Staying Disney World or heading to any amusement park means access and confrontation with many different germs. There is really no way to avoid this, as with the Orlando Disney World theme park, thousands walk through the gate daily, bringing any germs they may have with them. For mothers and fathers considered about exposure to disease or other germy substances, make sure to pack portable hand sanitizers and anti-bacterial lotions that your children can use throughout the day at Disney World. This can be a great way to protect your hands from coming into contact with germs as well as provide a helping tool when meal preparation is upon you and a location to wash dirty hands is not.
It may sound silly, but of course you will need loads of clothing for your trip. However, one thing that many wish that they had had with them is stamps. Stamps can be great things to pack in your purse because you can have your children fill out a postcard or letter to send back to friends and family and have the stamp on the spot so all you will have to do is drop it into the mail. This way you can make sure that your friends far away from Orlando know just how much fun you are having on your Disney World trip throughout the stay.
One of the most important things that you can pack with you on your Orlando trip is bug repellant. Bug repellant is important to protect the skin and the body from any itchy or painful bites that can cause irritation on the rest of the trip. Bug repellant may be available on site but can be a bit more expensive so you may want to pack some extra before you head to Disney World.
