Visiting Walt Disney World can be just as hectic as it can be exciting, especially for Guests visiting from out of state. After all, not only do you have to coordinate the traveling plans, but you also have to coordinate Disney Resort hotel check-ins and Park Reservations.

In short, a visit to Walt Disney World is a lot of work! Especially when you take in how exhausting it is to explore the actual theme park.

From Magic Kingdom to Animal Kingdom, each Disney Park is big enough to guarantee a long day full of walking. Lots and lots of walking, and in the Florida sunshine and rain too, no less!

Luckily, there are lots of gadgets and gizmos to bring along to the Park, making it so much easier. But with so many different supplies, it can be easy to overlook some of them. So, here’s a list of some of the best things to bring to Walt Disney World!

Up first on the list is sunscreen!

Although you can apply sunscreen before leaving for the Parks, it’s important to reapply throughout the day. Anything from sweat to the occasional rain shower can wash it away, leaving you less protected from the sun afterward!

It’s also an excellent idea to bring a reusable water bottle. Throughout each Disney Park are water fountains for refilling water bottles, or you can just ask for a cup of water from many eateries.

Either way, bringing your own is sure to save you money and avoid dehydration while visiting.

Another essential that is often overlooked is a portable charger for your smartphone!

Times have changed, and Walt Disney World Resort requires Guests to use its My Disney Experience app all throughout the day. Not to mention, everyone goes on their phones while waiting in line! It’s best to bring a heavy duty one, or a couple of smaller ones to ensure nobody’s phone dies during a visit to the Parks.

Some supplies that deserve an honorable mention are hand sanitizer, ponchos, flip-flops, a spare pair of socks, and some ibuprofen! Also, it’s never a bad idea to wear a face mask while visiting. Even if the days of the COVID pandemic is still out there, nobody wants to spend the time after their Disney vacation recovering from any ailment, whether it’s COVID or the common cold.

There’s no day like a Disney day, but even days spent at the Disney Park can be unpredictable. But with these gadgets and gizmos, even an unpredictable Disney day can be as magical as ever.
