14 Things You Should Pack For Your Magical Vacation

Disney Poncho
Planning a Disney trip can be a lot of fun. But deciding what to bring with you into the parks can be a little daunting. Some guests choose the "less is more" approach and take only what fits in their pockets. Others know that they plan to be in the park all day long, they have children with them, or just want to make sure nothing is left to chance. Whether you are the latter or the former, we think you will find our list of suggestions for things you should pack helpful! Let's get to it!

Rain Gear for the Family

Florida tends to experience plenty of popup afternoon showers.  Don’t let a damp park day slow your family down.  Pack ponchos, lightweight foldable rain jackets and other rain gear in your park pack to ensure you can keep pressing on even through the rain.  Packing your own rain gear will save time and money when the showers start at Walt Disney World.

Magic Band and Park Swag

You need not wait until you arrive in Orlando to pick up awesome Disney swag, purchase some online at the Disney store or other stores near you so you can enjoy them for your entire vacation.  Decorating Magic Bands with temporary tattoos and sealing them with clear fingernail polish is another fun way for the family to prepare for a Disney trip and arrive on the Disney property in style.

Family or Character Shirts

Many families at Walt Disney World are now sporting family shirts.  Screen print or embroidered shirts with a funny quote, names, or favorite characters are seen across the park. They make a fun family souvenir and look great in photos.  Numerous family shirt options can be found on Etsy or other craft sites for families looking to make a fashion statement during their vacation.
