This weekend I’m heading to the happiest place on earth: Disney World! More specifically, I’m off to explore Epcot for the Flower and Garden Festival.
When it comes to packing for a day at the parks, I consider myself an expert. I was lucky enough to go do Disney World every other weekend with my family for most of my childhood. After years of watching my mom pack one bag for our family of six, I have come up with my own packing system to ensure I have everything I need for a day of Disney fun.
Here’s a peek at my Disney essentials:
Backpack: When it comes to spending hours at a Disney theme park, I’m team backpack all the way. This backpack from Kattee is the perfect Disney bag for a fellow blogger. The bottom compartment comes with a camera case and perfectly fits my Canon. The top compartment is big enough to fit everything you else you need, and the bag isn’t bulky at all, plus it’s super cute!
Camera: Whether you’re a professional photographer or strictly take pics on your phone, a camera at Disney is a must! There are so many incredible places to take photos, and you’ll want to remember every moment.
Ticket: Along with your phone, wallet and keys, you’re ticket is an obvious necessity. Keep it easily accessible because you’ll use it a lot at the parks.
Water and a snack: Disney food and drinks are expensive, there’s no doubt about that. While I do like to indulge on a Mickey pretzel and Dole Whip, I always pack my own water bottle and snack. It saves a little money and it’ll keep you from getting hangry.
Portable Charger: The last thing you want at Disney is a dead phone. I picked up this portable charger at Target for $5. It’s great to keep in my bag in case of emergencies.
Sunscreen: When you’re having so much fun at Disney, it’s hard to remember that you’re actually out in the middle of the hot Florida sun. I use baby sunscreen because #palelife but any kind will do.
Hand Sanitizer: When you have so many people (especially kids) from all over the world in one place, there’s bound to be some germs spreading around. Plus everyone is touching everything. Keep your hands clean people.
Ears: What’s a day at Disney without adorable ears? Get ones like mine here.
Backup Outfit: When it comes to exploring Disney, it’s comfort > style for me. But, if you want to take some pictures in a stylish outfit, or make sure that you’re dry after a trip on Splash Mountain, bring extra clothes just in case.
