Planning a trip to Disney World this summer? You might not think that packing for summer is any different than packing for Spring, but the truth is that the summer is more hot & humid than any other time of the year. This Disney World summer packing list will make sure you are prepared for the unpredictable weather in Florida!
Disney World Summer Packing List
You might not think you need a special packing list for the summer at Disney World, but let me tell you, these are some items you will be glad to have with you when it’s humid and over 90 degrees:
Florida in the summer means that it will rain just about every day.
Typically, the rain hits in the afternoon and doesn’t last long.
Bring an inexpensive Rain Poncho so you won’t have to buy one at the park!
This non-comedogenic roll-on sunscreen delivers UVA/UVB protection and is packed with Vitamin E. It is oil-free, water-resistant and Hawaii 104 Reef Act Compliant. This Face Stick is great for all skin types.
In order to make sure you don’t get sunburned on your vacation you will need to reapply sunscreen throughout the day.
I bring a sunscreen stick in my Disney day bag because it is easy to apply when you are on the go.
3. Misting Fans
These misting fans can be a real lifesaver on a hot day in the parks. It is the perfect way to cool you off when you are in line for a ride or waiting for the parade to begin.
4. Small Travel Blanket
This travel blanket makes it very easy to be folded and packed back into the attached storage pouch, Hook it onto your bag or simply put it in your pocket! It's so small and compact it will not take up much space.
If you have to sit on the pavement to watch the parade, you will be glad to have a picnic-style blanket to place on the ground.
The black asphalt retains heat and you can easily burn your skin if you touch it.
Choose one that is also waterproof in case you have to lay it on wet pavement.
5. Sunglasses & Sunglass Strap
Never lose a pair of sunglasses again. This Sunglass Strap will fit securely around the ends of your sunglasses, and keep them on your face or hang comfortably on your chest instead of tightly around your neck. The stretchy Neoprene straps will fit most sunglass frames.
You won’t want to be without your sunglasses.
You will find yourself taking your glasses on & off quite a bit, so it might serve you to have a sunglass strap to keep them from being misplaced.
6. Insulated Water Bottle
This bottle has Tri-Layer Insulation with radiant heat reflective technology keeps you refreshed and restored in any and all temperatures
It is Leak Proof. The Sport Cap design guarantees leakproof transport, giving you the freedom to go
100% BPA-free insulated water bottle
Did you know that ice water is free at Disney counter service restaurants? We like to bring our own lightweight, insulated bottles with us to the parks and refill them with ice water throughout the day.
7. Freezable insulated lunch bag
We often bring drinks & snacks to the park. One of the best purchases you can make is for a Packit bag because they keep everything cold!
You just pop it in the freezer and it stays cold for hours!
8. Cooling towel
Did I mention how hot it gets in Disney World in the summer?
These cooling towels are amazing. Simply put a little water on them and wrap them around your neck. They turn icy cold and dry incredibly fast!
9. Hair Ties & Brush
Space-saving full-size hair brush folds down to mini size, so it's great for a purse, backpack or pocket! Also has a mirror which is perfect when you need to touch up a ponytail!
Girls with long hair are going to notice the hair sticking to the nape of their neck after the first hour in the park.
10. Cleansing Wipes
These pre-moistened, ultra-soft, cooling body wipes naturally deodorize, refresh and instantly cleanse away dirt, oil and sweat -- no rinsing required.
The heat can really take a toll on your skin. You will find yourself sweating throughout the day and one thing that really helps you cool off is cleansing wipes.
These body wipes are great for the sweaty parts that need a little extra attention!
11. Chafing Stick
This hard stick formula is intended to be used as a skin barrier to the effects of rubbing, chafing, pinching, and friction from shoes, protective gear, and other irritants.
When it gets hot & sticky outside, your skin pays the price. This means more skin irritation.
You can use this
If you’re like me, the very idea of packing for a vacation gives me anxiety. There is so much to remember and a packing list always makes it a bit easier.
Summer sure can be brutal in Florida. We hope this Disney World summer packing list will help you be more comfortable on your vacation!
