The Power of a Cute Disney Outfit

Sometimes you just need a break from life. From work. From the responsibilities. Sometimes you need to hakuna-matata-that-shit, press pause and be a worry-free kid again – at least for a weekend. But, where can you escape to? The Happiest Place on Earth!

In mid-January, spontaneity took over. I booked two Florida Resident: 4-day Discover Disney tickets, came home from work on a Friday, surprised the boy (we fell to the floor from excitement), and bolted to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida for a long holiday weekend. Best.decision.ever!

I may be able to put my responsibilities on the back burner from time to time, but fashion – uh, that’s always hot. Shopping around for Disney-inspired looks, I found THE cutest Mickey Mouse print sweatshirts from Forever 21’s current Disney line. AND yes, I bought two for us to match (I know, so obnoxiously adorable you want to vomit). But little did I know that these sweaters were gonna be such a hit at Magic Kingdom. The Mickey Mouse sweaters got us a shout out from Alice during a parade with a round of applause from the crowd (she was very happy to find her Tweedles, apparently), two FastPasses+ to ride the sold-out-and-the-line-ends-in-Miami-bitch Seven Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster, 19 counted compliments, a $40 offer to purchase the sweater from a desperate mom and an insufferable tween, and an extended meet and greet with THE MOUSE himself. Take note on the power of a good outfit, Mannequins.

“A classic throwback never goes out of style, and this Mickey Mouse sweatshirt is no exception. Full of comfy details (long sleeves, ribbed trim, and a fleecy interior) and featuring an allover print of the character’s famous face, this is one staple sure to get extra mileage in your closet.”

Dine at Be Our Guest Restaurant

“Feast on French-inspired fare in any of 3 elaborately themed rooms straight out of the beloved Disney film.”

“Nestled at the foot of the Beast’s Castle in the newly re-imagined Fantasyland, this expansive 550-seat venue allows Guests to relax and pull up a chair in the mysterious West Wing, the Rose Gallery or the grand 2-story Ballroom.”

So this meet-and-greet with Mickey almost topped the time when we met Beyonce. We spent about 5 minutes in his private dressing room, had a fun conversation (yes, he actually talks), I played his magician’s assistant, he kissed me and gave me the warmest hug. Dreams came true, literally.

The next day we hit up EPCOT for some good ol’ day drinking around the world. If you’re not giving marriage advice to a gaggle of drunk bachelorette girls wearing awful tiaras in Mexico by 5 p.m., then you’re not doing EPCOT right.

Round 2 is in the works for Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. The MANnequin Party recommends you to have more fun in life. Be a kid again & again, lose your inhibitions, and get your cute behind to DISNEY!
