What to Pack for Disney World: Your Ultimate Disney World Packing List

What do you pack when you're going to Disney World? Not only do you have your basic day to day essentials, but you'll also want to consider what to pack in your park bag, whether or not you'll be making your own food, small children, laundry... it goes on and on.

Here I'll break down your packing necessities, and give you my ultimate Disney World packing list.

Travel Essentials

Any time you travel, there are documents that you know you'll want to have with you. When you travel to Disney, you need those same important documents... and a few extras:

  • Drivers License or ID
  • Magic Bands
  • Park Tickets (if not electronic)
  • Magical Express tags
  • Boarding Pass

Clothing Items

Clothes to pack

In addition to your day to day clothing items, you'll also want to consider the type of weather that you might be seeing during your trip. While we tend to think of Florida as always hot and humid, that just isn't always the case.

Cool mornings and evenings and rainy afternoons might be a reality of your trip. If you are unsure of what type of weather to expect, check out my month to month weather information at Disney World.

Some notes for clothing you may want to pack:

  • Breathable cotton shirts, shorts, or dresses
  • Extra socks to make sure your feet stay dry
  • A light jacket or sweater for cooler mornings or evenings
  • Comfortable shoes that are broken in


toiletries to pack

In addition to your every day toiletries, you'll want to make sure that you are packing a few extra things that you'll need at Disney World. Some of those things include:

  • Sunscreen (I like to also bring a sunscreen stick for easy reapplication on your face)
  • Extra hair ties to keep your hair up on hot days
  • Lip balm
  • Aloe in case of burns

Disney provides shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in each resort room. If you like a certain brand for these products you may want to pack your own.

Park Bag

park bag items to pack

Unlike other vacations, when you travel to Disney World you'll need to take in to consideration what you want to carry with you in your park bags. Some of my favorite essentials include:

  • Water bottle
  • Sun screen
  • Phone charger
  • Cash / Credit Card / ID
  • Ponchos
  • Autograph Book
  • Hand held fan

While this list is by no way complete (see my full list for more ideas), this should definitely get you started. You'll want to consider weather, children's needs, meals/snacks at the parks, etc.

Babies, Toddlers, and Kids

If you are traveling with kids, you'll want to consider their needs when packing. Kids have different clothing needs, food needs, and more. Here are a few of my kid essentials:

  • Diapers
  • Wipes
  • Bottles or Sippy Cups
  • Bubbles
  • Stickers
  • Formula / Jar Food

You definitely know your child's needs. So make sure you add anything special that you need to the full list below.

Some Things to Keep in Mind

If you don't want to overpack, remember that you can have groceries delivered to your resort. If you would like to save room in your suitcase on clothing you might consider doing laundry at your resort. You can purchase laundry detergent, but to save money you may want to pack travel size laundry as well.
