Packing Cubes

One of our favorite items to help us stay organzied is packing cubes. These allow us to pack outfits together in one spot and keep everyone’s clothes separate. When arriving at our Walt Disney World Resort hotel, we love being able ot pull out the cubes and place them into the draws.

We can also use the cubes to help repack on the way home. We are keeping dirty clothes separate from everything else.

It did take us a few trips to navigate how we could best use packing cubes, but now that we have a plan, we can’t travel without them.

Luggage Scale

This might seem silly to many, but to overpackers having a luggage scale is a life saver. I was sick of being stressed when checking luggage. Always worried if I would be over and then the stress of trying to repack items to stay under weight. To help illiminate that stress, I purchase a cheap luggage scale from Amazon. I use this to help weight our suitcase before heading to the airport. By having a luggage scale, I can skip the stress and surprise when arriving at the airport.

This little gadget has saved me numerous times, and I wish I had purchased it earlier.

apple airtags

Apple Airtags or Similiar

This is a newer purchase that I am super excited about. I try hard during my trips to carry on, but this isn’t always possible. Because of this, I spend so much time stressing about where my luggage is. Welcome to the party Apple AirTags.

These little tags go into your luggage and allow you to track where it is via your phone. If you don’t have an iPhone (guilty), there are other options for androids. Do some research to figure out what will work the best for you. With more extensive trips coming up, these tags will save me a lot of stress.

cloth boxes

Cloth Boxes

Another item that has become extremely helpful when traveling are cloth boxes. We use these throughout our Disney Resort to help keep us organized. We typically have one in the bathroom to collect items in one area. By the door is another area where we put one of these. This is where we toss in our sunglasses, MagicBands and other small items we need to grab on teh way out of the door.

I also use them for each kid. Each has a cube that we put our pjs in in the morning and our clothes for the next day in at night. Even as teenagers, this helps them keep track of their items and makes it easier to get ready.

Portable Fans

When traveling to Walt Disney World during the hot and humid summer months, it is essential to have items to help keep you cool. One of our favorite items to have is individual fans. Having air movement while waiting in lines can be a huge life saver.

There are many different ones on Amazon, but we prefer to have ones that allow us to recharge so we don’t have to worry about packing batteries. Having a fan for everyone can make it easier to manage the heat.

Ziplock Bags

Ziploc Bags

Ziploc bags are not specific to Amazon but still essential to our Disney trips.  We bring a variety of sizes with us to Disney because they come in handy. Not only do we use them to keep our electronics dry, but we also like having them for trash or leftovers that we can take with us.

We are surprised each trip at how functional these bags are which is why they are on our must have list.

Portable Charger

We will tell you that one of our essential items for our Disney trip is our portable charger. Because My Disney Experience is so essential to a successful trip, it is necessary to have a charged phone.

We ensure that each of us has a portable charger to take into the Park with us. These aren’t as big, but will recharge a phone at least once. We also have purchased bigger portable chargers that we have with us during long flights.

Don’t forget to purchase a portable charger and cords for your trip!

Compact Umbrella

Even though we hope to have sunshine throughout our Disney trip, we know rain is always possible in Disney. We have purchased tiny, compact umbrellas that are easy to have in our Disney Parks bag daily.These don’t take up a lot of room, but they are great for when it starts to drizzle. We also use it to block out the sun during the scorching days.

Cooling Towels

Our final item to share is cooling towels. We only thought these were necessary once in Disney during the summer months. These provide significant relief when in the Parks during the hot summer months.

You can easily have them in your bag and use throughout the day when the temperate starts to rise. We have also put them in our Resort fridge to ensure they are cold when needed.

Disney sells them in the Parks, but finding them on Amazon is much cheaper.

Those are the nine items from Amazon that we find extremely helpful during our Walt Disney World vacations. They help us stay organized when packing and in our hotel room and keep us safe when in the Parks.
