    I've been to WDW 2x in the summer months & I've found that running shorts/tanks are best. Is this ok to wear to the restaurants? Also, ladies would it be wise to wear a summer dress to the parks? Would like to dress up for my hubby & I's anniv. d

    Hi, Samantha! I like that you set the threshold at running shorts and tank tops. This would be an awkward question to answer if we had a different starting point.

    Running shorts and tank tops are acceptable for nearly all sit down (table service) restaurants at Walt Disney World. Some of the fancier / Signature Dining restaurants have a dress code calling for slacks, banishing hats, etc. Check out the specific policy for each restaurant by bringing up the restaurant's name on the Restaurants at Walt Disney World page.

    I say go nuts and wear summer dresses to the parks. My wife does. I would if I could. What's not to like about that kind of bipedal freedom and comfort?

    Summer dresses also dress up nicely for restaurants. Me? I usually throw a sport coat on top of my Hawaiian shirt and put my hat in the bed of the stroller. Many people will get dolled up for special dining events. You definitely won't stick out for doing so. Plus, it's a nice way to help you and your hubby feel even more special on your special special day!
