Packing Lists

When packing for your practically perfect WDW trip is a balance. You need to both try not to over pack - you will want that room in your suitcase for those special merch finds - and yet be prepared for the unexpected turns your trip may take. We tend to keep clothing packing to a minimum, focusing on comfort. But we try to think of all the medication and sundry items that may be needed. We have found if we don’t have it - **cough cough**Ace bandage for a twisted ankle*** we will need it and have to buy it at a premium or even end up with an uber ride to a local Pharmacy. Let’s look at what we bring when traveling to Walt Disney World.

Trip Packing List

  • An outfit for everyday - from undies on out. Plus and extra one in case you get soaked. *** Pro-packing tip - As a space saver we usually plan a couple of pants/shorts that weccan re-wear - or wash and hang dry in a pinch

  • A couple of sets of sleep clothes - we re-wear them without a problem.

  • Compression Ankle socks one pair for each day- plus an extra pair

  • COMFORTABLE shoes you can stand up in all day. Leave the cute pairs at home - plus an extra pair in case they get soaked or start to rub wrong. Leave the cute at home, go for comfort and support here. NEVER bring new shoes.

  • SUN SCREEN - even if you are going in the cooler months this is vital!

  • Hat and sunglasses

  • Aloe Vera or your preferred sun-burn treatment
