Disney Park Essentials That Will Fit In Your Purse

We all seem to bring some kind of bag with us whenever we go to a Disney park. Backpacks, diaper bags, purses, tote bags, soft sided coolers…you name it.

What do I bring to Walt Disney World? My purse. That’s it. It’s one of those cross-body purses that are easy to carry around. It may be small, but it can hold most of the Disney park essentials that any visitor might need.

I should mention that my husband is a trooper and he does carry a huge backpack around the parks. So he lugs around the ponchos, baseball caps, bottled water, snacks, and anything else we may need that is big. But I carry some very important things in that little bag of mine!

Disney Park Essentials In My Purse

  1. Hand Sanitizer – Germs are unavoidable whenever there are that many people in one place. A little hand sanitizer throughout the day is a must!
  2. Wet Wipes – It’s almost impossible to eat a Mickey ice cream bar without needing a wet wipe.
  3. Tissues – For snotty kids and adults.
  4. Band Aids – For little kid boo boos and grown up blisters.
  5. Portable Phone Charger – You need your smart phone for so many reasons in the parks nowadays. From tracking down a family member to changing your FastPass reservation. You can’t afford to have your battery die on you.
  6. Paper and a Pen – You never know when you might want to jot something down.
  7. Sunglasses – I truly can’t function during the day without them, especially at Walt Disney World.

Of course, this isn’t everything that goes in my purse. I also include the basics, like cash, credit cards, ID, hairbrush, etc. But all of those Disney park essentials fit nicely in my bag too. (Confession time…I would totally use a fanny pack if they were still popular. I had a Walt Disney World one in the early ’90’s that I loved!)

  1. Good ideas! Definitely need wet wipes with the younger kids. This last time we didn’t take any little kids with us so we could take a whole lot less stuff with us! It’s amazing how much you need when you have children along!

      1. For you next trip look up Fuel Rod Kiosks in the park. $30 one time fee, you can exchange for FREE when the battery dies for a FULLY charged one, unlimited number of times, and you can do it every time you go! Not just a one time deal!

  2. I have been on the hunt for a decent looking fanny pack…they were so functional, why did they get a bad rap?! LOL

    I have a crossbody too, a Baggallini that I LOVE!! I’m with you on the sunglasses, can’t do a Disney day without them.

  3. I would totally rock a fanny pack too! 🙂 Great tips and I like your cross body purse, I need to try that out on our next trip. Now that my kids are out of diapers I don’t need to carry as much thankfully.

  4. We have little ones still so we have always had a diaper bag and another bag. We learned that we do better bringing 2 smaller bag over 1 big bag. It’s easier to get them under the sit-n-stand stroller that way. We also bring dollar store ponchos so we are ready if it rains. One tip we learned is to bring a cheap clear shower liner. You can use it to cover your stroller if it starts raining and your kids can still see out.

    We are making our next trip this November and the girls will be 9, 6, and 4. We have always loved having the sit-n-stand stroller but we are debating if they will be old enough to just bring an umbrella stroller. Any recommendations?

    1. On our first family trip, our boys were 5 1/2 and hadn’t used a stroller in years. Three cranky days into our trip, we decided to rent the Disney double stroller each day. This time our boys will be 7 1/2 and there is no way they would fit (since they are really tall). We would totally still use one if we could!
