Disney Parks are some of my favorite places to visit. It's the happiest place on Earth after all!
Recently I spent a week in Orlando visiting all four Disney Parks.
Start here if you're researching for an upcoming Disney trip.
Every time I go to Walt Disney World I'm a little bit more prepared for the magic!
With all of the planning and money spent, you want to be sure you're making the most of your visit and staying as comfortable as possible along the way.
Here are the things you absolutely must-have for your next visit to the happiest place on Earth. Buy them now and stuff them into Christmas stockings for your Mickey loving friends and relatives!
Disney is serious about mask wearing. (Watch this week's video for more on Covid precautions at Disney). Masks must be worn all day and everywhere in the parks. You will want to bring a backup mask every single day.
I'd reluctantly packed a backup mask into my purse on our first day. We rode Splash Mountain and got soaked!
Did I feel like a genius when I had a dry mask to change into? I sure did! Eventually I got in the habit of swapping my mask after each meal, the little rotation feels oddly luxurious.
I loved this three pack of masks by Levis. They're cute, comfortable, and all three felt/fit exactly the same.
Hidden Magic Book
The historians, fact finders, and builders will love this one. Lamp posts, underground tunnels, scale of buildings, and overall Disney Magic is everywhere if you just know where to look.
I grabbed my copy at Barnes and Noble for just $8. It was published in 2008 and didn't include so many new parts of the ever expanding Disney parks. Get yourself a brand new book!
This makes for easy reading in your hotel room, on the plane, and for nights/mornings in between parks.
Hidden Mickey Guide
If you're ready to dive deep into the world of Disney's magical attention to detail I welcome you to the club of Hidden Mickeys!
This book is so detailed. It gives you a few ways of finding Hidden Mickeys: hints or flat out descriptions. You'll be spotting them in the parks, on the rides, in lines, restaurants, and more.
This book is great for big kids/teenagers to study in line. They'll keep busy and hopefully stop irritating their siblings!
You know who works the hardest at Walt Disney World? Your feet. They'll be screaming by the end of each day. These last two items will lessen that pain.
Yoga Toes are an old favorite of mine and they're most necessary at WDW.
I put them on every night when we got home! They provide so much relief for sore feet and even more if you lay on the floor with your legs up a wall.
Blisters Bee Gone Hydrating Balm is like a big chapstick for your feet.
Apply it to your trouble spots before the parks each day and/or bring the balm with you to the park. I'm a flip flops wearer so I just bring Blisters Bee Gone in my purse and apply it throughout the day (in a slow moving line, while taking a rest on a bench, etc).
Thanks for reading! Let me know if you get and love any of my must-have items.
