For those of you that don’t know this about me, I am a HUGE DISNEYLAND nerd.
I am OBSESSED with everything about the park from the characters to the rides to the food, the kitsch, lore and insider secrets!
I’ve read every book, searched for every “hidden mouse” and consumed something close to my body weight in churros and dole whips.
If ever there was my “Happy Place” it’s Disneyland.
Disneyland is like a whole other world and like any society it has developed it own subculture and trends.
First it was DILF’s of Disneyland (Pics of Hot Dads at Disneyland posted on Instagram) then Disneyland Social Clubs (Think Sons of Anarchy but in a friendly G-Rated Disney way, they wear matching denim vests with the club’s name and logo on the back in custom made patches designed by members. And pins. LOTS OF PINS, limited-edition Disney pins everywhere) and now it’s all about DisneyBounding.
DisneyBounding was created by blogger Leslie Kay in 2012 as a way to get around Disney’s rule of “No one over the age of 14” being able to wear a costume inside Disneyland.
DisneyBounding is basically dressing in an outfit inspired by a Disney Character. It isn’t cosplay- you don’t put together a costume. Its all about using contemporary pieces from your own closet or the mall to create a modern tribute to the character. Think pairing a yellow dress with a red sweater to Disneybound as Winnie the Pooh or green jeans and a purple top for a perfect ode to The Little Mermaid.
I may not go full DisneyBound when my feet hit the park but I would definitely say there is an element of it in there, so in true fan-girl style I almost lost my mind when I stumbled upon “The Park Edition” from Unique Vintage. I already ordered three tees.
Whether you are a Disney foodie, a ride fanatic, want to try your hand at DisneyBounding or just add a little Happily Ever After to your wardrobe this collection has EVERYTHING you didn’t know you needed.
