What Is Disneybounding?
Disneybounding is essentially a way that adults can have a fun and creative time visiting Disney Parks! You pull together ordinary items to create an extraordinary outfit that is reminiscent of a character, ride, or theme at Disney! A Disneybound outfit is a cheeky creative way that adults can legally skirt some of the Disney costume rules while still dressing as their favorite characters.
For example, a simple Disneybound for women would be a green skirt or pants and a purple top and perhaps a seashell in your hair. This is a nod to The Little Mermaid. A Disneybound outfit can be as simple or as detailed as you want it to be, as long as it is clear that it is simply a “nod” to the character and not a full-on costume. These are things that you can easily add to your Disney packing list without taking up too much space to add some fun to your Disney wardrobe.
Disneybounding is a fashion-forward way to still shout out your favorite character, ride, or feature in Disney all while being the fashionable adult that you are! There are so many Disneybounding ideas that you truly just have to put your thinking cap on and be creative! But this article will help you get started and figure out a few good places to begin!
What Is The Disney Costume Policy For Adults?
Adults are unable to wear costumes at Disney unless you are going for a special event such as Halloween At Disney where the rules are different. This is to protect the magic of the Disney experience! You wouldn’t want to see two Snow Whites walking around! Then children would be confused as there are NEVER two Snow Whites! There is only real Snow White and then you, dressed as Snow White.
These days, costumes can be so good and so realistic that they may almost be better than the real character’s costume. Not having any confusion is essential for the magical experience of visiting Disney. This is why Disneybounding has become so popular! So you don’t confuse any of the children and keep the magic alive, but you can still dress like your favorite character in modern-day.
Disney Attire Policy Per The Disney Website:
Attire that is not appropriate for the parks—and which may result in refusal of admittance—includes but is not limited to:
- Costumes may not be worn by Guests 14 years of age or older; however, some costumes may be permitted during select special events, such as Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
- While costumes may not be worn by Guests 14 years of age or older, some outfits inspired by Star Wars may be permitted. Learn more about dressing for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
- Masks may not be worn by Guests 14 years of age or older (unless they are for medical purposes); however, some masks may be permitted during select special events such as Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
Make sure to check over this policy carefully before going to the parks! Many people don’t know that adults are not allowed to wear costumes to Disney so this is very important.
Where To Buy Disneybound Outfits?
The thing about Disneybounding is that you don’t really BUY an outfit, you create one! You pull it together from things you already own or from various places online! It is a very simple process and quite easy to come up with! The best place to start creating your Disneybound outfit is in your very own closet! Then, if you don’t have anything or all of the pieces, look to Amazon!
There are millions of products on Amazon and if you have an Amazon Prime account you can easily order and return if something doesn’t fit. We will link some favorite Amazon suggestions if you want to recreate the looks below.
Thrift stores or second-hand shops are WONDERFUL places to scour for Disney outfit ideas. The key to success at thrift stores is going back early and often. You never know what you can find and it will often be very cheap!
Finally, if you are creative, you can even make your own Disney outfits using fabrics you have. Maybe you found the perfect dress or top online or at the thrift store but it isn’t in your size. You can nip and tuck and sew it to bit you! Keep all your options open when creating your Disneybound outfits because creativity and flexibility is key!
12 Creative And Easy Disneybound Outfits For Women
Snow White Disneybound
Disneybounding as Snow White is one of the easiest characters you can pull together on the go. For an easy Snow White Disneybound, all you need is a yellow skirt, blue top, and red hair bow. If you really want to get specific, you can use tan or khaki shoes but it isn’t completely necessary! If you want to Disneybound Snow White in the summer, go ahead with bare legs. If you want to Disneybound during the colder months, you may want to throw on some white tights or leggings to complete the outfit and ensure that you are warm!

A Rapunzel Disneybound can involve as little or as much work as you want in order to create it. The dress in the inspiration photo below was custom made, but you can easily purchase a purple dress online or from the thrift store and then do it up for your own version of the Rapunzel Disneybound. Disneybounding Rapunzel is one of the more affordable Disneybounds because you only need a few items such as the purple dress and there aren’t two pieces such as a top and skirt that you need to find.
A long Rapunzel wig is typically not part of a Rapunzel Disneybound because now you are getting closer to a costume instead of a bound. This is a line that you want to tread carefully! Just make sure that your bound is inspired by the character whereas a costume is an exact replica! If you are say, a brunette or redhead and you want to Disneybound Rapunzel, perhaps consider buying a blonde wig that is a shorter braid or a bob. Something that is a playful not but not floor length. Either way, a blonde wig is NOT necessary if you want to create a Rapunzel Disneybound so do whatever inspires you.

Peter Pan Disneybound
ANYONE can be Peter Pan! Boys, girls, anyone! Don’t think that a Peter Pan Disneybound is just for the guys! This is also one of the easier and more affordable Disneybound outfits for adults.

This is a good Disneybound outfit to put together from pieces you may already own or that may be around your house!
When creating a Peter Pan outfit for adults, make sure that you choose TWO greens for maximum Peter impact! If you can cut scallops into your bottom or buy one that is already scalloped you are in for success! But of course, you do you! Anything goes!
