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
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!
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
If you have to sit on 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
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
Did you know that ice water is free at Disney counter service restaurants? We like to bring our own light weight, 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 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
Girls with long hair are going to notice the hair sticking to the nape of your neck after the first hour in the park.
I always pack extra hair ties and a small travel hair brush to pull up our hair if we misjudge the florida heat!
10. Cleansing Wipes
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 are cleansing wipes.
These body wipes are great for the sweaty parts that need a little extra attention!
11. Chafing Stick
When it gets hot & sticky outside, your skin pays the price. This means more skin irritation. You can use this Body Glide stick for your feet & for your thighs. It keeps all skin contact irritation free!
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 an be brutal in Florida. We hope this Disney World summer packing list will help you be more comfortable on your vacation!
