DIY your own Disney-themed t-shirts for even more fun at the parks!
I think I’ve officially been to the Disney parks more as an adult than I went as a child!

My family has been to Disneyland twice during our fall break in the last few years.

That time works best for our schedule, and we love that it coincides with their Halloween celebrations.

I’ve also visited Disney World the last two years on a girls trip with my besties from college!

Let me tell you, a girls trip, sans kids… it’s the best, you guys.

Disney with your kids is an amazing experience – seeing it all through their eyes. But not having to take nap breaks, push strollers, and getting to meet all the princesses (#boymom) is super fun, too!

And DIYing your own Disney-themed shirts, whether for yourself or your entire family, is such a fun idea! 

I swear you get more interaction with the cast members and even some of the characters when you wear custom shirts, and even a little extra pixie dust!

For our girls trip this last April I decided to DIY myself some new Disney-themed t-shirts!

And I’m sharing all the deets on how I made them and how YOU can make them, too!

When I sat down and decided what shirts I wanted to make, I realized that I might be better off just starting on Etsy.

There are already so many great designs on there! And I knew I could modify any files I might need to in my Silhouette software.

This Toy Story #squadgoals shirt is exactly what I had in mind to make. You can find the design here.

The only edit I made was changing the hashtag font from the Walt Disney script to something more similar to the Toy Story font.

You can easily do this yourself with the Gil Sans Ultra Bold font.

TIP: To create the staggered look to the letters, ungroup the phrase and tilt each letter slightly in opposite directions and overlap them. Then use the OFFSET option to create an outline of the phrase.

I cut this design on Metallic Gold Heat Transfer Vinyl.

It was the perfect shirt to wear at Hollywood Studios to meet Woody and Buzz!

For the Magic Kingdom I wanted something more classic.

I didn’t know exactly what I wanted and went down a serious rabbit hole on Etsy looking at designs.

When I stumbled across this Minnie head full of Disney characters I was hooked! (It also comes with a Mickey Head version!)

I used Pewter and Red Metallic Foil Heat Transfer Vinyl for this shirt.

To use two colors on the design I simply ungrouped the file then regrouped all of the characters together and all of the bow parts together and cut them one at a time.

This year we ventured to Epcot which we hadn’t done in the past.

I didn’t have a specific shirt in mind for this park but had seen a super fun shirt using the phrase “The mountains are calling and I must go” that is popular with hikers, campers, and adventurers, but with a Disney twist… with all the “mountain” rides at Disney World!

Granted none of these rides are in Epcot, but I really wanted this shirt!

I found two designs I liked on Etsy, each with different aspects that I liked: one with the arrangement of the words and the other with the image of the rides.

So naturally I purchased both designs and combined the parts I liked on each!

I used Royal Blue Metallic Foil Heat Transfer Vinyl for this one.

 

Fun Fact: I didn’t pay more than $3 for any one design I purchased!

Such cute shirts! My hubby and I have done a trip or two without kids and it is quite magical that way. We also go in the fall but usually more in September just as the kids are all back in school and we find the parks aren't nearly as crowded that way. Thanks so much for sharing these ideas with us at the Summer Time Fun Linky. Pinned.
