A Disney Vacation is like no other, so why would I think packing for one would be any different?
We (hopefully) remember to bring clothes, toiletries, and electronics.
But what about those things that we bring to Disney that we wouldn’t even think of bringing on other vacations?
5 Items I Always Pack That No One Thinks Of Bringing to Walt Disney World
The Quick Service locations at the Resorts do have little sinks to rinse out your Refillable Mugs. But, that’s as clean as they’re going to get, since there’s no soap nearby.
After a day of refilling these bad boys, our mugs need a thorough cleaning.
So, for this reason, I always bring a travel size container with some dish soap, so I can start each day with a clean cup.
You’d be surprised how much I use Ziplock Bags while at Disney.
Whether we’re bringing snacks into the parks, saving snacks for later, or using them as phone protection on wet rides, I always manage to use them somehow.
I once read that the most popular item that people leave in their hotel room is the phone charger.
It makes sense. They’re easy to overlook. And with families have multiple electronics that need charging, it’s easy to forget something.
This is why I bring a small Power Strip with me.
This way, I can plug in my phone, ipad, external battery for my phone, and my camera in one place. It’s harder to forget chargers when everything is located in one place.
If you’re a Disney regular, this may be second nature to you.
But, Moleskins are something that most Guests don’t even think to bring, especially first-time Disney travelers.
I wear the same shoes to Disney that I do to take my dog out for a walk, go to the zoo, park, or even other amusement parks. But, for whatever reason, Disney is the only place that gives me sores on my feet.
But, I’ve learned from my past mistakes. Now, if I suspect something is coming on, I cover it before it has a chance to get really painful because there is no way I’m going to slow down at Disney.
I’ve learned my lesson.
No one thinks they will be doing laundry on their Disney vacation (at least I don’t).
But, what happens when your child spills something on their clothes, or if they’re like my child, runs out of socks mid-week?
Now, I make sure I’m prepared. Disney does sell laundry soap and fabric softener in their laundry facilities. But, as you can imagine, you can wash your clothes for cheaper if you bring some laundry soap from home.
