We Are Disney Bound!

This past Christmas, I received a $25 Disney gift card in a gift exchange. At first, I wasn’t sure what I was going to use it on. Then it hit me…. save it and start planning for a Disney trip! My mom told me about a coworker of hers saving up a bunch of gift cards, and she had enough to pay for a four-day vacation at Disney World! So I decided to collect as many cards as I can for myself and my family to spend a few days in Florida. It’s slow going, but I’m not planning on trying to head out this year.

I’m so hyped up about it though, that I’m already thinking about what I want to wear to the Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios. I mean, I would wear an actual princess gown if I could. But I looked up the dress code for the parks and was disappointed to read that anyone over the age of 14 can’t really dress up. It makes sense why; young children could confuse you for the actual Disney princess/character. But it’s also a huge security risk. Someone could sneak weapons or other things into the park by stuffing them inside the folds of a costume. So no gowns… yet…

But I recently found a way that I can walk around sporting my love for Disney. It’s called Disneybounding. It was created by Leslie Kay, and I’ll put a link to her website. The idea is to make an outfit based off a Disney character that’s easy on the wallet. So, if you wanted to be Ariel, you’d put on a purple shirt and green shorts (and maybe even a red wig). This idea stems to all Disney characters, like villains and side characters, as well. Kay does part of the work for you by picking certain articles of clothes and accessories for each character. She even links where she found the clothes so you can buy the outfit yourself! But the whole point is to give you an idea of what to look for.

Here are some examples off of Leslie Kay’s page:

Let’s start with the mouse of the house; Mickey.

If Mickey’s around, you know Minnie isn’t too far behind!

Kay took it one step further and had Ariel’s mom, Queen Athena, as well!

I haven’t seen the Emperor’s New Groove in a long time, but I know not to ruin Kuzco’s groove.

Y’know, I love Greek mythology, and Hercules (sorry, ‘Hunk’-ules) just so happens to be one of my favorites. Although, the actual myth is quite different from the movie…

This doesn’t even scratch the surface of what she’s got. There are so many possibilities! These will definitely give me some inspiration for when we actual go to Disney World. Maybe this gave you some, too!

But seriously, go check out Kay’s website. See ya soon!
