There are items that I pack to bring to Walt Disney World that I wouldn’t even thinking of bringing on other vacations.
A Disney Vacation is like no other, and that includes the the packing list.
5 Items I Always Pack That No One Thinks Of Bringing to Walt Disney World
The Quick Service locations at the Resorts do have little sinks to rinse out your Refillable Mugs. But, that’s as clean as they’re going to get, since there’s no soap nearby.
After a day of refilling these bad boys, our mugs need a thorough cleaning.
So, for this reason, I always pack a travel size container with some dish soap, so I can start each day with a clean cup.
You’d be surprised how much I use Ziplock Bags while at Disney.
Whether we’re bringing snacks into the parks, saving snacks for later, or using them as phone protection on wet rides, I always manage to use them somehow.
Have a wet poncho from that sudden rain storm? Yup, I use a large ziplock bag for those too.
Because I never know what I will need them for, I pack a few different sizes.
The most popular item that Guests leave in their hotel room is the phone charger.
It makes sense. They’re easy to overlook. And with families having multiple electronics that need charging, it’s easy to forget something.
This is why I pack a small Power Strip in my luggage.
This way, I have my phone, ipad, external batteries for my phone, and my camera all in one place. It’s harder to forget something when everything is located in one place.
If you’re a Disney regular, this may be second nature to you.
But, Moleskins are something that most Guests don’t even think to pack, especially first-time Disney travelers.
I wear the same shoes to Disney that I do to take my dog out for a walk, go to the zoo, park, or even other amusement parks. But, for whatever reason, Disney is the only place that gives me sores on my feet.
But, I’ve learned from my past mistakes. Now, if I suspect something is coming on, I cover it before it has a chance to get really painful. Because, let’s face it, there’s no way I’m slowing down at Disney.
No one thinks they will be doing laundry on their Disney vacation (at least I don’t).
But, what happens when your child spills something on their clothes or runs out of socks mid-week? Yup…that happened to my son.
Now, I make sure I pack some travel size laundry detergent on every Disney trip I take.
Disney does sell laundry soap and fabric softener in their laundry facilities. But, at those prices, you can save money by bringing your own from home.
Words of advice
Before you pack, it’s always a good idea to check the rules set by Walt Disney World to see if it will be allowed into the Parks.
Some rules have been in effect for some time now, but others, such as loose ice and size restrictions for strollers, are fairly new.
So, check everything out before packing for that next trip.
