Whenever I plan a trip to Walt Disney World or Disneyland, my first thought is to figure out a rough itinerary; next, my mind goes straight to what outfits I want to pack. I look for inspiration through Instagram, Pinterest, and also knowledge of what I’ve liked on past trips.
I have a few requirements when it comes to outfits for Disney. First of all, they must be comfortable. I’m a Rope Drop to Wishes (well, now Happily Ever After) type of girl. In our most recent trip, we got to the park even before the park even opened with Early Morning Magic!
I highly recommend spending your birthday at Walt Disney World (and getting a button, everybody wishes you a happy birthday AS THEY SHOULD). While my actual birthday day was spent swimming with sea cows (aka Manatees), I’ve considered all week my birthday, including our day at Magic Kingdom. I found the #purplewall and made sure to get a photo. This week has been an absolute blast, and Brad has become a rather good #instagramhusband 😂. My shirt says it all, best birthday ever.
Second, I want the outfits to be cute. I always plan on lots of photos during our vacation so I want to make sure that I like how the outfits look in photos as well.
Life is too short to take it seriously. Vacation should be fun. Use this time to bring back childhood excitement and wonder; and don’t be afraid of what others think. Brad and I recently traveled to Orlando and spent a few days at Walt Disney World. Doing Disney as an adult is a different experience; however, it can be just as fun! Take your time to look around and see all the details of the park that you miss when rushing across the parks. Head over to the blog to find out more details on how to spend a day at Animal Kingdom as an adult. . . . . . #waltdisneyworld #skymileslife #animalkingdom #wallsofdisney #wdwbestdayever #walltraveled #basicdisneygirl #acolorstory #disneyfashion #wallsofharambe #wallsofanimalkingdom #instadisney #disneylife #wdw #openmyworld #wheretofindme #mytinyatlas #thetravelwomen#ladiesgoneglobal #travelinladies #sheisnotlost #globelletravels #citizenfemme #girlaroundworld #sheexplores #girlvsglobe
No matter how many different shorts I buy, I almost always end up wearing the same pair at Disney (good thing I have a couple pairs). These Hudson Shorts are seriously the best shorts ever. They have a nice bit of stretch (for when you enjoy a selection of Mickey shaped treats), and are nice and cool for the warm Disney days.
This girl runs on Starbucks and Pixie Dust. One of our first stops each morning was to get coffee. Some mornings it was on our way to the parks, and others was once we got inside the gates. I had so much fun looking for various “walls” at Disney to be fun photo backgrounds. I definitely didn’t even find them all! This #bubblegumwall is a fun one as it features my signature color, and a touch of Millennial Pink. 😉 Where is your favorite place to take photos at Walt Disney World? . . . . . #disneyfamily #waltdisneyworld #disneysmmoms #disneystyle #disneyootd #disneyparks #wdw #disney #disneymagic #disneyfreak #disneypixar #disneypics #disneyside #disneygram #happyplace #letsgosomewhere #thehappynow #makingmemories #epcot #epcotcenter #festivalofthearts #disneybound #wallsofdisney #wdwbestdayever
While sneakers might not be the most fashionable choice, your feet will definitely thank you after 30k+ steps (plus hours of standing). I was always surprised to see how many people walk around the parks in really uncomfortable looking footwear. I like to bring a couple different pairs to alternate throughout the week to make sure that I’m not rubbing the same locations every day. I HIGHLY recommend to pack some blister guard band-aids.
Do you have a Star Wars and Disney fan in your house? This tee is one that I made for my trip to Disneyland back in March. I knew that they now had Star Wars characters that you could meet so it was perfect for my interaction with Darth Vader. A couple weeks ago I decided that the tee needed a matching tumbler for the summer so now I can completely geek out in my outfit.
As for tees, I always have a fun time making my own. I try to make each outfit themed towards the park I’m visiting that day. I wore my Darth Vader with Mickey balloon to meet Star Wars characters at Disneyland, and my “Best Birthday Ever” tee for the day I visited Magic Kingdom to celebrate my birthday.
When my mom and I booked our trip to Disneyland a couple months ago, one if the first things I did was make myself shirts for each day of the trip. This one was definitely my favorite as I truly do run in Starbucks and Pixie Dust. Make sure to check out the blog today for some other fun shirts that are perfect for any upcoming Disney vacation.
A great Disney outfit wouldn’t be perfect without some great Ears and a cute manicure. I LOVED the ears that I got from Oh Toodles Ears off Etsy. Not only were they adorable, they were super comfortable. Normally I can’t wear headbands because they give me headaches, but I had absolutely no problem with these (plus, they stayed on my head too). The owner was also AMAZING to work with. She made sure to make sure that the ears arrived in time for my vacation and I got TONS of compliments on them throughout the parks.
But first, coffee. When we got to Disney Springs on Sunday, my first stop was @starbucks because it was needed. 😂 My coffee went perfect with my Starbucks cold cup ears from @ohtoodlesears too! We are having such a great time so far in Orlando, I can’t wait to share more details once I take a break from having fun. Also, I’m loving how great my subtle Mickey head nails turned out 😍😍.
I always have a great time at Disney, and hope that this has given you some great ideas on what to wear for your next Disney vacation.
