Packing for Walt Disney World in January with 3 Little Ones


disney_world Castle Water_Fotor_Collage_Fotor

We are getting ready for another Walt Disney World excursion and every time we go we have a different packing list, depending on the time of year, length of our stay and how many of us are going. This time my family of five will be traveling to the most magical place on earth, so that means three kids ages five, two and two. So, my packing list is definitely different from when my mom and I went this last fall and not to mention the weather will be slightly different.

Here is a peek into my packing list. I will start this list off just like I do all of my list and posts: Through many trips and trial and error we have found what works for us. These items may not work for you but, tweak them the way you see fit. So with that being said, here goes nothing!

There you have it, a peek into my packing list for our January Disney excursion. This list looks slightly different from other visits we have taken in other months to Walt Disney World. We love visiting Walt Disney World in January with our three littles and January will continue to be one of our favorite months to visit.
