I had so much fun planning some disneybounding outfits for my boys. As big as we are on costumes around here, they’ve never worn a costume into a Disney park except to Mickey’s Halloween Party. Maybe it’s because you’re more likely to see little girls wearing Princess dresses in the parks. An easy alternative to wearing a costume is disneybound instead. Disneybounding is when you dress up like your favorite Disney characters using normal clothes. I came up with a few ideas for our recent trip to Walt Disney World, check out these fun Disneybounding ideas for kids.
The best part about Disneybounding is getting creative wearing regular clothes. Start by brainstorming characters you’d like to be and then go through clothes you already own. What can you easily make work with your existing wardrobe? Then pick up an extra piece of clothing or fun accessory to finish off the look. I splurged on a green fedora for the Goofy look. My youngest son loves wearing hats so it made sense. Goofy ended up autographing his hat during a character encounter. It’s Elliot’s favorite hat now!

Elliot’s Beast look is part Disneybounding part DIY Disney shirt. Layering a blue jacket with a white shirt would work but it’s too hot for that, we might as well go full on Beast costume if we went that route. I compromised by creating a Beast inspired tuxedo shirt and paired it with black shorts. It turned out adorable. I’ll be sharing details on how I created the shirt soon, so you can make one for your own Beast.

Disneybounding made our character encounters and photos extra fun. I think next time mom and dad need to get in on the action too!
