What to bring to Disney World Parks! You have the essentials packed, but what else do you need to bring? Don’t leave home without these five items.
Of course, you don't want to leave your MagicBands and wallets behind. But beyond the obvious items, here are my top 5 must-have items for a Disney vacation.
My husband Zack and I have been to Walt Disney World several times in the past few years and I'm itching for another trip out soon. I haven't visited Disneyland since I was a baby, but the same list applies to any theme park.
Disney Packing List
Whether you're visiting Disney for the first time or are a seasoned pro, these are the top items you don't want to leave at home.
I wrote an entire blog about why you should rock a fanny pack at Universal and Disney.
In summary, fanny packs or belt bags are more compact and lighter than lugging around a backpack or purse.
I love this one from Amazon! It's water resistant, holds a ton of stuff while being relatively small, and comes in a ton of colors.
Reusable Water Bottle
I have a funny story for you! The first time we visited Orlando to visit both Universal and Disney World, I used the same water bottle purchased at the airport.
I was shocked how many water fountains there were located throughout the parks, so I just kept refilling it throughout the week.
Disney has awesome food but sometimes lines can get long, you may have a hard time justifying $5 for popcorn, or you might want a midnight treat.
Whether you load up on homemade or store-bought snacks, bring a few of your favorites. I typically include mixed nuts and energy bars, plus jerky for my husband.
If you're visiting Orlando, be prepared for those spontaneous showers! These hooded ponchos will keep you dry.
They won't fit in a fanny pack, so you'll have to stash them in your stroller or backpack, if you choose to carry one.
Portable Phone Charger
With all the pictures you'll be snapping away and checking your phone for wait times, it's possible the battery on your phone will get drained before the end of the day.
Keep your phone charged with this awesome portable power bank! It allows for two devices to charge at once.
More things you might forget to bring
- Hand sanitizer
- Anti-chafing balm
- Travel size deodorant
- Mini sunscreen
