Before seeing The Force Awakens, I never would have considered a BB8 Disney bound. To be honest, I saw a new droid character as an attempt to upstage R2D2, and I was not impressed.
Fast forward to seeing the movie the first time.
And the second time.
Now I’m sold. I’m still a big fan of R2D2, but BB8 also found a place in my heart. It’s incredible how Star Wars and Disney can make us fall in love with a rolling, beeping piece of machinery!
A BB8 Disney Bound was a little challenging, but I think I put something together that would work.
What is Disney Bounding?
Disney Bounding is the act of dressing to represent a Disney character. It is not wearing costumes, but putting together an outfit that would be perceived as a regular outfit, but could also be identified as being reminiscent of a Disney character.
Disneyland and Walt Disney World both prohibit adults from entering the parks wearing costumes. This
ensures that children do not confuse regular park goers with Disney characters. Disney Bounding began when a Disney enthusiast wanted to show her love of Disney characters, without breaking the dress code rules of the Disney Parks.

I guess this is something that you would technically have to wear before Labour Day, but do those rules apply at Disney World? I’m not sure that they do. I have more Star Wars Disney bounds coming up in future weeks, but while you wait you can take a few minutes to look at some of my past Disney bounding outfits.
