My dd and I love the tie-dyed Mickey shirts. Is there a thread on how to do it?

Fun pictures!

We do a fair amount of dressing the kids alike or at least in matching color schemes. But dh and I haven't really gotten on board with it, and here's why -

My DSis & BIL went to WDW on their honeymoon many years ago. We call BIL Eeyore, because of his speech & mannerisms. Well, he got the funniest video clip that's a classic in our family. There was this large group all dressed alike in yellow & black striped polo shirts. The camera followed them on their way for a bit, and then BIL intoned in his Eeyore voice, "There goes the Bumble Bee Family...."

So of course when we started planning this trip for the whole extended family, including Sis & bil, we never even thought of doing matching shirts for everyone. Figured there's no way we'd ever get away with it! But we did plan a few for the kids. We got matching Hawaiian shirts/dresses for them all from Disney online, and then DH decided he liked it so well he wanted one. Then we decided to make matching tees for all the kids for a couple other days, and lo and behold, the men wanted them too!

So, long story longer, all 17 of us are going to have matching safari hat Mickey tees for our Grand Gathering Safari at AK this spring!

I wish I could figure out how to get these bigger, but I am obviously technically challenged. My DH is the creative one in the family. He makes shirts for all of us based around a theme for each day. Last trip, we all were various Pooh characters for our Crystal Palace day. We were Lili and Stich characters for our 'Ohana breakfast. We each had a park icon for one of our days. We had Bugs Life characters for an AK day. And, we also had red shirts with Mickey (for DH) and Minnie (for me, DD, and DNi). You can see some of his handiwork below. He's already working on shirts for our upcoming trip. So far, we're thinking of Villians for MNNSHP, Cinderella charcters for 1900 Park Faire, and the MK Mountains for an MK Day.

I tend to "color coordinate" us when we are at disney. I dress the kids alike sometimes. I've never really been one for the "mommy and Me" and "Dad and Lad" looks...

that being said...lately my step daughter is REALLY into dressing like me. It means SO much to her if I'll wear my pink Mickey crocs when she wears hers. If we had a matching outfit, she'd be over the moon!!

SO...I think we'll do some matching outfits on our disney trip this August. We already have matching "Pirate Girl" outfits...JUST in case there is a PPP when we go!

(i've heard insider rumors!)

I think the matching shirts look great for photos and, more importantly... they really help me keep track of my kids in a crowd!

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

I love all your pics. I am always bugging dh for us to wear matching outfits but he won't.
He had a bad experience when he was a kid. His family all dressed in the same 80's striped rugby shirts, and apparently another family had the same idea (same shirts too) and he ended up following them around the amusement park

DF and I always match when we go. We make
T-shirts about a month before we go and get really excited. As soon as we have a family, you can bet that we'll all be matching!

There is a women who I meet on Dis. She is making a book on scrap booking at WDW (actually 4 books now I think, one for each park.) She is using a few of our pictures in it. She is always looking for pictures and I know one she wanted was a group of kids with mickey bars. I don't know if she ever found it. I would guess since the book is coming out soon. Here is the her web site.

My two dressed alike last year but my DS is going through his "I'm too old and cool for that" phase so he'll be wearing the same color but not customs as his sister on this next trip. I can't get photobucket to work tonight. Once I can access their website I'll post some pics.
