Hello interwebs and welcome back to the Neighborhood redhead. Today on the continuing countdown to Disney series I am going to be talking about my plans for Disneybounds as well as how I plan what I am going to wear on my vacation.
Like I’ve mentioned before, I think Disneybounding really adds to the experience and it keeps you hyped over the long waiting periods. Today, however, I am going to be talking more specifically about my planning process and how I decide what bounds I am doing.
Step 1: Dinner Reservations and Park Decisions
On my way to figuring out my disneybounds, I decide where I am eating dinner and even before that which park I am spending the day at. I do this for a few reasons, one to help narrow down restaurant choices for resturaunt week. I also do this because if you decide what parks you are going to be spending the day at, and subsequently where you eat dinner ( at the same park) you don’t have to spend the extra money for park hopper tickets. This also helps me decide what bounds I am going to do. I will usually plan what I’m wearing depending on these two factors. I allow me to narrow down what I want to do and also makes good photo opportunities better.
Step 2: Narrow down a list
So once I’ve decided where I am going to be I narrow down what I want to wear. This trip I am doing ALL Disneybounds so I created a list of what to wear in the parks during the day and what to wear for dinner at night. As a reference here is my list.

At Night: Becky
Day 6: Magic Kingdom/Flying Fish
At Park: Evie
At Night: Boardwalk Hotel
Day 7: MGM/Sci-Fi Drive-In

At night: Kylo Ren
Step 3: Scour Pinterest
Pinterest is your best friend for coming up with ideas on what to add to your disneybounds. I help narrow all of those amazing ideas you have for what to wear and helps you get ideas from your own closet.
Step 4: Assemble
The last part is to assemble the outfits. Once you have scoured Pinterest, your closet, and for me the local H&M, you are ready to assemble all of your outfits. Don’t be afraid to do some DIY projects as well. For my bounds, I am making Minnie ears to match each outfit to make them more recognizable.
Alright well, that’s all I have for you today! Make sure to go over and check my Pinterest ( @TheNeighborhoodRedhead) for inspiration for your own Disneybounds!
As always stay magical,
