You’ve mapped it out for months. Spreadsheets created, itineraries nailed down, packing list printed, and suitcases fully stocked and then it happens…you get to the most magical place on Earth only to realize you forgot to pack ___________ (you fill in the blank). There are a few options you can:
a.) leave property and brave the Superstore crowd (of course that will require you to have a car or means of transportation)
b.) go without __________ (of course…is that realistic)
c.) find it on property
So, today we’re going to be looking at where you can find a few of those “uh-oh” items without leaving Disney property. Let’s get packing!!!
*Disclaimer: Buying on property may cost you. Be aware that prices may be up, especially when there is a demand.
HELP! I forgot: Toothbrush…
No worries! Dental woes will not get you down when you’re visiting Mickey! Luckily, every Disney World hotel comes with it’s own…you guessed it…GIFT SHOP. That’s right, you can find more than just souvenirs in these gift shops. There like mini-marts stocked with just about any personal toiletry item you could ever need. With everything from the run-of-the-mill tube of toothpaste to deodorant, mouthwash, dental floss, hairspray, chapstick and everything in between, you can find the things that keep you so fresh and clean. Disney’s got you covered when it comes to personal hygiene products.
HELP! I forgot: Diapers…
Oh baby…you’re gonna be in a world of hurt without diapers and baby supplies! What to do? No worries, you can find diapers and various other baby items throughout the resort in hotel gift shops as well as at baby care centers throughout the four theme parks. You’ll be more likely to find a wider selection of baby care items in your hotel gift shop than you will in the parks. You’ll be able to find baby powder, wipes, diaper cream, diapers, and so much more in gift shops on Disney property! No tears! Disney’s got your baby covered…even if you forgot!
From Disney’s website:
Baby Care Centers in Each Park offer on-site shop offering formula, baby food, juice, diapers, wipes, sunscreen, over-the-counter medications and clothing for purchase.
HELP! I forgot: Batteries….
You’ve really got to be plugged in when you are in the parks. From batteries to memory cards, you need to be able to capture the memories and capture the magic! If you forget these items, you are in luck because they can easily be found throughout the parks and resort hotel gift shops. You’ll also be able to find cell phone accessories, like portable chargers, cases, and accessories. Stock up so you don’t leave Disney without the memories.
HELP! I forgot: Asprin…
No matter what your small medicine needs may be (we’re talking over-the counter medicines), Disney’s pretty much got you covered! You can buy everything from heartburn medicine to motion sickness pills, asprin, and more. In fact, you can find other first aid necessities like bandaids, sore muscle cream, and antibacterial cream, and needs for whatever else might ail you. If you’re in the parks and in a pinch find the first aid station for free bandaids, ointments, etc.
HELP! I forgot: Sunscreen…
Sunburn is not a fun thing! That’s why I highly recommend you lather up and protect your precious skin! If you forgot your sunscreen, sunglasses, hats or anything else that might protect you from the scorching sun. You can find sun protection just about everywhere you go throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. You’ll be able to find it at your hotel gift shop, at kiosks around the parks, and in various shops throughout the resorts.
No worries if you forget your _____________. You can find just about anything you might need without leaving the magic of the parks. If you find yourself in a forgetful state, don’t fret! You can find it at Disney! So what’s the funniest thing you ever forgot to pack? Share your story with us in the comment section below!
