Disney Hacks - How to Pack a Disney Grab Bag

Looking for NO-FEE Concierge Disney Vacation Planning? I'd love to chat with you about how to make your family's Disney Vacation (World, Land, Cruise, Aulani, Hilton Head, Adventures) seamless, fun (even for you Mom!) and full of life-long memories. Email me at Lareina@WaltsWorldVacations or on Facebook at Lareina with Walt's World Vacations.

Knowing what you'll need to bring with you to the parks is essential to a good Disney vacation. Here is how to #HackYourDisneyVacation by packing the perfect Disney grab bag.

So there are many things you'll want to bring with you to the park, but only the essentials need to be in your grab bag if you're also bringing a stroller to hold your other less important items.

Leave with the stroller (see my blog for more info about how to select and pack the perfect stroller)
  • Ponchos, food and water bags, blanket, water fans, LED glow items
Pack in your Disney Grab Bag
  • Wallet with credit cards, license & cash
  • Magic Bands
  • 2 pairs of sunglasses for each person
  • Sunscreen
  • Bandaids
  • Triple Antibiotic Ointment
  • Ibuprofen for kids and adults
  • Nail scissors 
  • Camcorder
  • Camera
  • Battery pack phone charger (you will ROLL though your phones battery in Disney)
  • Plug in phone charger
  • A change of clothes in plastic bags for each kid (this could also be left with the strollers)
  • Diapers
  • Wipes
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Bug Spray (especially with the Zika virus) 
  • Water bottle (I keep one with me at all times)
  • A dry snack (usually a snack bar) for each kid
  • Lip balm
  • Gum (they don't sell gum in Disney) or mints
  • bubbles (for waiting in line)
  • Games to play while waiting in line (uno, 5 second rule) 
No selfie sticks, costumes if you're over 12 or alcohol - they won't let you in the park with any of it!
