YOU’VE BOOKED THE FLIGHTS, RESERVED THE HOTEL AND BOUGHT PARK TICKETS.
YOU EVEN HAVE THE DISNEY COUNTDOWN CALENDAR APP ON YOUR PHONE.
BUT… WHAT WILL YOU WEAR?
When planning our vacations, my husband and I like to share the research and preparation. Which is why while he was identifying the best flights, reading hotel reviews, determining the top eateries, memorising Park maps and locations of the choice attractions, I was very busy devising a daily outfit guide to match my PANDORA Disney Bracelet designs!
Those who are unfamiliar with Disney Parks and the terms ‘rope drop’ or ‘fast pass’, may be surprised to discover that planning is an absolute must when it comes to your Disney outfits.
However, imagine this scenario: After waking up late feeling jet lagged, you are unable to find anything cute in the suitcase. An hour later you finally head off to the Park, dressed in jeans and a uninspiring top. After standing in line for another hour you enter Disney but don’t feel at all magical on noticing all the couples dressed in humorous matching shirts and pretty ears. You kick yourself as you recall your Minnie ears are still at home stuffed at the back of the cupboard.
Compare that dismal story to the following sequence of events: You feel a little jet lagged but get dressed and out quickly as the day’s outfit is already laid out with your matching ears and coordinating PANDORA Disney bracelet. You made it to rope drop and only queued 10 minutes for the Pandora Flight of Passage ride! You feel magical after the fourth lady compliments you on your clothes and inquires on where you bought those cute ears!
Each ensemble has its own theme, starting with loveable Wall-e and Eve.
Matching tees is fun at Disney, but with so many options it can be hard to choose. I love the colourful yellow and blue Wall-e and Eve t-shirts from Pink2PetalApparel Etsy shop. Not only are they cute and good quality, if you stand side by side Wall-e and Eve hold hands!
Contrasting blue shorts bought off eBay created a quirky look with Minnie Ears, another eBay bargain. The adorable Cath Kidston x Disney Mickey & Minnie Little Patches Bag and the pretty pink Adidas Samba Primeknit trainers complete the outfit.
Filled with pretty pastels the Dumbo inspired bracelet is perfect for little baby Dumbo.
Based on the famous Fantasyland ride, the sweet Disney Parks Flying Dumbo charm soars at the centre of the PANDORA Disney Mickey Bracelet. The sparkling Aurora and Cinderella Signature Colour Murano charms highlight Dumbo’s blue and pink enamel details.
Combine multiple characters for a magical Disney mashup!
Cinderella visits the 100 Acre Wood in this beautiful blue costume with matching handmade ears. Pooh bear and friends float from yellow and red balloons on the splendid Cath Kidston x Disney Winnie-the-Pooh dress. Both pretty and practical the Adidas Samba Primeknit trainers are comfortable for a day at the Park.
Travel the seas to visit Moana, Lilo and Stitch in this colourful island design.
Glittering blue spirals represent the Pounamu stone on my handmade Moana inspired Disney Ears. Lush ferns and contrasting pink flowers provide a warm Hawaiian feel.
Moana’s epic journey across the ocean is illustrated on the PANDORA Mesh Bracelet with the Sail Away Pendant and tropical charms. Meanwhile Lilo and Stitch play in the sand surrounded by Sparkling Palm Trees.
Bright florals provide an English influence to Mademoiselle Belle’s French tale.
Inspired by the Beauty & The Beast colour scheme, these red and navy trousers from Joules compliment the cheery red Mrs Potts Tea & Biscuit Company tee from Park Bound Emporium on Etsy. Decorated with Golden statin, my handmade Disney Ears mirror Belle’s beautiful ballgown and feature the legendary rose.
Belle’s adventure is depicted with the Classic Minnie and Belle’s Signature Colour Murano charms on the PANDORA Mesh Bracelet. At the centre of the design, Mrs Potts & Chip are ready to tell the tale over a nice cup of tea!
Think happy thoughts and fly with me to Neverland.
One of my favourite memories from Disney World, was meeting Tinker Bell while dressed in my Tink inspired green dress. Especially when the cheeky little fairy sprinkled pixie dust over my handmade Disney Ears!
A miniature Neverland features on the PANDORA Disney Mickey Bracelet with the adorable Tinker Bell’s Dress charm surrounded by stars and flowers. Meanwhile the Disney Parks Peter Pan charm is nearby provoking Captain Hook on the Jolly Roger!
Rock the dots with a Minnie Mouse inspired look.
Disney snacks decorated with Minnie’s iconic polka dots and trademark bow make the Ice Cream Cone shirts from Enchanted By Designs ideal for a day at the Park. A vintage Disney World cap is the cherry on the top!
The style is completed with a Mickey and Minnie themed bracelet. Minnie’s Signature Look and Classic Minnie Murano charms are scattered throughout the design with the Mickey & Minnie Vintage Car charm at the centre. The fun Disney Parks Mickey and Minnie Ear Hat charms provide the perfect finishing touch.
