You’re going to Walt Disney World!! You have your resort reserved, tickets purchased, dining reservations made and parks picked! Now you have to decide what to wear! Do you pick fashion over comfort or can you have the best of both worlds for that perfect castle picture!?
There are so many amazing Disney outfits out there so where do you even start to get ideas that work best for your trip. I am the person that plans outfit ideas out even before the trip is booked. I base most of our attire options on two things:
- What park or parks are we going to that day?
- Where are we eating that day- will we see a special character?

Disney Outfit Planning for Beyond the Parks
Dining Reservation Outfit Ideas
Have that special character meal or themed restaurant planned for your next trip? Look your best for the occasion! Some of the most precious moments we have experienced are character interactions based on matching clothing or themed outfits! If having that meal with Mickey and friends, get your family to wear a shirt representing each character that will be present at the meal! Have a princess breakfast or dinner- make sure your little princess or prince is dressed for the occasion in proper royalty wear! Attending the luau at the Polynesian Resort- an Hawaiian shirt or dress will make you feel like you escaped for the Pacific!
