Disney's Design-a-Tee at Disney Springs to close

Mar 20, 2018 in "Disney's Design a Tee"

Posted: Tuesday March 20, 2018 11:47am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Disney's Design-a-Tee in the Marketplace at Disney Springs is set to close later this month.

The custom t-shirt store that opened in late 2008, presented by Hanes, allows guests to create custom shirts from over 400 images and apply their own text.

Hanes became a sponsor at Walt Disney World back in 2007, and we understand that the sponsorship agreement has now come to end, resulting in the closure of the store. The apparel company also sponsors Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

No word yet on what will replace Design-a-Tee.

I would be more sorry to see it go if they hadnt been using Hanes crap.

Its “somewhere”...don’t know if that means where “it’s at”

My family and I used to peruse the selections of designs at the touchscreens and they never seemed to have anything that interested us. It is kinda a shame that this location is closing, but I'm hopeful that something cool will take its place.

Interesting, Disneyland Paris just opened a service where you can design shirts and jackets with patches and stuff.

If a robot isn't airbrushing my t-shirt, I won't want it. You can customize a few t-shirts online at the ShopDisney, but fan made t-shirts are where it's at for under $30 with shipping.

I love this shop and sad to hear it's leaving. I will have to stop by.

What a shame... Honestly, a lot of the in park merch is not what everyone is looking for, this allowed for getting official WDW gear exactly like you liked it.

Yes it was postponed. Still on the cards to close, but no timetable yet.

They decided to keep Hanes but ditch Aerosmith. The RnRC will be rethemed to a mad rush to create a new black T-shirt with a rock band emblem on it in time for tonight's concert after your current one was no longer acceptable to wear because of harrassment charges filed against that band. So au current.

did they change their mind about this closing? it's a month later and it's still open.....hours are posted for it still for rest of April and May.

I'm trying to remember but isn't this near where Little Miss Matched was? Are they slowly starting a revamp of this area (along with World of Disney).

Boo! Must not make a high enough profit margin to survive in today's WDW... :grumpy:

Why would I want to eat an over priced meal at DS when I could have a better meal at home? You do it for the experience and remebering your trip to WDW as many have mentioned in this thread.
