Ahhhhh…Disney World. Oh, how I love your magical moments, your special memories, your insanely, unhealthy food, your Mickey ice cream sandwiches, and, pretty much, your Mickey shaped EVERYTHING, because, let’s face it..there’s a lot of it! And, even though our Disney vacations have changed dramatically with a child in tow, they have become even better and that much more special. Sharing the “magic” with my daughter is indescribable, and seeing her little face light up, beaming with that perfect smile, makes all the craziness worth it.
This trip, we got to experience all the fun with our cousins, which included Charlotte’s best friend, Emma! It was so much fun to see the two girls excited together and see how much they just loved being with each other! This was Charlotte’s second time to Disney, so as a veteran, she appreciated and understood Disney that much more! I couldn’t believe some of the things she remembered from last time, and how much more she was engaged and enthralled with everything. It was such an incredible feeling, to see her get so excited to meet her favorite characters. And, I’m pretty sure I watched her more than the shows, because she would sing and dance the whole way through! Talk about precious!! And, oh, so rewarding.
Last time in Disney, the first thing we did was have our classic Mickey ear hats personalized in Magic Kingdom, and headed straight to the castle for some photos. So, in keeping with that tradition, we did the same thing, and had a special hat made for our second daughter that will be arriving this November! I couldn’t wait to see her name on her hat (the first thing I’ve seen her name on since finding out the gender) and race to the castle to make our announcement photo! I couldn’t keep our secret in any longer! Of course, it took several tries of convincing Charlotte to wear her hat, and making sure we had proper position of all hats so we could read the names, but we did it! And, I’m so in love with it. I just can’t wait for her little head to fill out her hat and to be able to experience the joy of Disney with both my girls!
We had such an incredible vacation, and I think we already have the next trip in the works! 🙂 Check out some more photos from our vaca and see below where I like to shop for our Disney gear-because, you’ve gotta rock Disney wear in “the happiest place on earth.” 😉
My Mickey tee is from Target. They have such a cute selection of comfortable, lightweight shirts that are affordable and so fun!
My Minnie bow tee is from The Disney Store. They have a pretty extensive selection of Disney wear and they usually run several sales throughout the year, including free shipping and discounts on clothing!
My Best Day Ever tee was made on Etsy. Check out their site, full of shops that make any Disney shirt you can imagine! And, don’t see what you want? Many shops will create a personalized shirt designed just for you, with whatever saying or colors you want!
Charlotte and Emma’s Minnie shirts were also from Target. This is definitely a favorite place for me to stock up on the Disney wear, because you can find so much for so little! They really have a pretty large selection for both girls and boys.
Charlotte’s Minnie Mouse travel vaca tee is from Kohls, which you can find here. This is where I found her Disney princess tees for the trip, and right now they have several of their Disney shirts on sale for buy one, get one half off! Check out their selection here. (This is also where I found Charlotte’s pink Ariel tank from the photos above)
Charlotte’s Magic Kingdom outfit is from the Kingdom itself! But, we had so many questions about where we found her Minnie Mouse moccs! Those would be Etsy! They seriously have everything, and I love that it’s all so unique! You can find them here.
I hope this helps you prepare for your own Disney trip! If you’re thinking Disney is crazy with little ones, you are RIGHT. 😉 BUT, it is SO worth it, and I can promise you the fun, the laughter, the memories, and the moments, far outweigh the crazy. Happy shopping!
From my heart to yours,
