Dapper Day Details – Fall 2013

Published June 28, 2013 by Disneyways.com

dapper day 2013

Just as a refresher, what is Dapper Day at Disney and where did it all begin? Organizer Justin Jorgensen is said to have been inspired by the original Imagineer Illustrations of Disney Park designs. These images often portray guests dressed as though they are going out for a very upscale event such as an opera or a maybe a high-end restaurant. Why shouldn’t going to Disney still be on par with such grand affairs? Well, that is what Dapper Day is all about. It is a chance to realize those designer’s dreams. On Dapper Day, you bring those illustrations to life when you become those well dressed guests the designers imagined (or hoped) would be filling the park.

Started spring of 2011, Dapper Day organizes fashionable gatherings at The Disney Resorts in LA, Orlando, and Paris. February 24, 2013 was the date of the latest event.

The coming celebration is expected to be an “evening affair.”

“DAPPER DAY Fall Soirée” Friday September 6, 2013 at  Disneyland Resort, and Saturday September 21, 2013 at Walt Disney World Resort.

Here is video of the February event at Walt Disney World!

Dapper Day is NOT a Disney sponsored event. It is completely optional and perfectly OK to stay casual or not even participate at all.

Dapper Day 2013 – An Introduction

Published January 2, 2013 by Disneyways.com

Last year Dapper Day saw 3,000 – 4,000 participants in Disneyland alone. Judging by the popularity, we believe it is destined to get bigger every year. So what is Dapper Day and what does it all mean for you and your visit to Disney Parks?

Let me start by saying that Dapper Day is NOT a Disney sponsored event. It is completely optional and perfectly OK to stay casual or not even participate at all.

In fact, the concept is very new. Started spring of 2011, Dapper Day organizes fashionable gatherings at The Disney Resorts in LA, Orlando, and Paris. The coming celebration will be an  all-day event, including an “evening affair.”

Again, it is certainly NOT official, and purely optional and fun. 

How did the event come about? Organizer Justin Jorgensen is said to have been inspired by the original Imagineer Illustrations of Disney Park designs and even more recent concept art for Epcot.

Stay tuned to Disneyways for more on Dapper Day, including ideas for what to wear, videos from last year, event hours and suggested schedules. Each event usually has a simple schedule of one or two in-park gatherings like the evening “Dapper Derby” at the Fantasyland carrousel in Disneyland.  However you and your party are encouraged to enjoy the park at your leisure.

So what are your thoughts? What do you think of the idea of Dapper Day and will you be participating?

Ooh La La! Bistro de Paris Gets a New Name!

Published November 29, 2012 by Disneyways.com

Bistro de Paris will soon have a new name, Monsieur Paul. The restaurant has been closed since July 2012, and the new name has been spotted on the most recent Epcot guide maps. “Monsieur Paul” is in reference to Paul Bocuse, one of the three chefs who started the restaurant. Not one to steal anyone’s thunder…as of right now… Remy is only making appearances at Chefs de France. I think he and Chef Paul are friends however. Here is some photographic proof.

Chef Paul has been named Top Chef of the 20th Century by the Culinary Institute of America. He is also considered to be the first “celebrity chef,” because he put his name on his own restaurant way back in 1965. The newly re-named Bistro in Epcot (Monsieur Paul) is expected to re-open in early December 2012.

Before the Bistro closed, it was a little known fact that you can see Illuminations (Epcot’s fireworks) while dining there. The second floor view was said to be awesome – as long as you requested (and got) a window seat. If you’ve eaten there I hope you’ll share your experiences. Hopefully one day soon I will make it to Monsieur Paul. 

Until next time…Passez une bonne journée magique! (I think that means have a magical day.)
