My son has always been jeans and polo shirts. When we cruise Disney I wish I had a girl so she could dress as a different princess every night. But my luck she would be a tomboy and wear jeans and a polo.

I'm sure it is not typical, but neither is it really typical for the "average" guest to dress your kids up in custom made dresses at the parks I suppose.

For our up coming 7-night cruise. I am making skirts and tee's for sail away and I made tee's and had a cool skirt for pirate night. I have a couple dresses that I made for our Thanksgiving trip that they can also wear for the cruise so they will wear those as well. We typically wear dresses/skirts most days around here so that is what they wear on the cruise too. I am in the middle of packing right now. For the 7-night cruise with one day before and after the cruise in the park, I have 16 outfits for each girl laid out. Some I made some I bought, some are Disney are some are just more tropical in nature.

But really during the day most kids wear whatever they wear at home. At dinner you will see pretty much everything from princess dresses to shorts.
For us, the theme clothes are fun and practical. It makes it easy for them to get dressed everyday, and very easy to spot them in a crowd. Also, people usually make a fuss over them, which they love.

I agree.

On the cruise itself the girls typically match. It just makes packing and getting ready easier for me (and they look so cute that way). At least for now they both love it and actually request to dress a like even at home more often than not.

This is an example of 2 of the dresses the girls wore on our recent cruise during the day. This was just a day trip to Galveston to see the Magic in port so not actually on the cruise itself.

Sewing is my hobby though so it is fun to make cute little outfits. Planning outfits at Disney World is more detailed because you have a lot more themes I guess you could say. There are different parks with differnt meals planned with the characters. I was very detailed about that (some might call it crazy but like I said I love it and so do the girls so it is okay). On the cruise I have sailaway, pirate night and on the Magic we had character breakfast and tea with Alice so I made plans for those too. We are sailing on the Fantasy in a few weeks so I am using some outfits from our recent WDW trip as well as a new Sailaway and Pirate outfit. A lot of the dinner dresses are just nice dresses the girls own though. (but they still match for almost all of them)

I'm so jealous that you can sew! I am abysmal at it! I can smock, and make simple bishops, so my girls usually hit the park in those, and I order some T's and such from more talented Etsy-ers!

When my boys were under 10, they wore khaki pants and either polos or long sleeved oxfords most nights. For semi formal and formal nights I'd put them in jacket and tie. I think at around 10 I started having my oldest wear a suit on formal night.

I've never let them wear jeans or shorts to dinner. Other than our Dream preview cruise two years ago, we've only ever gone on 7 night cruises. From what I've read, the shorter cruises are a little more casual.
