Y’all.. Disney is less than 48 hours away!!! I am honestly so fortunate to be traveling to Walt Disney World for the second time this year, and cannot believe that I’ll see it with all of the Christmas decorations. Get ready for a plethora of pictures… I might go a bit overboard but I’ll do my best to rein it in.
Another difference between my previous trips and this upcoming one is that all of my prior Disney trips were in spring/summer. That being said, I am totally looking forward to going to Florida with a forecast that won’t potentially make me melt #justcallmeOlaf. However, it is odd having to think about packing layers for a flight to Orlando. The forecast calls for temps from 55 to 78 degrees, so I really did my best to pack options! Below is a breakdown of what’s in my suitcase for a November Disney trip!
The key for packing tops this round was to layer. I have packed a few Disney inspired tees, as well as a few long sleeves for the evening. My favorite of the Disney tees in my suitcase is definitely my castle tee from The Home T. Y’all know I love how soft my Connecticut home tee is, so I am excited to wear the castle version in the parks (I also want to note that the Home T donates 10% of it’s profit to multiple sclerosis, nothing better than supporting a company that gives back!). I am also bringing a light rain jacket for the random Florida showers. Since this trip is only four days, I am planning on bringing a hoodie and wearing my Patagonia on the plane. The temps in CT are currently pretty cold, so that will be much needed when heading to the airport in the wee hours of the morning. This may not be the case where you live, but I will be able to avoid packing bulky layers by wearing a few of them while traveling!
My rule for bottoms in Disney is that if it’s not comfortable, I don’t dare pack it. With the average steps for a day in the parks ranging between 10,000 and 30,000 steps, you are going to regret rocking a new pair of jeans. I opted for a few pairs of leggings, a pair of black jeans, and a pair of soft, worn in jeans for this trip.
By the same token, don’t bring shoes that aren’t broken in either! All that walking can cause even the most worn-in shoes to lead to blisters, so be sure that you bring comfortable and supportive footwear for your Disney trip. My black hi-tops are relatively new; I can’t wait to style them for the parks!
Ears first, of course! I currently have three pairs, the newest being these adorable leather ones from Gingham and Dots! I seriously cannot wait to style them! Other necessities include my Pandora bracelet (which has a few cute Disney charms, I’ll link below!), a few other bracelets, and a pair of earrings for the trip. I try to keep it minimal because there’s little time to be fussing over accessories while running around the parks! Then of course the usual things, toiletries, sunglasses, socks, etc. A few items that I WILL NOT travel without include my iPod (yes, I’m old school), headphones (gold, of course), a portable charger, and dramamine (cue the motion sickness, I’m prepared).
Have you been to Walt Disney World recently? Or are you planning an upcoming trip?! I’d love to hear about any and all Disney trips in the comments! For those of you that have never gone in the cooler months, I hope this little guide helped! Be sure to follow along on Instagram all week to keep up with the magic. And I, of course, will have a few posts up from the trip, so be sure to check back for those!
