We’re taking the kids to Disneyland! This will be our first family trip to Disneyland and we are so excited! We’re actually going with more family – so it’ll be a big group and a lot of fun.
Plus, the Christmas decorations went up at Disney today and this will be the first time any of us have been there to see the holiday lights.
But, packing with kids is … WOW. And, since we are flying, we have to use that suitcase space judiciously.
That’s why this week’s edition of Saturday Shopping is sharing with you what I packed for my kids to wear in the park!
Even though it’s November, the weather is still going to be in the high 70s at the heat of the day, but mornings and evenings will be chilly. Both my kids run warm, and they are not going to want to wear heavy sweaters and jackets when it gets warmer, so layers are going to be key. I can barely get a jacket on my son, so he’s stuck with long-sleeves. #WhateverItTakes
The Gear I’m Taking:
I plan to use my Twelve Little Backpack Diaper Bag (which is on sale now for $138.99!!), and Twelve Little Nylon Diaper Clutch (on sale for $41.99 – 40% OFF!), which both have a water resistant, wipeable exterior and padded straps. Luckily, my guy has no issues carrying the baby bag, so we can trade back and forth. It has tons of pockets that I can cram all sorts of essentials inside.
I’ve had lots of diaper bags over the years, even popular name brand ones, and the Twelve Little bags have been my favorite. No more diaper bags in my future – these are the ones for me.
STROLLER OR VEER CRUISER:
As much as I love my Uppababy Gluxe Umbrella Stroller, I am thinking of leaving the stroller at home and just bringing the Veer Cruiser. It is extremely easy to push and steer, has enough sitting room for both kids, a tray for their drinks and snacks, and large tires that can take on any terrain with ease. It has a smooth ride and my kids even entertain each other while sitting in it.
I actually wrote an entire post about how much I love it and you can find it here. Has anyone taken a VEER to Disneyland? Give me the deets!
Sidenote: I am a true stroller connoisseur. I’ve personally bought 6 strollers over the years and have tested many more as a product reviewer. I will probably write a stroller post someday, but until then – I highly recommend anything by Uppababy and CitySelect.
Let’s be honest, shopping is the most fun part of packing and planning for a trip! Luckily, a couple of affordable stores have incredible Disney collections right now!

Let’s break down my kid’s outfits:
All finds from the Kohl’s & Costco collections. Some aren’t available, since I bought awhile back, but the new stuff is so cute, it makes me almost wish I had waited. #oops

Oh, and don’t forget the Disney pajamas!
A little something for the hubs and I for one day…
Just couldn’t resist joining in on the fun a little.
Give me all the hair bows:
A few for my beautiful nieces, too!
There you have it. And, my kids needed some more fall clothes anyway, so now they will just be rocking some Disney clothes when we’re back, too. #represent
Kids clothes are just so cute. I am just obsessed with shopping for them while they’ll still let me.
I would love to know your tips and tricks for a Disney trip with kids. I’ve already heard that MaxPass App is a must! Give me all the wisdom!

It sometimes feels strange to write about these lighthearted, exciting things when so many of our brothers and sisters are suffering due to wildfires and gun violence. May we all find a way to support them in the ways we are able – whether that be prayers, mobilized relief efforts, donations, etc.
Thanks for reading.
Have a fabulous day,
