Do you arrive at the parks all prepared for the day? Here are 10 Things I Pack in My Disney Park Bag .
- Sunblock. I don’t know how, but the Florida sun seems hotter at WDW than anywhere else. I always pack my sunblock.
- Poncho. I don’t carry my poncho much in the winter, but from April until November Florida tends to get liquid sunshine everyday in the afternoon. Disney charges an arm and a leg for a poncho, so I either buy one from Dollar General ($1.25) or use my old Disney poncho.
- Wipes. I carry wipes and I don’t even have a baby. I found out I like to clean off my odd sunblock and sweat before reapplying it. It also cools me down a little bit. Plus, you never know if you need a wipe to clean off a table or a mess. They come in very handy.
- Phone charger and an extra camera batteries. Disney has a limited number of phone charging stations you can use, so having your own phone charger works out great. Many outlets are available and it can also give you a few moments of downtime.
- Reusable water bottle. I know some people don’t like drinking from the water fountain, but the taste of the water does not bother me. I also use the free water from counter service locations to fill up my water bottle as well. Right now my favorite water bottle I got from the Dollar Tree. You can fold it up when you are done and you can clip it your your lanyard or belt loop.
- Small First Aid Bag. You know those free bags you get from some beauty samples? I use one of those bag and toss in a few bandaids, some Moleskin , and some antibacterial gel. Perfect for those minor bumps, bruises, and blisters where you don’t want to bother with going to the first aid station.
- Snack Container. I save the containers from Lay’s Stax and reuse them for snacks of my choosing. They are a bit more durable than Pringles containers and don’t get squished as easily as foods in baggies. I also like that if I choose I can throw it away or lose it unlike a tupperware container which I paid for.
- Trading Pins. I used to carry a separate bag of pins, you know one of those nice binders they sell at the parks. Well, since getting robbed I am especially careful with my pins. I take 2 more of the freebie makeup bags and one is for pins I want to trade, and one is for pins I am keeping or researching to find out if they are scrappers.
- Ziploc Bags. Great to put electronics in if it rains or if you are going on a wet ride. You just never know when a baggy will come in handy!
- Extra socks. I keep an extra pair of socks and change them midday. It is nice to get off my sweaty socks and put on some fresh ones.
