What To Pack For Walt Disney World

We'll be in Disney World next week and we cannot wait. We've been a number of times now, so I have the packing down. Sort of. I'm not the neatest packer, but I do remember most things that we need. 


Obviously I pack the necessities like IDs, credit cards, money, tickets, etc...

But what about the other things that you might not think of. Well, I have a list of what I always bring. 

To start with, we always bring Steve our Baby Yoda. And this time Steve has a few special clothing pieces. I also make sure we bring our NuiMos and shoulder friends. 




I also make sure to pack the following: 


--sunscreen (it can get hot. This is important. Make sure you reapply throughout the day.)

-bandaids (you might get blisters from all the walking!)

-ponchos/umbrellas (it will probably rain at least once while you are there)

-extra socks (in case you get drenched from the rain. No one likes wet socks.)

-extra shoes (same reason as above)

-small plastic storage bag (for taking food that might not be eaten to have later. Some places do have to go boxes, but I find bags are easier. For example, Natalie doesn't always eat all her nuggets so I put it in the bag and if she's hungry a few hours later, it's ready to go and easy to transport.)

-Plenty of underwear (I mean. Yes.)

-deodorant (I keep mine in my bag with me while at the parks. You will sweat a lot. Don't be the stinky tourist.)

--chafing cream (people can get what is known as the "disney rash" from walking a ton. Gold Bond can help with this. 

-various outfits (my daughter seems to think we're at Downton Abbey and wants to have one for each meal. No. But do have one per day because you will sweat.)

-ears/hats (we've bought them over the years and bring our favorites--you can also buy cheaper ones at Five Below!)



-chargers (very important since many people take tons of photos with their phones)

-portable battery (we're always using our phones so the battery goes fast. That's why I always have portable batteries. If you forever there are Fuel Rods in the park you can use for a fee)

-handheld fans (it will be hot so these come in handy if you feel overheated)



-favorite toiletries (lotions, soaps, etc..you will get some in your room, but if you have a specific cream, bring it.)

-snacks (you'll save money if you bring your own but we still buy a ton of snacks there. We bring our own mostly for when we're back in the room or on the plane.)

-water tumbler (you can get free water throughout the parks to refill your tumbler. I believe water fountains are available as well. Otherwise it's like $4 for a bottle of water.)

-masks (you still need to wear them on transportation and if you're traveling by airplane, you'll need them for the airport and on the plane)


We can't wait for our trip. DisneyWorld is truly one of our happy places. You can follow along with our adventures on my Instagram Stories



Are you a good packer?

Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude and I'll delete the link.


HEY, IT'S OKAY....


 .....to be taking Natalie to a salon to get her hair bleached. She has dyed it every such color: blue, pink, green...now she wants it bleached. Mind you, she does use vegan dyes that are better for the hair. I figure now is the time where she should experiment but I did warn her that all these different colors could ruin her hair. 


......to be excited about our trip to Walt Disney World! We'll be there next week. We have someone coming to take care of the pets, so we're good to go. Well. I need to pack. Wish me luck. 


....to be watching Big Brother and hoping Frenchie is sent home. He seems a bit unstable. 


.....to love fidget toys as much as my kids. We were sent this Fidget Tri-Pad from BunMo and it has ten sensory fidgets on it. This is perfect for people who can't be still and need to be doing something. You can get it on Amazon here for under $5.

Delicious Foods I've Recently Tried

Trying new foods is exciting for me. Most of what I pick up would be considered snacks. (Or drinks!) Sometimes they are fantastic, other times I'm like "what is this?" You can find most of these in most grocery stores, or I indicate where you can find them if it's a different spot. 


Here's what I've recently tasted. 


These Disco morsels are exciting if you love glitter, which we do. Not all the morsels have the glitter though, but they are still worth it to get.



We love Cosmic Brownies in the house so I knew I had to try the Cosmic Brownies cereal. It had a delicious chocolate flavor and there were sprinkles. 





I found these Summer BLT chips from Lays and was intrigued. They had an interesting flavor. You had a mixture of a bacon-y taste mixed with a lighter one. 




This drink isn't new, but the place is for me. They had so many delicious options. I went with the Cantaloupe drink with tapioca balls. I discovered I do not like tapioca balls in my drinks. They're too slimy for me. Natalie loves them though. But next time I'll get mine WITHOUT tapioca balls. 



These rolls also aren't new, but I love them. If you have a Golden Chick nearby, get the rolls! They remind me of the ones at Texas Roadhouse. We always pick up a dozen.




These Salted Caramel Brownie Oreos were tasty. There's actual salt on the cookie so it brings the flavor together. 




Okay, so these Klondike Cones caught my attention because they had a Unicorn flavor. There was a vanilla as well, which tasted like a vanilla cone. The unicorn one was colorful and had a strange bubble gum flavor. I really wasn't a fan, but Natalie liked it:




Finally, I am a sucker for Lucky Charms. These have marshmallow clusters. I guess I was picturing actual rice krispie treat crumbles. These aren't that, but I still enjoyed the cereal. They are more thrilling than the oat pieces that are usually with Lucky Charms. 




Have you tried any of these foods yet?
