Taking a Disney vacation doesn’t have to mean spending hours packing, or money spent on overpriced clothes. Here are some tips for having a great time at Disney World even if you’re packing light.
Disney Vacation Basics
Whether you’re going to Orlando or California, Disney is going to be HOT. It’s important to pack light, breathable clothes. You’ll be doing lots of walking so comfort is also key.
Think lightweight shirts, comfortable denim or athletic shorts, and sundresses if that’s your thing. I would also opt for a sneaker over sandals, with that much walking I always get a blister in sandals no matter how comfy or well broken in they are. You don’t want a blister from your first day to ruin the rest of your trip!
Below are some staples and core outfit ideas that you can build your vacation wardrobe around:

Graphic Tees- H&M has great ones or
You can have a little bit more fun with your outfits on vacation, especially at Disney.
Both Target and H&M have some great Disney graphic tees right now. They have a more “vintage” look that makes them feel a little more grown up.
If you’re all about supporting small business you can find some great Disney inspired apparel on Etsy including some beautiful handmade ear headbands if you want something unique from the one’s sold at the parks.
Lounge fly always has super cute backpacks as part of their Disney collaboration but there are some more affordable options out there too like the pink Minnie backpack from Kohl’s
Do’s and Don’ts of park style
Dress in light layers
Carry a hands free bag

Forget a rain coat/poncho
Wear the new shoes you didn’t break in yet
Bring your designer bag
Disney vacations can get expensive but it truly is an experience like no other. There are so many great resources out there to help you save some money on your trip. I think the most important thing to remember is that you don’t need to do or buy everything they offer. Yes the extras are fun but is the Disney Starbucks really that much better than the normal one down the street from your hotel?
