Kids theme park fashion can be a tricky clothes question to navigate.
As someone who’s visited Disney Theme parks over 50 times, I thought our current trip to Disneyland offered the perfect opportunity to share some of my favorite kids theme park fashion tips!
That, and the fact that we found this fabulous new line of Disney kids clothes from Jumping Beans at Kolh’s: Magic at Play.
The Magic at Play line features kids’ clothes in sizes 3-7 and incorporates some of their favorite Disney character into comfortable and current fashions.
My daughter especially loved the Minnie themed sequin shirt and A-line short sleeved dress (with an excellent spinning radius 😉
When it comes to kids theme park fashion, there are six C’s you want to keep in mind when dressing your kids, so my best tips when planning your kids’ outfits for your next theme park vacation.
The 6 C’s of Kids Theme Park Fashion
Let’s face it, you’ll be taking as many pictures in a week as you typically would in a three month time span. This isn’t the time to pull out the play clothes that have been sitting crumpled up in the back of the closet.
Just because I mention in the first tip that kids should look cute doesn’t mean they can’t be comfortable. I love cotton tees & skorts for my daughter and breathable, athletic style tees & shorts for my son.
Not only can kids pull of bright colors more easily than adults, but dressing your kids in bright colors will keep them cool in the theme park sun while helping you easily spot them in those theme park crowds (safety first!).
No parent is more against the ‘matchy-matchy’ trend than my husband, but even he agrees that coordinating our kids helps us keep track of them and makes those pictures look extra cute. Having set outfits for each child before you leave for your vacation will also help cut down on dressing time in the hotel each morning and get you out to the parks faster so you can maximize your fun.
If ever there was a time to wear a character tee, theme park vacations are it! I think that’s why we love the selections from the Magic at Play from Kohls: not only do they have classic Mickey & Minnie tees, but they take character dressing to a whole new level.
Of course, what is a theme park vacation without a costume or two? Having a boy and a girl, I can say that girls exponentially outweigh the boys in their desire to wear costumes, but that doesn’t mean that our son hasn’t enjoyed dressing as Peter Pan or Jack Sparrow during our trips. Try to find costumes that pack well and aren’t too itchy. And I have to admit, meeting the characters becomes extra special when your child is dresses like them.

And I’ll leave you with one of the best kids’ theme park tips that has to do with fashion, but from a safety perspective… Make sure to take a picture of your kids each morning BEFORE you head into the theme park. That way, God-forbid, they get lost, you have a current photo of your child in the outfit they were wearing that day.
