15 Things You Need in Your Disney Park Bag

Going to a Disney Park is a full day adventure so make sure you prep your Disney park bag with all the essentials! Consequently, I purchased many of these items off Amazon before my trip which saved a lot of money. I’ll highlight the products that worked well for me!! 

1. Backpack 

You do tons of walking around the parks so I always find it easier to have a backpack versus a purse. It also gives you more room for extra stuff like sweatshirts or carrying around purchases you made. I personally have a Packable Backpack   and it’s one of my favorite Amazon purchases. It folds up to the size of a notecard, it’s waterproof, and it’s amazing for travel! Also check out this adorable Minnie backpack. I have one of these too for day I want to be cute! 


2. Portable Phone Charger  

You will 100% need this! I have this  Portable Phone Charger and love it because it has 2 USB ports for charging more than one device at a time! I will leave the charger in the backpack and let both my fiance and my phones charge at the same time! 

3. Extra Phone Cables 

I always make sure to leave phone cords in my park bag! It’s too hard to move your phone cord from your hotel room to your park bag everyday. Make sure you bring extras. I would recommend bringing a 10 ft phone cord too! 

4. Ponchos 

Rain ponchos are always a good idea! It rains frequently in Florida so I always have ponchos in my bag. Disney charges more than $10 for a single poncho.  I order a bulk pack every trip and back them in my suitcase so I don’t have to pay Disney poncho prices! 

5. First Aid Kit 

A First Aid Kit will have important things like band-aids, pain killers, and everything you need for aches and pains. Many people forget how much walking you will do, so I always keep blister relief in my bag too!  

6. Wipes and Sanitizer

I guarantee you will get sticky from all the Disney snacks so make sure you bring Baby Wipes ! In the post COVID world, you can never have enough Hand Sanitizer

7. Sunglasses 

It’s always sunny in Florida, so make sure to bring some cute glasses! 

7. Light Jacket 

The mornings and evenings can often be cool so if you’re someone who is typically cold, I would keep an extra layer in your bag. All the buildings and restaurants have the A/C blowing very high so you may want a jacket inside too. 

8. Sunscreen

The Disney Parks and Resorts have Sunscreen for purchase but it’s very expensive. Make sure to stock up on sunscreen prior to your vacation! 

10. Snacks

Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of amazing snacks at Disney! But I always try to bring some of my own snacks to save some money or if your hungry at an inopportune time, like in line! 

11. Portable Fan 

The Florida sun can get really hot! Depending on when you go, you may want a Handheld Fan or fan/water mister. Your kids will love this! In Disney fashion, they do sell these but like everything else be prepared to pay a premium. 

12. Smart Watch

When I visit Disney, I usually walk more than 20,000 steps a day so if you are a fitness junkie or like to track your steps, make sure you bring your Apple Watch or Fitbit

13. Autograph Book 

If you have little ones, make sure you bring a Disney autograph book. Your kids will cherish these books when they look back at their Disney memories. I look back at my autograph books from time to time! 

14. Gum 

You cannot buy Gum at Disney Parks so make sure to stock up before your vacation! 

15. Games for line

Make sure to bring stuff to keep you busy in line. For kids, this is often a cell phone or tablet. I also really recommend the Heads Up game. It’s a charades type game that you will see others playing in line!

There are lots of things that you can bring in your Disney Park bag so take these tips and make them work for your family. The more prepared you are for your Disney vacation, the better your vacation will be.

  1. This is a great list! #11 and #15 are ones I hadn’t thought of before! When we were planning our latest trip (which unfortunately got canceled due to COVID), I was also going to pack some glo-stick bracelets to make it a little easier to keep track of my active daughter after dark!

  2. Snacks is an excellent suggestion. The food in the park is so expensive it would be good to supplement so that you don’t have to buy so much. Save some $$ for the Good Stuff 🙂

  3. I didn’t even know portable chargers existed on my first mistake. The phone was dead in like an hour. People don’t realize how quickly the app drains your battery. Great tips!
