We’ve talked about what you need in your Disney backpack for every day in the park, we’ve covered the best fast pass rides in each of Disney Worlds theme parks, but there was one thing I totally forgot to get to…. The ultimate Disney World Packing List.

So here is everything we packed for our trip to Disney World in a free printable pdf download just for you (I’ll leave it up to you whether or not you should get a Disney fanny pack)!

There are a lot of things that can go in here and depending on the age of your kids there might be a few things missing here.

Couple of packing tips while we’re here.


Packing tip #1 for Disney World

My wife had the brilliant idea to pack things into days. She would take the kids clothing for each day, and wrap it into a bundle using an elastic. So that when we got to the room at the end of the day, and the decision fatigue had set in, all we had to do was pick a bundle for each kid and it was done. No sorting, or fishing around for things.

It was the smartest thing I have ever seen.

At the end of every day in the Disney World parks, you are going to be beat. The days are very long (and very awesome) in the sun and when you get back to your room after the fireworks, you will just want to crash.

Packing tip #2 for Disney World

Before you leave home, make sure you have some outfits for everyone in each suitcase. Losing luggage is a reality for some travellers, and the last thing you want to find out when you land in Orlando is that one of your bags is in Los Angeles and will get to you in a few days.

Not good.

Instead pack each bag as a group effort. That ways there are some clothes for everyone in each case. We even went as far as to have one change in our carry-on bags, by the rare chance that both suitcases disappeared.

Disney is an awesome trip and the last thing you want on day 1 is to be wearing your travel clothes from yesterday.


Packing Tip #3  for Disney World

If you are staying at a Disney World Resort, you should make sure you know what you are doing before you leave for Orlando. Disney World offers free shuttle pick up and drop off from the airport, they will even collect your luggage in between certain times of day. Make sure you check your Disney World package details


Packing Tip #4 for Disney World

Flight delays, they happen, and it happened to us. Disney World is on top of this. They know that flights get delayed and that you will need a later pick up (because there are likely another 20+ other people that need a ride on your flight too), so just get to the Disney kiosk in the Orlando airport and they will look after you.
