What's In My Disney Park Bag?
Updated: Aug 19, 2020
Call me a Disney nerd, but I get SO excited to prepare and pack my Disney park bag. In fact, I love it so much that I do it about a week in advance, just to make sure it has all of the Disney World essentials in it! Here is my list of things I always pack, and I included a link (just click on the pictures) to each of them just in case you are interested in buying any of them.
My Park Bag:
My grandfather gave me this Disney backpack so many years ago, and I've used it for every single Disney trip since. It is still in mint condition, too! I don't know where a bag like this could be found, but let me know if you find it online somewhere!
There's nothing worse than being stuck in a long line for a ride and feeling like you're about to die of thirst. I always always keep a water bottle in my bag to keep myself hydrated throughout the day! Park tip: you can go to any kiosk or Quick Service desk and get a free cup of ice water to refill your water bottle. I'm linking one of my favorite water bottles below, but any water bottle with a good seal would do fine!
Charging pack for cell phone:
I have been using my atomi portable charger for a few years, so I can't find mine on Amazon, but linked is a comparable portable charger similar to mine. You can charge the pack at night in your hotel, then your charging pack will charge your cellphone right there in the parks! $38
Lightweight Rain Jacket:
I got this rain jacket as a gift, and I LOVE it. Rain beads up and falls right off of it, it's very lightweight, and it has a zipper pocket on the front to hold your phone and wallet. Plus, it can be compressed into such a small ball and fit right into your bag. $30
These are just some cute and sassy sunglasses that I love. I can't find the exact ones on Amazon, but I've linked a similar pair! $12
I like keeping wipes in my bag, as opposed to a bottle of Germ-X, because I find that Germ-X often explodes in my bag. I like having wipes handy for two things in Disney: sanitizing my hands before eating a meal or a snack and cleaning my hands after eating something that was messy (like a Dole Whip)!
If you're a hardcore Disney-goer like I am, you will probably experience some shoe discomfort while logging 16 hour days in the parks. I always pack some strong, fabric Band-Aids just in case I start to get blisters on my heels or any other parts of my feet. I have found that even my most comfortable shoes give me blisters at some point on Disney vacations.
Can you really consider yourself "packed" without a pair (or ten) of Mickey ears? I didn't think so. "Here are a few of my favorites" (I will be very proud of whoever can guess what Disney ride I am referencing)!
What do you pack in your Disney parks bag? Also, please comment your Disney ride guess, and I'll let you know if you guessed right!
