There are so many things that can go wrong on a Disney trip! Getting caught in the rain, dead phones, and total meltdowns can derail a trip that you worked so hard to plan!
Thankfully, many of these problems are avoidable with proper planning! Here are some of our Disney World essentials that can make your next Disney trip the best yet! And guess what, you can get these on Amazon before your trip.
1. Portable Charger
As handy and convenient as Disney’s FuelRods can be, they can also end up being pretty pricey! If you’re looking to save a little cash while you’re at the parks, we recommend grabbing some portable chargers ahead of time, like this Miady 2-pack of portable chargers for $19.99!
A portable charger can be a lifesaver, especially with phones being essential for mobile food orders, Rise of the Resistance queues, and so much more!
2. Snack Packs
You can bring your own food to Disney World. And snacks can mean the difference between a cranky meltdown and a fun day at Disney! Containers like the Sistema KLIP IT collection can help keep snacks secure, fresh, and clean! And you can bring some leftover Disney snacks back to your room if you don’t finish them during the day, You can get this set for $5.99!
Although there are plenty of snacks available in the parks, bringing some of your kid’s favorite snacks can be a great backup plan for “hangry” emergencies.
3. A Good Backpack
A good backpack can really save the day at the Disney parks! Having a place to put snacks, water, and all sorts of other essentials is a necessity! A simple and waterproof back like the Mancro Laptop Backpack provides plenty of space for anything you could possibly need while you’re at the parks! You can get this bag for $21.99!
Although it isn’t absolutely necessary, a waterproof backpack can really help to keep all your stuff dry and secure during a ride on Splash Mountain or a day at Typhoon Lagoon! Or in the case of an unexpected downpour!

4. Waterproof Bandages
Accidents happen and sometimes First Aid is super far away! Waterproof bandages like the Welly Bandages with Waterproof Nautical Patterns can be very handy in a pinch! You can get these bandages for $6.99!
It’s good to keep some bandages in your bag for the inevitable cuts, scrapes, and blisters!
It rains A LOT, especially during hurricane season at Disney World! An umbrella (or a good poncho) like the Siepasa Windproof Travel Compact Umbrella can protect you from the unpredictable Florida weather and keep you dry and cozy! You can get this umbrella for $10.99.
Personally, I wish I had brought an umbrella on all of my Disney World trips, getting caught in the rain (especially when you’ve got food or merch in hand) can be the worst! And lines get REALLY long for umbrellas and ponchos once that downpour starts.
6. Reusable Water Bottle and Straws
On a hot day, a water bottle can help you stay hydrated and save you a little cash! And while Disney has free water at many locations, keeping it cold is one of our priorities. There are water bottle refill stations around the parks and water bottles like the Takeya Originals Water Bottle can help you keep your drinks cool and avoid the pricey bottled water!
You can get this water bottle for $23.99!
Similarly, reusable straws like these Flathead Bent Reusable Silicone Drinking Straws can come in handy in the parks! Many locations, especially in Animal Kingdom have paper straws which aren’t always reliable.
You can get this set of straws for $10.95!
We recently tried a set of these Disney World reusable straws and we really enjoyed our experience.
They were easy to use and easy to clean!
7. Portable Fan
It can get really really hot at Disney World, like the surface of the sun hot! 😉 A portable fan can provide the refreshing breeze we all need on a hot summer day at Disney. A versatile fan like the WiHoo Mini Handheld Stroller Fan can help keep you and your kids nice and cool! You can get this portable fan for $23.99!
Plus, the posable tripod makes it easy to position and attach to any stroller!
The Florida sun can be brutal without the proper protection! A good sunscreen like the Sun Bum Premium Day Tripper Pack can protect you from days of discomfort! You can get this pack for $19.99!
This set is especially handy because it also comes with essential items like a cooling aloe lotion and lip balm! A bad sunburn can make a Disney World trip a pain, so it’s best to be fully prepared!
9. Hand Sanitizer
We have shared out thoughts on bringing your own hand sanitizer to Disney World. And since groups often spit up, it’s a great option to give each group member their own bottle! Therefore, this PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer Variety Pack is perfect for a trip to Disney! You can get this set for $14.05!
Even as things begin returning back to normal, it’s still good to keep your hands nice and clean! There are lots of surfaces around the parks and hand sanitizer is an easy way to feel a bit cleaner!
10. Stroller Attachments
Whether it’s your stroller from home or a Disney rental, stroller attachments can help to prevent all sorts of inconveniences! A stroller lock like this 3 Digit Code Combination Password Lock can stop someone else from running off with all your stuff and will simply keep your stroller from rolling away. You can get this lock for $13.29!
We suggest using the lock to stop the back wheels of your stroller from moving.
A stroller cupholder like this SUNVENO Stroller Universal Cup Holder is another handy gadget that canhelp you and your kids carry drinks and snacks around the parks! You can get this cup holder for $14.99!
Not only could these cup holders carry your drinks and food, but you could also use them to hold a fan or your kid’s favorite light-up toy (personally, I’m a fan of the light-up toy that shoots the bubbles).
A trip to Disney is quite an endeavor, but no need to fear! We’ve got all you need to plan the perfect Disney trip! Stay tuned here for more!
