Packing List For Disney World – 29 Disney Themed Essentials

Although school has just started back for most, the next holidays aren’t that far away so it’s the perfect time to plan your next family holiday to Disney World.

Here’s your Disney themed packing list for Disney World (or Disneyland or all of them) which includes lots of essential items you might find come in handy as well as your everyday items.

I do realize that you probably won’t go as crazy and buy everything on this list, but there are some really great ideas on there and some of them might just be something for Christmas, too (You’re welcome – it’s only 3 months away!).

At the bottom of this post you’ll find a downloadable packing list for Disney World which you can print out and check off as you pack.

1. Disney Luggage

If you want to fully dive into your Disney-themed holiday to Disney World (Or Disneyland), this is where you should start!

Click on image for more information and price

You just can’t go past this cute Disney luggage set by American Tourister. It has very high ratings and reviews by people who have bought this set.

You can get it in many different designs, but to be honest, I think Mickey Pants is the nicest looking design.

You’ll get a set of 2 hardside cases, one 21″ carry-on and one 28″ checked suitcase.

As these are hardside cases, the measurements do not include wheels and handles, but the 21″ should still be fine as a carry-on for most airlines; measurements including wheels and handles adds up to 24″.

It might be worth checking with your airline beforehand.

The cases open like shells which means right in the middle – one side has straps to hold down your belongings, the other side has a mesh pocket divider.

2. Disney Daypack

Of course you’ll need a backpack or day pack for your day out in the park so you can bring all the bit and bops one needs, such as a water bottle and a snack, tissues and wet wipes, band aids and sunscreen and all the other little things.

  1. Hi Petra. All my life I have wanted to visit Disney land, ever since I was a little child I have been a huge fan of Walt Disney and the marvelous characters he has produced over the years. Unfortunately I never got to visit the place, and now we have Disney World.  

    My wife and I are hoping to visit your fantastic country in about 18 months time. I also hope to to take a couple of my beautiful grandchildren with me. They also love the Disney characters. 

    There are a number of items on that fantastic list of yours that I know my grandchildren will love to have, but the most important items would be the Disney Day packs for the kids and the Disney luggage for all of us . Thank you for bringing back some wonderful memories. Jim

    1. Oh that sounds like it’s going to be a wonderful time with your grandchildren. Maybe just bookmark this post for later and you’ll be sure not to forget something important. 

  2. This is really nice and useful as I’ve always wanted to take a time to visit Disney world and this post came as a reminder that I still have something on my list that I’m yet to fulfill. 

    Its gonna be really nice to go to Disney World with Disney themed items that are going to be useful during the holiday and that list has made it all convenient for check, I love the list, it is filled with beautiful and useful items With beautiful pictures of each. 

    I’ll make sure I get some of these essentials whenever I’m ready to go on my holiday to Disney world.  Thanks for sharing this article, it is really informative and will definitely be helpful.

  3. I find this list very comprehensive as it listed all the things needed for a wonderful trip to Disney. 

    On top of that, it’s a cute idea to have the whole family wearing shirts or clothes that are Disney-themed so I’d like to add my emphasis on #5 on your list. 

    And also, #25 with all the members of the family wearing Disney baseball cap. The Disney-themed shirts and baseball caps are a perfect match and would make the family look great in souvenir photos.

    1. Yes, you’re right, that’s the most basic preparation you’ll have to do for your Disney trip. Shirts and caps are the minimum and it’ll definitely make you feel more at home at Disney. 

      Thanks for stopping by.

  4. My grandkids are heading over to Disneyland next spring so I will send their parents here to go shopping as my granddaughter loves Disney and she loves getting dressed up to look like a princess so I best buy her an outfit as well- thanks Petra and thank you for all the great products that are available to really get into the Disney role and theme.

    I have bookmarked your page as I might have to get a few of those things for Christmas!

  5. Hello, Petra.  

    First, I won’t be letting my Grandchildren read this post 🙂  It could get a little pricy in my pocketbook if you know what I mean 🙁

    That said there are a lot of things on this list that would make excellent Christmas gifts.  Any child would love to have something off this list.  My wife and I might even be interested in the socks.

    Those Micky and Minny ear headbands and hats are almost a must for any child (young or old).  I would be willing to bet that they sell more of those than anything else in their gift shops.

    Outside of that, your packing list would be a must.  My wife and I never go anywhere without making a list of what I want to take with me.

    Don’t know what happened but there are no images on your post?  

    Wayne

    1. Hi there Wayne and thanks for stopping by.

      First of all, if there are no images then that might be because you have ad block on? There should be 30 images all up.

      Second, yes, if you let your grandkids see this post they’ll be giving you a huge wish list next. 

      But yes, some of these are great to take to Disney and some of them are just for the big Disney fan – and who isn’t? 

  6. Wow, that is a whole lot of M-i-c-k-e-y M-o-u-s-e.  I know some Disney Fans who love it that way and I am referring to adults.  I can see them wearing Mickey’s ears and other clothing you mentioned just to feel like a child again.  Purchasing Disney themed clothing and gear before arriving at Disney World will save a person much cash.  These objects are much more expensive at the theme park.

    1. Yes it’s Mickey Mouse to the max 🙂

      And you’re absolutely right, all of this featured here would have a much higher price tag
