Packing a Disney Park Bag can save time and money. Learn the 5 most forgotten items in a Disney Park bag to avoid wasting time or money. Some are able to be purchased at the parks, at Disney prices, while one is not even sold on Disney property.
1. External Phone Charger
Most guests bring their phones to the Disney Parks, in fact smartphones have replaced a traditional camera for many. Smartphones today are capable of capturing high quality photos and videos. Plus, the My Disney Experience App is a must download, keeping track of your dining and Fastpass+ reservations, ability to make new ones or cancel existing, keeps track of your dining credits (Disney Dining Plan) and more. With all this possible from your phone, an external phone charger is an important often forgotten item to pack for the parks. If you do find yourself at the parks with a low battery, visit a Fuelrod Portable Charger Kiosk.
It rains in Florida often, meaning it will most likely rain at some point during your Walt Disney World vacation. Besides attractions and stores there is little shelter outside to escape the rain (which often passes quickly). Therefore, pack a poncho for everyone in your party in your park bag. This will ensure that your group can keep going, even when it starts raining, pull out the ponchos and march on. When rain starts, many guests often leave the parks or they will be heading to a gift shop to pay Disney prices for an umbrella or poncho. Find ponchos at Dollar Stores and more before your vacation.
3. Ziploc Bags
On rides such as Splash Mountain or Kali River Rapids, be prepared to get wet. This includes your items you packed for the park as well. Bring Ziploc bags to keep important items and electronics dry while on attractions. Plus, they come in handy for other uses as well, such as storing snacks for later!
4. Bathing Suit
For the little ones, Disney World Parks offer opportunities to play in water at Epcot and Magic Kingdom. In Epcot, head to future world near Innovations to cool down. Also, in Fantasyland is the Casey Jr. Splash N Soak Station, located in Storybook Circus near the train station. This fun area offers water play with circus trains inspired from the movie, Dumbo.
Gum is not sold anywhere on Disney World property or Orlando International Airport (MCO). If you are a gum chewer, this is a must pack for your trip prior to leaving. Keep some in your park bag for long lines, or after meals. Gum chewing has also been effective to reduce ear pressure for air travel by many.
