The ultimate Disney World packing list – Word, PDF and Google Docs formats

Hate that nagging feeling that you're forgetting something on your trips? I do too. That's why I put together this huge Disney World packing list to help you remember lots of items that you might otherwise forget.

THIS LIST IS NOT INTENDED TO IMPLY YOU SHOULD BRING EVERYTHING ON IT.

You shouldn't (though one reader's mother did that once!). This is just an all-inclusive list to help jog your memory.

Now, let's take a look...

Please pin it, save it, print it. Whatever you like. I hope you find it helpful.

(Downloadable Word, PDF and Google Docs versions are at the bottom of this page OR you can get the WDW Prep Packing List app for iOS to bring a convenient version to your phone)

A Memory Scent! We bring a glade plug in of the same aroma every time we go to Disney (and only Disney) and leave it plugged in the room through our entire vacation. Every now and then at home we’ll plug it in for a day and the scent-memory lifts everyones mood even if we cant be in Disney =D

That’s great for your family, but for the family that comes after you, there’s going to be an artificial chemical stench filling the room, and for my family, that can be life-threatening due to anaphylactic airborne allergies. Please be considerate of others and rethink your aroma bomb.

Do you know about housekeeping??

What an awesome idea!!

Have to add…. Best thing we bring and is a must every year. Boot dryer and dryer sheets … Sounds dumb. But noone likes nasty smelly shoes! Simply place a dryer sheet in the shoe and place on the boot dryer… Also helps with the room smell… Especially if you have 6 pairs of nasty rain/ waterride shoes just sitting in your room all night!!!😝😝😝 sometimes they dont even have enough time to dry when they need put back on again.

Laura

Thank you for all of this! We are taking our kids to Disney for the first time and I’ve had so many questions. You have had amazing answers. You have already lessened my anxiety a ton!

Kristen Epperly

can you bring a wagon. the fold up ones. I have 3 kids and a wagon will work better than a stroller. but if wagons aren’t allowed we will just bring a stroller. thanks. great list. thanks for the sun block I totally forgot that one.

Larry

Liquid Benadryl is also great for long flights with young children. We take a red eye every year from Seattle so the kids can just sleep. We got a ton of compliments about our granddaughter’s wonderful behavior! Thank you liquid Benadryl! We just gave it to her in line at the ticketing desk so we could get it into the checked luggage last minute.

Our pediatrician recommended that we use allergy/decongestant for our children when flying to reduce pressure from extra fluid in ears/sinuses. It’s a bonus if it helps them doze off 🙂

Terra

if your child is not sick i dont recommend giving uneeded meds. a great alternative is melatonin for kids. its natural. we use Luna brand(Amazon) or if Zarbees honey all natural cough syrup night time.
trust me Im not judging I have totally done the same until I discovered these natural alternatives 🙂

this will be our fist trip and we will be going in november any suggestions on what is a must have for clothing? I am not sure what the weather is usually like in florida at this time of year

Ginger

We travel this time of year everytime. Days are warm but layer or take a light jacket because nights can get cool!

Katie

I would recommend making or buying Disney ears out of the park or on etsy. Also buy Disney stuffed animals out of the park and giving them to your kids in the park. They are so expensive and you could get them at 1/2 the price.

do anyone know if you need to bring swimming stuff to disneyland paris?

This was a great list! I used it in order to pack for our family’s first Disney World trip. My son is four so I added a few things to the list:

Quarters (for penny stretcher machines)
Nightlight
Foldable toddler toilet seat
Bandana (for wiping sweat off my forehead) – gross, I know. I sweat on command….
Toddler silverware

Miles

Maybe add “small cheap things for Jawa trading”

Lisa

Double-up on the undies in the summer! Not just a good idea for little ones who might have an accident, but for everyone to have fresh clothes after the mid-day pool/shower break & maybe to sleep in. My kids thought I was crazy when I told them to pack 10 for a 4 day trip, but we used them all!

Katrina

The M&M tube idea is fabulous! Myself, my husband, and our three year old son are going in about six months. Something I have to add is a pinch of patience. I know that for myself and my two guys we are good when it comes to waiting or the heat, but when mixed with thousands of other, more than likely less prepared tourists, it can be a bit frustrating. Mix it in with your pixie dust and all will have a magical time.

Kyra

We are planning for our second trip to Disney and I’m bring pool noodles in my suitcase to make “bumpers” for my 2-year-old who has outgrown the pack n play. Also for our first trip I packed some wide (2″) sparkly holiday ribbon and tied a huge bow onto the handle of my stroller. Disney “cast members” frequently rearrange strollers around the rides and the bright ribbon helped us find the stroller every time! Finally, I’m planning to collect some peanut butter and jelly tubs from restaurants in the month or so leading up to our trip and taking them along with some Ritz crackers for mini PB&J sandwiches 🙂

Layla

I would add a baby wrap/sling and toddler leash to the baby section. I’m bringing both this trip. Thanks, Shannon!

Kristle

If you don’t drink Coke products, bring it with you! I’m a Dr. Pepper person and my hubby finally had to make a convenient store run after the 3rd night. 🙂 This time I’m packing 3-4 can of Dr. Pepper!
