With Walt Disney World reopening today for an Annual Passholder Preview and this weekend for guests, I thought that it would be a good chance to share the theme park essentials I take to the parks in our new normal.
Walt Disney World Reopening: Theme Park Essentials
While you can find hand sanitizer and hand washing stations throughout the parks, I really like having my own hand sanitizer with me because it gives me the opportunity to go ahead and use a little as soon as I get on or as soon as I get off of an attraction.
Battery Operated Fan
I find the most useful thing to have in my bag when I go into the theme parks is a battery operated fan.
Wearing a mask while you are outside can make things feel hotter than expected, and when I have my battery operated fan I’m able to pop it on when I need an extra boost of cold air to help me feel more comfortable.
Extra Face Coverings
Speaking of feeling more comfortable, I always pack extra face coverings just in case I need to switch them through the day.
It’s the rainy season and wearing a wet face covering is about as comfortable as wearing wet socks, so just make sure you pack an extra mask so that you’ll have it just in case.
This one might sound weird…but stick with me…
I bring alcohol pads, much like the ones that you’d find in a Doctor’s office, to help clean my phone throughout the day.
One thing that I have become hyper aware of is how many times I pick up and put down my phone from a surface during the day, and this gives me an extra slice of peace of mind.
Portable Cell Phone Charger
On every list I’ve ever made about what I keep in my bag, a portable cell phone charger has always been on the list.
However, it’s even more important now as you are going to need to do more things on your phone in the theme parks throughout the day.
These are my five theme park essentials, but I’m sure as I visit the parks more I’m going to find there other things that I like keeping with me so I’m sure they’ll be a part two to this post.
If you have a must-have to bring in your theme park bag, especially for the Walt Disney World Reopening, I would love to hear about it!
