Essential Items to Take When Traveling to Disney with a Baby

Disney is the most magical place on earth, and an angry baby can spoil this magic within seconds. Therefore, going for a trip to Disney with a baby needs proper preparing to prevent things from getting ruined. A packing list of must-haves when traveling to Disney with a baby is outlined below. 


  • An Easily Collapsible and/or A Good Lightweight Stroller: An easily collapsible and/or an excellent lightweight stroller with a sunshade should be the first thing to prepare if you are traveling to Disney with a baby. A lot of people often say they prefer the backpack carriers, but a stroller also offers a unique level of mobile camp-based capabilities. The following should be considered when choosing a stroller: the stroller should be easily maneuverable, lightweight, collapsible, and it should have a manageable size. While some people prefer to rent strollers they’d use, others prefer using a stroller they are familiar with, and they bring one from home. It is preferable to bring a stroller from home because the cost of renting one at Disney could be as high as what would be used in purchasing a stroller. 
  • A Good Baby Wrap/Carrier: You might be wondering why you should bring a baby carrier when you already have a stroller.
