When I was a little girl, I was brought to Disney World when I was only 2 years old. Throughout my childhood my dad’s side of the family would go to Disney once a year together and those hold some of my fondest memories. My teen years had a few Disney trips here and there, and as an adult I have been 5-6 times. My love for Walt Disney World began with my grandmother and her passion around those family trips. Not every trip was perfect but the magic was there. The pixie dust settled into my pores and never left.
Now, looking back, I am so thankful to my parents and family for taking those trips and giving me those experiences. This Walt Disney World Family Vacation Planning and Packing tip guide will hopefully help in your planning for a family Disney Trip.
First, I have got to start with the big surprise. The girls had no idea they were about to be going to Disney World for the first time. We surprised them two days before we were leaving. The night before I set up a big area in our living room with new Disney suitcases for each daughter (their first suitcases), Disney pajamas, new Disney dresses, Disney car ride activities, Disney fans, and a few other things! The main item being their MagicBand+’s.
Watch all of this in happening in real time here! It brings me so much joy to surprise my girls with something and this has definitely been the biggest one so far.
Planning and Packing for Walt Disney World
For a family of 4, you wouldn’t think this would be such an overwhelming task, and I can’t imagine how crazy it would be if we had more for this first trip. Hopefully this post gives you inspiration and can ease the stress of shopping and planning. I have everything laid out from outfits for each family member for each park as well as extras I got for extended family (like my mom and grandma). Most are coordinating family of four outfit ideas for Disney World and some will be exact matching options!
