Utilikilt at Disneyland?

Postby derail3 » Mon Sep 22, 2014 6:34 am

The wife and I are going to Disneyland next weekend. The kids are not coming with us. We are both in our late fifties but young at heart. Predicted to be a nice weather and was thinking about wearing one of my Utilikilts with sandals and a polo shirt. Having second thoughts about wearing it in a family theme park. Have decided to wear it on the flight between San Francico and Los Angles. This will be my first time flying wearing a kilt. Does anyone have experance wearing a kilt at Disneyland or some thoughts about it?

I always prefer to fly in a kilt or skirt and have never had any issues with that (avoid kilts with heavy buckles that will upset the metal detectors...)

I have never felt any urge to visit any of the Disney parks, but have worn a Utilikilt at both Alton Towers and Thorpe Park in the UK. Neither venue threw up any difficulties, in fact, as is often the case, the kilt provided the opening to many interesting conversations that I would not otherwise have had and made the time spent queueing for the various attractions far less of a chore than it would otherwise have been. I see no reason why Disney would be very different.

Have fun (and enjoy Disney),


Ian.

My traditional kilt has three buckles, however after removing the belt and it's front ingot (bloody great lump of metal/buckle thing) I haven't had a problem passing through the detectors, oh yes and removing the sporran and it's chain.

My advice, if your wife will support it, is to enjoy the trip 100% kilted. Don't even pack a pair of pants.

Be careful how you sit on the rides, though.

Agreed, be wary of mishaps with rides, etc. Have fun.

With a nod to our UK contingent, pack pants, one pair per day, and wear 'em, just so you don't flash the unsuspecting when you least intend it.

One has to love the inconsistency betwixt English and American (and I'll leave Australian right out of that mix, thank you very much)!

(Mixing idioms is especially sweet when identical words in the two, rather diverging, languages have completely different meanings. I have had much fun with that over the years. It's also fun when the meaning of words have changed meanings over time in one language and one uses the older meaning in current speech.)

Right, by pants I meant trousers, not underwear. And whether to bring underwear is totally up to you. A lot depends on the length of your hemline and the level of your experience.

Very well said! And Utilikilts in particular are very well behaved - you'd almost have to be trying to flash someone, or in a fairly strong wind, for anyone to determine what you chose.

I can not foresee any problems, a kilt is different from a skirt after all. When i visited last year, it was around Burns night, (a Scottish houliday) and they had many Scottish themed things, including Micky in a kilt. S i would be surprised it they took issue with a customer wearing one.

My friend wore a Utilikilt at Disneyworld. A ~14 year old girl who passed him said "freak." He yelled back "You should get to know me before calling me a freak."

There is no reason to be concerned about wearing a kilt at Disney. It is not a bible park or like going to the Vatican. You do not need trousers or pants.

I went with the entire extended family back in March. I flew from New Orleans, LA and didn't pack anything but kilts. I got nothing but positive responses - and tons from Disney Employees there from Scotland. I'll see if I have a pic from there and post.

I haven't worn a kilt to Disneyland (yet), but I've seen men wear Utilikilts from time to time with no issues.

I usually carry a pair of shorts with me to change if I run into a problem. They are nylon and roll up neatly. I have never had a problem, but one never knows. Disneyland used to have a strict dress code regarding footwear and "outlandish" clothing styles. There was a big law suit when a mother and her daughter were denied entry because they wore unusual (for that time) punk clothing and make up. The mother was a lawyer. If you were challenged, just say it is cultural and you are Scottish and that's the way you always dress. You could also say you are a musician in a Scottish band. I am sure you will not be confronted and you will probably be the most comfortable male in the Magic Kingdom. I am sure they would be worried about some kind of LGBT legal problem. If the airline doesn't have a problem, you won't either. Neither will Mickey. Maybe Goofy though.
