What are some things I should order or could need for my trip next month? I know I need a new lightweight portable battery pack, but what kinds of things do you all purchase last minute before your trips?
Disposable ponchos. They are slightly cheaper at Walmart (and usually easier to find) than Target.
I have a “Disney” list that permanently lives in my AnyList app. Things that I need to pick up almost without fail include mainly toiletries things, like sunscreen, shampoo and conditioner, new toothbrushes and razors.
Aloe Vera for sunburns. If you wear glasses, a repair kit is nice to keep packed.
Speaking of needing shampoo and conditioner: we were doing our trip stuff this weekend and DH says, “why do you need shampoo and conditioner? They have some right in the room.”
Ah, spoken like a dude. Guy, if I use that stuff for three days I’ll look like the straw man. Nine days and I’ll want to shave it off.
Yeah but I gotta pack my own body wash.
Don’t want to waft around the park smelling like Hibiscus Tranquility - the Aromatherapy Apocalypse
Really I just want to smell like “Fuck It. He’s Clean for Men”
That’s interesting. I don’t like the body wash/shampoo/conditioner because I think it smells too manly and woodsy.
At WDW specifically?
Hmmm if I could save some room in my toiletry kit…
Yes! Do you think the Orlando water itself also wreaks havoc on your hair? Mine always feels so terrible and I can’t decide if I need way more conditioner than normal or way less to try and combat it.
You know, that’s a really good point and I’ve never thought of that. I’m sure it does!
Ponchos, band-aids, moleskin for blisters, bodyglide…I am hoping that by being fully prepared we won’t need any of that stuff.
My hair never feels clean there and the toiletries smell revolting, I always bring my own. I wish they had kept the orange scent.
I just found one last teeny tiny bottle of the orange bergamot version of the H2O products in my bathroom the other day and had the same thought.
This. I’m allergic to fragrances, so I bring my own everything.
Lip balm, lots of moisturizer, sunscreen.
I still have a couple stashed away.
That’s actually pretty cute
I thought so too. It was part of a heads up from DFB’s weekly Disney Amazon deals.
It comes (almost) in Purple Wall
