Vintage Spotlight: 25 Classic Disney Lunch Boxes

The back-to-school season is upon us. Time to get back into the routine of early bedtimes, homework, and the ever so awesome task of making lunches for the kiddos. If you make your kids lunch every single day, I tip my hat to you. If I had to make lunch for my kids every day they went to school, they would SO be tired of ham and cheese sandwiches.

If you took lunch to school and had a nifty Disney lunch box to show off, I want to personally invite you to take a look back at 25 classic Disney lunch boxes. You just might recognize one!
