Thank you to Disney Cruise Line for inviting us to have an incredible experience aboard the Disney Dream! We made these fun Disney Cruise shirts for the occasion. As always, the opinions and text in this post are all mine.
Going on a Disney cruise soon and want to know what to wear?! Here are three adorable DIY Disney cruise shirts that you can make in just a few minutes!
You guys. Jessica and I are getting ready to leave on a Disney Cruise and I’m OVERLY excited. Like, I’m making t-shirts for every day… If you’ve ever been on a Disney cruise, you know It’s MAGICAL. If not, I highly recommend it!
Jess and I have always talked about going on a girls trip. We said we’d do it when our blog turned 3 years old, then 4, then 5. You get the idea. It’s been 6.5 years now, and we’re finally doing it! We’ll be sailing on the Disney Dream for 4 nights and yes, we’ll be sharing EVERYTHING on instagram. Today I wanted to share the DIY shirts I made for the cruise, and the free files so that you can make some too!
*The files I’m sharing are free for personal use only!
Making your own Disney shirts is SO easy if you have a Cricut machine. Check out this post on How to make a Custom Shirt with Cricut to see our full in-depth tutorial. You can use that tutorial to create any of the three shirts I’m sharing below. I went with blue and white t-shirts so they all have a nautical feel.
List Disney Cruise Shirt
List style t-shirts are my FAVE right now. I made a Disney Snacks list shirt when I went to Disney World last February and it got a lot of attention, so I knew I had to make a Disney Cruise version this time around! I love how it turned out. Some of my favorite parts of a Disney cruise are listed on the shirt. Unfortunately, there isn’t room to list EVERYTHING on the shirt. Vanellope’s Sweets and Treats is an honorable mention. If you were making one of these shirts for kids, I would totally incorporate ‘Oceaneer club’ and ‘Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique’ into the list!
In case you are wondering, here is my tentative list of the best things about a Disney Cruise:
- The AMAZING Service
- Ice Cream
- Mickey Waffles
- All the Food (I can’t list everything. It’s all delicious.)
- Movies at the Buena Vista Theater
- Castaway Cay
- The AquaDuck
- Pool Time
- Dole Whip at Frozone Treats
- Pub Trivia
- Hidden Mickeys
- The Rainforest at Senses Spa
- Beauty and the Beast show
- Pirate Night + Fireworks
- All the other things. Haha.
When making your DIY t-shirt, feel free to make your own list, or use mine, which I’ve linked below! The font I used is called Helvetica.

Disney Cruise Family Shirts
The list style Disney cruise shirt went over so well the first time I wore one, that for our most recent cruise I made family Disney cruise shirts. Matching t-shirts with the same list on it, but on different colors of shirts! It was fun to match without being too matchy-matchy, ya know? The simple design also was nice because it is relatively simple to weed and iron-on to the shirts.
I think family Disney Shirts like these would be great for Disney World or Disneyland too, using the Disney Snacks list T-Shirt design. Also, These Family Star Wars Shirts are perfect if you’re going to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge soon!
Modern Disney Cruise Circle Shirt
Sometimes I like a subtle shirt design. I feel like this modern look is perfect for a mix of people and would make a great family cruise shirt because it’s not too ‘out there.’ Especially for a big group, like a family reunion. Men, Women and kids will like it!
To make this shirt download the SVG file: the Disney Cruise circle design.
‘Oh Hey Vacay’ Disney Shirt
This ‘Oh Hey Vacay’ shirt idea came from Jessica and I love it because it can work for the cruise, or any Disney trip! Wear it to Disneyland, Walt Disney World, on a Disney Cruise or an Adventures by Disney trip (I’m dying to do one of those!)

What blue shirt did you use for the list shirt? I love that color!
Thank you! It was from Target last summer – A New Day brand.
Just wondering how you were able to use the ears. Did you have to get a license from Disney? Thanks
Hey! No, they don’t have a problem with people making their own Disney shirts, I think you only need a license if you’re selling.
Hi, any way you could provide me the modern image (circle with X) as a png or jpg? the svg format is giving me an image without the icons, just black boxes. Thanks for the help.
Unfortunately I can’t, but I believe found it on vecteezy originally. Best of luck!
Can I get a copy of the oh hey vacay mickey shirt in the svg format. When I try to open in design space it says the project is private.
Hey Ana! Yes, I’m sorry – I didn’t realize that it wouldn’t let me make it public when I first shared this post. I just updated the link for the design in SVG format. :)
THANK YOU SO MUCH! GOING ON THE MAGIC NEXT WEEK!
