Typical Attire

I know what the dress code is for signature restaurants, but what do people typically wear? I'd hate to be under-dressed but at the same time, I don't love the idea of having to go back to our room and change for dinner most nights. I'm starting to plan our next trip with the DxDP so we'll be doing signature dining for the first time.

Also, I was planning to eat at CA Grill on the same day as doing Pirates League. Do hubby and DD need to take off their makeup before dinner or should I just try to rearrange the dining schedule on that one?

Thanks!

People wear anything and everything. I've seen them in fancy dresses and in park clothing in the same restaurant on the same night.

I typically wear some sort of sundress, but you do see others dressed in the "forbidden" attire.

If your kids look like pirates I don't think anyone would bat an eye.

But would you feel uncomfortable being in park clothing? I'm talking specifically about Le Cellier (assuming not since it's IN a park), Narcoossee's (we found the GF in general to be a bit stuffy), Wolfgang Puck, CA Grill, and Artist Point, in case that helps.

Whatever anyone else prefers doing, park clothing is not "prohibited" at the signature restaurants. What is "prohibited" would be swimwear, torn or cutoff clothing, hats or tank tops on men, and tee shirts with "offensive" graphics or slogans. And even then, there are several reports out there of persons being allowed into the restaurants even in the "prohibited" clothing.

At Le Cellier, being in a park, there is no dress code to speak of.

At any of the others, nobody will say anything about what you are wearing. There will be patrons in all different types of clothing.

California Grill is closed until at least September.

We would. With the exception of signatures inside the parks, we always return to our resort to shower and change clothes before going to a nice signature dinner.

When we are doing Signature Dining we always freshen up and change before dinner. DH and DS wear dress shorts and collared shirts. I wear linen capris, a fancy blouse and fancy sandals.
Signature Dining is supposed to be an upscale experience. Being fresh and a bit dressed up from park attire, adds to the experience. I wouldn't be comfortable (other than Le Cieller (sp?) )in park clothing.
But as PP have said, you will see everything.
What will you be comfortable in?

We never wear the "forbidden" stuff but we do typically wear t-shirts and shorts or capri pants to the parks - nothing dressy. When we went to Kouzzina at The Boardwalk this last trip, I initially felt a little uncomfortable being in our park clothes until some others dressed even more casually arrived, and that wasn't even a signature restaurant. Just don't want to feel uncomfortable but if lots of people wear park clothes to the sigs, then we'd probably go with that rather than changing clothes for dinner.

Thanks for the info! I feel better prepared.

We just got back but I'm already laying out the itinerary for our next trip at the same time next year. I'm a nut like that.

My only tip would be to make sure that your clothing is expandable Sounds like some great restaurants. I especially love Narcoossee's

The DW and I typically "follow the rules" As a PP stated about freshening up before dinner, we always do and change from Park Gear to Dinner attire. No Suits and gowns but dress shorts and a polo for me and a whatever my wife wears she is also in charge of the DD(6) attire. I am a DISdad and have no say

We go resort casual.

Dress shorts (not swim suits or cut off jeans)
Golf shirt or even t-shirt (as long as it ha sleeves)

beyond that, its pretty wide open.

I guess, we dressed resort casual, when we had our signatures on our last trip, and will again next month. My DH and our older 3 boys (they were 13, 11 and 5 the last time) all wore polo style shirts, my DH wore slacks and the boys wore nice shorts, I wore a nice top with capris and DD wore sundresses.

I guess I think of dining at a signature at a resort to be an experience that is separate from going to the parks and park dining.

Our family dresses up when we go to signatures. Myseelf and DS are always in a shirt and tie and DW and DD are in dresses or at least dress pants and a blouse. We do this just because we like to dress up. That being said, you can be comfortable. Wear what will make you happy. People will be in all sorts of clothes. No worries with whatever you choice! Have a great trip!
