The Most Dapper of Days

Dapper Day is a huge celebration on the west coast, but on the east coast it's not as big. In case you don't know, Dapper Day is a day where you dress in nice (most of the time, old timey) clothes and go to the parks. It happens in Disneyland in California, and Hollywood Studios in Florida. The basic premise is that you're dressed nicely and you can ride your favorite rides and take a ton of pictures dressed to the nines. It usually happens twice a year - once in the spring, and once in the fall. Now, I don't personally own any old timey vintage clothing, so I made due with what I had brought with me to Florida, as did everyone else that we went with on the College Program. Some people had gone to shops to buy clothes, but I decided just to wing it (per usual). I ended up going with my roommate Sarah, and my friend Anne. We met a few other people at Hollywood Studios but mainly it was just us walking around and hanging out. 

Dapper Day, fall 2014, was a rainy, rainy day. Now we shouldn't have been surprised because it rains almost every (if not every) day in Florida, but for some reason none of us were prepared for the rain. We didn't bring any kind of rain jackets or any umbrellas, but it was still a fun day, nonetheless. 

I had heard of Dapper Day before, but never actually really looked into it, so I didn't realize how big of an event it actually was. Whenever we got there, we didn't realize how packed the park would be. Now, it was packed because of it being Dapper Day, but also all of the Frozen events were still going on at this time, so that added to the excitement for a lot of people. Now, many people know this, but some people don't, but I do awful in crowds. I have really bad anxiety when it comes crowds, and this day was no exception. The crowds on Dapper Day made me not really want to do too much, heck the Tower of Terror line was 240 minutes long. 

So after walking around and taking pictures, Sarah and I ended up leaving. Sarah had to go to work later that day, and I just wanted to go home and take a nap. Anne ended up staying with some friends, but all in all we had a great day. Dapper Day is something that I say everyone should try out at least once, if they have the opportunity.
