A couple of weeks ago the dappiest of the dappers put on their Sunday best and made their way to Disneyland for Dapper Day Spring 2016 and so with camera in tow we made our way to the Disneyland Hotel Exhibit Hall for the Dapper Day Expo. Surprisingly enough this was the first Dapper Day event that I personally attended and while there I was already planning for the next one (perhaps I’ll actually go into the park itself next time). You could seriously spend an entire day at the expo itself with its live music, dance lessons, and vendors. Afterwards go and have a meal or drink at the nearby Downtown Disney without even stepping a foot into the park (but we highly suggest you do as some of the photos we saw were fantastic) all day.
The Dapper Day Expo itself was open to the public and if you’re familiar with the convention scene, they opened up one of their halls for the exhibit hall which was packed with vendors, a stage, two on-site barber stations, a shoe shine station, and more. Here’s a shout out to a few of our favorite vendors at the event; our friends from Fez-o-rama (can’t wait to see that that new Cthulhu design), a selection of fine hats from Goorin Bros., and Dashing Debonaire with their collection of handmade pocket squares. Honestly though, they were all just fantastic and this would have just ended up becoming a huge list if we were to name them all.
At the end of the day we saw some wonderful outfits (loved some of those dapper Disney bounding ones), left with some Dapper Day branded goodies, and eager to return for the next one. The Dapper Day Fall Soirée of 2016 will be held on November 5th and 6th at Disneyland in SoCal with the Dapper Day Expo at the Disney Hotel again, or if you’re at Disney Paris it’s October 15th and on November 12th at Disney World in Florida.
