Disney World touring involves a lot of walking-and since it’s Florida, you are bound to be in the warm sun! You may see many families who have created coordinating t-shirts, the little princesses fresh from the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, and even dads sporting their Mickey Mouse gear. Comfort is key, yes….but you don’t have to sacrifice your style while in the Disney parks either! So today, I am going to share with you What to Wear in the Disney Parks!
Comfortable walking shoes. This can be a “no brainer”. But, if you don’t like the confines of tennis shoes, what is your option? Many shoe brands have very comfortable flip flops. Look for athletic brands like Nike or Adidas. They make flip flops with extra cushion. I personally love my Reefs while in the parks as well. In fact, I never wear tennis shoes while at Disney! My children are comfortable in their Crocs, as well as their Fila Skeletoes. We always pack at least two pairs of shoes per person, in case they get wet or they need to change.
Dresses or skirts. I prefer dresses while in the Disney parks. They are so much cooler, and to be honest, I like my family to look decent for those photo opportunities. Often my daughter is dressed in sundresses as well. I like these because while she is in the stroller, her little knees are always exposed to the sun-and sundresses do a good job of keeping her knees covered.
Cargo Shorts. For the boys and my husband, cargo shorts are awesome. I love these because of all the pockets. Our boys looove their Disney maps, and often keep small hard candy or maybe even their digital cameras in their pockets. Since my husband also carries his phone with him, the pockets keep it safe and easy to get to. Plus, cargo shorts tend to be a tad longer, and keep their legs a little more protected from the sun.
A backpack. I know, it’s not clothing. BUT, my husband always has our backpack on in the parks. It’s actually a camera backpack, and has plenty of room for everything we need. We stash my DSLr camera, autograph books, pens, bandaids, and sometimes dry snacks in the backpack.
A crossbody bag. My COACH cross body bag is my “go to” bag for the parks. It easily holds my small point and shoot digital camera, lip balm, gum, and my phone. Plus, it is easy to stash on the rides as well.
Matching Disney themed shirts. There are loads of ways to get your family to coordinate for some of your Disney days. If you are like me, you are crafting shirts for the kiddos a week or so in advance. There are tons of tutorials on Pinterest for creating tye-dyed Disney shirts, and you can even make a quick trip to the Disney Store to pick out some essentials for those character meals.
And of course, you have the obvious things to wear-sunglasses and sunsreen, right? What are your “must haves” for fashion in the Disney parks?
