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 @madelines.box
- 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
WARM DAY PACKING ESSENTIALS (Summer-October)
- 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

- Extra shirt for mom & dad (trust us)
- 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)
