You may have to promise the teenage kids that nobody they know will see them but, matching shirts make corralling everyone so much easier. It also makes it easier after you've jumped out of line to take the toddler to the restroom for the third time in an hour to be able to point to the obviously matching group and ask to be let back in with the rest of the family. Here we are even having convinced the my oldest's fiance to conform.

Well we have only been once as a family. When we go next time I plan on doing matching shirts. DH said he will only wear them at disney, under his work shirts and to bed.

Which ones?? I got them all someplace different. The peter pans outfits were handpainted by my aunt. The safari shirts I got from the site that isn't supposed to be named, and the mickey gingham outfits were made by a lady at www.boneful.com

You can find many custom clothing items on etsy (and ebay of course) by searching for custom mouse or custom minnie. I have found my daughters custom outfits that way.

Yes, me and the DH match- we have matching visors and matching jackets. Plus, we both have lots of T-shirts that we wear all the time, even when we're not at Disney...

I really liked the MGM outfits--my little man is in a 3t and I am having a hard time finding things for him and his sister (8mths at trip) to coordinate with. I loved the Peter Pan and the Safari. Thanks

We did matching outfits (or at least coordination of the outfits) in August (& I've already got 3 out of 6 planned for our OCT trip) - yeah, I'm freakin' DH out a bit & now I'm getting more ideas!!
you do get noticed more, plus for us w/ 3 princes- we got noticed a lot. We had (IMO)- a lot of YOMD surprises

I don't usually dress the kids alike, but I did on our most recent trip. I'll probably try to continue for as long as they will let me!

I'm jealous, my DH and DD(14) won't dress alike, now my DS(6)is still too young to care, maybe he and I should dress alike. Anyway, just wanted to say GREAT PICS and BEAUTIFUL FAMILIES!!!!!!!
