Design - A - Disney Tee Shirt
If it is a rainy day, a day when we want a rest from the parks or just an evening when we fancy a leisurely stroll we often head for Downtown Disney.
Previously we have visited the “Create Your Own Ear Hat” shop. In here you get to select from a number of basic caps, then you add the ears of your choice. We went to Downtown Disney Marketplace before our evening flight home last year and the girls had great fun designing their caps. I think there is a similar shop on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom.
Next time we go we need to visit the new shop which opened in January 2009 and I am sure we will be making at least a couple of purchases! It is called Disney Design-A-Tee, and I believe it is next door to “Create Your Own Ear Hat”
In the shop are a number of T-shirt shaped kiosks. These have the screens that are touch-sensitive and you have to select from a number of options to create your own one-of-a-kind Disney souvenir T- shirt.
The first choice you make is would you like a long or short sleeve shirt. Then you choose Adult, Children, Toddler or Infant. Apparently you can get short sleeve shirts up to size 5XL.
Next you select your colour, I am not sure how many colours there are but knowing Disney there will be plenty.
Then you go on to choose a design from these categories: Celebrations, Characters, Princesses, Tinker Bell, Pirates, Pixar, Disney Films, and Holidays. Within each category there are even more selections to choose from.
You can have four lines of text, one line being above the graphic and three lines below it. You can select from a number of ready-made messages or design your own. As you design your T shirt you can view your progress as you go along on the computer.
Once you have finished your design, a receipt is printed and you take this to the cashier. Prices are between $18 and $30.
The cashier shows you your completed T- shirt on the computer for you to confirm that is what you want. I imagine customers will then get a shock when they are handed a small T-shirt approximately six inches square!
You then take your tiny T shirt to a machine nearby, insert it and push the start button. It comes back to you mysteriously enlarged, dyed, and printed to your design. Each shirt comes with its own cloth bag in a colour of your choice.
Although it is only supposed to take 20 minutes to design your shirt I think we may need to plan to be at the shop slightly longer when we take the girls!
