What to Pack Disney World in April

Knowing what to pack for a trip to Walt Disney World in April is important. You don’t want to be unprepared and end up having to use your vacation budget on things that could easily have been brought from home with a little planning. Want to know how you can pack everything you need yet save money and room in your suitcase? Make sure you check out my post on How Amazon Can Save You Money at Disney and Disney Park Bag Essentials! Here are a few things you might want to consider packing if you’ll be traveling to Walt Disney World in April.

Pack an Umbrella, Poncho and Stroller Protection

The weather at Walt Disney World can be unpredictable. Rain storms can form and dissipate quickly. Be prepared with a small travel umbrella or a disposable rain poncho. A poncho can also come in handy to wear on rides like Splash Mountain or Kali River Rapids to keep your clothes dry. If you are taking a stroller with you to Disney World, I recommend bringing a plastic shower curtain liner from the dollar store to cover your stroller while on rides and clothes pins to secure it. I did this on our last vacation and it was a life saver!

Pack Sun Protection

The Florida sun can be brutal, even in the Spring months. Make sure that you are ready for the UV rays by packing some sunblock and a hat. Also make sure your kids are protected too. Nothing ruins a magical vacation like a sunburn!

Pack a Travel Blanket

A travel blanket is also a good idea to bring along to Walt Disney World in March. I used it to cover my son’s stroller while napping. A travel blanket can also be great to sit on while watching a parade or fireworks show!

Pack for both Warm and Cool Weather

The mornings and evenings at Walt Disney World in April can be a little cool, but the days will be very warm. This makes packing clothing for Disney World in April a little tricky. Pack at least one pair of jeans or long pants, to stay warm and comfortable during the cooler temperatures. You will definitely want to wear them if the forecast calls for a rainy day. Wear a short-sleeved top and shorts during the day and bring a lightweight jacket or sweater that can be kept in a backpack or worn around your waist during the day. Here are some cute options:
