Wondering what to pack for Disneyland? You’re in luck because I grew up in Los Angeles and went to Disney annually year growing up. While comfort might be your main concern but there’s one thing that’s more important and it may surprise you. Keep reading to find out what it is!

 


How to Pack for Disneyland


 

Reader Asks:

My family and I (husband and three young sons) are traveling to LA Disneyland, Lego Land San Diego in April-May.  I do not know what the weather is going to be like.  For most of the trip we will be going to Disneyland and Lego Land.  We may go out a couple of nights but the majority is casual.

 

I would greatly appreciate your help.  I’m not a good packer when it comes to holidays.  Your website has given be a lot of ideas and inspiration, thank you!

 

Sounds like a fun trip! My best suggestions to help you pack light and stylishly comfortable are:

  Jeans | Leggings | Shorts | Bermuda Shorts

 

 

Choose a pair of comfortable and tailored (1) jeans and (1) shorts (capris, bermudas, etc). and use a variety of bright and colorful tops to cheer up your outfits.

 

 

Woven Top | Aztec Top | Character Top | Beach Top

 

 

Choose classic styles in soft hues so your pictures will look good and memorable.

I’ve chosen a few packing lists that look like they have some good clothing selections for amusement parks. Stick to shirts + bottoms as they’re good for layering this time of year but summer dresses would be comfortable on hot days. I like the tops+bottoms found here: What to Pack for Hawaii Vacations or Classic Packing List 2013

Outfit

 

Since you’ll be going to several amusement parks, which means countless days on your feet, please take more than 1 pair of shoes! You may want to add some gel inserts into your shoes for added comfort. Your feet will thank you 🙂

For comfortable and stylish shoes it seems that many travelers recommend include Toms, Birkenstocks and the new Crocs styles.

Also, LA and Southern California temps can be very hot in the day and drop at night so make sure to take your hoodie or jacket and pack it away or store in a locker or backpack until night time. Bring layers!

 

You can also use a button up shirt or denim long sleeve to act as layers, shields from the sun, and as a light jacket if needed.

 

 

WEATHER

The weather here can be blazing hot for weeks and suddenly have a weekend of downpours and pack to blazing hot temperatures again – remember to watch the weather forecast a month to a weekend before your trip!

 

TRAVEL TIPS

There are several ways to get to Disneyland from LAX including shuttles, public transportation, taxis/Uber, and rental cars. Unless you’re planning to stay at Disneyland throughout your entire stay in Southern California, I’d recommend you book a rental car to make the most of your vacation.

I love renting a car with Alamo out of LAX airport, especially because they have a super easy self check-in and free shuttle at the airport. I can’t recommend them enough. Book here!
