Packing for Disneyland can easily become overwhelming – especially if you’ve never been. There’s always the challenge of what to bring, what to leave at home, and how not to overpack. To help you skip those overweight bag fees we’ve put together our recommended Packing For Disneyland list, as you make your way to Portofino Inn & Suites, Anaheim.
Clothing, Shoes & More
Anaheim is beautiful all year round with an average temperature of 67.5℉, we suggest bringing light and breathable clothing such as cotton pants and t-shirts for the day. If you plan to stay in the park after dusk you may consider bringing a light sweatshirt or windbreaker as it can get cooler in the evenings. If you want to pack light, choose a few versatile outfits and take advantage of our laundry facility on-site.
Though you may be tempted to wear flip-flops out of convenience, your best all-day footwear option when packing for Disneyland will be sneakers. Nothing is worse than sore feet an hour in to walking the park.
We know that packing with kids can be challenging so why not leave the strollers at home – one less thing to pack, right? Anaheim Portofino Inn & Suites conveniently offers single and double stroller rentals (pssst and they’re cheaper than the rentals at Disneyland) so when the kids get tired you can stroll them around.
Don’t forget your swimsuit! When it’s hot, you and the family can cool down at our outdoor pool and sundeck. And don’t worry about stuffing towels into your suitcase, they are complimentary at our pool!
While the weather is perfect in Anaheim the sun can be HOT! Be sure to pack at least 50 SPF sunscreen and reapply every couple hours throughout the day. It’s also a good idea to pack sunglasses and hats for the whole family.
When choosing a bag for Disneyland we highly recommend a backpack or something with two straps that’s comfortable to carry all day long. Here’s the extras that you should consider to bring with you out of convenience:
- Hand sanitizer or wet wipes
- A small first aid kit (with band aids and pain reliever)
- Tissue pack
- Refillable water bottle
- Camera and rechargeable battery
- Memory card for camera
- Smart phone and charger
If you forget a few things or want to purchase snacks when you arrive, remember Anaheim Portofino Inn & Suites has a gift shop fully stocked with drinks, snacks, and Disneyland souvenirs!
If you are thinking about packing the kid’s game system or board games – save yourself the space. We have a game room on-site where kids can play arcade games until their heart’s content. Rather the kid’s stay in but still be entertained? Visit our front desk and ask about our complimentary board games like Checkers, Yahtzee, UNO and more!
Last but not least don’t forget your mouse ears! And of course any other disney apparel and gear you’ll want to wear. If you’re coming to the park with children bring an autograph book and pen so they can collect all the park character’s signatures!
Now that you have your packing list you may be looking for hotels near Disneyland – the Anaheim Portofino Inn & Suites is the perfect hotel for your Disneyland vacation. We are conveniently located within walking distance to the park! Feel like saving the walking for once you’re in the park, our hotel offers fantastic amenities like shuttle service to and from our property. Another great feature as one of the hotels near Disneyland, we offer Kids Suites!
