    Dapper Day at the Animal Kingdom

    I was at Disneyland in California, but I call it the Animal Kingdom because there were so many people there, it was a total zoo.

    I know, I had to stretch too far for that joke set up. Anywho, I made my first Dapper Day yesterday with my daughters. Not a lot of photos, but I'll share a few that I have. If you happen to notice yourself in any, please let me know. Always fun to cross paths with a Micechatter.

    We got a late start and arrived about 1:30 pm. I really felt bad for anyone who didn't come specifically for Dapper Day. It was as crowded as I've ever seen it (except when they were ending the Main Street Electrical Parade the first time.) Had to start off the day with a photo of me and the girls with the Partners statue.

    Yes, I tried to pull off the Doctor Who look. No, I didn't succeed.
    However, I soon found someone else who did a much better job!

    The Riverboat was UNREAL. THe line stretched out to the Haunted Mansion. But the girls wanted to wait, so wait we did. Along the way we met some very dapper people, indeed.

    I really liked how this group even included a vintage baby buggy.

    That was one classy ride.

    Even saw the Boss there. He told me that one of the characters bowed to him when he came by.

    I really was impressed with this group of World War II soldiers who happened by. I would love to do Dapper Day (cool! alliteration) with a costume of this caliber.

    I'm glad I went, but next time I do Disneyland I'm wearing a nice, comfy T shirt!

    Great pics. I especially like the last one with the uniforms - I think my Dad wore something just like that back in the day.

    Cool report- I saw that guy he was a twin for the doctor and I loved the soldiers too!
    did not have the patience for the Mark Twain but what a sight it was. Dare I say, magical? That and the carousel made me feel tingly. I loved the camaraderie and meeting other dapper folk.

    Wish we could've gone to the swing party at jazz kitchen but were we pooped.

    I searched high and low for a reasonably priced vintage stroller/pram to no avail. Love it!! I think I saw those military guys at one of the last Dapper Days I went to.

    You all look great, by the way, and I think you pulled that bow tie off!!

    Thank you to Poisonedapples for my awesome signature!

    SBK1234 – You were awesome! I really liked your 11 outfit that is an excellent photo for sure.

    Mind Tricks – I would love to see it, and thank you for the kind words.

    If you would like to add me on Facebook and tag any photos of me here is the page: http://www.facebook.com/thedoctoristen

    I posted up pictures I found online of the people who had taken them with me. All in all I had such a great time, I can’t wait to do it again. It was amazing meeting new people and making their Dapper Day that much better.

    Allons-y!

    I think you could have pulled off the 7th or 9th Doctors extremely well, for what it's worth.

    Bless your heart. I guess age-wise I'll be much closer to Number 12. That's something! How much are Doc Martins?
