Today I’m excited to announce that we have another set of Disney inspired SVG files for you. You guys seem to LOVE our DIY Disney tees and I love designing them, so win-win right?
I always say that you enjoy a vacation 3 times. Once planning it, once while you’re on it, and once remembering it when you’re home. For me, the planning part of a vacation is one of my favorite things. I love to dream up projects to take with us on our trips. Fun t-shirts to wear while we are there, bags to take and special journals to record our memories.
Right now we have an annual pass to Disney World and before our last trip there I decided to create another set of Disney inspired tees for my kids (and myself) to wear while we were there. Some of you think I’m crazy, but that’s ok. Like I said before, this is part of the FUN for me of vacations. You might as well enjoy as much of your trip as possible right?
We were lucky enough this trip to have all 3 of our kids with us. With all 3 kids over the age of 18 now, I know that is not something that will happen very often from here on out. So I tried to do my best to be present and soak in the time we had together.
How to make Disney T-Shirts:
The Disney t-shirts in today’s post were created with my Cricut machine.
If you’re not familiar with a Cricut machine, it’s pretty much a printer with a blade instead of ink. You hook it up to your computer then you cut out images to use for crafts and home decor projects. It’s an amazing machine (you can read my full review HERE).
To make t-shirts using a Cricut you need a few things:
1- Image Files – these are files in Cricut Design Space or files that you can upload to Design Space yourself. If you upload them yourself, SVG files work the best.
3- Iron on Vinyl – this is a special kind of vinyl that bonds to the fabric when heated. You can use it on t-shirts, pillows, fabric, and even wood.
5- Heat Source- you can use your home iron, however, I’ve found that I have much better results using my Cricut EasyPress. It’s a heat source that is designed specifically for iron on vinyl. It distributes even heat at precise temperatures.
To make your own Disney Tees:
Download the SVG files on the Free Cricut Downloads page on this site.
Cricut Design Space Download: To get these files into Cricut Design space you need to visit the Cricut Downloads Page of the site and follow the directions. When prompted click the DOWNLOAD button and save the file as an SVG to your computer. Do not open it in a new window it will load as an image, not an SVG. Next, go to the Cricut Design Space page with your browser. Click NEW. When the screen pops up click IMAGE. Then click – upload. Upload the image you downloaded. It’s ready to use in Design Space!
Upload the file into Cricut Design Space. Click “attach” in Design Space to get the image to cut out together.
Size the image, and send to the machine to cut the file. Follow the prompts on the screen to do this.
Load the Iron on Vinyl onto the cutting mat, load the mat into the machine. Cut out the image, and weed (or remove) the extra iron on vinyl
Apply to the t-shirt with a Cricut EasyPress

The Free SVG Files:
For this round of Disney tees, I designed 3 different SVG files.
I think my favorite of the bunch is this “I’m only here for the snacks” one. Because I took the job of picking out my “sweet treat” of the day at Disney very seriously.
My youngest daughter LOVES to sleep. She takes after her mama :). This Nap Queen one is inspired by our favorite sleeping princess. It’s cut from Gold Foil Iron On.
I always thought that my oldest daughter reminded me of Snow White (in looks, not brains. Snow White is not the brightest Disney princess). My daughter has ivory skin, dark hair, and blue eyes. I created this Fairest of them All Shirt for her to wear. She paired it with a red bandana and blue shorts. A subtle, but a more modern nod to Snow White.
You can grab all of the SVG files on the Cricut Downloads page. They are free for our Cricut Newsletter subscribers. To download them just read the instructions at the top of the screen.
