What to pack? What to wear? Many people spend quite some time deliberating over what they put in their suitcase for their Walt Disney World trip. Whilst everyone will have their own essential packing list, there are some wardrobe essentials that everyone should consider for their holiday! Yes, most of these essential items can be purchased in Walt Disney World, but if you’re on a tighter budget it can make sense to purchase these before you travel. Here’s my list of 5 wardrobe essentials for Walt Disney World!
Theres nothing better to get you in Disney Holiday mood than some theme Tshirts! Walt Disney World does an amazing clothing range in the parks, but it can be exciting to purchase some essential Tshirts before you travel! From cute kids outfits to funny adult T-Shirts, there are a wealth of Disney themed options out there, particulary if you are celebrating when you’re away (honeymoon, birthday, anniversary…)
A comfortable pair of shoes is an essential for any Walt Disney World holiday. With so much walking, it is imporant to ensure your feet are comfortable to ensure you dont end up with blisters (or even an injury!). With so many outlets in Florida, many choose to buy new trainers during their stay, but you still need to ensure you have a pair of comfortable shoes packed that will do until you make it to the outlets. I persoanlly tend to ensure I have a couple pairs of comfortable footwear as I find swapping shoes during the day helps keep my feet from feeling too tired!
Florida’s temperatures will feel pleasantly warm for most visitors, regardless of when you visit. However, chilly evenings, or evening a cold snap during the day is not uncommon. It is important to ensure you have some warm layers with you to ensure you dont spend an evening shivering while waiting for the fireworks! Whilst this is an essential, we tend to buy a disney themed jacket when on holiday as part of our souvenir traditions; the choice is yours as to whether you pack one or treat yourself.
You’ll find mouse ears and hats everywhere in Disney, and they make brilliant keepsakes and souvenirs! We just love our souvenir mouse hats, which are a packing essential for each of our trips. However, they can be pricey, particularly if you are buying for a larger family, so have a look at some cheaper options before you go. Similarly, you can find some amazing mouse ear hairbands, perfecly themed for little girls with long hair; consider a few in different colours from cheaper outlets in order to coordinate with outfits!
With 2 water parks and a pool at every Resort Hotel, packing swimsuits is definitley essential! However, with so many people focusing on getting around all the theme parks, you’d be surprised at how packing a swimming costume can be overlooked. Make sure you pack one that you are comfortable in, and consider how many water rides you may wish to try when making your choice as well, as some more thrilling ones can lead to swimsuit misshaps! Keep an eye out for suits that cover your kids and include a protection rating as well to ensure they are protected from the Florida Sun.
The amazing thing about Walt Disney World is that even if you should forget some of your essentials, chances are you’ll be able to purchase it in the resort. This amazing flexibility is one of the reasons why I love Walt Disney World!
