Top 3 Must Haves For Any Disney Park Day!

Backpack | Shoes | Ears

There's nothing more important for a day in the parks than making sure you have your essentials to get through the day. After years of practice being at Disney parks all over the world, I've finally figured out what works best for me any time I'm going to a theme park.

My top 3 essentials for any park day (Disney edition):

1) COMFORTABLE SHOES

I honestly don't know how I used to make it through full park days from open to close wearing sandals or wedges. These days, comfortable shoes are the only way I'm making it through the day.

I'm OBSESSED with wearing Keds to the park. Not only are they super comfortable for me but there are so many different types and styles that they can really go with any outfit. Whether it's a day dress, or a shirt and shorts -- Keds will style up any outfit.

2) BAGS

99% of the time, you’ll find me with a crossbody or backpack.. The size of your bag plays a huge part in making sure you have everything you need to get through the day. You don't want something so small that you can't fit anything or so big that you're struggling to carry it around all day.

If I’m going to the parks for a short period of time, I can use a smaller bag. When I’m planning an entire day at the parks, a bigger bag is essential for me.

The Kate Spade Minnie backpack, Dooney & Bourke, Danielle Nicole, and Loungefly bags have become my go-to’s.

Here’s what I ALWAYS have in my bag with me:

  • — Sunglasses

  • — Sunscreen

  • — Hand sanitizer

  • — Chapstick

  • — Mints

  • — Tylenol

  • — Deodorant & thigh rescue*

*Megababe products have changed my life. Their Thigh Rescue anti-chafe stick has saved me from pain so many times. I can’t say enough good things about these products.

3) EARS

My favorite part of any Disney look. There are so many shapes, styles, colors for Ears that you can really show off your own individual Disney style. The parks are getting a lot better at designing stylish ears but the hidden gems are all on Etsy.

As much as I love Disney (and I own lots of park ears) the ears bought in the parks are not the most comfortable. The great thing about buying ears from shops online is that you're not only helping a small shop succeed but you'll be getting ears that you can wear all day from park open to park close.

I've bought ears from many shops, but my absolute favorite for ears is Wayho Ears. These ears are so lightweight and comfortable that sometimes I even forget I have them on. They're so well made that I've had cast members in the parks ask me where I bought them. If you don't have any Disney ears yet, take a look on Etsy. There's tons of great shops to choose from with affordable and beautiful ears!

Well, that's it for my park essentials. If you have any questions about what I use or where it's from definitely let me know, I'm happy to help!

See ya real soon,
