Welcome to Cool Dads™, a series in which our resident cool dad, Nick Grant, helps us all get dressed.
It’s inevitable, guys. If you have a child, and you are fiscally capable, you will eventually wind up at Disney World and/or Land. And guess what, it’s an amazing experience to share with your children, and the memories really will last forever. But, I have some sage advice, my friend: have your motherfuckin’ shit together and plan ACCORDINGLY. You’ve already lost if you think you can just roll up without a strategy in place. And just as important as it is to make sure your entire day is mapped out from start to finish, your attire could make or break your experience there, as well.
Your outfit literally needs to be all things at any time. Your shoes and trousers must be comfortable, but you have to be ready for stains and scuffs, unfortunately. You need a small, yet crafty bag to hold a gaggle of shit. And, most importantly, your jacket has to be your zenith. Lightweight, protective, packable, but with hella pockets. The Cool Dads™ are plentiful at Disney, so you gotta stand out too. Don’t fuck it up, man. The fam’s counting on you.
