Disney Vacation Packing & Shopping List

PackingWe all know that getting ready for traveling – especially with kids – can be stressful. With that in mind, I’ve created an extensive shopping/packing list to help ease some of the worry of forgetting important items for your vacation. Feel free to copy and paste this into a document on your computer, or you can also download a .pdf file that has fill-in capability and is formatted for printing.
