15 Best Disney Countdowns for your Vacation!

A Disney countdown builds anticipation and excitement for the whole family! Make a DIY Countdown Calendar for your family’s next vacation.

Even if you don’t have a Disney World or Disneyland trip planned right now, you can still complete Mickey-themed crafts. In fact, crafting is a great way to experience Disney magic when you can’t be at the parks! So, grab the kids and choose your favorite Disney countdown to make at home.

If you’ve got a trip scheduled, get this craft done asap! Whether you’ll be staying on property (we love Pop Century and the Skyliner) or staying offsite (this resort is close to Disney and has great pools), counting down to your trip will amp up the excitement.

What is a Disney Countdown Calendar?

What is a vacation countdown? Like an Advent calendar or Christmas countdown, a vacation countdown provides an interactive way to count down the days to a special event.

Vacation countdowns can be themed to the beach, mountains, National Parks, big cities, or amusement parks… wherever your travel might take you! As a family of Disney fans, we have a DIY Disney countdown calendar that we’ve used leading up to our last 2 trips.
