Last Minute Items To Pack For Disney
1. Stroller Fans – When we did Disney Last June, these fans were a life-saver. The Stroller fans were great for on the go nap times & are comprised of a foam material so little fingers won’t get hurt.(Please Visit my Disclaimer) Dream Baby Stroller Fan
2. Misting Fans – These handheld misting fans were great for the Hot days and cooled us off nicely. They were east to carry with us in lines as well.O2Cool Misting Fan
3. Autograph Books – If you wait to get to the park to purchase an autograph book it can be pricey. We bought this particular autograph book before our trip. (Hint the same one is in the parks). Disney Princess Autograph Album & Pens
4. Poncho’s – OK the first time we went to Disney we made the mistake of not packing ponchos and boy were they expensive to buy in the park. The next time I made sure to pack them. Also, I would order an extra to cover your stroller with, a lot of the stroller parking is an uncovered area. Rain Poncho
5. Disney Lanyards – We purchased these before our trip, so that our children could pick out the pins when we got to the park. They started collecting the pins, we haven’t worked up to pin trading yet. Mickey & Minnie Lanyards
6. Frogg Towels – These are great for cooling-off on those HOT park days. Mini Frogg Towels
7. Polar & or Brita Water Bottles – Water bottles in the park get pricey. But the park does give FREE water cups you have to ask. But on busy park days this could mean wasting time in long food lines. Anytime we stopped for food we would fill up our water bottles with ice and then brought along water bottles that we had brought with us to fill up our insulated water bottles to have cold water. Polar Water Bottles
8. Bubbles & Glow Bracelets/ Necklaces –
I am all about souvenirs & on our first trip my mom purchased “M” a little mermaid bubble blower which was a little over $20 (and ended up breaking once we got home). As, to not be tempted by all the bubble & glowing souvenirs we bring our own. Bubbles are a great distraction while waiting for parades & fire work shows.
9. Sunscreen – I recommend lotion or spray, face stick, & lip sunscreen. The Florida sun is hot and you can burn.
10. Travel Laundry soap & dryer sheets – Most of the Disney Resorts have washers & dryers, buying the soap there can be expensive, so I would recommend bringing along your own laundry items.
11. Bottle Brushes & Travel Dish Soap –This is the perfect thing to have if you are bringing your own water bottles and if you are on the Disney Dinning Plan for the Refillable Souvenir Cups (Which Disney Dinning Plan is right for you?). Bottle Brushes
12. Ziploc bags – I bring both the gallon size and snack size. Since we drive to Disney I tend to fill the car with non-perishable groceries and having Ziploc snack bags makes it super easy to take snacks in the park with us. I also pack empty ones in our snack bag to make food easier for dividing up (Worther’s caramel popcorn from Epcot is a perfect example).
13. First Aid Kit – I made up my own using a cosmetic bag leftover from Free gifts with purchases, but in it I carry the essentials, (neosporin/owie oil, band aids, medicine, and cortisone (bug bites) and a tide pen(in case of stains)and Breathe Again Oil. ( My Favorite Oils)
14. Hats – Our whole family has hats for Disney, these we actually bought on our first trip and have Loved them, but they are perfect for keeping the sun out of your eyes and cooler.
