When packing for a trip to Disneyland with kids, it can be quite a challenge. There are a lot of different things to think about.
But if you plan in advance, you can save yourself money, as well as stress. Out in the park that days are long. So you need to make sure that you’re fully quipped. Here are a few essential as well as ideas for packing for your next Disney trip . I hope you find it useful!
Pack Your Own Food
If you’re not visiting on a meal plan, then it is a good idea to take your own food and drink into the park. You will have to take it all through security, but you are actually allowed to bring in your own food. Think of things like fruit snacks and granola bars, for quick and easy snacks. Nothing worse than a hungry toddler waiting in a line, right? Plus, the food can be a little pricey in the parks, so you save yourself some money there, as well as time trying to find a cart or store that sells something your kids will eat.
Pack For Different Weather
Most of the time, the Orlando parks are going to be in the sunshine, right? So you should pack sunscreen, sunglasses, and all take hats. But from time to time, you will experience some rain. Think about August and September in Florida, for instance. There are storms most afternoons. Although brief, they can get you soaked. So packing light jackets for everyone is a good idea too.
As you want to have a layer to take off, so you’re dry underneath, but not get too hot, as it is still warm when it rains. You could look at the Stone Island Kids range, for example. They have clothing for all occasions, including baseball hats for warmer weather, as well as jackets for cooler or wetter weather.
Use the BabyCenter
All of the Disney parks will have a baby care center. So if you have really little ones that need to get out of the heat for a little while, then you could take them there to cool off. You can nurse them off to sleep and even prepare food. They have extra things like wipes and diapers too. So if you do fall short, then there are things you can use. I think it's a great place to head to during naptime, as they can feed, cool off and then have a sleep in the stroller.
Pack Disney Gear
If you and the kids like to wear a mickey mouse t-shirt or wear the ears and hats, then it is a good idea to get theme beforehand. They will cost so much more when you buy them in the park. The same goes for things like glow sticks if you’ll be in the park after dark. Just pick some up from the dollar store and then you won’t be spending a fortune on things like that in the park.
