What I Actually Wore To Disney World

Apparently, I was SO excited for our recent trip to Disney World that I forgot how to take decent outfit photos. Haha. (I look like I was channeling Goofy in all of them!) I blame all the fun and magic of the happiest place on Earth.

I DID, however, come up with a daytime Disney outfit formula that works beautifully for your trip and I’m happy to be able to share that with y’all, along with a few other pieces that work great for evenings, too. I hemmed and hawed over what to wear for months and months (this trip was rescheduled from 2020), so lots of thought and consideration went into this, my friends.

Mickey Mouse Tees & More Outfit Inspo For Your Disney Vacation

This is what I wore every single day of our late fall vacation to Disney World. It worked so, so well. The whole thing was really comfy for walking (and standing) all day long, comfy for rides, comfy for versatility (the jacket ties easily at the waist) and the entire look was pretty quick drying for water rides or rainy days. These few pieces are so easy to pack, too, so you have more room to bring home the fun stuff.

So this post may contain cool mom outfits, but notice it's not titled 'looking cool at Disney World.' Ha! What I DID do successfully is create an outfit formula that works beautifully for wearing each day of vacation.

Where To Find Vintage Or Vintage-Inspired Mickey Mouse Tees

When I learned we were all going to Disney I started scouring eBay for vintage Mickey Mouse tees and found some fun gems. The nice thing is if vintage shopping is not an enjoyable hobby for you, you can find a bunch of cute options from our go-to retailers, too.

Urban Outfitters has a great selection and of course, shopDisney does too. These tend to sell out fast, so if you find one you like, hop on it. Etsy is another place to find some good ones! Vintage-looking tees with simple graphics are my favorite for not looking too cheesy or childish.

Of Course I Added Jeans To My Travel Outfit Formula

I’m a gal who seriously doesn’t leave home without a pair of jeans. So I brought a couple of favs for travel days and evenings and they came in handy when it was cool and when I just wanted a break from a leggings look. I also typically bring along my favorite AllSaints leather jacket for travel, too, because it just makes everything look cooler. (Watch for them on sale this time of year.) I tend to wear my moto and jeans and heaviest shoes on the plane and have traveled in this combo for years.

The first pair of jeans I brought are old, old Madewell Slim Boyjeans, but I’ve linked to a similar Madewell pair I also have and love (size down.) The second are my beloved AGOLDE 90s jeans I’ve had for a year that are perfectly broken-in and one of my most-worn pairs, even in winter because they go great with my shearling-lined clog boots and a cozy sweater (I cropped them myself to just at the ankle.)

If you’re traveling to Disney World anytime soon, I hope these suggestions help. And if you’re not, maybe you should! It’s so much more incredible than I remembered (and side-note: they were really thorough at enforcing indoor masking everywhere.)

It was a blast to be able to create those family memories and escape to the magic (and eat all the snacks.) Highly recommend!

Would love for you to say hi over on my Instagram @laurajansenstyle where there are mostly odes to snacks, OOTDs and everyday mom life stuff in Portland, Oregon. xoxo

  1. This is so timely. We are going in a few weeks (also rescheduled from 2020) and I have *almost* written to you guys several times to ask what to wear! Thank you!

  2. My Disney uniform, perfected over several pre-pandemic trips:
    – baseball cap, sunnies + sunblock
    – swingy cropped tees for ventilation
    – Patagonia Happy Hike pants (Athleta also has similar styles) or running shorts
    – Adidas running sneakers or Tevas
    – denim jacket
    – packable rain shell
    – ultralight packable down jacket similar to the ones Uniqlo carries.
    – Amanda Uprichard belt bag (available on eBay or her website)
    – 1 jersey dress
    – Swimsuit + coverup + flipflops for pool
    – 1 mask per person per day

    We’ve been to Disney 4 times and only ever bring carry-ons, and this packing list has never failed me.

  3. Yeah the rain gear is key in FL. We go to the one in CA and it’s less likely to rain but when we went to Disneyworld it rained briefly several times.

    • Yes! We just relied on basic ponchos and I totes forgot to include our poncho power couple shot from the one day it rained haha.

  4. We went to Disneyland in CA several times. Have to admit my kids were 4 and 6 when we started going, so I was more concerned with the snack bag (I assume they still let you bring in your own food) and navigating a double stroller. We once went Christmas Day, thinking it wouldn’t be as crowded but they actually closed the park several times because they were at capacity (pre pandemic, obvi!). I think we started our crushed penny collection the first trip, as there is a whole ‘arcade’ of machines on Main Street; if not, we bought the collection books there. That and one significant souvenir at the end are my only suggestions to hold down. the ‘can I have this, please’. Ah, memories…
