Sorry it’s been so long since my last post; school got really busy at the end of the semester and I’m currently taking summer classes online so I can graduate next spring!
I’m sure you’ve figured out from the title of this post, but I’m currently in Disney World! I’m on a girls trip with my best friend, Megan (who wrote this post a couple years ago when we did a fashion challenge together!), and will be coming back on Thursday. I’ve been to WDW twice before, but it’s her first time so it’s an extra-special trip!
Today, I thought I’d share some tips on what and how to pack for a Walt Disney World vacation.
Tip #1: Check the weather before you leave! It’s always hot, but it’s good to be prepared in case you’re not used to extreme heat.
Tip #2: Pack a light sweater or another light layer! Even though it’s hot during the day, it can get chilly once the sun goes down. Layers are also good in case you start to get sunburnt.
Tip #3: Bring a water bottle for in the parks! Staying hydrated is key at WDW. It’s super easy to get caught up in all of the magical attractions, rides, and yummy food that you can forget to drink water.
Tip #4: Dress for comfort, not style! You’ll be walking a lot, so make sure you’re comfortable in what you pack. This includes shoes! Make sure you break in any shoes you want to wear on your trip before you leave. Your feet will thank you!
Helpful Things I Packed:
1) Portable phone charger
I got this one at Target for about $5! Not only is it super cute, but it’s small and lightweight so it’s perfect for in your park bag!
Disney World is one of the few theme parks that will let you bring in your own food and snacks. There’s a full list of what you can and can’t bring online, so look at that before you go! We brought granola bars and some almonds.
3) Sunglasses/ Umbrella/Rain Poncho
The weather in Orlando can be unpredictable sometimes. Make sure you’re prepared for the sunshine, and the rain that will most likely hit WDW every afternoon (only for a short period of time though!).
4) Hand Sanitizer
This is always good to have! I got a cute holder for mine to clip to my bag so I can get to it easily.
5) Make Your Own Autograph book!
I bought a small sketchbook that I’m planning on having the characters sign! I’m also going to put photos in it so it doubles as a photo album too!
Don’t forget your Magic Bands if you’re staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel!
And of course, you can’t go to Disney without a pair of ears!

Check back next week for a recap of our trip!
Have a magical week!
