Choose the right bag
Make a checklist
1. Huggies Diapers - little movers are our current favorites, they are great for our wiggly/squirmy and almost on the move Baby W., made with Leak Lock® (with up to 12 hour protection) they would be ideal for a long day at Disney. BJ's Wholesale Club is a great place to stock up on Huggies.
2. Huggies Wipes - in an easy to open travel size container. Wipes are absolutely essential at Disney for everything from sticky hands, to messy faces, and of course for diaper changes.
3. Changing pad - ideal one that is light and compact
4. Wet-bag/or Ziploc bag - it's pretty much inevitable that at some point during a day at Disney your little one will get messy or wet
5. Change of clothes for baby - I usually store the change of clothes inside the wet-bag to save space
6. Sippy cup or water bottle to refill - bring a lightweight and reusable cup you can refill for your little one
7. Bottle & formula - if you are bottle feeding at all, these are obviously essential. Powder formula in a small container or single serve packets work great.
8. Lightweight muslin blanket - These are great and serve so many purposes including a nursing cover, shade,
9. Small first aid kit with thermometer and fever relief- this is optional as the baby care center surely has these available but I like to keep these on me
10. Pacifier - I like the ones that have a cover that that you can keep on it until you need it
11. Baby food/snacks - single serve snacks and baby food in squeeze pouches are usually the easiest to pack and most sanitary.
12. Burp cloth/Bib - I like the lightweight ones that double as both
13. Hand sanitizer- obviously essential
14. Small toys - ones that clip on to the stroller are great to prevent getting dirty or lost
15, Sunscreen and hat - because it's Florida and the sun is bound to come out
16. Ponchos for the family - because it will either rain or you'll go on wet rides
17. Table toppers - not a necessity, but I like to throw them in my bag so we are ready to dine out. It makes meals and clean up so much easier especially for the stage Baby W is at.
18. Energizing snacks for parents - always good to throw in an energy bar or a single serve packet of trail-mix so us parents can keep up with our eager kiddos.
18. Baby carrier- I like to have a baby carrier with me, I usually either pack a sling in my bag or stick a soft structured carrier at the bottom of the stroller.
19. Small stroller fan/stroller rain cover- obviously not for the bag, but helpful to toss in the bottom of the stroller
Tips to keep in mind to help you pack light
2. Stay close by - When vacationing at Disney, staying near the parks where transportation is provided is really convenient. The three Disney resorts on the Monorail are most ideal with strollers, though we like the Wilderness Lodge. Staying on "on property" in a Disney Resort also will provide you with a MagicBand which is SO convenient. The MagicBand will act as your room key, park pass, and form of payment for food and merchandise (among other features).
3. Locate the baby care centers ahead of time - there is a baby care center in every Disney park. Be sure to find them on your map. These centers are air conditioned, quiet and provide a great respite. They are equipped with nursing rooms with rocking chairs, changing tables, an oven, sink, microwave, high chairs, and in case you forget anything - they sell all baby essentials including formula, diapers, baby food etc.
