Wait, don’t go running and screaming just yet! There are LOTS of way to make a super cute Disney t-shirt and most of them can save you some money. Saving money is great if you’re planning a trip to any Disney destination! The wonderful thing about making shirts for yourself and your family/friends is that it’s so customizable. Everyone can have their favorite characters and colors, and Uncle Jerry can have his moisture-wicking active wear too! Seriously though, making shirts on your own is a great way to really show off your Disney favorites.

Etsy To The Rescue!

Everyone wants for their kiddos to look super cute on their WDW vacation, but sometimes it is hard to know where to start when planning those looks. Today I wanted to share with you a couple of etsy vendors that I’ve used for our Disney purchases and can personally vouch for the quality of their work. Let’s get started!

flight Our Mickey silhouette with number shirts were bought from Maggie’s Castle as iron on transfers for $3 each. I picked the fabric I liked, and then ironed them on to solid shirts I bought from Michael’s. Easy-peasy, and the shirts held up well even after being washed, and were a huge hit for the airplane ride to Orlando.
familyMy favorite Disney related etsy purchase would have to be our Mickey tie-dye shirts from Swirly Sensations. They are a custom tie-dye vendor, and their shirts are amazing. I picked our shirts out for our trip 2 years ago, and all I had to do was pick the colors I wanted and they worked their magic. Then, on our trip last September, I wanted to get shirts for my parents and Roo. She couldn’t guarantee that the colors would be an exact match because of how the dyes are mixed, but they were perfect! We got so many compliments on these shirts, and they look so bright and colorful in pictures. Love, love, love!ring

I purchased this Minnie Mouse ring and matching bow earrings from Monster Bakery for Roo’s birthday party next weekend. They are so cute, and for only $10 for the set, what’s not to love? I can’t wait to wear them for all my Disney related events!

So those are a few of my favorite Disney etsy purchases that I wanted to share. Remember when searching for etsy vendors for any purchase to make sure you read the reviews to see if their previous customers were happy with their purchases. You can definitely find some super cute Disney related items on etsy for very reasonable prices. That makes this Memory Makin’ Mama one happy camper! Happy searching! ~A ºoº
