5 Must-Have Essentials for Your Disney Vacation

Don’t pack for your next trip to Walt Disney World or Disneyland without these 5 must-have essentials for your Disney vacation. You’ll love these fun finds are from They’ll add a touch of Disney magic to your vacation essentials. 

Packing for a Disney vacation is a big deal in our family. While we’re not a matching t-shirt family, we do like to coordinate our outfits. Even the kids get in on the act. Last year, when we visited Toy Story Land for the first time, we made sure that our outfits were on point. 

Now that we’re gearing up for our summer Disney trip, I started to think about some of the essential items we might need. I try to buy as much as I can at home to save us from the inflated theme parks price tag. Cute and festive t-shirts and tanks are always at the top of our list. Bella and I are ears obsessed. We usually bring at least 5 and share. We also like to bring along some magical Disney inspired bling. Jackson is still at the age where he still wants to meet characters, so an autograph book is a must. Lastly, we’re going to need something to keep us cool in the August in Florida heat. 

Thankfully, has a majority of the essential items we’ll need for our Disney vacation. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite Disney vacation must-haves. As Jane affiliates, should you click on the links for the items, we receive a small commission. 

Essential 1: Disney T-Shirts

Disney themed t-shirts are always a must. Whether you are matchy-matchy t-shirt family, coordinated outfit family or you just want to be festive, these t’s and tanks are just what you need. Some of these would also be great for Disneybounding

Essential 1: Kids T-Shirts and Clothing

One of my favorite parts of taking my kids on vacation is dressing them up in cute outfits. Now that the days of princess dresses are behind us, fun shirts are the way to go. Jackson doesn’t always love wearing shirts with characters on it. But, I may be able to convince him to wear this awesome Buzz inspired t-shirt. Speaking of Toy Story, I also love these cute Toy Story themed dresses (I wish they came in my size). They would be perfect for a visit to Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Essential 2: Ears

#NowMoreThanEver it’s time to #GetYourEarsOn at Disney Parks. In fact those are their 2 current promotions for 2019. Mickey or Minnie Ears are an essential part of my Disney vacation wardrobe. Unfortunately, the headbands start to hurt after a while. This cute pigtail set lets you get your ears on while not giving you the inevitable headband headache.
