I ALWAYS match my boys. I think its easier to describe what they are wearing should one get "lost" PLUS they look SOOOOOO CUTE...Next time might be harder since I am pregnant and possibly having a girl(find out in 5 days!!!)and my oldest will be 10 and probably not "into" it. Would love to have all three of my kids match...

I think my boyfriend would put me in an asylum if I wanted to wear matching shirts on a Disney trip. He wants to go but wouldn't want to go "that far"
He embraces my Disney addiction though...IDK he might not after he finds out Ive been listening to mouseworld radio since he has been gone all week for work!!!

We had matching frog shirts for our last trip. DH's was a scientist frog that said "Let's do science." Mine was a builder frog that said, "Ready to Build." DD6 was a wind-up toy from that said, "I get wound up." The baby's was a tadpole that said "Work in Progress." I was covering up the baby and mine in the family pic, but in our BIG family pic you can kind of see better, but we didn't get them for my parents, uncle or brother & his wife.

My boys match every day of the trip. We do the whole family at least once-mostly just to get a picture. I am not to keen on matching, but I do love the matching pictures we have each year.

Saw this post & wanted to respond.
We went this past Dec when it was cold, and had 4 boys, 7,6,3,3. (3 sons & a nephew)
We bought matching fleece jackets for them to wear. You see four fleece jackets, you have all 4 kids.
We GOT to Disneyworld, and found they were the same Jackets as the Canadian Cast members (Shown here with Cast Member Hannah)

same here, yet he'll wear full pirate costume on DCL for MNSSHP. He does have disney tshirts he only wears on vacation, we just don't match.

really cute when kiddos do imo.

my DIL has asked me to attempt to make my GD who will be 1-1/2 y.o. then one of the disney themed pillow case dresses (which i plan on tackling after my youngest graduates from HS next month). If i can find instructions for an adult pattern, was considering making DIL one too as a surprise to match (she's a skinnie minnefigured she could wear it as a shirt with tshirt underneath?) thinking it'd be cute. Can't say i've ever seen anybody wearing one, let along an adult...any thoughts on this?

My husband is actually the one who wants us to match! I think we are going to just do color coordination and not complete matching I don't want to add to the budget too much by buying matching sets of clothes for each day. So we're going to have a red day, blue day, yellor day, etc.

When DH was a kid, his mother would make matching plaid shirts for their whole family (3 brothers) to wear to theme parks. Oddly enough, it hasn't scarred him for life. In fact, HE was the one subtly hinting that we should have at least one matching whole-family T-shirt to wear to WDW. I am not a big matching person (except DDs occasionally), but I think I might have to go check out the DISigns board. I think I can get DS15 on board if we are ALL wearing the same shirt and I promise he never has to wear it outside of our trip.

We do matching t-shirts or coordinating outfits on most if not all of our days in the parks. There are too many to post over the last 5 or 6 trips. You can see lots in our vacation videos in my signature.

Here's a couple:




Last May my brother-in-law didn't want to participate in the matching t-shirts b/c he didn't want to stand out. He hates being the center of attention. Well that was a mistake. Everywhere we went people kept asking him why we didn't get him the family t-shirt, thereby making him the real standout in the family.

This year, I tried my hand at matching tye dye. They turned out cute, but that was a messy experiment. Think I'll order those from etsy next time. My husband rues the day I found etsy.com.

If you check the disneystore.com website often, they usually have some pretty good sales. It might not break the budget.
