As we get ready to go back to Disney, I wanted to share some of Harper’s outfits with you. This is our first time going where the weather is on the cooler side, which means she can really dress up. In the spring/summer months, the heat is unbearable sometimes, so usually during those trips I go for comfort and function rather than style. Her outfits usually consist of Disney shirts paired with denim shorts/sweat shorts and shoes I know she’ll be able to run around in all day. Yet, this time we’re packing cute outfits with jackets for night-time and even taking some of her princess dresses to wear in the park! This is her first time going while the Christmas decorations are up, so I am treating it like her first time. Meaning, the pictures have to be special lol. After taking her so many times in the spring, I didn’t care what either of us wore, instead I always tried to take photos in the same place for memory sake to show her growth. I’ll link all clothing items in each outfit if still available and will do an updated post with pictures from the trip once we return. If you are new here, reference my conquering disney & universal post for additional deets.

When packing Harper’s suitcase, I of course pack pajamas for each night and double the amount of underwear for her. I map out her outfits before hand according to park/day/weather and usually pack an extra outfit or two if we do a “nice” dinner as well as if she gets her clothes dirty. She’s rather good about keeping her clothes clean (knocks on wood) so sometimes I just change her outfit for the sake of pictures lol.

lastly, some tips and tricks for shopping for Disney apparel are:

  1. Stores like gap, old navy, and target always have Disney clothing! Zara has just recently added Disney merchandise; they have a lot for all seasons and sizes.
  2. For little girls, wander into the boy’s section! If you do purchase t-shirts from the boy’s section, size down. Harper is a 3T in girls, yet in boy’s clothing I buy 18 months. Buying smaller makes the shirts look slimmer (like a girl’s shirt would), aren’t as long and by rolling up the sleeves it makes it look cuter!
  3. For toddlers, if something is only sold in big kids,  get it. Harper’s sweatshirts are all from the big kid section at Zara which starts at age 5. I often buy depending on how I plan to style it. For example, the black sweatshirt is a 5. It fit’s a little loose but for a sweatshirt and biker short outfit it’s adorable. Also, the grey sweatshirt is a size 8 but looks adorable put on as a dress with the sleeves folded up. I paired it with shorts just in case it’s a little chilly.
  4. When you do go to Disney, buy merchandise! Her mickey mouse items are high quality and won’t be found in traditional Disney stores. Also, her mickey mouse hat is custom with her name embroidered on the back (keepsake ideas).
  5. Only pack shoes you know your child can tolerate. Disney is not the time or place to break in new shoes.

6. Keep the Disney magic alive and try to incorporate it in every aspect of the trip, even for adults. My favorite part from the trip itself is buying clothes and pajamas so that everything is disney.
