Best Gadgets For Disney World

In our connected society, there is vital technology for almost any adventure. And while I’d love to tell you to just “unplug” during the holidays, we all know that’s not the world we live in, even at Disney World! So here are ten tech items you’ll want to pack to make your Disney vacation easier…

Handy Disney essentials to buy before you go

miserable day at EPCOT? A child with a sunburn. Don’t forget this Disney staple, as it’s a pricey purchase at a hotel gift shop or at the Disney parks.

And remember, sunscreen has an expiration date stamped on it. This year, I got my hands on sunscreen in the late summer sale at Target, and I got three bottles of the spray for just $2.99. Buy it before your Disney vacation and save big.

Walt Disney World’s Best Gadgets and Gear for the Parks

  • Shoes: As much fun as running barefoot through the parks sounds like, Disney frowns on that kind of behavior. After about ten minutes, I’m pretty sure you are too. While you may have heard this from many great sources, including the Unofficial Guide to Disney World, wearing a comfortable pair of shoes, preferably designed for walking, may be the smartest thing to do for yourself. Napoleon said that an army marches on his stomach, but it will soon crawl on his stomach if he chooses style over common sense.
  • Sunscreen: Again, this seems like a no-brainer, but it’s essential. My wife and I spent hours and hours in the parks and managed to maintain our pale, white complexions. Seriously, we have to wear long sleeves in The Haunted Mansion to avoid being mistaken for one of the happy haunts.
  • MagicBands – MagicBands are almost ubiquitous these days and feel the magic!

    are practically non-negotiable, which makes their inclusion on this list a mere formality. It’s still possible to visit the parks without using MagicBands, just like it’s possible to go to Epcot and skip Soarin’, or cruise the Styxx River through It’s a Small World and not have that song in your head for the rest of the day. It’s there now, isn’t it? No problem.

Cell Phone Charger

Our Pick Mini Portable Charger $15.99

A compact charger is essential when capturing all your family memories on your phones.

Your DSLR or compact camera

Can you use PhotoPass and Memory Maker to get your Disney World vacation photos? Of course, but everyone wants to have some of their own photos. Also, while it may seem like Disney photographers are all over the park, there are plenty of photo opportunities where there aren’t.

As you can see on our site, we think there are tons of great photos to take of the parks. Disney photographers won’t do this for you, so be prepared to take your own photos of the park.
