Having taken my fair share of vacations at Disney Parks, I feel especially capable of offering sage advice on what to wear to each of the Disney parks. Today, I’m sharing some fashion inspiration for one of my all-time favorite vacation destinations. But rather than just give you a couple of vague ideas, I’m offering up outfit suggestions for each of the four major theme parks and sharing the reasoning behind these suggestions.
The looks I’m sharing today are uniquely suited to each park but they all have one non-negotiable in common: they are both cute and comfortable. The footwear, especially, is comfortable first, and stylish second. Disney guests put a ton of miles on their feet each day and in offering ideas on what to wear to each of the Disney parks, I wanted to feature shoes that have a proven track record when it comes to comfort. With all of that said, I think it’s high time we get this vacation started, don’t you?
Ladies and gentlemen, please keep your hands and legs inside the vehicle at all times. Be sure to buckle up because we’re about to begin this tour of what to wear to each Disney park. We’re kicking our tour off at the place where the magic happens: Magic Kingdom. Everyone should feel free to be playful at the Magic Kingdom, right? This outfit fits that bill perfectly and it’s comfortable, too! The denim shorts are perfect for balmy Florida weather while the top is both whimsical and fashionable. I accessorized with a rose gold bracelet and sunglasses. Another super important aspect of any smart theme park outfit is the bag. I have another post about the very best bags for Disney that you should check out. The bag I chose for this particular outfit is lightweight and features plenty of pockets for storing theme park necessities like chapstick and a phone. As I mentioned, the most important part of this outfit–of any theme park outfit, really–is the footwear. These athletic shoes easily allow for miles of walking without causing aching arches or burdensome blisters.
I don’t know about your family, buy mine tends to watch a lot of shows when we visit Hollywood Studios. And so, when it comes to choosing what to wear to each of the Disney parks, I had some extra considerations to keep in mind when planning for Hollywood Studios. Whether it’s Fantasmic! or Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage, we spend a fair amount of time sitting on those metal bleacher seats while we’re at the park. With that in mind, I usually opt for a bit more coverage on my legs when we visit the studios. I find that Capri jeans or poplin pants are great options because they keep my legs from getting those uncomfortable indentions from all that time sitting on the metal bleachers. For this example outfit, I paired some boyfriend Capri pants with a breathable striped t-shirt and–once again–comfortable sandals. Disney’s “it” couple lent inspiration for the accessories. I’d love to stick around to see if I can up my Toy Story Mania score, but we’ve got one more park to hit. Let’s park hop over to Animal Kingdom, shall we?

Our tour of what to wear to each of the Disney parks would not be complete without a stop at — you guessed it — Animal Kingdom. At Animal Kingdom, conservation rules and though it makes no logical sense, it feels to me like camo is appropriate for this park. I paired these pants with a white cold-shoulder top. We’re going hands-free at Animal Kingdom with a khaki belt bag. Oh, and these shoes. You guys. These shoes are the bomb. They are my absolute favorite when it comes to comfort but what I love about them is that they’re as cute as they are comfortable. A pair of rose gold stud earrings and a green army watch band round out this outfit.

That, my friends, concludes our virtual tour of what to wear to each of the Disney parks. So what do you think? Which outfit is your favorite? Can you see yourself wearing any of these as you tour Florida’s most popular theme parks? Hopefully you can take a bit of inspiration from these suggestions the next time you get ready to pack your suitcase and head to the Mouse House. But if you need even further fashion advice, my friend Jo-Lynne offers some additional inspiration on what to wear to Disney.
