When I started planning one of our "big" Disneyland vacations, I was pregnant, and knew I would be carrying around a 2 1/2 month old by the time our trip rolled around. I am your average Disney mom....I wear my Disney character shirts just like my kids do (and my husband). I love having pictures of all of us in our Disney gear, with the characters.
My dilemma for the trip mentioned was, I knew the baby wouldn't be out and about at only 2 1/2 months old, so buying a whole lot of Disney themed clothes for her just for pictures would be pointless. Cue babywearing here! This is also how I discovered Disneybound!
I have always used baby carriers for my kids, but I had never heard of a wrap before. Once I learned about different carriers, I knew this would be my go-to Disney "outfit". The first wrap that I purchased was a gorgeous Natibaby Faelinh (pictured below). I love the castles, reminds of of the Disney castles! The wrap is black, so I was able to wear it for an "Anna" type Disneybound (blue skirt, black top). I also made a diy purple wrap (pictured above) so I could wear it with a green skirt to disneybound as Ariel.
As my youngest is now a year old and wanting to be out of the carrier more, I have been back to wearing easier carriers, such as my Lillebaby and Mei Tai. The Mei Tai is what I have on in the first picture above, with an extra small women's t-shirt slipped over it for a Disney themed carrier (stained glass Beauty and The Beast shirt from Hot Topic)! And the last picture...our Anna jacket fits over the Lillebaby carrier and my daughter on chilly days!
Here are my top 3 tips on creating YOUR Disney look:
1. Stick to your favorites. It makes the whole Disneybound thing much simpler, and you won't be taking a suitcase full of clothes you aren't going to wear.
2. Wear comfortable shoes. Shoes can be cute AND comfy. I love my Sanuk Yoga Slings
I bought on Amazon. They come in a variety of colors, and can go with just about any look you're going for.
3. Dress based on what you are doing that day. Walking around browsing stores? Go ahead and wear that dress! Chasing littles around A Bug's Land? Might want to opt for shorts too ;) Also, I try to dress myself and the kids based on which park we are at, and which characters we might see that day. Makes for cute pictures.
