we should go whenever we can, keeping in mind that area is closed about an hour before & after fireworks. I'm hoping someone wants to do that 'cause it would make awesome photos :)

    Current (Saturday 8/25) count seems to be 18 total, with 10 (John, Alan, Brenda, Denise +1, Michael, Sylvia, Saralyn, Laura and Ann Elle) opting for the 6:20 pm dinner at Carnation Cafe. Mary and I will be happy to join the rest on a leisurely stroll around Walt's little amusement park and we can meet up with the diners when they've finished their repast.
