It’s no secret that I frequent my happy place often. Not only are the trips planned, but impromptu ones can happen!
While I am not a parent, or even visit the mouse with kids (oops), I do have my ‘Disney backpack’ that has my essentials for a full day at Disney. As in… from morning to sun down! Packing a few, simple items makes the day easy, saves you a little $, and keeps you fresh & germ free! Here are a few items I keep on hand:
kleenex wet wipes: like a washcloth & hand sanitizer combined! They pack a punch for cleaning your hands, but they’re sensitive enough for your face after a hot day at the park. They’re easy to use on you, your friends, and that table you’re about to sit at for lunch. If you want to keep going back to Disney… you gotta keep the germs away! I will always welcome clean hands without the alcohol smell and without drying them out. Plus, they’re already friend and Porg approved.
water bottle: save you a little $$! At multiple locations in all of the parks, you can get a cup for water and refill throughout the day. Skip the soda & stay hydrated for the hot summer months.
sunscreen: even when the sun isn’t shining… Sadly, it’s always easy to spot those on vacation in the parks, poor things always look like lobsters! Remember your hat, and slather on my sunscreen before heading out.
magic band & passholder card: do you really need a reminder?! Why yes, yes you do — I almost forgot mine for my St Paddy’s Day weekend!
sweat towel: sounds silly, but so much better than dripping, or using your shirt. I love mine from lululemon; maybe TMI… but during the day, its my lovely little towel. But once the sun sets, hello Kleenex Wet Wipes to freshen up!
friends: photos in your favorite park become just a little more fun with a Porg. Just saying.
sunglasses: just a suggestion… don’t bring your best pair to Disney. You could drop them, plus you’re taking them on & off for rides — leave your good ones at home.
