Must Have Items To Take to Disney World
There are some must have items that you should take with your to Disney World. I have found that these items always come in handy. We’re frequent visitors to the parks and it sucks when you have to spend more money than necessary that you could have done something else with. These 5 items will save you time and money on your trip.

In Florida, you never know when that 15-minute storm is going to come down and it sucks to pay $18 for one poncho at Walt Disney World. (Trust me, I’ve had to do it. Yes, I should have known better) This are one of my top must have items because of that. It’s also something that I make sure that we have packed in our bags because there have been many times where it was forgotten.
2. Disney Pins.
If you are interested in collecting and trading Disney Pins, there are some great deals on Amazon like this one Disney Trading Pins-Lot of 25-No Duplicates-LE-HM-Rack-Cast-Free Shipping-1. You can also find some on places like eBay. This is a great way to have some fun and interact with castmembers.
For your autograph book (I know it’s weird, but not all autograph books come with a pen)Disney Mickey and Minnie Gel Pen Set. I haven’t found cheaper autograph books on Amazon, there are some listed but I haven’t tried them and some of them had weird reviews. Etsy, however, does have some cute ones. It can be a lot of fun to get creative with your autograph books.
4. Light up toys
These are always fun when you’re at the park at night Glowsticks, 100 Light up Toys Glow Stick Bracelets Mixed Colors (Tube of 100). Kids have a blast with glow toys (even away from the parks) but this can be a big money saver and I guarantee they will have just as much fun with these as they would the one $24 item you can purchase in the park (which always has the possibility of getting lost or having to be carried by you for the night).
Pure Sun Defense Disney Frozen Sunscreen Spray SPF 50
Funny fact- Frozen Sunscreen is a top-rated sunscreen. See this article from the Today Show and Consumer Reports Review. You may not think you need the sunscreen but trust me, even on overcast days it can often be needed especially if you are fair-skinned.
Other Recommended Items:
These are some bonus items that I like to take with us. I pack a small gift that is from one of the characters. I typically find them at Walmart, Target or on sale at the Disney Store. Anything from a small plush, to pj’s, or small figurines. They kids love it. I’ll get to the room before they go in and put them out. Plan B is to do it when we leave the hotel room the first time. When we stayed at the Wilderness Lodge I got a Chip and Dale plush and gave one to each of the kids from Chip and Dale. You wouldn’t believe how excited they are about it and how much it defers them from asking to buy stuff at the park.
World Of Disney located in Disney Springs
World of Disney at Disney Springs has a MUCH bigger selection of souvineers than any of the gift shops at Disney World. I have no idea why, but they do, I first noticed it with the Ears. I found the same Mickey Ears in every gift shop but at World Of Disney, they had Captain America Mickey Ears, Chewbacca Mickey Ears, a huge variety of stuff. Even their plush and clothing had more of a variety.
Is there anything you’ve taken with you that has saved you $?
