Packing for a Walt Disney World Trip

It’s no secret that I love traveling to Disney destinations. There is a lot of planning work involved (which is what I do for a living of course), but there is also a lot of packing involved. The climate in Florida can make packing a challenge, and depending on what you plan to do on your visit to central Florida your list may look a little different than mine. I did however want to put together a basic list of things to think about packing. I do NOT go into super great detail as far as kid and baby items because that can differ so greatly depending on the age of your kids, but hopefully this list will help get you started and think of a few things you had not thought of before.

I have broken my list down into two parts, one for items you may need in the parks, and another for items for the resort/your hotel stay. Happy packing!

For the Parks:

  • Backpack —> The easiest way to carry everything
  • Camera/charger
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen —> LOTS, and reapply!
  • Ponchos —-> For pop up showers + rides you may get wet on.
  • Water bottle —–> There are fountains in the park to refill a bottle
  • Hat/visor
  • Walking shoes —-> COMFY shoes!
  • Comfy clothes
  • Jacket —-> Even if it’s hot outside, the A/C will be blasting inside!
  • Snacks —> You may bring food into the parks, but no glass.
  • Hand sanitizer —-> bathe in it.


Extra points for Mickey luggage!

For the Resort:

  • Phone/charger
  • Makeup
  • Toiletries —-> No hairdryer needed
  • Nicer clothes —-> For nicer dinners out
  • Swimsuit
  • Running clothes —-> for dorks like me
  • Ziplock bags —> for snacks, random loose items, etc.
  • Extra bag —-> to use as carry on you can fill with souvenirs
  • Book/magazine —-> for at the pool/on the plane
  • Garbage bag for dirty clothes —> Easiest way to transport home.
  • Toys for kids/keep busy
  • Lysol —–> We spray down the room, doorknobs, TV remote, etc.

Don’t forget, I am a Disney travel planner and would love to book your next Disney World, Disneyland, or Disney Cruise vacation for you! Email for details.
