Dressing for July 4th at Walt Disney World: Magical Blogorail Red

Welcome to those of you joining me from Frontierland Station and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

Each time I go to Walt Disney World I spend quite a bit of time planning what we will wear.  Will we wear matching shirts or matching colors?  Will we wear whatever we want?  Will we at least wear a shirt with a Disney theme or character?  I ask myself all these questions and more!

When the topic "Celebrating America at Disney" was chosen for this month's loop, I immediately thought about what I would wear to the parks if I were to celebrate America's birthday at Walt Disney World!  My first task was to do a google search.  I was able to find more than I thought for my family!

Disney Patriotic Trading Pins
 After I was able to find all these great American/ Patriotic items to wear in the parks for July 4th, I decided we should make our own Americana Disney shirts!  You can find the directions to tie dye your own Mickey Mouse shirt here.  Stay tuned for photos from our July 4th celebration in our matching shirts! :)

  1. Your shirts look great. There are so many options out there, but I often end up making our shirts. They always generate more compliments than the store-bought kind, and it gives me a sense of accomplishment. How many sets of tie-dye shirts have you made?

    1. Thanks Heidi! This is the second set we've made. Hubby's was too small so I have to get him a new one before our fall trip!

  7. I'm not as creative making my own shirts, but we tend to buy new Etsy shirts for trips - definitely a fun way to add to a 4th of July celebration at Disney!
