Packing Your Disney Park Bag

What you need in Your Disney Park Bag

I'm still planning away for our upcoming Disney trip and we just can't wait.  Packing for a trip like Disneyland can be so overwhelming but I've put a ton of thought into exactly what you need in the park and tested it out as well.

I am a purse girl but ditch the purse for a Disney trip and bring a backpack.  I have some tips and suggestions of what to bring into the park daily in your backpack.  Here's my list of items:

If your kids are old enough dump some of the weight on them and have them carry a backpack as well.  My girls are too young to be responsible for a bag so my husband or I will have to carry everything.  Remember to keep everything as light as possible; buy travel size items if possible.  Don't carry everything you would in your every day purse.  Keep it to the essential park items; so no Target gift cards along with 500 other coupons, cards and receipts.  The items I have listed also keep the budget in mind.  I don't want to have to buy over priced (and unhealthy) snacks every hour so I bring in snacks as well as a light lunch so we don't have to purchase a lunch for everyone every day.  Souvenirs add up very quickly and several of the items you can buy ahead of time online or at the dollar store.

If you know me I couldn't just get a generic backpack, lunchpail, etc.  I wanted everything to go together and take the Disney theme all out!  I found the cutest backpack and lunchpail from Thirty-One Gifts that are completely useable outside of a Disney trip as well.

The reusable water bottles I snagged are just to die for.  Not only are they adorable but they are super functional as well.  They are double-walled 18/8 stainless steel thermal bottle which keeps hot drinks hot for 12 hours and cold drinks cold for 24 hours! You can grab yours from Isty Bitsy Wear.

Lastly, normal Minnie ears just weren't going to cut it.  I ordered customized ears for me and the girls to coordinate with our outfits.  I am so happy with how these turned out; they are absolutely adorable!  Snag a pair or two or three from  Shop My Mouse.
