    What is essential to bring along to the Disney parks?

    Hi Tiara! Welcome to planDisney!

    You have hit the perfect time in your Walt Disney World Resort vacation countdown to start planning what to bring with you on your trip. I always keep a few checklists going with what to pack in our suitcases, as well as what to pack for each day in the theme parks. The lists look different now than they did a year ago, but the fun we experience and the memories we make when we visit are still the same!

    Being well prepared for a day in the theme parks always puts my mind at ease and allows me to dive right into the magic with my family! Some essential items for us include sunscreen, ponchos for the unpredictable weather, small handheld fans for warmer days, dry socks for the whole family if we get wet on an attraction or rainy weather, masks (back-ups are helpful!), sunglasses or hats, our MagicBands or theme park tickets, spending money, and our phones for using the My Disney Experience mobile app and taking LOTS of pictures. If you are bringing little ones with you, it is helpful to have small snacks on hand to prevent "hangry" meltdowns, a change of clothes, and of course any other baby items like diapers, wipes, bottles, etc.

    Recently, my fellow planDisney Panelists compiled a list of their top 10 must-have items. Some of those items I have already mentioned, but you can find them all at the link I just included. I hope you find them as helpful as I have!

    Enjoy every moment of your upcoming vacation, Tiara! Please let us know if you have any other last-minute planning questions.
