Packing Tips When Traveling to Disney World with a Baby or Toddler

DIY Diaper Kits:

  • Pre-pack individual diaper change kits in ziplock bags. Include a diaper, a few wipes, and a disposable changing pad. It makes diaper changes quick and easy without rummaging through your whole bag. The Baby Care Centers are a great spot for diaper changes.

Don’t Forget the Soap:

  • If you use bottles or sippy cups, don’t forget to bring soap for cleaning them. We like to put soap on a sponge and then cut it up into small pieces after it dries.

Consider Ordering Some Things:

  • To reduce the amount you’ll need to pack, consider ordering things for your room like diapers and child-friendly food to be delivered to your resort.

Rent a Stroller:

Pre-Pack Snacks and Meals:

  • Bring pre-packaged snacks and easy-to-eat meals for your baby. Disney parks have some baby-friendly food options, but it’s always good to have backups of things you know your little one will eat.

Label Everything:

  • Label all your baby’s items, including clothes, bottles, and toys. This helps prevent losing anything and makes it easier to keep track of your belongings.

Portable High Chair:

  • A portable high chair or booster seat can make feeding times in your room much easier. Look for one that attaches to tables or chairs and is easy to clean.

Plan for Naps:

  • Plan your day around your baby’s nap schedule. Consider bringing or renting a stroller that reclines so your baby can nap comfortably while you continue to enjoy the park.

Stay Cool:

  • Florida can be very hot, so plan for ways to keep your baby cool. In addition to a stroller fan, consider cooling towels and frequent breaks in air-conditioned areas.

Packing cubes! Don't forget packing cubes. They're a lifesaver for keeping baby clothes and stuff organized.

Not sure about bringing so much gear to Disney. Anyone else have experience with just renting what you need there? Seems like it'd be easier.

You can definitely rent gear! Many of the companies in our stroller rental article also rent baby gear.

This is a lifesaver! Could you also share tips on healthy snacks that are easy to carry around the park? Keeping my toddler's diet balanced while on vacation is always a challenge.

Snack ideas: fruit that doesn't require cutting, fruit snacks, granola bars, nuts, Pringles (so they don't break), and crackers.
