What is Disney Bounding?
(Via chipandco.com) - "Disney Bounding is an amalgamation of Disney and fashion. This is a great way to rock your DisneySide at the parks, or even in your everyday life. Disney Bounding is a way of dressing up as your favorite character using inspired color palettes, accessories, and clothing styles to look like the character, without actually being in costume. You simply use items from your own wardrobe or your usual retailers." You can check out our growing Pinterest Idea Page here or google Disney Bounding and find your own villainous ideas! We look forward to seeing what you come up with!
Do I have to dress up to attend?
While you wouldn't be turned away for not being dressed to impress, we do hope you make the effort to do so. This is a themed dress event, and we'd like to encourage EVERYONE to take part in the villainy and mischief! We'd even love to see you in a Spooky Empire t-shirt!
Is this a Disney sponsored event?
No. While we are working closely with Disney to make this a magical event, this is a Spooky Empire© event, not a Disney sanctioned event. We are in no way affiliated with Walt Disney World® Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios® or Magic Kingdom® Park.
