The kids cannot contain their excitement for our trip home for the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. They want to pack right now. And by now I mean as soon as I told them! Okay okay, I want to pack now too and their excitement combine with mine makes it hard not to pack all the things!
As a planner you know I had to get organized for this amazing event.
Although this is my first DisneySMMC, I was invited to On The Road last year and I am very familiar with Walt Disney World. I hope I can be of some help to others who are new invitees as well by sharing this post.
Here it is. What to Pack for Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. Use it with What to Pack for Your Disney World Vacation and you will be all set to enjoy the most magical conference on Earth!
- Tablet or Laptop
- Business Cards
- Portable Battery charger
- Notepad, yes it is true I like to write down notes!
- Magic Bands; travel itinerary
Main Luggage/Checked Bag:
- Weather Appropriate Conference Clothes. Remember this is Florida, it's going to be warm! I am planning on some cute Disney-inspired outfits that are lightweight and breathable.
- Sneakers. High heels during the conference sounds like a cute idea, not so much when you are walking around the parks.
- Extra Business Cards
- Snacks for you and the family
- One of the perks of staying property is the Magical Express, or Mickey's Bus as my son calls it. The ME will take you to and from the Walt Disney World Resort.
- Backpack or Tote Bag. We are actually bringing both. A backpack for the parks and a tote bag for me to use during the conference.
- Download the My Disney Experience app to have all your reservations, park maps, hours, character info and more all at your fingertips.
- Photo Apps: I use Instagram, Phonto, Instacollage, and Show Your Disney Side a fun new app from Disney that the whole family will love using!
Jewelry, Mickey Ears, clothing, bags, shoes, random singing you name it just rock your DisneySide
I'm also sharing tips from other Disney Moms on what to pack for Walt Disney World.
Disney World with a Baby from Sara of Mom Endeavors. I have never been to Disney with a little little one. Both of mine were potty trained when we went. If you are traveling with a baby, Sara has the tips to help you make the most of your magical time at Walt Disney World!
Pack the Perfect Walt Disney World Backpack from Melissa of The Farm Girl Gabs. I love this list from Melissa, she has everything here we moms need for the park!
What to Pack for a Conference from Krystal of Brought to You By Mom. I mentioned bringing a notebook but forgot about my planner. Thanks Krystal for the reminder!
10 Essentials to Pack for Disney from Melissa of Jonah Bonah. Melissa mentions bringing along extra clothing for the kids. This is something I never thought to bring into the park, but after seeing little man have an accident, I won't go in without an extra set!
Have I left anything off my lists? Veteran attendees feel free to chime in!

If only I got an invite…that’s ok, actually. I don’t want to be tied down by having to attend a conference.
Love your Alex and Ani collection! 🙂 And a backpack is going to be a must this trip. I thought my little tote would be also okay a couple of months ago during Food Blog Forum. Drove me nuts in the park! Just better to have it all on the back. Great tips!
Krystal we made the mistake of using a tote bag (31 bag) in the parks and my hubs and I hated it by the end of the day. Backpacks are the way to go!
What a great invite. Wish I got an invite as well but maybe next year. Have a great time.
I am SO excited for you! These lists are so helpful, great post!
What about Sunblock… With all the warm weather clothing , you will need something to protect you from the Sun. I hope you have grand time on this trip
Have a great time. I’ve never been to Disney!
Wow thats super exciting. I wish i could say I was attending too but there is always next year. Hoping you bring all of us back lots of info

This sounds SUPER fun! I would love to go to this!
I would love to attend this. My magic bands are itching for another trip already.
Sounds like a fun trip to the Magic Kingdom! And you’ve got the packing down to a science!
This sounds like a fun conference. I bet everyone will have a ton of fun.
It’s easy to forget the essentials when you’re going to Disney World! This is going to be so fun!
What a great post. I wish I was invited, lol… I was crossing everything… but hopefully next year. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for these great tips. If I ever get to Disney I will keep these tips in mind.

Congrats! Sounds like fun! I hope to get to go next year. I cannot wait to read about your experience – have fun!
I would be so excited to be chosen for this trip! I have been dying to take my kids for 15 years now and we just never seem to have the money
Wish I was going! Enjoy the trip, great advice!
Congrats on being selected! I had never heard of this event until I saw it being talked about on Twitter. My days of going to Disney are in the past, but I know for families with young kids it is so exciting. Great tips here!
What a great post. I hope one day I will receive an invite.
My son and his girl went to Disney a few months ago. They got the Magic Bands. I forgot to ask them if they liked them!
Totally wish we were going! I would have loved this. We are passholders though so we go often 🙂
Hoping we can start planning a Disney trip soon! Thanks for the tips
Wendy @ ABCs and Garden Peas
Love the bracelets! I’m a huge fan but don’t have any Disney ones. Have a great time on your trip!
Great advice but maybe only relevant for those who are actually going. 🙂
