Packing for an Infant Traveling to Disney World

January 9, 2014

I recently took my son to Disney World at the age of 7 months. I learned so much about all aspects of taking a child to Disney and would love to share some of my packing tips!

Packing for Disney Vacation
Getting there besides all the normal baby essentials in the diaper bag, I recommend the following:

  • Garbage bags- you can use these as an extra layer to place down on those germy changers in airports or on the road
  • Disposable bibs- easy and cheap, one less thing to clean
  • Baby food in plastic containers- easy and don’t have to worry about breakage
  • Disposable utensils- again easy
  • Nursing cover (if you nurse)
  • Binky- even if your child isn’t a huge binky fan the extra sucking eases the ear pain on a flight

 For the room:

  • Packnplay sheet- Disney will provide you with a packnplay and also a sheet, but I like to use my own
  • Lysol- spray down the packnplay and if you are me, everything else
  • Large blanket- you know your little one will want to explore, place it on the floor to keep them off the carpet
  • Bedtime books- reading a few familiar stories at night helps in a new place

At the parks:

  • Items from the “getting there” list
  • Reclining umbrella stroller- we had the chicco echo. You will want an easy to fold stroller for the buses, but will also want the recline option for naps at the park.
  • Toys that attach to stroller- this was a LIFESAVER! Keep your child entertained in the stroller or high chair without them throwing the toys on the ground/floor
  • Hat/sunscreen it is Florida!
  • Clothes that can layer- the air conditioning can get chilly and depending on the season you may go from shorts to a jacket in the same day
  • Autograph book with slots for pictures- even at 7 months my son loved the characters and even playing with the book at the character dinners
  • Camera- many use their phones, but this will kill your battery and you may miss something! I always bring a camera in addition to my phone

Disney Magic Cruise Ship

September 4, 2012


Okay, so I’d be a mouse-eared liar if I didn’t admit how excited Jenn and I were to tour the Disney Magic Cruise Ship this month. It’s in New York for the final itineraries to Canada and the New England Coasts and we were lucky enough to be invited to tour with other travel professionals. Knowing that the Magic is the number one rated ship in the world, and with the legendary “Disney Difference” in hand, we expected to be blown away by the ship from the moment we stepped onboard.

We were SO not disappointed!

First things first, which means we need to actually back up to BEFORE the ship first.  Jenn and I were kindly chauffered to the port in New York by my awesome brother (he’s a Jersey-ite, so he navigates the streets of Manhattan WAY better than these Pittsburgh girls would’ve). The Disney Magic cruise ship was sharing an entry with another cruise line, and when we first entered the terminal it was easy to spot where we wanted to be — there were white Mickey gloves waving all over the place to let travellers know which way to go. Seriously, for every one “other” employee, there were at least four or five Disney employees. In no time at all we were checked in for our cruise tour and seated in the well-organized, spacious lounge area. There were some great photo opps around for families to take advantage of while they were waiting to board on that day’s cruise, and spirits seemed high. The check-in line moved smoothly and soon we were surrounded by happy, friendly people who couldn’t wait to get onboard. Lucky for us, being tour visitors, we were first.

The main lobby, which is where everyone enters the ship, was lined with smiling ship employees who welcomed us all as we boarded. We had a FANTASTIC tour guide who told us that we were going to check out the staterooms first, then move on to dining and recreational facilities. So up we went to the higher decks to check out some truly amazing staterooms. Starting with the crown jewel of staterooms, the Roy O. Disney suite.  In one word? I can’t even try. Beautiful, luxurious, plush, opulent — I could go on but there’s so much more to talk about!
