Disney Essentials

It’s no secret that there are so many items you absolutely must bring in your Disney Theme Park bag for your Disney World vacation! Here, I’ve listed all the items you need to pack in your bag; I never visit Disney without these Amazon favorites in my bag!

Theme Park Fan

I know fans aren’t the greatest fashion statement, but they make such a difference in regulating your temperature. About 3/4ths of the guests will have them in the parks, so you will not stick out, I promise!

I love this theme park fan because it is one of a few portable fans that also provides relief to the back of your neck, it’s quiet, and I can still be hands-free through the park with this fan on. It is one of the very best gifts my husband has ever given me and easily the best of these Amazon favorites; no lie!

Depending on how powerful you set your fan, you can get about 2.5-9 hours of use. I usually keep my fan on the second-fastest setting and can get about 7 hours of use, especially if I turn the fan off when I am inside. If I’m planning a full day at the parks, I bring the charger with me and plug it into a FuelRod. Then, I’ll watch an air-conditioned show like Country Bear Jamboree while I wait for the fan to charge.

Dime Wonderscreen Sunscreen

The best sunscreen! This sunscreen is always my base layer before heading to the parks, and it always protects me so well! I love this sunscreen because it’s made of clean ingredients, it’s physical SPF-30 sunscreen, and it feels so light on my skin. I also appreciate that it goes on clear and doesn’t leave a white shadow on my skin like so many other physical sunscreens. Lastly, it comes with a built-in moisturizer which is perfect for my combination skin type.

Neutrogena Sunscreen

This is actually one of my dermatologist’s Amazon favorites, and I’m stealing it! He loves the Wonderscreen as well, but this is his favorite spray-style sunscreen, especially for his patients with acne-prone skin. Neutrogena is very gentle on the skin and is a skin-care brand first, making it a great sunscreen brand too!

I also love this product because it’s a spray, so when I’m sweaty in the parks I can simply spray it on without having to touch my skin. This is also lightweight and doesn’t make me uncomfortable in the parks, and it’s waterproof!

FuelRod

FuelRods are a very unique and helpful portable battery charger for all your electronics. First, the battery charger is small and compact, only slightly larger than a lipstick. This makes it great for conserving space in your theme park bag! The FuelRod also comes with all of the chargers and adapters you could need, along with a carrying case to store it all together.

However, my absolute favorite feature, and why I pack FuelRods specifically in my bag, is because you can swap them out throughout the parks! There are FuelRod vending machines or kiosks all throughout Disney property. Instead of having to remember to recharge your FuelRod, you can visit a kiosk and swap your dead FuelRod for a fully charged one at no additional cost! This is such a helpful tool for me! I use FuelRods to recharge my phone, my theme park fans, and so much more, so having the ability to swap FuelRods and continue charging is such a huge help!

Lastly, while you can purchase a FuelRod at Disney, I recommend purchasing from Amazon in advance, as you can purchase two FuelRods on Amazon for the price of one at Disney.

Blister Band-Aids

With all the walking required at Disney, it’s possible you might rub blisters. And nothing, I mean nothing, is worse than walking 10,000+ steps per day with blisters! I love these because they are specifically designed for blisters. The adhesive is much stronger than regular Band-Aids so you don’t have to worry about them falling off. Don’t sleep on this item!

Kate Spade Sunglasses

I’ve had these sunglasses over a year, and they are still my favorite pair that I wear daily. I have blue eyes, and if you have light eyes, you know the struggle of seeing in the sun! My husband is constantly making fun of how terribly I squint whenever I forget to bring these!

These are the best I’ve found to make seeing in the sun easier. They are also polarized and super stylish! I have the Havana Pattern Green / Brown Gradient Polarized, but I would say they’re much more turquoise in color than green. I love them and they’re definitely a favorite at Amazon!

Ponchos

One of my Amazon favorites is to purchase your Disney ponchos on Amazon ahead of your trip! Florida weather is unpredictable so you definitely need rain gear during your trip as you will encounter rain. For more on this, check out my blog post on it!

Further, the ponchos that are sold at Disney are wildly overpriced, so you can save a lot of money by purchasing them in advance! My favorite adult-sized Disney ponchos are here, and my favorite child-sized Disney ponchos are here.

Rain Jacket

I personally find the ponchos to be a little bit overheating, so I typically bring a rain jacket instead of a poncho. If rain jackets are more your speed, here is a great option! I love that it can be placed in the pouch, so you don’t get the rest of your bag wet once you’re done using it. It comes in multiple colors as well, which is a major perk!

Autograph Books

Another way to save money during your trip is to purchase autograph books on Amazon prior to your Disney World vacation. There are so many options and it’s much cheaper than purchasing at Disney!

Reusable Water Bottle

Did you know the sun can dehydrate you? And guess what? Most of Disney World is in the sun! You have to stay hydrated during your Disney World vacation, and a reusable water bottle is the way to go! Disney sells very overpriced Dasani water (eww), so you want to have another option! If you have a reusable water bottle, you can visit any counter-service location for a free cup of filtered ice-water to fill your water bottle up with instead.

I love this Lilly Pulitzer Stainless Steel Water Bottle because it keeps water cold for longer, and it’s leak-proof! As long as you have the lid sealed tightly, you can throw it in your theme park bag without worrying that it will leak all over your other items. And I mean, come on, have you seen a cuter water bottle?!

Electrolytes

In the same manner as the water bottle, if you’re trying to stay hydrated during your Disney World vacation, you will need to add electrolytes to your water! I love the Gatorade Electrolyte Packets because you can easily throw a few packets into your theme park bag to use throughout the day. The flavors are awesome, and they mix really well with no texture or grittiness!

Lume Body Deodorant

Ok, I’m about to get really honest with you for this Amazon favorite! When you’re out at the parks, you’re moving and walking a lot in high-temp Florida heat. This means you’re much more likely to sweat in places other than your armpits! I tend to sweat on the back of my neck and thighs and have been trying this product out for a while now and it works great!

Warning! The active ingredient in this lotion does not smell amazing, so I recommend getting a scent! I have the coconut scent, and I can still smell the unpleasant odor when I first apply, but it quickly fades away and leaves only the coconut scent. The texture is amazing; it feels like you’re just putting on lotion! While I use antiperspirant for my armpits, this is my go-to body deodorant when I need it for a day at Disney.

Clarks Women’s Breeze Sea

Outside of the two months where it’s chilly and I wear sneakers, these are my go-to shoes at Disney! The memory foam padding is perfect to prevent my feet from hurting. I also tend to swell in the heat, so these keep me comfortable when that happens. I have used these shoes for years and haven’t found anything better for the parks!

Travel Medicine Organizer

Having three autoimmune conditions, I’m always traveling with medications. These small, lightweight medicine organizers are perfect to throw in a purse or backpack in case you need some extra medication while you’re enjoying your Disney World vacation. I always have one of these in my purse and I appreciate how it doesn’t weigh down my bag!

Sunscreen Dots

Trust me, you’re going to want these during your Disney World vacation! You’d be surprised with how much fun you’re having that you won’t even remember to reapply sunscreen! That’s where sunscreen dots come in. You simply place one on your skin (I typically use a shoulder or inside my elbow) and then apply your sunscreen as you normally would onto your body and the sticker. Throughout the day, the dot will change colors letting you know it’s time to reapply. I love how simple and helpful these are to use!

Pool Essentials

I live in Florida, which means I practically live at the pool! I absolutely love swimming and spending time in the water. Here are my Amazon favorites for the pool or the beach.

Pool Bag

I’ve talked about this pool bag on my Instagram account before, and I’m mentioning it here too because I love it that much! It is a big, oversized pool bag which is always needed! This bag comes in many colors and both the inside and outside are made of polyester so you can easily wipe it down if needed! It comes with two lengths of straps so you can throw it over a shoulder or hold it by your hand too.

What makes this an amazon favorite, however, are the pockets! There are two inside pockets that are a perfect size for sunscreen, sunglasses, wallet, etc. The third pocket is glorious; it’s actually insulated! Meaning, you can throw a cold soda or snack into it and zip it up to keep it cool. Genius!!

Neutrogena Sunscreen

Reusable Water Bottle

There are so many reasons why I keep turning to this water bottle at the pool and theme parks! Scroll up to read more about it!

Miracle Suit Bathing Suits

One of the hidden secrets of Amazon favorites! If you are larger chested, you need to look into this brand of bathing suit! I have struggled with bathing suit shopping my entire life, as I have a smaller band but a larger cup size, so S/M/L sizing doesn’t work out for me. It’s a more expensive brand, but I have not struggled ONCE with bathing suit shopping since finding this brand because they are so incredible!

The number one reason I love Miracle Suit is because it comes in bra sizing, so I can get the suit to fit both my band and cup! Miracle Suit also has underwire built into the suit so you can get the best support possible. While it is not padded, there is a place where you can insert your own cups for modesty.

Lastly, I am also a bit self-conscious in my tummy area, and these bathing suits are GEMS for how flattering they are! I never once feel self-conscious in these; in fact, I feel very confident in my appearance with these. I own multiple bathing suits in the tankini style (including the one pictured above) and they’ve lasted me a couple of years now, as the quality is so great!

Pom Pom Cover Up

This is my favorite cover up that I wear to the pool almost daily. I have had it for years and it’s still in such great quality! I have Colorball Black and Pom Sky Blue colors, but there’s so many more you can choose as well. It’s a lightweight cover up and it washes in the washing machine well too!

Oversized Beach Towels

Love these oversized beach towels! They come in a bunch of colors, so every family member can have a different color. They’re fluffy, quick drying, and huge!

Ultra Swim Chlorine Removal Shampoo

If you are a blonde, you need this Amazon product! It’s pretty well known that blonde hair can turn green when mixed with chlorine. I can’t lie, it’s happened to me once or twice, and every time this shampoo has completely removed the green and reset my hair color! It’s safe for color treated hair too.

Philosophy Pure Grace Body Wash and Body Lotion

photo of pure grace lotion

I have very dry, sensitive skin and absolutely love using these products after a day in the sun and chlorine. They have a light, clean scent of jasmine and clean waters. It’s hard to describe the scent, but it’s a perfect refreshing scent after the pool, without being overpowering. I also receive infusions that dry out my skin, and these are the best products I have found to re-hydrate my skin after infusions.

Household Essentials

I work from home, so having incredible household essentials is super important to me. Here are all my favorite household items I love and use often!

Ninja Foodi

photo of ninja foodi

Of all of my kitchen appliances that take up space, this is the one I use the most! The Ninja Foodi is a combined air fryer and pressure cooker, so you get all the incredible features of two appliances in one. In fact, in the summers, I keep this out on the counter and use it instead of the oven to avoid heating up my kitchen. It makes incredible, crispy air fried items, and saves time with the pressure cooker. The quality is great and has lasted me multiple years and is comparable in price to either an air fryer or pressure cooker. If you add any kitchen item to your Amazon wish list, trust me, make it this!

AeroGarden Hydroponic Indoor Garden

I love fresh herbs, but it’s so expensive to purchase them from the store! I complained about it to my brother, and he got me this for Christmas as a solution! It’s such an easy way to grow fresh herbs or other produce. I have the smallest version that has three seed pods, but AeroGarden sells larger options too; I just love how little room it takes up in my kitchen. All you have to do is add water every once in a while, and plant food every two weeks (it tells you when it needs it). You’ll be surprised with how just how much herb growth you’ll see!

Crock-Pot Slow Cooker

photo of crock-pot

Everyone needs a crock-pot slow cooker in their kitchen, especially those who work! It’s so easy to throw in all the ingredients for dinner, set the slow cooker, and head off to work. Then, once you’re done with work, so is dinner! Genius!

My only issue with crock-pots in the past has been that many recipes cook for 6-hours, yet I worked 8-hours so I wouldn’t be home to turn it off at the end of its cooking time. This crock-pot fixes that for me! I can set it up for the 6-hour cooking time, and once it’s finished it automatically switches to a warming feature, so it stops cooking but stays warm once I get home!

Disney Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker

Do you want to make the iconic Mickey Mouse shaped waffles you and your family loved while on vacation? If so, look no further! This is such a fantastic buy for any Disney fans; we use ours often. There are two sides, and each side makes 3 Mickey waffles. These are the small kind, just like the ones they serve at Disney World! It’s super easy to use too!

Honeywell Fan

We only have one ceiling fan in our home, and with Florida summers, that simply doesn’t cut it! We’ve tried so many fans over the years, but Honeywell is by far our favorite. This one is sleek and slim; it hardly takes up any space in our living room. I also love that it has so many speed settings and comes with a remote, so I don’t have to get off the couch to change the settings at all! My mom and sister loved it so much when they visited, that they have their own in their homes too now.

Roomba Robot Vacuum

I would be absolutely lost without my Roomba! I have an autoimmune condition that makes vacuuming difficult, so this purchase was an Amazon favorite for sure! It’s set up to run every few days and it keeps our carpet fluffy and fresh, and ours is linked to Google Home so we can even set it to run while we’re out of the house.

The Best of Tech

For this portion of the Amazon Favorites page, I’m turning over to my husband! He is the IT king, tech consultant in my household and our extended family, and it’s no wonder why! He loves researching the highest quality, solutions focused tech gear for our house. I’m so grateful for the time he puts into finding the very best technology to make our home function so well!

Sonos Sound Bar

Our home theater was transformed when we purchased this Sonos Sound Bar. The audio quality is absolutely incomparable to anything else on the market. It’s not cheap, so I recommend saving up and waiting for a sale such as Amazon Prime Day or Black Friday to get the best bang for your buck. We haven’t been to the movie theater once since purchasing this sound bar, because we don’t feel a need with such a high-quality sound bar. Of all the tech listed, this is the purchase that’s made the biggest difference!

Kirsten Ess Dry Shampoo

Unlike other dry shampoo products where I have to spray half the bottle onto my hair for it to make any difference whatsoever, I love how long the Kirsten Ess Dry Shampoo lasts. Seriously, you barely have to spray your hair to remove the grease and move on with your day. It’s lightweight and has a great smell too!

Kirsten Ess Hydrating Signature Sulfate Free Shampoo and Conditioner

photo of Kirstin Ess Shampoo and Conditioner

Can you tell I’m a fan of Kirsten Ess hair products? A few months ago, I learned there’s a difference between “safe for color treated hair” and “sulfate free”. I thought they were the same thing! So, when my hairstylist recommended this sulfate free shampoo and conditioner, I jumped on it! And let me tell you, my hair is so much better since I made the switch! It’s less frizzy, it’s shinier and I love that this is less expensive than the products I was using before.

It’s a 10 Keratin Leave In Conditioner

Since I started chemo infusion treatments, I really struggled with hair thinning and frizz. My hairdresser completed a keratin treatment, and it made such a difference! My hair is so much softer and smoother now with almost no frizz. To extend the life of the keratin treatment, I use this Leave In Conditioner after a shower. I can see a noticeable difference in my hair quality now that I use this product!

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup

I seriously struggle with dry skin. Again, since starting chemo infusions it is such a struggle to hydrate my skin, and so many skincare products irritate my sensitive skin. After years of trying every skincare line I could find, I finally found IT Cosmetics! It doesn’t irritate my skin at all and is the very best product line I have found for hydrating your skin. I don’t wear makeup, but I love how hydrating this makeup remover is, which is why I still use it. In fact, I love using this as a mask when I’m looking for deep hydration.

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream

This is my absolute favorite moisturizer! I’ve used it for years and it still has yet to disappoint me. It’s the most hydrating moisturizer I’ve found without being greasy, and I also love that it doesn’t irritate my acne-prone skin. I use it morning and night and don’t have to think about skincare outside of this product because it’s packed with everything I need. If you have sensitive, dry skin, you absolutely must try this!

Dime Beauty Eyelash Boost Serum

I wish I was a blogger when I first used this product, because you would be amazed by my before and after photos using this product! The first time I used this eyelash boost serum was in preparation for my wedding. I really wanted a natural wedding look, so I wasn’t a fan of eyelash extensions. A friend recommended this product to me and I’m so glad she did because it’s perfect! I used it every night for about a month and saw such a difference in volume and length. It provides such a naturally eye-catching look without being over the top, which is just my style. I still use it nightly and one bottle lasts me many months.

    1. They definitely are! I’m pretty good about applying every two hours, but when you add sweat or rain to the mix, you need to re-apply sooner. Sunscreen dots are a huge help with that!
