P&J’s Southern Takeout Review

img_0044

So on our girls trip back in November, the first restaurant we tried was Trail’s End/P&J’s Southern Takeout.  As we’ve mentioned before, we found Fort Wilderness a bit lacking in available food options.  It was about 1 or 2 in the afternoon by the time we stumbled upon Trail’s End, and at that time they were at the tail end of their brunch buffet.  None of us were in the mood for brunch, however, we found out that P&J’s inside Trail’s End does a few takeout lunch options.

Now, the keyword here is “takeout”.  I don’t believe you are meant to eat your food at the restaurant there.  There are a few picnic tables outside, however, when we were there all the tables under cover were occupied, and it had started raining.  Since the brunch buffet was over, there was no one eating inside Trail’s End, so we asked one of the cast members there if we could sit inside and eat.  They very nicely allowed us to do so.

The menu at P&J’s is quite limited.  You can choose from a large cheese or pepperoni pizza, a BBQ pork sandwich, a turkey wrap, a salami/ham/turkey sandwich on focaccia bread, a caesar salad with chicken, and fried chicken.

Shannon:  Tara and I had the pepperoni pizza.  It was made to order and served hot.  While it’s not Via Napoli, it was actually pretty good, I thought.  I’d eat it again.

Tara: The pizza was good. It was not the room service cardboard type pizza (thankfully!) and it was a decent pizza. I would definitely order it again and enjoyed it.

Jillian: I chose the Chuckwagon Wrap, which was smoked turkey, provolone cheese, lettuce, and basil aioli on a sundried tomato wrap for my first Disney meal.  It was filling without being so heavy.  The portion size was great and the chips were so delicious!  I love a homemade chip and these were perfectly cooked and salted.  Plus it came in a cute to go box!  I would definitely order this again!

Jamie: I had the “Lone Rider” which was 2 pieces of fried chicken with cornbread, plus a choice of 2 sides: macaroni and cheese, coleslaw and mashed potatoes. I chose the first two. The chicken was very good! Pretty typical fried chicken, but it hit the spot since I was so hungry. Neither the mac and cheese or coleslaw were very good in my opinion.

Overall, I feel like the food we had was fine, but Fort Wilderness is maybe not the best place to be if you’re looking for a lot of quick food options.

 

Cafe Orleans Review

img_20160822_173052-copy

During my visit to Disneyland in August 2016, I made a dinner reservation for myself and my roommate.  It was a toss up for me where I was going to choose since I’d heard great things about Cafe Orleans, but also as well as Blue Bayou.  I’d heard that Cafe Orleans had the better food but Blue Bayou had the better atmosphere, overlooking the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction and all. In the end, I went with Cafe Orleans because I’m all about the food.

First of all, being that I’m from Louisiana and a frequent visitor to New Orleans, I wasn’t expecting a whole lot of authenticity for the decor.  I will say that it’s very nice and homey feeling to me, which is good.  It doesn’t look unlike a cafe in New Orleans so I guess that’s saying something.

Appetizer course:

img_20160822_173627-copyTo start, my roommate and I shared an order of Pommes Frites served with a remoulade dipping sauce.  These start out as your basic Disney Parks french fries, but then they’re coated with parmesan and garlic and let me just say, all fries really should be coated with garlic and cheese.  We couldn’t stop eating them!

img_20160822_174429-copy

Next, we thought we should probably have something green so we shared La Salade de Maison, or the house salad.  It had a raspberry vinaigrette with goat cheese and caramelized pecans.  It was delicious but I’m a huge fan of fruit dressings and candied nuts on my salad.

Entree:

img_20160822_174907-copy

For our entree, we shared a famous Monte Cristo sandwich.  This is a ham, turkey, and swiss sandwich that’s battered and fried then topped with powdered sugar and served with berry puree.  There’s also some fruit on the side in case you care about being healthy, but let’s face it, you’re eating a fried sandwich.  You’re not being healthy.

This sandwich is obviously delicious, but it’s a very large portion.  Granted, we had fries and a salad, but my roommate and I couldn’t finish this one sandwich.  So we got dessert, of course.

Dessert:

img_20160822_181415-copy

That is a Mickey shaped beignet with a dollop of vanilla frosting on the side.  If you don’t know what a beignet is, it’s basically a French doughnut.  Fried dough.  Because everything we eat should be fried.  In my defense, I did not order this.  Our waitperson brought this out to me (free of charge) because I was wearing my birthday button.  But me, being the kind person that I am, didn’t want to hurt her feelings so I ate it.  I’m quite familiar with beignets due to where I live, and this one did not disappoint.  It was hot, flaky, and covered in powdered sugar, just like a beignet ought to be.

Overall, I was quite pleased with my experience at Cafe Orleans.  The food was great and the atmosphere fun and laid back, just like New Orleans itself.

Chef Art Smith’s Homecoming Lunch Review

This new restaurant located at Disney Springs in The Landing area is a clear winner.  It is open, spacious, bright, and really has the feeling of comfort.  It felt so homey and cozy, but also fresh and new.  The décor is beautiful and it is so cool to look into the open kitchen.  The chairs were very comfortable and felt plush while looking casual at the same time.  You could easily dress up for a night out on the town with drinks or wear your shorts and sneakers while taking a break from the parks.


We had a party of 4 for lunch and we all thought the Church Lady Deviled Eggs sounded good. It is 6 full sized eggs so it is easy to share with a larger group.  You may be thinking, really deviled eggs?  But I assure you these were so, so delicious!  The flavoring was just right and the eggs tasted so fresh!  These were a winner all around at our table!

My choice for entrée was the Fried Chicken Sandwich.  This is a buttermilk-brined for 24 hours and double battered chicken topped with hot sauce, aioli, lettuce, and bread and butter pickles.  This was really good!  I think the toasted bun just brought it all together so well.  It was fresh and filling without weighing you down for a busy day.  For a small upcharge I changed the homemade chips for the Iron Skillet Sweet Potatoes with Caramelized Cane Sugar, and I must say it was a great choice!  These sweet potatoes were just awesome!  They are swimming in butter and sugar so don’t think they are a healthy option but get them anyway you will enjoy them!

JAMIE: One of my favorite meals of the entire trip. A+++! I had the same chicken sandwich as Jillian and it was something really special. The long process that goes into making this chicken really does show in every bite. I had the french fries with it and everything came out piping hot and perfectly prepared. I’ll definitely be returning, ASAP.

TARA: LOVED IT! I really enjoyed this lunch and I was excited to try it. I had heard mostly great reviews but was a tad concerned. I had read a few from Southerners that they may fall short on a few items being truly Southern cooking. I definitely did not find this to be the truth – but in fairness I avoided the item that seems to get the bad reviews (green beans). Instead, I had the Chicken Salad and it came with a house dressing that was a mix of ranch and vinaigrette. The dressing was wonderful and very tangy. The salad was fresh and a favorite salad that I get often so I was curious how it stacked up and it came out on top. And just to add to the glowing review of the deviled eggs – they are a must now every time I visit. I am not a huge deviled egg fan but these were definitely special!

CHRIS:For lunch I had the HFK Barbecue Bun sandwich. This was their chopped pork with sweet and spicy barbecue sauce, topped with southern slaw and served on a brioche bun. The pork was perfect, seasoned and cooked just right and served with their sweet and spicy barbecue sauce (which in hind site I wish I asked for an additional side of barbecue it was that good!). In lieu of chips I ordered an additional side of their southern slaw, which lived up to its southern name! Portions were a perfect size for lunch!

The service was great, our waitress was quick to refill our glasses before they were empty, but never hovering around.  She was helpful and able to answer all our questions about the menu as well as suggest food choices for us.

This is definitely a great family restaurant or for a night out.  The kids menu is small but you could always go with a couple of the sides for kids also.  I cannot recommend this restaurant enough and you HAVE to get the deviled eggs!

The Ganachery at Disney Springs

img_4573

Ever since I heard of it’s opening in late 2015 I have been dying to get to Disney Springs’ The Ganachery. This is more than just a chocolate shop, it’s a decadent chocolate experience. The Ganachery is a small shop, but packed full of awesome. As soon as you enter you are able to see the chocolatiers creating magic in the kitchen through a giant show window, working on each of the 16 flavors offered here.

img_4575

Experienced employees wait behind the counter to help you narrow down your choices in chocolate. I decided to go with a box of 6 of the ganache collection, for a cost of $15. There are also boxes of nine for $21, boxes of twelve for $27, boxes of sixteen for $36 or individual pieces of ganache for $3 each. When I was there a few of the chocolate choices were: Chipotle Pepper, Pumpkin Spice Latte, Cinnamon Apple, Egyptian Sea Salt, Caramel, Passion Fruit, Raspberry, Gianduja (hazlenut), Milk  Chocolate, Coconut, Vanilla, Peanut Butter and 65% Dark.

Each bite of chocolate was more amazing than the last, but I think my favorite was the Egyptian sea salt! I can’t wait to go back to the Ganachery and try more flavors.

Have you been to The Ganachery? What did you try and what did you think? We’d love to hear!

Sanaa Dinner Review

On our November Dole Whipped trip, we had one of our dinners at Sanaa.  Three quarters of us hadn’t tried it before so we wanted to give it a shot. Sanaa is an Indian and African style restaurant located at Animal Kingdom Lodge in the Kidani Village section.  It’s a beautiful restaurant and has some nice views of the Sunset Savanna.

img_0408Bread Service – First things first, if you don’t get the bread service, you are really missing out!  Unless you have some kind of dietary restriction that doesn’t allow you to eat bread, you NEED this appetizer course.  There are two versions of this, each comes with five different times of naan and you can either get your choice of three dipping sauces or the full nine sauce variety.  We chose the full nine.  Your five naan flavors are: Traditional Naan, Garlic-Ginger Naan, Spiced Naan, Onion Kucha, and Paneer Paratha. The nine dipping sauces are: Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, Mango Chutney, Tomato-Date Jam, Tamarind Chutney, Coriander Chutney, Garlic Pickle, Red Chile Sambal, or Spicy Jalapeño-Lime Pickle.  At $15 for the nine sauce service, it really is a great deal.  We all loved it!

img_0411Shannon: For my entree, I got the Potjie Inspired platter with Cilantro-coconut milk seasoned vegetables, and Braised Beef.  Each platter comes with Basmati rice.  This was excellent!  The beef was so tender and flavorful.  The vegetables in the coconut milk were delicious.  I had never really tried Indian food before so I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect and I have to say, Sanaa will be a must do for me on future Disney vacations.

img_0409Jamie: Sanaa is amazing!! The bread service was one of the best things I’ve eaten at Disney ever, really. And such a great value too! I tried every single one of the sauces. Like Shannon said, you can choose a smaller platter for the bread service with fewer sauces but I’d really consider going all out for this one. I don’t think there was a single sauce I didn’t enjoy. For dinner I had the butter chicken, the same cilantro coconut veggies as Shannon and rice. The butter chicken was truly phenomenal. I know it’s not very adventurous in terms of Indian food but it was really just so yummy.

img_0412Jillian: I ordered the Traditional Sosatie.  This was a lamb skewer with apricots, cashew and goat cheese.  I really really loved this.  This meat was tender and the flavors were a great compliment to each other.  I did not leave here hungry either!  The bread service was also amazing!  You will not want to miss out on ordering that with your meal. I’m so glad we decided to go here because usually I’m all about trying new places, however this is just too good to not go to!

img_0410Tara: Sanaa is one of my overall favorite places to eat at Disney. It used to be my hidden gem but definitely it is getting more well known. I love everything there from the location, to service to food. The bread service is my favorite thing and I could definitely make a meal out of just that. Though why when I want the braised beef and paneer tikka just as much! Paneer tikka is like a tomato soup with cheese and is so comforting and warm. The braised beef is so good if I could only eat one thing the rest of my life it might be Sanaa’s braised beef (I say might only because I haven’t tried everything on their menu yet). I give them an A+++.

Morimoto Dinner Review

For our November Dole Whippies girl trip kickoff we started with dinner at one of the newer Disney Springs restaurants. We’d heard a little of the buzz of Morimoto (including from Tara, who’d been lucky enough to try it this past summer!) but were excited to try it ourselves. Morimoto is Japanese master chef Masaharu Morimoto’s first pan-Asian (Japanese, Chinese and Korean) cuisine restaurant featuring open kitchens and 20 foot chandeliers in the 2 story dining room. From the menu you can choose from sushi, dim sum, different meats, noodles/rice, and vegetables. For dinner we each got something of our own, and a few things to share. Here’s our take on the food from Morimoto!

img_4566

Jamie: I ordered the Kanikama Rangoon- krab meat and cream cheese spring roll, apricot sweet chili sauce. These were like crab rangoon but in a spring roll. They were really good, but the sauce was even better! I could have eaten that sauce on everything. I also shared the Pad Thai (sweet tamarind sauce, stir-fried flat rice noodles, egg, bean sprout, scallion, fried tofu, pickled turnip) with Shannon and it was pretty good. The tofu in it was much better than I expected it to be! Overall I thought the meal was great, and a very good way to kick off our trip!

img_4569

Jillian: I started with the chicken dumplings, something I will usually order at Chinese restaurants and there were great!  Better than your average, but not out of this world.  I also had the spicy tuna sushi roll.  This was really good!  My only wish it that I had ordered two!  These are easy to share or have as an appetizer!  I really enjoyed this meal!  It is a great addition to Disney Springs.

img_4572img_4570

Shannon: I ordered the vegetable Pad Thai.  It was delicious!  Not the best Pad Thai, I’ve had, but very very good.  I am not a fan of tofu in general, but as Jamie said, the tofu in this dish was very enjoyable.

I had wanted an order of egg rolls for an appetizer, but sadly, they were all out for the day.  Our server said they make the egg rolls fresh in house and they only make a certain amount per day.

Overall, I thought this restaurant was pretty good.  Maybe a bit on the expensive side and not necessarily somewhere I would take my passel of kids, but a good date night place.

Tara: Morimoto is a good option for Disney Springs. This was my second visit there in the past few months and both times found it good. I will say this trip the food was yummy and I enjoyed the food more this visit but the service could have been better. I think this was a one server issue though and not a restaurant issue. I was disappointed they were out of all egg rolls (I mean this is an Asian restaurant in the US – I would think egg rolls would be a staple!) I did have yummy sesame balls though and lived them. I give it overall a solid B.

Columbia Harbor House Lunch Review

One of the must try restaurants for me this trip was Columbia Harbor House!  I am a huge fan of seafood and this is the go to place in the Magic Kingdom for that.  This quick service location is in Liberty Square, just look for the cast member ringing a bell.

I mentioned seafood but that is not the only thing on the menu, there are salads, chicken pot pie, macaroni and cheese, and soups.

dscn3881For lunch I was torn between two options, luckily Jamie felt the same way and we agreed to split the two.  The first one was the Lobster Roll with potato chips this was a hearty serving with lots of lobster and not a lot of filler.  The roll it came on was so soft and delicious as well.  I give this one thumbs up!  The other choice was the Anchors Aweigh Sandwich with chips.  This was a tuna sandwich with lettuce and tomato on a toasted multigrain bread.  This was even better than the lobster roll.  I really really loved this.  The tuna was very plentiful and the bread made the sandwich even better.  I give this one 2 thumbs up and I would get it again! 

Jamie: I was so happy Jillian wanted to split our options for lunch, too! I couldn’t decide and really wanted both, but obviously didn’t want to eat both. I’d previously had the lobster roll so I knew it was good, but I really enjoyed the tuna sandwich, maybe even more so than the lobster. Plus the house chips are really delicious! Both of these options are miles above the “typical” counter service restaurants most people think of. While I enjoy a good burger and fries at Disney, having options like these at Columbia Harbor House really make even quick dining at Disney really enjoyable.


Tara: I had the chicken pot pie with steamed broccoli and since I thought that was super healthy I splurged and had the blackberry cobbler for dessert. The chicken pot pie and broccoli were really good and filling. I could not even finish the pot pie because I needed to save room for the cobbler which was a huge hit. The cobbler was topped with a vanilla cream that was perfect and made it worth the broccoli side at lunch. I definitely recommend visiting Columbia Harbor House!

Shannon: I had the chicken and fish plate.  The fish was very good and cooked perfectly.  The outside is crispy and light and the fish inside was very tender.  The chicken nuggets are the same chicken nuggets you find in other areas of the parks and they are very good for what they are.  The fries are basically the same as what you’d find anywhere else in the parks and that’s fine with me because I love them.  I was not very crazy about the cole slaw that was included, but it wasn’t bad.  I’m just picky about my slaw.  Overall, I really enjoyed this meal.

This is a popular place so go early or a little later in order to avoid a long wait time or lack of seating.  The food is very fresh and filling and you can find something for even the pickiest eaters.  Put Columbia Harbor House on your short list of quick service locations to try!

Best Use of Dining Plan Quick Service Credits

When you get the Dining plan or Quick Service dining plan you want to make sure you are getting a good value for your money.  But cost can’t be the only factor.  You will want to make sure you are checking out the menus to verify that you are choosing a restaurant menu that will appeal to your party.  This isn’t a comprehensive list but some suggestions for great eats!

dscn3593

Be Our Guest for lunch is a fantastic choice based on the location, amazing atmosphere and the food.  The food is similar to the dinner offerings but all at one quick service dining credit. Located in Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland you will be immersed in the Beast’s castle and can choose from three different rooms to sit in.  This restaurant is like no other.  First of all it does require reservations for the quick service.  Next you order solely from a kiosk and then get your “rose” and find a spot to sit.  Your food will be delivered to your table.  You can check out my lunch review here.

Wolfgang Puck Express located in Disney Springs is another amazing choice for a quick service meal, lunch or dinner. Similar to Be Our Guest, you will have your food delivered to your table.  This food is pretty amazing, we recommend the mac and cheese and the bacon wrapped meatloaf.  Check out this review for more information!

Sunshine Seasons food court with high ceiling and a massive glass roof

Sunshine Season in the Land pavilion in Epcot is a delicious option with seasonal foods grown right there in the Land Pavilion! Plus the amazing strawberry shortcake is always worth getting.  This location is also ideal if you need to fuel up before waiting in line for Soarin’ Around the World.  They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner so any time the mood strikes you can check out this quick service restaurant.  This restaurant has some amazing choices like Oak grilled salmon, slow roasted pork chops and Mongolian beef.

Columbia Harbour House located in Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom is a fantastic option for a healthier lunch or dinner with many options.  Some of the most popular options are the Lobster Roll, chicken pot pie, Lighthouse sandwich, clam chowder, and broccoli peppercorn salad.  You cannot beat the location and people watching if you head up to the second floor seating.

 

Flame Tree Barbecue in the Discovery Island area of Animal Kingdom is probably one of the best quick services values.  You can get more than just barbeque here though, some choices are ½ a chicken, ribs & chicken combo, smoked turkey sandwich, full slab of ribs, and roasted chicken salad.

Dining area of Landscape of Flavors restaurant at Disney's Art of Animation Resort

Landscape of Flavors is located at the Art of Animation resort is an awesome choice with unique and adventurous flavors.  You can get things like curry chicken, beef stirfry, create your own pasta or pizza, burgers, soup, and salad. Yep, that is a lot of choices in one restaurant!

Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café in Frontierland in Magic Kingdom is another fantastic choice.  If you love tex-mex food this is the place for you.  It is similar to Qdoba or Chipotle where you can get a rice bowl, fajitas, or burritos and then step up to the fixins bar to doctor up your dinner.

Capt. Cook’s in the Polynesian Village Resort is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  You can get the famous Tonga Toast for breakfast or the pulled pork nachos for lunch and dinner.  This location is great whether you are staying at the Polynesian or just visiting from the other monorail resorts or want a break for the parks.  The menu has variety and is a pretty good value.

Tangerine Café located in the Morocco pavilion in Epcot is a cool choice for lunch or dinner.  They have many unique offerings such as Mediterranean chicken wrap, shawarma chicken or lamb platter, lamb wrap, and kefta sandwich.  Plenty to choose from for the adventurous palate.

Is It Worth it?

As a travel agent I get this question pretty frequently, and you may be surprised on what topics this question is asked.   These are my opinions on whether something is worth doing at Walt Disney World.  These are going to be my opinion but my opinion is also based on personal experience as well as data gathered from former clients.

 

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique: At least once, especially if you have a kid who is crazy about princesses.  I would highly recommend if you are going to drop the cash you will want a reservation at Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom.  The packages can be pretty pricey so to save, bring your own costume and accessories instead of purchasing the full package.

bibbidi-bobbidi-boutique-00

Pirates League: This is very much worth it!  It is a great value and a fun experience for boys and girls.  In fact unlike Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, adults can also get a makeover here too!  They have pirate and mermaid choices and it is a really good value in comparison.

 

Getting Up Early: YES!  I cannot say yes enough.  The parks are least busy when they first open.  You also get to see some neat stuff like the Welcome Show at the Magic Kingdom.  How can you possibly be the family of the day if you are sleeping all morning?  Some restaurants even offer early breakfast reservations inside the parks which means you have beat the crowds inside the parks.  Go ahead and take that afternoon nap now, you deserve it.

DSCN3503

To Try ______ Attraction: Well this is a no-brainer, yes!  You should absolutely try any attraction, ride or show at least once unless you have a medical condition in which it is advised against.  You may never know when you find your new favorite!

 

Park Hopper Tickets:  In most cases, yes.  This ticket makes your vacation so flexible.  It can be a little work bouncing from park to park but if you are like a lot of people and find Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom to be half day parks this ticket option gives you the chance to save the rest of your day by hopping over to another park.  If you are traveling with really young children it might not be worth the hassle.  But if you are traveling with teens or adults only it is so worth the splurge.  I have travelled with and without the Park Hopper and I will absolutely give up a character meal before I give up with Park Hopper!

tickets

Party Tickets: Yes, especially if you do not have park tickets for that day.  You can enter the Magic Kingdom at 4pm on the party days even when the party doesn’t start until 7pm.  You get special parades and firework shows, extra treats and character meet and greets.  The parks are less crowded as well so you can get on your favorites rides with a minimal wait time!

Refillable Mugs: Yes, but you have to do the math!  So as of 2016 the mugs are $17.  Say you are staying 5 days it would be $3.40 per day, plus you keep the mug.  For me this is very much worth it.  I drink coffee or iced tea in the morning so I would fill up each morning before going to the parks.  Then on an afternoon break I will fill up with Powerade, lemonade or more iced tea.  Then in the evening before bed I’m loading up on more water or Powerade.  Some quick math tells me that I am coming out ahead plus I have a cute souvenir cup to take home!

mugs

Cinderella’s Royal Table:  Not really a good value.  This restaurant located inside Cinderella Castle is a character meal that will run you about $60 a person or 2 Table Service credits.  While you cannot beat the location or atmosphere there are other really great choices for princess character dining (Akershus, 1900 Park Fare) that won’t cost as much and the food is really good.  If you were planning to do this as a special treat or celebration then it may be worth it to do once.

cinderellas

The Dining Plan: Yes, if used correctly!  The dining plan can absolutely save you money if you plan your meals correctly to get the best value.  If you split meals a lot or routinely order something that isn’t an entrée they no, it may not be worth it.  If you like to go on vacation knowing it is all paid for then this is very helpful, no Disney food sticker shock either.  So how do you figure out if it is worth getting?  You will have to do a bit of work checking menu prices and then figuring out if what you would order for each meal plus 2 snacks and if you would use the refillable mug (drinks start at about $3) and then look at the cost per day of the dining plan.

 

Preferred Rooms: Yes, a thousand times yes! Want to save yourself some walking at the beginning and end of the day?  How about saving yourself a long trip to the pool or food court?  Taking kids to Walt Disney World?  Then get a preferred room, it is worth the price difference from a standard, especially at the Value resorts.

 

Club Level: This is a it depends.  If you are already on the dining plan it may not be worth it, but if you are looking for a way to plus up a vacation with a great room that has snacks provided a couple times a day plus free drinks?  Then yeah you will want to look at it.  The big seller is that it includes some beers and wine as well as bottled water.  You could make breakfast out of the offerings.  There are also midday snacks offered and hot appetizers in the evenings and desserts in the late evenings!  This can be a fantastic value!  Check out Tara’s Club Level series here for specific resort information.

 

T-Shirts, Misting Fans, Glowing Trinkets: Nope, save yourself a lot of big bucks and pick up these things prior to going on vacation.  You can find misting fans and the cheap glowing, spinning toys at pretty much any dollar store, Walgreens, Walmart stores for about ¼ of the price.  The same could be said for the shirts you can purchase at Walt Disney World.  Your basic Tshirt will set you back about $25.  Go ahead and check out with Disney Store online, Target, Walmart, Forever 21, Torrid, Hot Topic, H & M, and Etsy just to name a few.
