When I went in 2006 my step son was 8, We did a tie dye t-shirt with mickey mouse outline on the front. We used a special wax pen that is for tie dyeing shirts. We also did alot of iron-ons for his t-shirts. I ordered a Disney shirt for each family member to wear, they were matching designs but the shirts were all different colors, and then when they rode Tower of Terror they all got shirts from that and wore them together. It was fun, I don't have any pictures on this computer to post. It was also fun the week before the trip to make all the shirts and items, and we only watched Disney movies and did Disney things. It was awesome. I can't wait to go back someday.

On the same site that littlefoots mentions, there is a creative Disign forum.  They have a ton of talented artists that have lots of designs that you can use for iron-on designs.  They will even personalize them for you.  I haven't made mine yet, but I have picked out a bunch of designs that I am going to use.

sadly, I plan our trip around our outfits ;)

Completly addicted, with 4 kids, I won't even tell you the cost, just put it this way.....my husband just closes his eyes, and realizes at this point, its just part of my obsession.

So worth it though, the pictures are adorable, and the kids get a lot of attention (not saying they wouldn't in regular clothes, because lets face it kids just get attention from lots of people, for lots of reasons at disney).

My favorite memory of disney, having dinner at 1900 park fare, my oldest two were dressed as the evil step sisters, my 3 daughter was cinderella, and my 15 month old son was the prince.

Lets put it this way, I actually left that restaurant felling bad for everyone else there because the characters made such a scene about my kids.  When anastasia spoted my little anastasia from across the room, she came screeching at us full speed, grabbed my kids, gave them the biggest hugs and drug them around the entire restaruant showing off her twin (with drizella, and my little drizella).  My kids got a private singing lesson with the characters, (they sang sing sweet nightingale).  They asked my kids to dance with them, middle of the restaurant.  And, the characters arranged for a private photo opportunity with my kids, the picture is priceless, with cinderella, the prince, the step sisters, step mother, and my 4 kids dressed up.  They even slipped me an email address to email them the pictures, and I still keep in contact with the character wrangler that helped us that day. 
Plus, the next night we were at the xmas party, and the prince recognized my kids (they had different clothes on) from the xmas parade, and stopped to give hugs and high fives (although at that point he was gepetto)

We left that dinner, and my husband said...okay, okay, okay, I still don't want to know the money you spent, but that was amazing, and so well worth it!

I love this!! I might try the tie dye idea!  My oldest son is 9 and isn't crazy about matching the baby boys ages  2 months, 1 year and 2 years. I think this is a great idea!! Now if only I can find a "wax pen"

That sounds amazing!  My girls outfits so far are pretty cute but probably nothing near as cool as you had :-)  I would love to see pictures!

I only got things at the Disney store are the outlet and only one time did have I have all of us wear the same top..lol But I would make sure the outfits went with the park we would go to that day..lol One time I got a Bambi top for me that was white with Bambi and mom in pick and my DD had just Bambi in pink then we had on cargo pants. Then when we went to Chef Mickey I had a red Mickey top with white shorts and she had Mickey top. But other then that not to much. But my DD did not like to dress up b/c it was so HOT! I did it one time and we ended up going back to the hotel so she could get out of it!

no, for a few reasons (sorry in advance).

Don't have pictures on this computer, and I don't post pictures of my kids on the internet.

Sorry!
