Packing for Walt Disney World | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

Packing for your Walt Disney World trip should begin way in advance. I say this because there are several things I suggest packing that may not be on your mind. If you wait until the last minute, you may end up spending more money than needed. Be on the lookout for sales in stores and online. Look for travel size items instead of full size, especially if you are flying, and to keep in your park bag.

Previously, I have shared an extensive packing list our family uses before each Disney trip. This is overkill, I know! But, it may give you an idea of the types of things your family may need on a trip.

I've also posted 15 Things To Pack For Disney. Here is the list, but be sure to follow the link to find out why we pack these items!

  1. Dish Soap. 
  2. Laundry Detergent.
  3. Clorox Wipes.
  4. Nightlight. 
  5. Noise Machine.
  6. Over the door shoe holder.
  7. Power Strip. 
  8. Skirt Hangers. 
  9. Scissors.  
  10. Ponchos. 
  11. Glow sticks. 
  12. Ziplock Bags. 
  13. Sharpie Pens. 
  14. Plastic Stroller Cover. 
  15. Ribbon.

In addition to the packing list for the trip, I have a list of things I carry with me into the parks.  Again, I overpack and over prepare for any situation. Tweak this list to fit your families needs.

  • Diapers and wipes
  • Extra change of clothes & bibs
  • Bottles/ sippy cups with formula/ juice
  • Toys- for comfort (a favorite blankie, stuffed animal)
  • Entertainment for long lines and waits
  • Blanket for cool weather and cooler attractions 
  • Favorite snacks
  • Autograph book/ pen
  • Fat pen for autographs, or a sharpie, but not green!
  • ABC scrapbook
  • Coins for pressed pennies (2 quarters and a penny)
  • Jacket or poncho for weather
  • Small flashlight on a keychain for dark rides
  • Chap stick
  • Sun block (travel size)
  • Hand sanitizer (travel size that hangs on a zipper)
  • Safety pins
  • Water bottle & powder drink mix
  • Candy and gum (you can't buy gum at WDW)
  • Camera and accessories
  • Sunglasses
  • Cell phone
  • Glow sticks
  • Trading pins/ lanyards
  • Mini fan during hot months
  • Kleenex

Hopefully these lists will help you prepare for your vacation to Walt Disney World. Have fun!
