    Hi again, We are traveling to WDW in September! My kids (5) and (4) want a tshirt that have several Disney characters all on the same shirt (they have them on the disney store website).Should we wait to shop at Disney Springs for the best selections?

    Hi, Rachel!

    Thanks for coming back to Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your family must be so excited for your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World! I'm excited FOR you!

    Regarding your purchase of a character shirt, picking up the exact shirts that your children want prior to departure is a great idea. This will ensure that you have what you want before your arrival, and may save you time while touring the parks and Disney Springs.

    On the other hand, if you know that you are going to visit Disney Springs during your visit, you could make the purchase of their T-shirts a highlight of the day. My kids always loved picking out their own souvenirs on our WDW trips, so letting your little ones purchase their shirts IN the most magical place on Earth may make them that much more meaningful.

    Should you decide to purchase these shirts once you are in WDW, download the free, fantastic Shop Disney Parks app. The app can help you locate where you can purchase specific items easily. You can purchase in the app and have it delivered to select Walt Disney World Resort hotels or a pick-up location at one of the four theme parks, too. You even have the option of shipping your goodies directly home.

    I used the app to see if a particular kids' character shirt is available in youth small, and found that it can be purchased in almost 20 different locations, including theme parks, some resort hotels and, of course, Disney Springs. It's so easy, it's like having a personal Walt Disney World shopping assistant right in the palm of your hand!

    Send more questions as you plan your stay, Rachel; we love to help!
