When you go to a theme park, you are constantly on the go to get from ride to ride and show to show. The last thing you want to worry about is your outfit when your day is jam-packed with things to do and places to be.
Below are five tips for choosing an outfit for your next trip to the theme park.
- Choose an outfit that is comfortable. This may seem obvious, but many people get tempted to wear an outfit that is uncomfortable because it’s cute. However, you’ll be standing and walking around for most of the day, and you’ll probably not want to walk around limping from your painful shoes or trying to stretch out your waistband because your pants are too tight. Choose an outfit that you’ve worn before that you know is comfortable. Some new clothes may seem comfortable in the fitting room but get uncomfortable throughout the day.
- Wear clothes that don’t require adjustments. Try on an outfit that you want to wear to the theme park. Bend over. Does your butt pop out? Walk around for a bit. Do your bottoms give you a wedgie? Does your top ride up? Do your straps keep falling off your shoulders? If so, you may want to rethink your outfit. Comfort is key.
- Check the weather. View the high and low for the time period that you will be in the park. If there is a drastic difference in temperature, you may want to wear layers.
- Choose pieces that can adapt with the changing temperature. This piggybacks off of tip #3. If the day you’re planning to go to the theme park is cold during the morning and evening but warm throughout the day (typical Southern California weather), tie a jacket or cardigan around your waist or purse when it’s warm out.
- Don’t forget to flaunt your style. You can be cute and comfy at the same time! Wear an outfit that will make you feel confident and beautiful because your special day at the theme park will be a day you will want to take photos that you can share with your family and friends.
Bonus Tip: If you’re planning to ride rides that will splash you with water, you may want to wear flip flops or sandals so you don’t walk around in squishy shoes for the rest of the day.
Believe it or not, all of the photos below were taken at Disney’s California Adventure Park. I’ve been a Disneyland annual passholder since I was in junior high school (8 years), and I’m still not tired of this place. Who can resist the playful architecture, vibrant colors and lush landscaping?
