    we are leaving in 36 days. what are the few things i need to make sure other then sun screen(i'm a fair skinned redhead) and comfy shoes to pack. we have me, DH DD(8) and DS(6). will be at disney from june 19th-26th.

    Hi Katie:

    Great question. And I'm pretty sure you are a Disney World expert since you've already identified the two most important items to pack, sunscreen and comfortable shoes.

    Here are some other helpful packing tips:
    • Rain Poncho. The weather in Florida can be interesting. It can rain suddenly and heavily for an hour or two and then clear up the rest of the day. I would be prepared to have your ponchos ready for any unexpected storm. While you can purchase a poncho on property, they are usually cheaper when bought at home and are easy to transport.
    • Appropriate clothing for hot, warm, and cool temperatures.
    • A small backpack, purse, or tote.
    • Sunglasses.
    • Bathing suits.
    • Credit card and a little bit of cash (for gratuity or theoccasional taxi)
    • Identification.
    The good news is that there are few "must haves" that you can't find on Disney World property should you forget something. Enjoy your vacation.
