I love all of these matching shirt pictures.
We usually match a few days, but not every day.
I think the matching shirts actually helped to get my family picked to be Grand Marshalls in the parade at MK --twice.

The first time we were wearing "Uncle Sam" Mickey t-shirts. The second time (2 years later) we were wearing red polo shirts that I had embroidered on my Disney embroidery machine with our favorite character and our names. It was a wonderful experience. No one ever believes me that we were Grand Marshalls 2 times.

We also had 2 sets of matching shirts for our 16 member family reunion last year (ages 6 months to 62 years). Everyone loved the attention so much that we washed them and wore them again. It made for great photopass pictures.

I don't think I have enough posts to do pictures...I will try again later.

We bought them from disneyshopping. They are actually men's t-shirts, but I wanted them to all match. They were on sale for $5 each. Plus, I wear a smaller size in a mens shirt.

I want to play!

I spent a lot of time making matching outfits for 5 kids for our last trip and the adults matched some of the time too. Here's a few I already had uploaded.

These are gorgeous! We tend to just have the kids wear matching outfits. I'm nearly done with the ones for this trip, just need to finish DD's AK skirt and DS's HS shirt.

I made all of them. One for each of the seven days we were there. It is not too hard, just give it a try! Thanks!

I love matching outfits! We usually match, or at least coordinate. Here are some pictures from our trip in December:

Also, we don't just match at Disney, I like to match for other vacations and holidays too!

Princess Tiffany - your family is beautiful! I love the sweet, ruffled pants that your daughters wear with their dresses. So cute!

Princ Tiff - I have seen your trip reports and have always thought you are definitely a Family Clothier Over-Achiever" Actually I love it. You have to make other mom's jealous. I admire your skills and follow through.

All the pics of this thread have got me thinking. How I can I convince DH into wearing matching shirts. Also DD15 - is way too cool. And twin DS5 - like the opposites.

Maybe I should rent a family to match with....

I keep thinking this same thing. I have been sewing and plan on having the kids matching and I will at least coordinate with them but...my DH is not so on board with this! But if I happened to pack the suitcase with a few of these coordinating outfits and "accidently" unpack some of his other things.... He would probably just go wash his other clothes in protest. Maybe I will have my kids ask him until he breaks down and says yes!!!
Maybe bribe your older DD, it would be worth it for the good pictures!!!
