Packing list for a Disneyland Paris trip


Spread the love

Packing for a holiday is stressful, I always worry that I have forgotten something. Hopefully this list will be helpful to you. If you have any other ideas, that I haven’t thought of, I would love to hear them.

Obviously the amount you can pack depends on how you are travelling. Travelling by car is ideal as you can take as much as you can fit in your boot. Eurostar are very lenient on the amount you can take. I have never had the amount of bags checked or any bags weighed on Eurostar but you do need to be able to carry it all onto the train and fit it in the luggage racks. When flying you need to check the luggage allowance with the individual airline.

Packing List

  • Passports
  • EHIC cards
  • Travel insurance documents
  • Booking paperwork/tickets
  • Money/pre-paid travel money card
  • Prescription medication
  • Phone/camera/iPad
  • Travel adaptor plug
  • Chargers and portable power bank
  • Small extension lead (for charging lots of items as not many plugs in rooms)
  • Toiletries
  • Hairbrush
  • Raincoat/poncho
  • Comfortable shoes
  • Comfortable clothes/layers
  • Tea, coffee, chocolate sachets and spoon (request kettle from reception)
  • Lots of snacks

For children

  • Pushchair (even if child doesn’t use one anymore at home – there is a lot of walking!)
  • Bike lock (for pushchairs left outside attractions)
  • Clothes with layers for different weather
  • Costumes (lots of extra attention if dressed up)
  • Nappies and nappy sacks
  • Wipes
  • Sterilising bags
  • Bottles and milk (ready made cartons are good)
  • Baby food pouches
  • Activities and toys for travelling
  • Plastic cutlery (restaurant only have adult size)
  • Drink bottles and concentrated squeezy juice

There are a very limited amount of baby items for sale in the babycare centres in the parks but there is little choice and they are very expensive.

First Aid

There is no pharmacy on site so I always take a small amount of basic first aid items.

  • Paracetamol
  • Indigestion remedies
  • Plasters (especially for blisters)
  • Cough medicine
  • Antihistamine
  • Calpol
  • Travel sickness tablets
  • Sun tan lotion

There is a pharmacy at Val D’Europe shopping mall, which is one stop on the train from Disneyland. There is also a first aid department in the Disney Village if needed.There is also a large supermarket there if you would prefer to buy your snacks, drinks, baby items from there.For drinks and snacks there is a shop in the train station and also a shop in the Esso garage outside the Santa Fe Hotel.Lastly make sure you leave room for all your souvenirs and don’t forget your Mickey ears!
