Disney Parks generally have a fairly strict no costume policy for adults (except around Halloween and Christmas time). Disneybounding is a way to put together an outfit inspired by your favorite characters while still being respectful of the Disney Parks rules. Real talk, it’s a super fun way to show your Disney geekdom while visiting the parks.
How I Started Disneybounding
My love of costumes feels like it’s always been a part of me. I even started cosplaying at a fairly young age. I didn’t really understand at the time that this was what people call cosplay and instead just felt a calling to do my very best to really embody a character. That love of cosplay continued through my teens and into my 20s.
What is Disneybounding?
Disneybounding is a Disney-specific version of casual cosplay where you dress in everyday clothing inspired by your favorite characters, rides, treats, or even walls!
