What I'm Packing for my DCP

What I'm Packing for my DCP

My Complete DCP Packing List

Packing for 5 months in Disney when flying is a bit stressful! I hate overpacking, but I hate forgetting things too! I also really like minimalism so I shooting to live with the least amount of things possible to free up my space and budget for fun adventures! I’m not huge on “things” because I’d rather spend money on experiences during the program! I’m taking left over bathroom products until I use them up, then I’ll buy more when needed. I’ll be updating this list as I adjust it and will finalize it after I move in on August 6th!


Stay tuned for a video on how to pack your ENTIRE wardrobe for the program in a carry on! Be sure to follow my Disney adventures on Instagram! @makaylas_magical_life If you're on the Fall 2018 program let's be friends!

What I’m ordering from Amazon after I move in:


Other things I had to do to plan/prepare that aren’t exactly packing related:

  • Renew license (I turn 21 on the program!)

  • Order more contacts (I’ll run out on the program)

  • Change subscription address as soon as I have my apartment address

  • I’m getting a Brazilian blowout on my hair the week before I leave to help with humidity! I have naturally curly/wavy hair and this allows me to take a shower, brush my hair, and have it go straight! MIRACLE worker! Seriously the best investment in my hair!

  • Flight info and find a buddy to Uber to housing with! (Split the bill and make a new friend! PS. If you're arrival date is 8/6 and want in our group message just find me on Facebook!)
