Dapper Day

Since Fall 2015 Dapper Day is right around the corner I decided to make a post about this past Spring Dapper Day! I am excited for the Fall Dapper Day because it should be cooler outside. The spring event was so extremely hot and miserable. I have no clue how the ladies in heels, long dresses, and wigs handled the heat.
Becky was very dedicated for Dapper Day and wore heels!





For Fall Dapper Day I have decided that I am going to do the "full out" thing and just go to the park for an hour or two. Here are some of my thoughts for outfits and hair inspiration. I can't decided if I want to go for the 1920's look or the vintage nautical style, or something totally different. 








Taylor Swift's style is also a huge inspiration for my Dapper Day attire!

Hoop Dee Doo Revue- A Review

Hoop De Dee Revue is one of the best valued things to do at disney, as a cast member. Cast members can receive up to 50% off HDDR almost all throughout the year. HDDR usually costs around $70-80 depending on where you sit. For a cast member you pay $35 (ish) and that includes: All you can eat dinner, All you can drink beer wine and sangria, and a wonderful show (gratuities are also included)! The pricing depends on what area you sit in. I don't recommend the tier 1 seating unless the budget isn't important. The performers wander throughout the entire venue and the worst seats don't seem too bad. The food at HDDR is southern home cookin' type food. They generally serve buckets of fried chicken, ribs, mashed potatoes, veggies, corn bread, salad, and strawberry shortcake for dessert! When I visited HDDR I was still only eating fish. Luckily Disney is the best at accommodating dietary restrictions. I was able to have a WONDERFUL plate of salmon on a huge bed of veggies. If you are a mac and cheese lover make sure to ask for it. The mac and cheese isn't advertised, but you can certainly order it for no charge. As a pescetarian I was given a special menu upon being seated. I informed my server that I did not eat chicken or ribs. The menu had a pasta option and a veggie plate option as well. You do not have to make any special arrangements ahead of time for the special dinners. The speciality plates are not all you can eat, but no worries the portions are HUGE and you can still devour all of the side dishes you wish!
