Packing for Disneyland



This photo shows a few necessary items we like to pack for a day at the parks, but read on for a full list! Items will obviously vary from person to person. Almost ANYTHING can be purchased at both parks, including OTC meds at First Aid facilities, Disney Hotel shops & most stores in the parks. Baby items can be purchased with cash only at both Baby Care Centers

In addition to our passes & wallet, here is what we bring. Not everything we list is pictured.

  • Backpack – easiest for us to carry around – shop the Petunia Pickle Bottom x Disney collaboration here.
  • Extra bag to store under the stroller with items you don’t mind leaving behind while on rides, etc
  • Stroller – we each have a Double Bob & Bob Revolution SE
  • Stroller lock – pictured in top right corner from Buy Buy Baby – you can’t lock stroller to Disney property, just lock wheels together
  • Solly Baby Wrap &/or Ergo Baby Carrier
  • Extra clothes
  • Pajamas for kids if staying late
  • Sweatshirt/pants for evenings (for cooler months of the year, usually November – March)
  • Emergency contact temporary tattoos from
  • Lunch bag with snacks/cooler bag
  • Pacifier & pacifier clip
  • Diapers & wipes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Teething jewelry for the babes (Great for waiting in line – Mama & Little makes our fave)!
  • A few toys & coloring books/crayons to keep kids happy while waiting in lines or for parades
  • Blanket(s) – for kids & a bigger one to claim spot for parade
  • Phone charger or portable charger in case charging lockers are full


  • Stroller fan – We use a Dreambaby clip on fan from Walmart, Amazon, or Bed, Bath & Beyond – if your fan runs out of batteries, you can purchase some at almost every store at the parks
  • Spray bottle from travel toiletry section at Target
  • Spray bottle/fan combo can be purchased at the parks for around $18 – actually lifesaving, but doesn’t clip to the stroller!
  • Umbrella for waiting in lines that have no covering from the sun
  • Extra clothes
  • Extra shoes that can get wet at Princess Dot’s Puddle Park in A Bug’s Land or the Paradise Park Splash Pad in CA Adventure (Native Shoes are the best kiddo shoes for Summer & water play)!

  • Extra shirt for mom & dad (trust us)
  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Hat for mom, dad & littles
  • Lip balm
  • Reusable water bottles (we love Hydroflask & sippy cups – see #mkmfilteredwateratdisney on instagram for all the filtered water refill locations in the parks)
  • Lunch pail/cooler bag & snacks


  • Ponchos – can be purchased at any store at the parks ($10 for adult, $9 for kids), but are cheaper on Amazon, at Target, or Walmart
  • Water Proof Stroller Cover
  • Rain boots
  • Extra socks for everyone
  • Extra shoes for the kiddos if they don’t have rain boots
