Disney Dapper Day Events at Disneyland Cancelled For June 2020


It has been announced that the Dapper Day activities scheduled for June in Disneyland have been cancelled. There was to be an EXPO at the Disneyland Hotel on June 20-21 and a “Summer Outing to Disneyland CA” on June 21st.


Since Disneyland is closed through June, and likely the same with Walt Disney World as the rumors are bookings are going to after July 1st, they have cancelled the Dapper Day June 2020 events.

There is good news! They may hold a smaller event in August, provided the parks are reopened by then:

However! In our discussions with Disney we feel there is a good chance we will be able to hold some sort of event at the resort in August (even if the parks are not yet open to full capacity). This would likely include a smaller DAPPER DAY marketplace with a limited number of exhibitors joining us instead of a full Expo with bands and dancing. We are awaiting the release of government guidelines so we can then design an event that can safely operate within those requirements.

We hope to have more info at the end of May regarding any potential Summer events for the Disneyland Resort, as well as the Walt Disney World Resort. Our November 14+15 events at the Disneyland Resort are still happening as planned and you may book your rooms at the links below. Expo passes for November will be available online later this Summer.

As far as refunds for the June event, they offered the following information:


If you’ve purchased a Spring / Summer 2020 Expo pass, you may request a refund, or, do nothing and it will be available for Fall Expo admission.

If your Spring / Summer Expo pass is not requested to be refunded by June 26, 2020, or redeemed at our Fall Expo entry Nov 14+15, (or if the Fall Expo does not happen) this admission will be considered a donation to the DAPPER DAY team. (Thank you! We would be very grateful as the current situation is challenging for us to say the least!) 

1 – Request a refund for Spring / Summer Expo passes via Eventbrite, now through Friday, June 26th, 2020. (We have extended the period in which refunds may be requested by a week.)

Please use the info on your emailed purchase confirmation from Eventbrite and request a refund via https://www.eventbrite.com. If you need further assistance, email hello @ dapperday.com with the name on the order, and date of the purchase, or order number.

2 – If your refund request is not submitted by end of day June 26th, 2020; by default, your Spring / Summer Expo pass will be available as your admission to our Fall 2020 Expo (Nov 14 + 15), as the same ticket-type you previously purchased. (We will have a list of those Expo pass-holders’ names at our Fall Expo entry.) Unredeemed Spring / Summer Expo passes at our Fall Expo will be considered a donation.


All convention-rate Disneyland Resort hotel reservations for June are in the process of being cancelled and refunded as of May 8, 2020. Expect to receive a cancellation email from Disney early next week.

For questions regarding convention-rate Disneyland Resort hotel rooms please contact Disneyland Group Reservations at 714-520-5005, M-F 8-5 PST, or email DLR.CONVENTION.GROUPS@DISNEY.COM.

To book rooms for our November 14+15 Expo with our convention rates dates please use this link – https://book.passkey.com/go/GDDK20A

It’s not possible to “transfer” a reservation made with a convention rate to a new later event date, but you can simply cancel the original reservation and then book a new one for our November dates. 

The Disneyland Resort has lifted the policy of requiring a 1-night, non-refundable deposit on our convention-rate bookings for our November event dates. A 1-night deposit is still required at time of booking, but it is refundable as long as notification of cancellation is received by Disney at least 5 days prior to your arrival date. The same link used to book a room may also be used to modify or cancel that reservation if needed.


If you have purchased convention-rate Disneyland Resort Park tickets for our June events, Disney has informed us:

  • Guests may use their current e-ticket which retains its value, and upgrade it to a retail ticket at any time at the park box office once it reopens.   
  • Or, call Disney at 714-520-7079, Mon – Fri 8am – 5pm PST, or email ticketinquiries@disneyonline.com to request a refund. Please have your ticket order number when calling.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
