Proper coverage is also important. You don’t want to get burned or sunburned so be sure to wear a hat, have UV protective sunglasses, and bring sunblock.

Lets go through a few more tips when it comes to packing for your Disneyland vacation:

  1. Travel light. Try not to overpack or under pack when you’re packing for your Disney vacation. It’s important to think about what you’ll need versus what is not needed for your Disneyland trip.
  2. Pack one bag for your party. If traveling light is not an option for you, then consider having each person in your party to only pack their essentials. 
  3. Prepare for the weather. California weather is quite unique. Most mornings have a nice chill to them, with the afternoon bringing in much warmer weather. The evenings are usually concluded with cooler weather which can be a shock of randomness for out-of-towners.
  4. Think about the type of essentials you’ll need. This is such a good point, especially if you are taking small children. It is a good idea to pack a small bag of essentials for each child. A small bag of toys, a book, and a change of clothes can help when you have frustrated kids that have may have a meltdown at the park.
  5. Pack a light sweater. You can keep the 90s vibe going by having a sweater with you that you can put on for the cooler parts of the day. When you’re not using it, you can just tie it around your waist.
  6. Start packing early. When planning a full out trip to Disneyland in California, it’s vital that you start packing early. The perfect hack is to put your suitcase in the center of your bedroom and gradually put the things on your Disney packing list inside of it.
