5.  Weather Items

We realize that we are cheating a little with this one, but pros always make sure they have items for the weather with them.  These items change throughout the year, but the fact that the pros are prepared for rain, sun, cold, etc. doesn’t change.

Pros always make sure that they have rain gear with them no matter what.  They know that even if the trusted weather app says no rain, there is always a chance of a pop-up storm.  Making sure you have an umbrella, or a raincoat/poncho can be a game-changer when it comes to saving your trip.

Pros are also prepared for the heat and humidity in Disney as it can be extremely difficult if you aren’t prepared for it. Pros will make sure they have tons of sunscreen and lip balm. Cooling towels and individual fans are also something you will see pros have with them during the heat of the day. Having a way to keep your body temperature down can be extremely helpful.

Finally, pros know that even Florida can get cold during the winter months. They make sure they have mittens, hats, and scarves packed for the evening hours so they can continue to enjoy the parks even after the sun goes down. These are all items that pros make sure they have with them to help be prepared for the weather at Walt Disney World.

Pros know that being prepared for the weather can prevent a day in a Disney Park from being miserable.  Having these items ready to go can make a huge difference.

4.  Back-Up Chargers

Another item that you won’t see those Disney pros travel without is a backup charger. Pros know how important access to the My Disney Experience app is while in Walt Disney World and how quickly it will drain their battery.

To prevent their cell phone from dying while in the parks, leaving them unable to capture that special moment, pros make sure to have a backup battery for their cell phone ready to go. There are so many choices on Amazon, so make sure to snag one before you head out. If you have teens with their phones, make sure they have a portable charger as well.

You can choose a variety of different portable chargers from large ones to small ones that easily slip into a crossbody bag.  Think about how long you are going to be at a Disney Park that day to determine which one you might need.  If you are going from rope drop to Park close, you will want to make sure you have that larger charger with you to get through the whole day.

3.  Water

Pros also know that water intake is super important at Walt Disney World. Because of this, they make sure they have a refillable water bottle with them at all times.

Disney has started to step up their game when it comes to refillable water stations making it super easy to keep your bottle filled up throughout your Park day. Remember, you can get free ice water from quick-service locations throughout the parks as well.

If you prefer to not refill your water bottle with Disney water, then consider having water delivered to your Walt Disney World Resort.  No matter what you prefer, make sure you have a plan to stay hydrated in the Disney Parks.

Hand Sanitizer

2.  Hand Sanitizer and Wipes

This probably seems like a no-brainer in today’s world, but pros always have and will always bring extra hand sanitizer and wipes with them to Walt Disney World. Having wipes for sticky fingers, tables and messes is super helpful.

Although Disney has hand sanitizer all over the Parks, it is nice to have some with you at all times. Pros have always been ones to have these two items with them and will continue to bring them in the future.

1. Snacks

We are well aware that there are tons of options for snacks at Walt Disney World, but pros know that hunger pains don’t always happen when it is convenient. Knowing this, pros make sure that they have snacks packed and ready to go.

It doesn’t matter if you are traveling with all little kids or all adults, having a quick snack on hand can save the day. Lines for food might be longer than you anticipated, or the line you are in might be taking longer than you thought. Making sure you have some snacks on hand will prevent some meltdowns and even save you some money.

There are a lot of things that you can bring with you to Walt Disney World, and we often do, but these are the top five items that you will see the Disney Pros bring each and every time they visit the Disney Parks.  They help keep them happy and safe allowing them to enjoy the magic all around them.  We hope this will help you as you pack your Disney Park bag.
