Dapper Day at Disneyland

Whether it’s because of the excuse to dress up, to rebel against the everyday jeans and t-shirt ensemble or something more, thousands of people line up to attend Disneyland in elaborate fashion on Dapper Day.

So what is it like to walk around Disneyland during Dapper Day? Follow along with Times writer Rick Rojas:

Young men with knee-length basketball shorts hanging off their hips shuffled alongside dads in cargo shorts and socks pulled up to their shins. Moms, their hair pulled back in no-nonsense ponytails, trudged along in capri pants pushing strollers loaded down like the truck in “The Grapes of Wrath.”

Check out the full account of the pseudo-holiday here.
