What are you packing?


#1

From items in your park bag to the things you throw in your suitcase at the last second? What do you all bring?


#2

Normal stuff plus variety of ziplocks (great for water rides and snacks), power strip, bandaids, and Minnie ears.


#3

Ponchos, Ponchos, Ponchos! Amazon has some great deals. Don’t pay theme park prices!

Toilet Paper!! Maybe the paper in the Deluxes is better but if you are at a moderate or value, your bum will appreciate the Charmin! lol

I’m all about minimalism. I flew from the UK for a two week stay last year and just had one cabin bag. No queueing at the baggage carousel. First to the immigration lines. Perfect!

I bought a tote bag to carry stuff round the parks but kept trimming its contents. This summer I plan on carrying a much smaller bag with just the essentials.

Totally agree with @profmatt’s minimalist strategy. You can find lots of WDW packing lists out there, but I prefer to think of them as “overpacking lists”. You are not taking a solo trek across the Antarctic, so you do not have to pack for every eventuality. Pack the essentials and leave it at that.

I admit to being an overpacker. But my family appreciates I usually have whatever they need on hand! My park bag has: bandaids, moleskin, Tylenol, ponchos, fans and cooling towels if a warm time of year, baggies of various sizes, extra battery charger and cable for iphone, chapstick, sunscreen. Other items I include in my regular luggage: what we refer to as the ‘octopus’ - a multi-port charger for ipads, iphones, chargers, etc, clothes pins (for drying bathing suits in the room), a deck of cards and cribbage board (DS and I like to sit on the balcony at our resort and play to end a day), my KYSS bag for the pool…and probably a bunch of other stuff I will never need! :wink:

I have an AA credit card that allows one free checked bag per person in travel group. DH is already planning to stash Charmin Ultra Strong in his suitcase.
