Advance reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 180 days prior to your visit


That's what it say on the website for the dessert party reservations. I cant find a reservation available on any day between now and the end of my trip. What the heck is up with that????

Wal mart is the place to go for Disney related shirts!!
I avoid Walmart at all costs but last year found matching Mickey shirts for all 3 of my boys( at the time they were 8 months, 5 and 7) I will des be trying again this year. I usually only get one a piece to wear on our first day.
I actually can't wait to take advantage of it Bc normally I would never ever be able to get my 8 year old to wear a Mickey shirt!! Haha

I'm also trying to think of how to tell my boys! 2012 we did a scavenger hunt.. And the final clue led to a huge frames picture of the castle that my son has in his room.. And we put a big X on the pic and the clue said something about that being our destination.
2010 we woke them up and just surprised them and went to the airport. The funny thing is-- all my prep put into the scavenger hunt- it didn't turn out as much excitement as I thought it would! Waking and telling them actually went better.

I'm trying to think of something fun for this year but its hard Bc my 8 year old is into my business like none other right now, he literally listens to everything I say to everyone! Haha so I am afraid hell catch on before then!

I saw Forever 21 had a two different Mickey sweaters, a Toy Story sweater, a Little Mermaid sweater AND an Alice in Wonderland sweater. It seems so weird to me that they'd exclude school aged kids of all genders when Disney is still marketable to adults! I suppose they figure boys don't like Disney past a certain age, but I think they're missing out on a market there.

For those of you with daughters, though, check out Forever 21 or H&M for Disney clothes. They've almost always got something. Depending on their ages and sizes, they could probably fit into them.

We are passing right by the Denver store on Friday (headed to an out-of-town swim meet) so I'm planning to stop by and hope to have better luck in the store. Target in years past has had a pretty good selection of Disney t's, but I haven't seen any this year. Might have to get desperate and try Wal-Mart, which I usually avoid like the plague, lol! I'm also making at least on iron-on for her, she designed a Wall-E one that she really wants, I just haven't been able to find a plain white short sleeve tee anywhere yet, it's all long sleeves and turtlenecks everywhere.
The have Minney shirts in the womens section at my Target. My 11 year old can wear some women's shirts.

I just got my 11 year old and 13 year old adorable Disney shirts in the Target junior section. My 16 year old found a couple of cute ones at Forever 21.

Forever21 sells Disney stuff? I never noticed!

Sorry don't understand where your staying?

Oh YES I LOVE to scrapbook already have two scrapbooks from previous trips there. This will be my 4th trip there. I am so lucky!
Sorry, didn't say. Art of Animation!

We've only been to Disney once since I started scrapbooking (when my oldest was born). I can't wait to make a new one.

On the other subject, I haven't seen anything Disney-clothing-wise for boys at Target recently. Not outside toddler age, anyway.

I believe when they open up for reservations, they open the entire month at once so right now February is open. That also explains why you can't find availability at the moment because the months bookings have been open for a few weeks now which mean they have probably filled up.
There is a thread named (wishes dessert party February now open). I don't have enough posts to add a link, sorry.

I'm sure the demand fluctuates over time. When I was in high school, the Disney store didn't even sell adult sizes. Granted, that was during the time when the Children's Place owned them, so that probably had something to do with it. My friends and I would buy Disney tees that were girls (or boys) XL.

I know my brothers all reached an age when they were no longer interested in Disney much. They might not mind going to the parks, but the Donald Duck or even Cars t-shirts were a little juvenile. I don't even bother trying to pick out Disney themed clothes for DH for our trips, because it's doubtful that he'd wear any of it.
I suppose they probably figure that it makes more sense to market to their stronger demographic.

You're probably right. I suppose it's not that there isn't a market, there just isn't a big enough one to make it worthwhile to them.
