We are alllll about making our lives simpler. The older and busier we get, the more we rely on things that make our lives EASIER. This hack was passed on by a good friend of ours and we've been big fans ever since! Hoping this tip helps YOU too!

We each have two older sons and a youngest daughter. While our older four were younger, we perfected Disneyland/California Adventure with boys but the parks with our girls was a whole new, fun thing and it's been an adventure to explore all of the incredible things that Disney has to offer for girls. The most obvious girl thing in the parks are all of THE PRINCESS DRESSES.

As you walk through the parks, you see adorable little girls dressed up as their most beloved characters and it is just the sweetest. What we quickly discovered (around noon) is that those gorgeous, polyester and tulle princess dresses become perfectly puffy prisons that make our little ladies HOT, ITCHY and oh so IRRITABLE. This can seriously ruin a day and in our opinion, it's just not worth it.

But never fear! We have a fix for you and links to make your shopping even simpler! Let your daughters wear their pajama princess dresses for the day! They dry fast, are super breathable, and your cutie will still be referred to as "princess" by every cast member in the park. (Did you know that they do that if your daughter is dressed as a princess? THEY DO and it's AMAZING!)

Here are some links on princess nightgowns... cause we all need things to be a little easier. (Prices may vary once you adjust sizes.) Pajamas are one of our favorite items to give our girls for Christmas!
