14 Things You Should Pack For Your Magical Vacation


Pool and Water Park Necessities

Remembering to pack any pool and water park materials your family needs will save you serious money.  Goggles, swim masks, water bomb toys and swim floaters are generally available at Disney resorts but are cheaper when guests remember to bring them from home.

Hand Warmers, Gloves, and Hats in Winter

Seeing cold weather gear on a packing list for a Florida vacation probably looks a little silly but for guests visiting in January, cold weather gear is an important packing detail.  While midday is generally very comfortable during the winter months guests may get chilly during the evenings waiting for fireworks, riding the windy boat between theme parks or hopping between attractions.  Gloves, sweatshirts or coats that can be layered are a great idea for evening winter fun at Walt Disney World.  Hand warmers are a cheap and easy way to ditch the gloves and keep your hands warm.

Medications and First Aid Items

When someone in your family gets sick at Walt Disney World you have no choice but to buy the needed medication.  Packing a basic bag of medication along with few first aid supplies will save you time and money when those items are needed.  I revamped an old waterproof makeup bag into a small, lightweight medicine kit that we take into the parks each day.
