The Ultimate Guide to Disney Park Gear

Mickey Ears or Hat

Most trips to Disney World I buy a new pair of Mickey Earss, but this last visit I went a different route and bought a white hat with a Mickey silhouette.

I knew I could get use of the hat all year long…and so far I have!!!

Disney Pin Lanyard

I’ve had a pink Disney lanyard collecting pins since 2007! Before Pin Trading was cool!

I purchased a resealable card holderthat clips to the bottom of the lanyard and I love it. It’s just big enough to hold my I.D. and the cash I like to carry in case I want to make a small purchase.

One of my favorite pins is the Mickey&Minnie 4 parks spinner pin. It symbolized how we park hopped all 4 parks in one day and rocked that trip out!!!

Magic Band

I cannot stress enough how much I love and appreciate the Disney magic bands.

It’s everything you need on one water proof band: park tickets, room key (if staying on Disney Property), credit card info for purchases and much more!

If you’re staying on Disney property the magic bands were previously complimentary …as of 2021 Disney offeres a discounted price on the bands before you arrive.

If you’re not staying on property the magic bands start at $12.99 and go up depending on the style or character design you want. The bands are reusable and can be connected through the the My Disney Experience App.

Disney Clothing

Weather it’s a tank top, tee-shirt, hoodie, scarf, or cooling towel…a Disney themed clothing item of some kind is a must!

I like being Disney themed at the parks, and I’ve just recently come across the new style they call Disney Bound where you use regular clothing colors to match Disney characters. I already have a themed outfit ready for our next trip!!! #imadisneydork

Celebration Buttons

Our last trip my mom and I celebrated our birthdays together so we wore Happy Birthday buttons during our visit.

It amazed me how many different cast members acknowledged us and wished us a happy birthday!

We even received free desserts at a couple of restaurants…BONUS!!!

The best thing though was during the Festival of Fantasy Parade Merida(from Brave) saw my button and wished me a Happy Birthday from her float. Talk about shrieking like a little kid!! Totally made my day!!

These celebration buttons are just an added touch of magic.

1st visit? Get a button.

Wedding Anniversary? Get a button.

It’s your Birthday? Get a button. 

If there is one thing I’ve learned about Disney vacations it’s that Disney thinks of everything!!! Most guest service locations have these buttons…just stop by and ask!

Comfy Walking Shoes

According to knowwdw.com the total walking distance of all 4 Disney Parks put together is 8.51 miles! Wow!!

That’s a lot of walking… not to mention throwing in water parks, Disney Springs, Disney’s Boardwalk, Putt-Putt and any other activities you may do while at the Walt Disney World Resort.

If you don’t invest in anything for your trip…invest in good shoes.

I purchased the Sketchers GoWalks approximately two months before our trip…wore them a good bit to break them in beforehand… and they were amazing in the parks!!! 

I also like converse but most people will not agree with me on those being a great park shoe…

Florida is the sunshine state for a reason. You will most definitely need some awesome shade to rock at the parks.

Park Bag 

This will hold all the little things you’re gonna need throughout your day at the park.

My go-to Disney Park Bag is a cute Mickey drawstring bag. It’s super lightweight and the straps are easlily hidden for pics.

Bonus Tip:

On my December trip we did a scavenger hunt at Disney Springs for a Holiday Stitch Button!!!

From now on I will always ask cast members if there are any promos like that going on!! Everyone asked us where we got our cool Stitch button!!!
