1923 Main Street: Disney Travel Style Podcast

Packing for your Walt Disney World vacation doesn't have to be stressful or overthought. In fact, it can be fun to pick your Disney outfits and clothes to match your vacation plans and what time of year you're traveling to Disney World.

The Ultimate Packing List for Walt Disney World

If you're flying to Walt Disney World, one of the first things to consider is whether you plan to check a large suitcase or simply go with carry-on. Obviously a larger suitcase will give you more space and you can bring more stuff. But is that a wise move even if you have the space?
If you're traveling with kids, then that means you'll have a few more things to pack. If they're old enough to have their own kid-size suitcase, then that can help. Otherwise, you may be to bring a checked bag or two.
Another important factor is whether you plan to stay onsite in a Disney Vacation Club Villa. Having access to a washer/dryer makes it a lot easier to pack light. You can do a quick mid-week wash and you're good to go.
Walt Disney World Packing List: 

Carry-on Suitcase, Packing Light, One Week Stay
  • 7 pairs socks and underwear
  • 7 shirts (mix and match as you see fit, t-shirts, button-up short sleeve shirts etc.)
  • 4 pairs shorts (or skirts or leggings) or 2-3 longer bottoms if a cool winter vacation
  • 1 pair pajamas
  • 1 swimsuit
  • 1 pair flip flops
  • Toiletries (shavers, pain relievers, hair care, etc.)
Backpack/Extra Bag
  • Wallet, Cash, Cards
  • Magic Bands
  • Electronics, Charger blocks, USB charging hub, Camera, Laptop/Tablet
  • Sunglasses
  • Other small miscellaneous items
Other considerations
  • Poncho, tiny palm-size travel umbrella
We recommend NOT to pack extraneous items like water bottles, portable fans and so on unless certain conditions are met (as covered in the audio episode). These types of items are usually a waste of space as there are plenty of opportunities all around Walt Disney World to keep cool, get fresh cold ice water for free and so on. Avoid any trinkets that take up space and add weight. Many packing lists include far too much of this type of thing and for most travelers, they are simply not necessary. 
How to Pack a Suitcase to Optimize Space
Fold, Roll or Compression Cubes? What's the Best Packing Method?
If you're trying to make the absolute most of the space you have in a suitcase, is rolling your clothes the best way to go? 
Flat folding tends to consume more space, although is does have an advantage for collared shirts. In some cases, a combination of roll and fold will work best. Listen to the full discussion and insights in the podcast episode.
