Packing for your Walt Disney World Trip

Each time we travel I hand each of my kids their own packing list. I know this sounds crazy but this really cuts down on the havoc in the house. I started this when they were about 7. When they are under 12...or immature, I have them lay everything out in outfits and I check it before it's in the luggage.

We bring cases of water in checked luggage because we fly Southwest. A bottle water is about $4 at crew drinks over a case of water in a week.

So this is my list complete with all the items MY family needs. I have made notes of things you might want to add as well as things that are at Disney that you don’t need to pack. There is a pretty big store at every Disney Resort but obviously prices are silly.

I did not remove things to make it generic because I thought it might help you remember what all you need to pack for your family. We do laundry at Disney because it is right next to the pools and it allows us to bring less.
