Dapper Day once again took over Disneyland, filling the park with fans' best finery.

Dapper Day occurred this past weekend at Disneyland. For those of you who've never been, it's a Disney fan event where droves show up to the park dressed in their best outfits. While Dapper Day doesn't specifically try to mimic a particular era or style, most attendees typically don vintage fashions or old-timey takes on favorite characters within the Disney universe. It's not a cosplay event, though there are plenty of nods to Star Wars, Marvel and classic Disney.

The Dapper Day Expo featured a dance floor where attendees learned how to swing dance and danced to Orange County band Big Sandy. There were also two wet shave stands, a shoe shining stand, a tin printing photo booth and a place to get your portrait painted.

There was also a Disney Bounding meetup with Disney Bound creator Leslie Kay. This involves making your own outfits inspired by Disney characters.
