You can’t get them in the parks but trust me, everyone walking by at Disney will be asking where you got it! I wore these on cool evenings in the parks when we were around 40 degrees and it was just enough to keep me warm with a t-shirt underneath. And I am notoriously cold everywhere I go!

Disney Inspired Pet Portraits Disney Gift

Every Disney princess, super hero and Disney fan needs their pet side-kick! And what better gift than to put that pet into a Disney inspired portrait?

I found out about My Cartoon Pets through an article on BoredPanda (it’s my guilty pleasure before bed). I was absolutely taken by these adorable pet photos turned into Disney style pets.

Theme Parkist Shoes Gift for Disney Fans

When you’re walking 8+ miles per day at a Disney theme park, your feet take a beating. Every Disney fan is always looking for the best kicks for their theme park days and their outfits. Theme Parkist is new on the scene and is aiming to make a huge mark in the theme park fan space.


EPCOT inspired shoes


Not only do they have designs inspired by your favorite theme parks and attractions, their zero-inventory production facilities use eco-certified textiles and inks to deliver made-to-order shoes to your door. This focus on the planet with a theme park twist had me eager to try their shoes. 

I ordered the Spaceship Freestyle Sunrise, which was sent to me to test by Theme Parkist. It was especially a hard opt in for them because I am known for sporting my flip flops in the parks year-round. I am still breaking these babies in for their spin at the parks but love the light-weight and flexible feel. 

I used their at home sizing guide to ensure correct sizing and picked the design that spoke most to me. I love bright colors and how this design echos theme parks without being too over the top.
