    Hello! I am leaving for Disney in 20 days!! We are so excited! I am having anxiety about forgetting something. What are some last minute things that I need to remember to bring and do?! Thank you!!

    Hi, Mariah!

    Really, there is nothing you can forget that will make or break your vacation.  Especially if you have reserved a package with WDW, everything will be waiting for you at check-in.  But, as a mom, I have my list I go through each trip and here it is:

    -If you bought tickets ahead of time (AAA, Undercover Tourist) make sure these are packed!
    -ID for the airport and to check-in at your resort
    -List of your dining reservations, reservation numbers, flight times
    -Money/credit cards/debit cards
    -Phone/tablet chargers

    Then there are the necessities for the parks:

    -Large tote bag or backpack
    -Autograph books and pens
    -Umbrellas/rain ponchos/hats/sunglasses
    -Extra T-shirts
    -Jackets for cool evenings
    -Snacks/crackers/refillable water bottles

    This should cover the basics. Pack ahead of time so you are not rushed, and you will be just fine!  Enjoy your magical stay in Walt Disney World.

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
