Victoria’s Home-Style Restaurant

Victoria’s is in keeping with the theme and era of Main Street USA.  It is a counter-service restaurant where you can find American-style sandwiches and snacks.

The decor is really lovely, and as with some of the other restaurants, if you look closely you will find some clever little details.

Boot Hill Ted’s Review of Victoria’s

We are here at about 1:30pm and there was a small queue. It did get longer after we sat down. There was just enough seats, but there are extras outside the restaurant if it’s very busy.

The selection of sandwiches was limited (3 options) but they were all quite nice. May not suit fussy eaters as there was salad, mustard etc. on them. I don’t think you can order them plain as they appeared to be pre-made.

I ordered a ‘Victoria’s Menu’ which is a sandwich, side of salad or crisps, and a drink. This was €12.

Fuente del Oro Restaurante

See the current menu here.

Fuente del Oro is an American South-West themed Counter Service restaurant situated in Fronteirland in Parc Disneyland.  Here you can have some Mexican-inspired dishes such as Enchiladas and Fajitas.

When you walk into this restaurant you’ll be greeted by lovely colourful themed decor, some of it based on the movie ‘Coco’.  There is seating provided both indoors and outdoors.

The set menus include a main, side, dessert and drink.  I can highly recommend the Loaded Fries!  The Churros are very popular and can be bought separately.  You can also visit Fuente del Oro for an ‘Instant Délice’ (drink and snack), with an option of a souvenir mug.

What is DisneyBounding?

DisneyBounding was created by Leslie Kay and is what happens when you combine Disney and Fashion.  You choose a Disney character and create an outfit inspired by them using clothes you already own, or can get in a high street shop.

DisneyBound is meant to be inspiration for you to pull together your own outfits which work for your body and wallet whether from your closet or local mall.

Are there any rules?

You can wear a DisneyBound any day of the year; at home, at work, or to Disney Parks.  You can do a casual look, or a more dapper look; it’s up to you!  Be as creative as you like.

Where do the rules come in then?  DisneyBounding is not the same as wearing a costume.  That is considered cosplay, and is a different genre.  The lines between the two can get blurred a little sometimes, and this can cause issues at Disney Parks.

You can read Disneyland Paris’s Theme Park Rules here.

 

Why can’t adults wear costumes to the Disney parks?

We … reserve the right, at our own discretion and at any given time, to refuse a visitor the right to wear any type of costume… that Euro Disney Associés S.C.A. would consider as inappropriate or if it would impede the operation while posing as or portraying any character in costume. The same rule applies for accessories considered to breach security or be a danger in our attractions (capes, sticks, etc.).

www.disneylandparis.ie

Children up to the age of 12 may wear costumes at Disney Parks.  Adults that are dressed in a way that might make them resemble a character or Cast Member can cause confusion for other park guests, and especially children.  Disney reserve the right to refuse anyone who may “detract from the experience of other guests.”

On special occasions, such as the Hallowe’en Soirée and the RunDisney races, adults may wear costumes, but there are still guidelines to be followed (no masks etc.).

 

What else isn’t allowed?

  • Costume Wigs.
  • Props, such as lightsabers.
  • Clothing with multiple layers are subject to search upon entry.
  • Clothing with objectionable material, including obscene language or graphics.
  • Clothing which exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment.
  • Masks.

 

So, what can I wear?

The possibilities are endless!  Start by looking for block colours in your wardrobe that remind you of Disney characters.  Maybe yellow jeans and a red t-shirt for Winnie the Pooh, or a white skirt, red belt and purple top for Aladdin.

Accessories are where you can really have fun with a Disneybound.  A shell necklace for Ariel, a bow and arrow necklace for Merida, a flower hairclip for Lilo…. the more creative, the better!  There are lots of sellers on Etsy that cater for this.

Many people like to wear themed Mickey Mouse Ears to match their Bound, where as some people prefer to wear hats or headscarves in a colour that complements their outfit.

Is Disneybounding just for women?

Absolutely not!  Men and children can take part in the fun, too!

 

 

 

What is ‘Dapper Day’?

Step out in style!

Started in February 2011, DAPPER DAY® Events celebrates refined style from yesterday and today by organizing elegant outings and social events with distinguished locations including Disney parks, and more.

DAPPER DAY Events celebrate the tradition of “stepping out in style” and are meant to showcase you at your best. We do not aim to recreate a specific period. All sophisticated attire is encouraged from vintage-inspired classics to chic, contemporary looks.

-DapperDay.com

Dapper Day is an opportunity to wear your ‘Sunday Best’.  Vintage looks are commonly seen at Dapper Day but are not a necessity.  Costumes or cosplay are not allowed.

What has Dapper Day got to do with DisneyBounding?  Well, nothing, officially, but many people like to combine the two trends.
