Continuing our recommendations on the "8 Things you should bring to Disney PART 1" from yesterday, we have 4 more must-haves for your Disney trip.

 

# 5 - Snacks

If you want to save some money while at the park, you will definitely need to carry some snacks with you. Disney has no rules against snacks from home. You could even bring your own sandwich for lunch if you choose. I found that if you know where to eat, it won’t cost you a fortune, and will be well worth the experience. Buying snacks for all the kids can be not only costly, but time consuming. You surely have the space to bring snaks in your Mighty Be.

 

# 6 – Glow-in-the-dark colorful toys

Walking at one of the Disney parks at night is truly magical. The way they decorate the buildings is something out of a dream. You can see lots of people and kids with glow-in-the dark toys. Some spin, some have interesting shapes. And they cost extra cash. If that is not in your budget, you can be prepared, and bring your own from home, like this Flashing Star Necklace and give it to your kid at the end of the day, so they don’t feel left out.

 

# 7 – Disney T-Shirts

You can buy it online for a fraction of what you will end up paying if you buy it last minute at the park or at Downtown Disney. Last time we went, I spotted some Disney shirts at our local store that were on sale. This time, I found great deals online. They can start as low as $3.99 (as oposed to $19.99+ at the Disney Store). So I bought in advance.

 

My daughter loved wearing her Tinker Bell T-shirt to Magic Kingdom, and it was a conversational piece when she met Tinker Bell in person

# 8 – Reclining Umbrella Stroller

I travel quite a bit with the kids. At first I didn’t think it was worth it to invest in a nice umbrella stroller. After my first trip, I changed my mind. My back hurt so much from stooping over the short stroller, and I was so frustrated with the wheels not turning to the right way, I bit the bullet and invested in a nice, tall stroller. I didn’t want to break the bank either, so I did a lot of research before I bought Britax stroller very simmilar to the B-Nimble. The difference is that mine doesn't have the adaptor to the infant car seat. It really helps to have a compartment underneath to store your bag. The reclining feature is also a must. At the end of the day my daughter was tired, and wanted to take a nap. So easy with our reclining stroller.

 

Another must-have feature is the ease of opening and folding, as well as carrying it when closed. If you take the Disney bus from your hotel to the parks, you will need to close the stroller, so you don’t want to spend 5 minutes trying to deal with the stroller while everyone is waiting for you.

 

My favorite part about my umbrella stroller was the fact that it was tall, so I did not need to bed over to push it. It gave me good space for my feet too, and I didn’t find myself kicking the back of the stroller with every step. What a relief!

 

Disney parks do offer strollers for rental. But, they are not the most comfortable things in the world. The single unit is small, not really god for naps. The double strollers are larger. But in any case, you don’t get to take it to the parking lot or back to your hotel with you. Depending on what room you are in, you still have a bit of walking to do when you get back to the hotel, and chances are the little one will be asleep. This is why I highly recommend that you bring your own umbrella stroller like the B-Nimble.

 

 

There it is. The 8 things you must bring to Disney in your next vacation. I hope you have a magical trip!
