What’s In My Suitcase? – DisneyWorld 2018 Packing Blog

Hello everyone! The wait is almost over, We’re going to DisneyWorld next week! Eek!!! It’s gone so quickly since I found out Lee was taking me for my birthday back in April and now the day is finally almost here! With all that in mind, I decided to do a little ‘what’s in my suitcase?’ post so you can see all the things I’m taking with me! Let’s start with the luggage I’ll be packing into shall we?…

my luggage

These are the suitcases I’ll be taking with me. We’re allowed 1 hold luggage suitcase up to 23kg each, 1 cabin bag/case each and 1 backpack each to take with us, which I thought was pretty generous!

Hold Luggage

This is my lovely nautical IT Luggage suitcase, It’s so pretty and classy and reminds me of the Newport Bay Club Hotel in Disneyland Paris. This will be my main suitcase that will go in the hold on the plane and is actually still half empty after packing everything (read on to see the finished result!)

Cabin Luggage

This is my cabin case, It was £40 (with a discount voucher) from Typo and is just the cutest! It has tiny little Mickey Mouse prints all over it and I just can’t wait to be rolling it through the airport, I LOVE it! This is currently completely empty which does allow me to bring lots of  goodies home with me!



This is the matching backpack for my suitcase, also from Typo (£20) and I don’t care if I look like a fool with a matching backpack and suitcase, I LOVE THEM! ❤️🎒

Packing Cubes

These little gems are from IKEA and make packing so much easier! You can basically fold or roll up all your clothes into the various little zip bags and it ensures your clothes stay exactly as you packed them and help you conserve space in your case. These are great for when you aren’t packing enough clothes to fill the suitcase completely and want to keep everything together (like I have!)




I’m not taking masses of clothes for our 2-week trip as I’m planning to use the laundry service so that I can conserve space in my case to bring lots of goodies back with me! Here are the clothes I have packed for my trip…



I’m taking 2 pairs of H&M blue denim shorts in light blue denim and a darker blue denim and 3 pairs of black shorts from Primark in 3 different styles. All of the tops I’ve packed in my case, I’ve already planned outfits for using these shorts interchangeably.

I’ll be taking this lovely red skirt from New Look with me which I have also planned outfits for using some of the tops below…


tops flatlay

I have chosen 10 of my newly purchased and a few of my old favourite Disney tops for my trip. The majority are Mickey and Minnie but I also have a Peter Pan one (top row second one in) a Donald Duck tee (centre) and my Star Wars t-shirt which I have worn to the release of the last few Star Wars movies at work! All from Primark.

I’ve always been quite self-conscious and never really had the confidence to wear dresses, however as I’m getting older, I’m starting to care less about what other people might think and just wear whatever I feel good in! I bought my Disney dresses (above) a couple of years ago from a store on eBay but have never had the confidence (or the nice weather for that matter) to wear them. I absolutely adore them and I can’t wait to finally be able to wear them on my upcoming trip to DisneyWorld! I have the ‘Tale As Old As Time’ Beauty And The Beast stained glass window dress and the ‘Arabian Nights’ Aladdin dress which has Abu, Genie, Aladdin, Jasmine, Jafar and the lamp all over it as well as pretty Arabian patterns. The blue floral cold shoulder dress I have packed is from ROMWE and the black floral cold shoulder dress is from Peacocks.

stitch nightshirt toy story pj's

I decided to go out and buy some brand new pyjamas specifically to take to DW with me. I tend to buy all my pyjamas from Primark as they are really cheap and they always have Disney PJ’s in store, I picked up this adorable Stitch nightdress for £5 and some super cool Toy Story pyjamas for only £8.



It’s not likely myself and Lee will do much swimming while we’re at DW but I want to be prepared 😉 just in case! These are 2 of my favourite swimsuits both from Primark (of course!) I love the colour of them both and the pattern of the navy one on the right! x





Now, onto the shoes! It is SO important that you pack the right shoes as the average walking distance people cover in just 1 day at Disneyworld is 10 miles 😱 You do not want your feet to be aching by the end of the first day, so I’ve packed my comfiest sandals (white and tan coloured pairs from SHEIN, Black pair from ASOS) and my Minnie Mouse shoes (Primark) to keep my feet in good shape as well as my Minnie Mouse flip flops just in case my feet do just need a squishier sole, and they were only 90p! Again, from Primark – Bargain!


bag hat purse

I’m taking my mini Mickey Ears Backpack as my parks bag and this really cute Mickey Mouse purse I got in the sale for £2.00! I usually only wear winter hats but I saw this lovely Mickey Mouse Cap and just had to get it! Bag £12, Purse £2, Cap £5 all from Primark.

Makeup & Toiletries



This is most of the toiletries and makeup I’ll be taking with me to DisneyWorld, in my favourite travel makeup bag:

I will of course also be taking a toothbrush, toothpaste, loofah etc but felt there was no need for a pic of these essentials! 😋

Useful Extras


These are the little extras I’ll be packing for myself and Lee, they include:

  • Super Cooling Towels – these little towels are actually quite clever. You wet them, ring them out and then they stay really cold for ages to keep you cool. Once dry, you can use them again and again – perfect for the Florida heat!
  • Rain Ponchos – cheap and cheerful, just in case we get caught in a hurricane downpour! I bought these from LIDL for 40p each.
  • Mini Fans – to keep us cool, and they match our respective water bottles!
  • Mosquito Bands – I was advised to get a few of these by a DW Facebook group I’m in, to keep the little bugs away!
  • Collapsible Water Bottles – Minnie Mouse for myself and Mickey Mouse for Lee! Just saves us having to queue to buy drinks, we can just fill these up from the water fountains!
  • Travel Adapters – so we can use our UK appliances in the US.


So, there we go! That’s everything that I will be taking with me on my trip, I will, of course, be taking my camera, FitBit (to count those steps!) iPod, a book, my passport and important documentation such as booking confirmations and travel insurance papers.

With that, I’ll see you on the other side with I’m sure, a much fuller suitcase!
