4 Ways to Find Cute Disney Shirts

Hey howdy hey everyone! I’m here to share all about those cute Disney shirts you always see people wearing while at Disney. I’m also here to share some exciting news: We’re having another giveaway!

 

image

Hold up though, let’s backtrack for a moment. Last week I had the pleasure of heading back down to Walt Disney World and enjoying a couple nights with my best friend. And while we didn’t actually visit the parks (heaven forbid! haha) we had a great time exploring the resort areas and dining experiences. Our main park day was spent at the Universal parks (yeah, I said it) while our resort stay was at WDW. Simplify the combo of our resort stay and our parks experience into terms like “mouse” and “patronus” and combine it with our excitement of planning a super last-minute trip and what do you get? My DIY heat-transfer “My Patronus is a Mouse” design of course! And while there are lots of great places online to choose from, I knew that because we were so last-minute I’d have to make ours instead of ordering online.

image

To start, be sure you’re following Sarah, Amy, and I over on our instagram account! I posted the below photo last week while we were there and it got some good love both from instagram as well as people actually at the parks and the entire Disney resort. But, that story will have to wait til the podcast, (yeah, I’m gonna plug it too) next week! So if you love Disney AND Harry Potter, that is the episode for you!

The moment we decided we’d be heading down, we hit pinterest to get some ideas for planning our shirts. Since it would be just us two adults, we wanted something fun that combined the two well. We found and pinned lots of things but they were mostly one or the other (the mouse or the wizard) and I only found one that really had both. And while it’s super cute and I’ll always sigh after seeing the word always when referenced with Harry Potter imagery, but for us the phrase needed to match both the mouse and the wizard.

image

I liked the idea of the deathly hallows symbol with the mouse ears like above, but just couldn’t find anything that worked with it. Or made sense with it. So then I started searching Harry Potter quotes and phrases and it hit me after seeing someone else’s design with “My Patronus is a flamingo.” My Patronus is a Mouse!! It’s perfect and with a little help from Sarah and Amy on design details (mostly what to edit out, I may post my edit on Instagram.) it was done and ready to be cut with my silhouette cameo machine.

image

The black glitter design looked great on both our grey and coral colored shirts and would look equally great on most any shirt color. If you’re like a few of my friends who just had to have one, well then you’re in luck because here it is: the big giveaway! Since I’ll be cutting the decals myself, I’m going to give the winners (yep, gonna give THREE away!) a choice of car decal, iron-on decal, or nail decals! Yes, you read that right! I also made nail decals and while they don’t feature the patronus phrase, they’re still super cute!

image

If you’d like a chance to win, then be sure you’re following us on instagram and are a part of our private fb group. If you’d like to be added, just search mouse and monorail on fb and click join. I’ll be posting instructions on both instagram and in our fb group so as long as you’re following and have joined the group, you’re ready to play for your chance to win! The first game will be on instagram tomorrow, Friday 11 March to give you all time to join our fb group. The fb games will begin on Monday of this next week. And if participation goes well, I may even give more away leading up to the Harry Potter podcast episode!

Okay, so what if you’re not into the whole Harry Potter thing and want to go full-on Disney for those super cute matching Disney shirts? Fear not because there are lots of great places to look!! Here’s 4 ways you can score those super cute Disney shirts:

1.The most obvious here is the Disney store online and the shop Disney parks app both have a good selection of apparel that will keep your Disney look sharp and fresh as they have a good bit of the latest trending looks. With this option you can snag fun shirts that are specific to the parks, however you won’t be able to get them all matching for your family since some styles are only available in certain sizes.

image

2. There’s other websites to order from too! Don’t forget places like Redbubble and Zazzle!! Redbubble features plenty of fun Disney looks from dinglehoppers to snarfblats, there’s a little bit of everything! Amy got her little mermaid inspired shirts from Redbubble and Sarah found her super cute Starbucks and Disney tee at happily ever tees.

And don’t miss out on our own exclusive merchandise over on Zazzle!! You can find our shop here.

3.Buy from a local Mom who makes custom stuff!! You can get exactly what you want when you order from someone local and it’s a great way to support local businesses. We have several friends that make custom shirts and while I’m definitely going to give them a shoutout, you can always ask around in your own community to see who might make custom Disney shirts as well.

Sarah’s instagram friend @HadleyKateDesigns made these adorable cruise shirts and I’m sure they looked fantastic aboard the Magic.

My friend Jennifer makes some super cute monogrammed stuff over at her shop The Peppermint Pig. (And isn’t her logo just the cutest?! Not like I designed it or anything.. 😉 )

 

And my friend Kim at Stitches etc by Kim can work with you to create just about any look you’d like!

4. DIY. Seriously! You don’t have to be super crafty to come up with some fun shirts! To start, check out my post with easy instructions on how to create your own tie-dye Mickey ears. This project is great for kids (if you do the setup work) and my kids LOVE that they actually added the color to their own shirts!

Because I have a silhouette cutting machine, I was able to make our mouse patronus shirts pretty easily, but if you don’t have one there’s a way to create a stencil using freezer paper! No really!! Go search Pinterest for freezer paper stencil. You can do lots with it! I had a blast making these best friends shirts for my kids and their bff’s. You can also join groups on fb like “Disney silhouette crafters” to find project ideas, exchange tips, and even download shared files! Have fun with it and search for easy DIY projects for ideas to jumpstart your project. Most of all, believe in yourself and just go for it!!

Fighting the Post-Disney Blues

Hey howdy hey folks!! I just got back from a week-long Disney land and sea vacation and like most Disney vacation fans, I’m experiencing the post-Disney Blues. But worry not!! I’ve got a bag of tricks to help me cope and I’m here to share it all with you.

Post Disney blues

From the amazing entertainment, attractions, destinations, FOOD, and most of all, customer service when on a Disney vacation, it’s often an abrupt reality check when you finally arrive home. But there are plenty of ways to help you enjoy your recent trip and appreciate it. Here’s six ways I’ve found to help you cope with the post-Disney vacation blues.

  1. Listen to Disney music/radio/podcasts. This is something that you can do right from the minute you hop in the car or set foot in the airport. First off, be sure to follow us in your favorite podcast app! We love discussing all things Disney and have a variety of topics to choose from. Just scroll through our feed and choose which episodes most appeal to you. You can even select episodes you know you’ll want to listen to and download them to your device in case you don’t have service when you want to listen. disney bluesMy family loves listening to Disney music on Spotify (and don’t worry, you can totally listen for free!) and they’ve got lots of Disney music to choose from. You can also purchase the Official Parks Music Album from the Disney Music Store. If you want something more like online radio however, a great app for parks music is the DPARKRADIO app. They broadcast all sorts of great parks attractions music and since music has a way of transporting you back, you won’t have to jump back into reality cold turkey. Heck, with these options, you don’t ever have to leave!!!disney blues2. Watch your favorite Disney parks shows, parades, and more live on social media. Searching and following other accounts that frequently broadcast live from the parks is a great way to get started. If you search @Disney in the app, you can find several verified Disney accounts to follow. Most social media apps will allow you to turn on notifications for when people go live at Disney locations.disney blues

3. Watch a Disney movie that was referenced while you were at Disney and haven’t seen before. It’ll make you appreciate that moment more even if you’re not actually there. We hadn’t seen The Emperor’s New Groove, and there was a bit in the Disney Dream’s Villains Tonight! show where Yzma and Kronk ride an attraction car and it even has the whole “. ¡Por favor manténgase alejado de las puertas! ” bit. I chuckled because of that, but when I watched the movie Saturday night after we returned home, it was much funnier upon seeing that there’s actually a scene where they do the whole ride bit! Love it and totally made me enjoy that little scene even more. The cruise shows were FANTASTIC! image

4. Sort through and process your photos and videos. Go through your MDE account and review all of your Photopass photos your purchased with your memory maker. If you pre-purchase Memory Maker at least 3 days before your first day there, you can access your photos either through the app, or by logging in to your MDE account online and clicking on Photopass. I found that if you click Memory Maker, it just takes you to the page to buy Memory Maker. Your purchased photos through your Memory Maker are actually found by clicking the Photopass link. I also found that our iPhone apps had more trouble loading our photos than our android-based counterparts did. disney bluesMy app still hasn’t loaded any photos beyond the first hour of our MK day even though A) It’s been more the the 24-48hrs they suggest it will take for them to all appear, and B) They all show if I login to MDE through a web browser. So just a heads up, don’t panic (as I did) if they don’t show up in your app! They were all there when I logged in via desktop browser. ? Create vacation videos to share and enjoy. A great vacation video can not only help you remember and appreciate your favorite Disney moments, but it can also make a great gift for family members. We created a fun video of our 2014 trip and my 4yo asks to watch it all the time. It’s a great way for kids to remember and appreciate what they were able to experience as well! And don’t forget to get them printed!! You can even create a fun Disney photo wall in your home!disney blues

5. Don’t be afraid to browse future Disney vacation options. Just “window shopping” can help ? And who’s gonna know anyway? Heck, go all out and have your Disney travel agent price out the most extravagant trip you can think of. Bucket list kind of stuff. Seeing those numbers could be sobering but also make you appreciate the amount of money you just spent and what you got for it on your most recent vacation. You don’t always have to spend a lot to have an amazing time! And no matter how much or little you spend, a Disney vacation will always have magical moments. They’re not using the hashtag #powerofmagic for nothing after all! Disney blues 6. Share your favorite memories with us! We’d love to publish your stories on our blog. You can also share by posting on our fb page, www.facebook.com/mouseandmonorail, tweet us @mouse_monorail, or tag us on Instagram @Mouseandmonorail!image

So that’s how I usually cope with the post-Disney Blues. What are some of the ways you cope? ~Meredith °o°

Countdown to Adventure

Hey everyone!! Today I’ve got a free download (printable) for you! It includes the “Countdown to Adventure” clouds, balloon template, and the balloon holder box and UP inspired house designs.

 

For those of you who might not listen to our podcast, I’m in full-on planning mode for our upcoming WDW park day and DCL cruise. We’re really excited and our countdown recently reached double digits!! I’ve been wanting to do something fun with the kids for a countdown for a while and now that we’re under 100 days, it’s finally time to get a move on lol.

2015-10-29 01.18.59

I browsed pinterest for fun countdown calendars and found some really cute ones. For our family, we needed something that could be high up so that our fur baby and real baby, won’t be able to reach it and tear it up (this reason alone is why I personally won’t do the paper chain ones. They’re super cute, just wouldn’t work here haha). I found a cute idea from a girl who was doing a countdown to her Disney College program.

 

I loved it and immediately knew how to make our own version. Flashback to Boo’s 6th birthday party. She had a Disney themed party and pretty much had any movie and character presented as long as it was Disney. In leiu of cupcakes, she had her Daddy bake some of his special cupcakes and they became balloons for Carl Frederickson’s house. I let my husband handle the cupcakes and I made the board. 2014-04-19 15.29.05

I found a blue-paper foam core board at hobby lobby and cut around little white cloud shapes out of cardstock. On the main cloud, I printed out Happy 6th Birthday and cut around it as well. As for the actual house, I just found a photo online for reference and drew out my own house in adobe illustrator. (Yes, I have graphic design background and it served me well here). By making my own, I could dictate how large I wanted it when printed. I figured out my size, printed it out, and pasted it on the board along with all the clouds. Then we just added cupcakes. Easy peasy!

2015-10-23 17.04.45

Back to this week, once I saw her pin I knew I wanted to reuse this board for our countdown project. To start, I grabbed a pack of bright colors paper from the store and let the kids help me cut out enough balloons for our countdown. We actually did a periscope for this activity too! And you can go ahead and be printing the free printable file while you watch! You can download it here.

Supplies needed:

•blue foam core board

•white cardstock

•colorful paper

•scissors

•glue stick

•old cardboard crayon box insert

•printer

3m photo hanging strips

•the Mouse and Monorail’s “Countdown to Adventure” pdf
2015-10-28 23.19.22

So, for starters, I’ve designed some templates for you since I didn’t have any prepared for myself when cutting out the balloons. You’ll print the pdf that includes three pages on white cardstock. Cut out all three pages’ shapes. Then cut out some random cloud shapes with more white cardstock til you have enough clouds to evenly distribute them on your board. Take the old crayon box insert and glue the printed “Adventure is out there” cover to it. Lay EVERYTHING out on your board first and move things around until you get a layout that looks good to you. Once you’re satisfied with the placement, glue everything down except the crayon box insert. You can probably glue stick it too, but I went on and used some 3m command strips for it just to be sure it doesn’t fall off once the weight of the countdown balloons are inside it.

2015-10-28 23.39.19

 

Now, you’ll cut out your balloons. I’ve included a balloon template on the download, so you can use that or simple just go for it. I had the kids go ahead and number them to practice writing and counting, but you can just cut them out and number them as you go if that’s easier. Once you’ve got everything cut out, use the 3m photo hanging strips to mount your board to the wall. These are fantastic because you can have your board securely attached to the wall, and be able to remove it whenever without leaving damage to your wall. Once you’ve got it hanging, place your balloons in the box and begin gluing your balloons each day. Super simple and so cute!! It’s worth noting though, that you should probably start up high and work your way down to the house so that the balloons overlap each other with the tops showing. You can use whatever you want to do for string, just we’re just using a fine tip sharpie. (You can see where I used the sharpie for the cupcakes, so it looks a bit silly for now til we get enough balloons to start covering them. Eh, it works for us, but you can do yours whichever way is easiest for you) 🙂

2015-10-23 21.06.03-1

 

We can’t wait until we have enough balloons to take off on our adventure!! If you enjoyed this post or know someone who might like it, please share it out and show us yours if you make one! Tweet us, share on fb, or tag us on instagram! ~Meredith ºoº

More Cruisin’ News

Hey howdy hey everyone! Usually it’s Amy’s week here on M&M but seeing as how she just disembarked from the Dream on Monday, Sarah and I are bringing you some more Disney fun while she gets settled back at home. Amy, can’t wait to see photos and hear all about your trip! In the meantime, today I’d like to talk about how my blog post from a few weeks ago came about. If you’re familiar with Fish Extenders (and you should be since Amy posted all about them) then you know that sharing Disney items can be fun and exciting during your Disney cruise. We also had a Disney cruising crash course on our podcast! Over on facebook, there’s a group called the FISH EXTENDER DISNEY CRUISE LINE where you can go to find not only the particular fb group for your actual sail date, but also to find people sharing fun ideas for their gifts. I’ve been a part of the group for several months now and love to follow along and see all the amazing things people come up with. If you’re reading this and have posted there before, shoutout to YOU for being awesome! The group has fantastic admins that are very helpful and work hard to keep the group a drama-free and family-friendly group. If you’re looking to sail, definitely check out this group!

One day I was scrolling through my feed and saw the cutest cruising decal someone had designed and shared. Her name is Jenn and she had used her Silhouette Cameo machine to cut out the design and apply to her car’s back window. I immediately loved it and commented on it. Having a background in graphic design, I knew I could come up with something similar, yet change it up enough to call it my own and share it here with you all. Here’s the original design:

Isn’t it just the cutest?! Well, I set to work on my own and after brainstorming sessions with my Sarah and Amy, I got to work. I was (and still am) super happy with the outcome and hope that you all are enjoying the design as well. If you have your own cricut or silhouette machine, or you just want to see what my design looks like, check it out here. I’d like to thank Jenn for the idea. And what better way to thank her than to actually promote her own design?! She’s had a bit of bad luck today and I’m hoping that this will somehow restore her faith in the honesty of people on the internet. You see, people aren’t always out to play fair and someone ended up copying her design and posting it on the popular website Etsy for sale before she could get hers up in her own Etsy shop called EndUpArt. Okay, so whoever took it made a slight font change, but the graphic and layout are exactly the same! Check it out here:

Screen Shot 2015-09-23 at 10.51.57 AM

 

Now, I don’t want to wrongly accuse but the other account in question didn’t open up shop until 3 days after Jenn’s original fb post. Just seems fishy to me. Heh, get it? Fishy?! Sorry… I digress. Ultimately what I’m trying to say is that if you loved my original design, you can thank Jenn for the initial inspiration. And if you don’t have access to your own vinyl cutting machine and would prefer to purchase a decal instead, please be sure to check out Jenn’s Etsy shop and give her your business. 🙂

 

I guess that’s all for today, but be sure to stay tuned as Amy plans to start sharing about her cruise here on the blog very soon! ~Meredith ºoº

Free Math Worksheets and How-To DIY Coloring Pages

 

MathWorksheetHeroPhoto

Hi everyone! Today I’d like to share a simple DIY project to turn free coloring pages you find online into math worksheets! The concept is simple: find and download a coloring page you like and add on math problems that coordinate with a specific numerical answer. I searched online for a few coloring pages and found a Mickey Mouse football player and Minnie Mouse cheerleader since it’s football season and math coloring worksheets would be a perfect game time activity if you’re watching the big game from home. To download the coloring pages here, simply right click on the coloring worksheet of your choise and choose “save image as” OR hold down on your mobile phone until the menu pops up and choose save photo.

MickeyFootballMath_AU

It really is just that easy! Download the coloring page you want to use (simple line drawing coloring pages with larger sections works best) and add math problems to it. I used photoshop to add the math problems, but if you don’t have photoshop you could always use another program that allows you to place text over photos. There’s even apps for your phones that will do this! Don’t have time to photoshop or play with apps? That’s okay too! Just print out the original coloring page and hand write your math problems and legend before giving it to your child. Easy peasy!!

minniecheerleaderMathWorksheet_AU_

I love this project because of its simplicity! I actually thought of this blog post because my daughter Boo (7yo and 2nd grade) requested I make some for her after she completed a worksheet like this for homework. I figured it’d be easy enough and I could kill two birds with one stone by making a post out of it too. Turns out it was easier than expected! This diy is perfect for kids who need help with specific math concepts. For example, your child is acing addition, but needs help with subtraction, make your worksheet include more subtraction than addition. (Just don’t make it all subtraction! Let’s keep it fun too!) 😉

MickeyFootballMath_UA minniecheerleaderMathWorksheet_UA_

There are loads of coloring page websites to pick from. And though the ones I chose are Disney themed, you can choose just about any character or theme your child would like. I’m including two versions of Mickey and Minnie since Sarah, Amy, and I all hail from Alabama, where football rivalry rules supreme. And although I’ll always be an Auburn Tiger, (and love it!!) I’ve provided coloring sheets for my fellow Alabamians who may not be bleeding orange and blue like me. If you’re not from Alabama, or just don’t have any ties to our top two teams here, I’ve included a blank Mickey and Minnie so that you can include your favorite team colors too! Both Mickey and Minnie feature addition only. But if football just isn’t your thing, no worries!! I made one more of a Toy Story green alien that includes both addition and subtraction.

toy-story_GreenAlienMathWorksheetMickeyFootballMath_BlankminniecheerleaderMathWorksheet_Blank_

 

And that’s it!! Hope your kids have as much fun as I know mine will as soon as I get these printed. And as always, if you like this post, please share it! We’re available on fb, twitter, and instagram. Come follow us and be sure to check out our companion podcast by searching for “Mouse and Monorail” with your favorite podcast listening app.  ~Meredith ºoº

Selfie Sticks are Banned – What Else Can I Not Take Inside the Parks?

Did you hear the news that selfie sticks are banned from all Disney parks effective June 30, 2015. The internet cheered/cried (depending on which side of the selfie stick debate you stand on) with the news. Apparently it wasn’t enough for park guests to be allowed selfie sticks in the parks – they kept trying to sneak them out on rides which is a huge safety risk to the ride and park guests.

Disney tip – the mouse is always watching, even on the rides!

So Disney has added selfie sticks to the list of banned items. Here are some other things that aren’t allowed inside Disney parks (from the official Disney website):

  • Recreational items such as wagons, skateboards, scooters, inline skates, and shoes with built-in wheels such as Heelys.
  • Strollers larger than 36″ x 52″ (92 x 132 cm)
  • Suitcases, coolers or backpacks with or without wheels larger than 24″ (61 cm) long x 15″ (38 cm) wide x 18″ (46 cm) high. Coolers required for medication may be stored in a locker or at Guest Relations.
  • Any trailer-like object that is pushed or towed by an ECV, wheelchair or stroller
  • Wheeled mobility devices with less than 3 wheels and devices that cannot maintain stability and balance when stopped, unpowered or unoccupied. Training wheels or similar modifications are not permitted.
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Weapons of any kind, or objects that appear to be weapons
  • Folding chairs
  • Glass containers (excluding baby food jars and perfume bottles)
  • Pets (unless they are service animals)
  • Balloons, straws and drink lids are not permitted in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park for the safety of the animals
  • Tripod stands or monopod stands that cannot fit inside a standard backpack

As of right now, Disney will still be allowing GoPro brand name body and head harnesses and short, brand name GoPro handles, which thrills me to no end seeing as how I just bought a GoPro for our upcoming Disney trip.

And as always, it’s a good idea to check the official park rules and regulations before heading to Disney theme parks, just to make sure that you are good to go, and don’t have trouble when going through park security. See you tomorrow with more fun stuff from the world of Disney! ~A ºoº

DisneyBounding: Park Style

Do your little ones love to play dress up? Are they fans of looking like their favorite characters? Did you know that dressing up “Disney style” is not just for kids? DisneyBounding is wearing an outfit or ensemble inspired by a favorite Disney character, without actually dressing like them. It’s a subtle nod to your favorite. I’ll start by saying I have yet to DisneyBound, but I’m determined to come up with something for our next trip. The closest I’ve done is Pocahontas braids last weekend, because my thick hair is not a fan of Florida humidity.

I love the idea of DisneyBounding over Cosplay (dressing in full costume as a character) because, let’s face it, most of the year Disney is hot and involves a lot of walking. I cannot imagine enjoying myself in mid-90 degree weather, wearing a costume. But this? Choose an outfit, complete with accessories, where either color, print, or style is inspired by a Disney Character. I could do this!

Are you a Minnie Mouse fan, through and through? Find a cute red cotton skirt, and pair it with a black tank, yellow flats, and some Mouse ears. Perfect!

Any Buzz Lightyear fans? Pair a lime green shirt with white pants and a purple backpack or bag. Turn it up a notch by adding a big lime green or purple watch. Reach for the stars!

Speaking of my Pocahontas braids earlier, what about some khaki shorts, turquoise jewelry, and a fringed purse?? How cute would that be?

And here are a few of my favorites:

Check out Pinterest or disneybound.tumblr.com for some inspiration, and then start digging in your closet!
