Just a few days ago we announced that we are taking our first family trip to Disney World in a few weeks. The kids are super excited (and so are the parents). We have been preparing for this trip for over two years so we are a very ready. To prepare for this trip we’ve bought a few things from Amazon that should help make our trip a little bit easier, cheaper and fun. Disney World is super expensive so if there are any ways to save money we are all in. Some of the times we’ve bought will help us save money at Disney while others will just make us a little more comfortable.
We will be staying in a Disney World resort for a week, all 6 of us in one hotel room. A lot of the things we bought are to keep our hotel room more organized, useful and comfortable. We also bought a lot of things to combat the heat. Even though we are going in late September it’s still going to hot. Living in the south I know just how hot, humid and miserable it will be so I’m doing everything possible to keep us comfortable.
T-shirts – AI bought an affordable Disney themed shirt for each of the kids to surprise them when we get to Disney World. Now that shirt will be associated with our Disney trip but without the Disney prices.
Bike Shorts – I have a few pairs of bike shorts that are great to wear with oversized Disney shirts. They also prevent chafing.
Bermuda Shorts – These are great elastic waist shorts, super comfortable and easy to wear with anything.
Slip Shorts – I highly recommend wearing these under skirts or dresses to prevent chafing.
Shoes – Brooks are my favorite, they offer great support based on how you walk.
For the Airplane
Suitcases – We bought 3 of these Samsonite Freeform 24″ Spinner suitcases.
GoWraps – Brightly colored luggage handle wraps.
Headphones – Each of our kids will bring a pair of kid sized headphones to use with their iPad.
Kids Carry On Bags – We bought kid size day packs for our kids to use as carry-on bags.
Pop-Its – Kids are really into these fidget toys and having been asking for them for months.
Imagine Ink – Mess free activity for the plane
iPads – Each of our kids will bring their iPad
For the Hotel Room
Travel Fan – Our family is used to sleeping with a fan on at night so we have a small travel fan we will use in our hotel room.
Room Spray – 6 people in 1 room, room spray is a must
Hanging Closet Organizer – We have 6 people staying together in one hotel room and storage is limited so this is an easy way to keep our clothes folded and organized.
Clothes Pins – I’m throwing a few clothes pins in our bag just in case we need to keep curtains clothes or hang up wet clothes.
Tote Bag – We are bringing a few small tote bags ideal for carrying our stuff from the room to the pool and also an easily way to carry home our souvenirs.
Goggles – Our hotel has a pool so we are bringing goggles for our kids because they typically wear them while swimming.
Power Strip – We have a lot of electronics that need to be charged it’s nice to be able to set up a charging location in your room located around 1 central outlet.
Make-up Bag – I like this bag because I can easily find everything I need without digging through it and there are little dividers and pockets to keep all of my makeup sorted.
For the Park
Portable Fan – We are renting a stroller so this portable fan will keep our little one cool while they are in the stroller.
Backpack – I thought this backpack was adorable and it will be our park bag every day.
Cooling Towels – Florida is hot and anything we can bring to keep us cool, like cooling towels are a must.
Carabiner – We will attach this to our stroller so we can easily store shopping bags or other items right on the side of the stroller.
Reusable Straws – Disney uses paper straws which fall apart fairly easily
Water Bottles – Biuying bottled water in Disney is crazy expensive, we are bringing a few water bottles that we can fill up at fill stations located around the park.
Ponchos – It regularly rains in Florida and you never know when you might need a ponch or umbrella.
Anti-Chafing – It’s hot and humid which is an ideal for chafing and we want to prefect chafing at all costs.
