    Hello, everyone!

    I am planning for my Disney World trip this coming September. I know it's still early to be planning what to pack but it's what I do, overplan! :)

    I know it will be hot and it can be hit or miss with the rain so I've got ponchos in my packing list. But we have reservations at a few signature restaurants - Jiko, Flying Fish, California Grill, Boathouse - 2 out of the 4 are on park days. The other two we will be going from our resort so I can dress up a little more with out worries about hot, sweaty park days.

    For parks, Like most people, I like to dress comfortable and sporty but on the days where we have the signature dining reservations, I'd like to take it up a notch. Keep it comfortable but a little more elegant. How casual is too casual?

    What would you wear?

    Thanks in advance!

    To be honest, I really don't care how casual I am at Disney. Most restaurants don't have a dress code, so I wear what I wear to the park. If anyone scoffs or judges me for wearing shorts and a t-shirt, I honestly don't care. I won't ever see any of these people again, and their opinions don't affect me. That being said, I'm not going to openly flaunt the dress code; I wouldn't wear pajama pants and a belly shirt or anything like that. I just don't feel the need to dress to the nines.

    If I happen to go to a place that DOES have a dress code, I have simple, comfortable dresses that I can wear with bike shorts underneath. I have worn dark khaki cargo capris and a simple purple hippie blouse before as well. I don't pack much that I can't wear to the parks.

    A pair of jeans or capris and a plain t-shirt will also suffice, as per the dress code.

    I'd say that what you'd consider wearing for "Casual Friday" at a professional office would be a good indicator of what you would want to wear.

    If its a park day I'm wearing my normal park attire to restuarants.
    Shorts, T-shirt, sneakers...
    If its a non park day I'd consider a sundress and comfortable flat sandals with a strap.

    When my housemate and I ate at Napa Rose in Disneyland, we planned ahead that day and brought a backpack with a dress for each of us, plus our nicer sandals and whatever we wanted to wear under the dresses. We rented a locker and changed in a bathroom before we left the park, and it worked out pretty neatly because we were able to go on Splash Mountain right beforehand without worrying about having to walk around in sodden clothing afterward. We didn't have to dress up for the restaurant, but since it was a special meal we wanted to, and it was worth the fuss since it was only one evening out of our trip. I don't know that I'd do it twice in one trip, though. It gets harder, too, if you're park-hopping; if you're only going to one park it's not such a big deal to rent the locker one time for the whole day.

    Any chance you can go back to your resort for a late afternoon/early evening break to change? Otherwise I'd probably just dress a little nicer on the park days when you have reservations (so a nice top instead of a t-shirt, etc.) and just live with being a little bit underdressed at dinner.

    Sorry cant tell your gender from name. I wear super cute dresses cool dresses the entire time i'm at Disney, with bicycle shorts to prevent chafing. If your a guy maybe try a utility-kilt its cool and dressier than shorts.
