When you are busy planning your Walt Disney World vacation, it can be helpful to make lists of things that you’ll need! I make a list of where I want to eat, what I want to ride, and what I need to buy before our trip. Today, I am going to share ten things that you should consider buying before your trip!

Sunscreen is important all year round in Flordia. You can purchase it on Disney property, but it will cost a lot more than it will if you just bring it with you.
Disney World is a very clean place, but there a lot of visitors, so it is easy to pick up germs!
A cheap pair of sunglasses will work great for your Disney World trip. That way, if you lose them somehow, you won’t be upset. If you are prone to loosing sunglasses, you may want to pack a few pairs!
You cannot buy gum on Disney property. So if you want it on your trip, you will have to bring it!
If you are staying on property, you probably bought a package that includes tickets. If you are not, then you may be considering just buying your tickets the day you get to the parks. Do not do this! Visitors that are staying off property can book fast passes 30 days in advance if you have your tickets.
Portable Phone Charger
Between the My Disney Experience App, taking pictures, and killing time in lines, your phone may need charged more often than usual. A portable charger will come in handy. They do sell Fuel Rods on Disney property, but since their charging power is limited, there are definitely better options available to buy!
Disney World has so many things you can buy! We encourage you to buy some of those things, but it is also fun to buy things before hand and surprise your children with them. On our last trip, one of us put a surprise on the bed before the rest of us entered several times throughout the week. We told our daughter they were gifts from Mickey!
You can buy discounted gift cards at several retail stores. We have bought them at Target and Sams Club. We took these gift cards to use instead of cash.
It rains a lot in Flordia! If you do not bring ponchos, you may be stuck paying almost $10 each for them in the parks.
Disney Themed Clothing
A visit to Disney World is a wonderful, immersive experience. One way to get the most of your trip is to wear Disney related clothes. For extra magic, if your child is wearing a character themed outfit, make sure you meet that character!
I hope this list is helpful! When you go to on vacation, what do you buy in advance?
