    Lookin' good in the neighborhood

    This might have asked before but: Watever happened to dressing up for Disneyland? It seems now nobody takes the time to look nice while visiting the park. I feel like I'm swimming in tye-dye, fanny packs and tank tops. (and it's not even the 80's) Now I'm not saying everone is like this, but a good portion is. What do you think? Yes, collared shirts please. Or no thanks, sleeves on shirts are for suckers.

    Sandals and Hawaiian shirts were invented.



    HOWEVER, i was at DLR a few years back and we saw this couple, and they were decked out in 50s gear, the girl had like a long pink skirt and sweater and the dude was wearing like one of those golf looking shirts with hair combed to the side, waiting in line for the sun wheel. It was really neat. I wanted to take a picture with them but I didn't know how to ask hah.

    Re: Lookin' good in the neighborhood

    When we enjoy meals at Club 33, we dress accordingly and so we wander through the Park dressed fairly nice. It's actually a nice feeling!

    We admire the folks from the old Vault Disney movies from the Park that showed how the folks dressed back in '55 and into the early 60's.

    It was a nice era!

    Where did the threads go that used to show (sometimes scary) pics of what some folks wear to the Park today?

    Those pics were always good for a laugh...

    I dress for comfort. Usually that means jeans, a tshirt, sweatshirt, and Vans. During the summer it's shorts, a tank top and rainbows.

    My best score ever!

    Re: Lookin' good in the neighborhood

    Formal and semi-formal wear probably isn't the most appropriate for a theme park and taking on rides and such, but surely there's nothing wrong with investing some effort into looking decent as opposed to slobby. As in clothes in good condition and not worn-out things you'd wear around the house. Risque is obviously a no-go, considering the family-friendly environment. Not condemning T-shirts, because at the least it's not fair to all the Disney-themed shirts in the stores, which are very much in place in the park. A little novelty isn't out of place either, as long as it's appropriate for the park: you're going to a place of fun.

    My usual in-park raiment is my best pair of jeans, polo shirt in good condition, and novelty hat.

    Re: Lookin' good in the neighborhood

    I really like seeing the old photos and videos of eras when people actually dressed up for the park, but I firmly believe in dressing for comfort (and some degree of propriety) in the park. A T-shirt, shorts, and sneakers will usually do it for me, plus a jacket if it's going to get chilly.

    i always dressed casual yet presentable and respectful everytime for Disneyland. You can really tell a tourist apart just by the way they dress with their tye dye shirts, fanny packs, flip flops, cut off shirts. i have nothing against tourist mostly, but they have awful style.

    I agree. I only look like a tourist when I am in my Disney stuff, but even then not as much as the fanny pack people.

    Re: Lookin' good in the neighborhood

    I don't get why fanny packs are being considered as fashion. (Some do, maybe, but...) They seem simply a practical thing, when you'll be in the park for many hours and have extra things you want/need, and don't want to haul around a backpack or don't have a stroller to store things in, or a purse, etc. I've considered it but normally carry few enough things that it isn't necessary.

    I can't fault tie-dye either, but that's just me, being a fan of it. But cheap flip-flops, cutoffs, icky T-shirts with logos of things that might not be that family-friendly, visible th***s (shudder) yeah, people can surely do better there, tourist or no.

    Re: Lookin' good in the neighborhood

    My fashion itself doesn't look touristy, but my consistent reliance on a large backpack, prosumer dSLR, and hefty camera bag do make me rather look like one.

    Re: Lookin' good in the neighborhood

    I believe Werner Weiss of yesterland.com did an article about this a while back, it was interesting to see the style people wore back in the 50's, and 60's to the park compared to what they wear now. It's a cool article, this thread reminded me of that

    Re: Lookin' good in the neighborhood

    Probably because it use to be fancy and a romantic evening to take people to Disney.

    Now everyone goes for the entertainment and the rides so they dress comfortable. Not to mention you dont want to wear nice clothes to get wet in when you splash down in Splash Mountain and GRR.

    I just wear pants shoes shirt hat, and thats wherever i go
