How To Add A Touch Of Disney To Your Graduation

Graduation is just around the corner for many people, my sister included. It can be a nervous day, so why not make it less scary and more excitable by adding Disney to your special day? After all, it’s quite a unique experience. Right now, you may have no idea what to do next; but chill! Just enjoy your day!

Here are some special ways to add a touch of magic to your day…

Graduation Caps

Recently, decorating your graduation cap has become very popular. You’ve paid for it, so I guess you may as well decorate it as you like.

You could embrace your childhood and go for caps like these;

Or, you could copy some characters. You could go for Sharpay Evan’s fabulous look, from High School Musical 3: Senior Year;

Or, you could copy Patrick’s look from The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I know it isn’t Disney, but it’s still a cool style, and he’s a book character – Belle would approve of your bookworm style!

There are so many options!



If you’re not brave enough to decorate your cap, or want to do something more than just that, then Disneybound! It’s another fun, creative thing to do.

You could Disneybound as Sharpay from High School Musical 3: Senior Year. Her graduation look is quite inspiring.

Or, you could go for something more simple. I particularly like this Disneybound idea for Rapunzel;

Add a bow to your outfit!


Bows are the cutest things ever and just scream ‘DISNEY!’ for me! Why not add one to your outfit, somehow? Whether it’s on your cap, your dress, your shirt, your shoes or your bag, it’s still cute. And if you don’t want to add a bow, you could just add a Disney accessory/piece of jewellery!

Disney inspired hairstyle/makeup

Easy pops! Choose your favourite hairstyle and favourite makeup look from whatever character you like, and copy it. Or do something similar.

Watch movies


There isn’t a lot of choice of Disney movies related to graduation, but the few that I know of are worth the watch. There’s High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Lizzie McGuire: The Movie, and An Extremely Goofy Movie. You could even watch some movies that relate to high school, such as Big Hero 6 and A Goofy Movie!

Disney mug

Have your celebratory drink in your very own Disney mug! Your drink will then be the most magical of all.

Say an unhealthy amount of Disney quotes

This will be an emotional day for some, so lighten the mood by embracing your inner Disney Nerd and slay people with quotes and references.

So, whether it’s your graduation or your friends or relatives; good luck and have fun! And keep your head in the game!

A few ways to add Disney to your outfit

If you’re a Disney fan, then you probably try to wear something related to Disney everyday. It’s cute, mostly easy, and fun to do. Adding a bit of Disney magic to my outfits is one of my favourite things to do!

Wear Disney socks

Just because not many people will see them, who says you still can’t wear cute socks? It’s a subtle way to do it and also ensures that you are comfortable. There’s so many types of socks to choose from, each with a different design, making them suitable for all ages.


Whether it’s a bracelet, a watch, a charm on a bracelet, a hair accessory, a hat. Maybe even a necklace, a ring or anklet. The list goes on and on. This is also a pretty easy way to add Disney magic to your outfit, and is also subtle, if you don’t want many people to see it. There; you now also have an excuse to go shopping and treat yourself!


What easier way to add Disney to your outfit and morning routine than having a Disney brush? You can also then keep it with you for the rest of the day, to keep the magic alive.


You can get a Disney top from pretty much anywhere these days; Disney parks/stores, a supermarket, other random shops, online websites. Or, if you want to get creative, you could buy an iron-on patch. That way, you’ll be able to design it the way you like, have whatever character you like. You could even sew a Disney character on to your clothes.


If you don’t know what Disneybounding is, it’s basicallyΒ when you pick a character to portray a fashionable outfit that resembles a colour scheme and pattern of that character. So, for example, if you wanted to Disneybound as Rapunzel, you could get a purple dress, or, like me, a pink top and purple skirt, with dolly shoes and put a flower in your hair, wearing similar makeup. That’s it!

Though this can sometimes be difficult, they are pretty fun to do and help your creativity and imagination grow. I haven’t got many Disneybound outfits (only Rapunzel from Tangled, Roxanne from A Goofy Movie and Gaston from Beauty and the Beast), but I am planning on making more. You don’t necessarily have to go out and buy clothes, because you’d be surprised by how many clothes of your own can go with a certain character. But it may help with some characters.

Wear a bow

Quite a lot of characters wear bows (mainly classics), so this would be a pretty cute way to add Disney to your outfit. Whether it be in your hair, a pattern on a piece of clothing or bag.

Inspired hairstyle/makeup

I love doing my hair and/or makeup like some of my favourite Disney characters! You can find many examples and tips on YouTube. They’re surprisingly easy to do. Right now, if I have enough time, I enjoy doing my hair like Cinderella (2015). I don’t curl my hair, I just do the plaits. But, I honestly don’t do a very good job at it, though, but I can only get better…. Hopefully.

Wear polka-dots!

Embrace your inner Minnie Mouse, and wear those polka dots with pride! They’re a fun pattern to have which can go with pretty much anything. Even polka-dot dolly shoes will help you add that magic to your outfit.


I know this isn’t adding anything to your outfit. But, a Disney pen or ruler or something, can help cheer you up whilst in school.


Having a Disney purse/bag with you can easily show people who you love Disney, and could help cheer them up as well, by adding magic to their life (for a few seconds, anyway). Disney bags and purses may not be the easiest things to find for a good price anymore, but online stores are probably the best ways to find something. I bought my Disney bag from the Disney Store, and my purse from New Look. Both of which were on sale; what a bargain!
