Toddler Travel: Disney World Travel Tips

Travel Tips to Disney World With Toddlers

DESCRIPTION Toddler Travel Tips Things To Bring

Make Your Day Easier


thermos An insulated thermos packed with ice and fill with water. Amazingly, there were still a few cubes after six hours in the park in over 100 degree weather. Refrigerate the container overnight, fill with fresh ice and water in the morning and bring a couple extra water bottles to refill as needed.

Trick to keeping it cooler longer: Cup holders are great but if it is in the summer, the direct heat will heat up your thermos much faster. We put ours in the tote bag and hung it from the stroller handles. We are fans of the thermos brand for it's leakproof design and replaceable straws.

Tip: Buy bottled water ahead of time. Disney does let you bring it in the park.
Fan Mister

We especially liked the small sized ones that I could just clip onto my bag when not in use and helped keep the girls occupied while standing in line.

Keeping Clean

Hand Sanitizers and wipes are great for quick clean ups before and after eating.

Potty Toppers

Disney does a great job keeping facilities clean but we liked using these as well.

Mark Your Stroller

If you park in a non designated stroller area or it is very busy, Disney employees will rearrange or move your stroller to keep things organized. The bright bandanna was easy to see. We even brought a simple lock with coiled chain to keep them together when it was peak hour.

I have heard that some people will take mistakenly (or not) someone's Disney stroller, and although it is easy to replace it is an unnecessary hassle so marking it with something may help eliminate that from occurring.

Autograph Book and Thick Pen

Don't forget to bring an autograph book and a thick pen like a Sharpie for character signatures. Bring a thick pen since it will be easier for the character to hold. You can find these at many stores. We found a cute Disney one at a craft store. They do have them at Disney World, however like everything else there is a little extra cost to purchase it here.
Sunscreen and Insect Repellent travel containers

A must have with little ones but here is a great way to carry it without taking up much space. I found these containers at The Container Store but should be relatively easy to find a similar one at any drug store or travel store.

SLR Cameras neoprene camera case

If you absolutely need to bring a large me. This was a great way to transport it during our trips to the different theme parks. It is a neoprene case with three ways to snap on to your camera. While it doesn't provide total protection in the event it is dropped, it does keep dust and dirt out of it and can be carefully put into a bag. Thus eliminating a second bag.
Other Toddler Travel Items to Bring

  • Hats or Visors
