DisneyEssentialsPackingListForLandSeaVacationWhat to pack for Disney’s Park and Cruise Family Vacation Experience aka Land and Sea

My family did Disney’s Land and Sea experience as part of Disney’s Social Media Moms Celebration. We spent 2.5 days at Walt Disney World and then did a three-day cruise to the Bahamas on their Wonder ship. This packing list is based on what we used and what we had to buy because I forgot to pack it.

 * (p) = item for personal/day bag. This bag is essential for the day you board the ship and to have on the plane if you’re flying to Disney World. I use a backpack, but a tote can work well, too.

A few other things to note:

Disney cruises are family friendly, so other than one night of formal attire on some itineraries, dress is resort casual. I saw most people in capris, shorts, t-shirts, jeans, sundresses, etc.

There are laundry facilities on the ship, so if needed you can easily do one load of laundry about halfway through your trip. That’s why I encourage a laundry bag and color guard sheet. You can was one load of multiple colors without risk of color bleed. I love this travel hack almost everywhere we go.

Disney Cruise Line offers this VERY extensive list that breaks down according to ship and ports of call. It’s good to review, since it’ll be specific to your itinerary.
