If you’re looking for fun & unique shirts for the Disney lover in your life, Etsy is a great place to start. I stumbled upon Magical Day Designs while looking for Mickey t-shirts for our Disney vacation. This New York based shop was started by brothers, Kevin & Grant, in 2016. There are currently 48 designs at Magical Day Designs, with new ones getting added every week. The designs range from movies & princesses to park specific attractions (think food & rides. Hello, Dole Whip). Magical Day Designs also welcomes custom orders, so if you don’t see your favorite movie represented, shoot the guys a message. They have great customer service and are quick to respond to inquiries. All of the designs can be printed on youth or adult unisex tees, with some designs available on a variety of t-shirt colors. Options, I like options. Here’s what the guys have to say about their shop.
How did you get started in the Disney t-shirt business?
We are two brothers whose love of Disney World has grown by leaps and bounds over the past couple years. We wanted to find new ways to express our love for our favorite characters, movies and attractions. It started with making shirts for our own trips and grew from there. When the orders started to come in the next logical member was Nathaniel who is friends with Kevin and Grant and has been around since before the start of the company.
What is your favorite Disney movie?
Kevin is a big fan of the Pixar movies with Up and Wreck It Ralph being the top two. Grant’s favorite is Nightmare Before Christmas and prefers the villains. Nathaniel grew up watching The Lion King and Aladdin as well as classics like The Jungle Book.
What is your favorite design and/or bestseller?
Our Home shirt has become very popular, along with the stunner shades. Kevin’s favorite design is Space Mountain, Grant’s is Villains Clique and Nathaniel’s is Oozma Kappa and the Old School Disney Movies Castle.
Any advice for someone wanting to start their own Etsy shop?
Do it. Jump in. It will take you for a wild ride but it is a great way to be creative, have fun and share your passions with others. It’s pretty amazing to walk in the park and see others wearing something we created!
Magical Day Designs sent the popular Mickey & Minnie Stunner Shades tees for my husband & I to wear on our upcoming Disney World vacation. It’s our first trip to Disney, and the parents are more excited than the kids. I’m even considering wearing mouse ears to the park, but I’m afraid I’ll mortify my oldest. Anyway, back to the tees. I love the classic Mickey & Minnie silhouettes with the added flair of the stunner shades. These two characters never looked so cool. The designs are printed on Gildan 100% cotton unisex tees. These tees fit true to size, and are soft, but still have a structured feel. You can get this fun design printed in either black or white, depending on what color shirt you choose. It’s a bold, yet simple design that’s sure to stand out in the crowd. Be sure to follow me on Instagram for more photos of our wild family vacay (coming soon!).
