When it comes to Disney, there is a look that pervades every Purple Wall, Cinderella’s Castle, and Dole Whip inspired Instagram post. It usually involves a Loungefly bag, a ShopDisney ensemble, and a variety of Mickey-shaped food. No shame in that, we’ve been there! But there’s nothing wrong with going off the beaten path for your parks style, especially if it means you can support some Disney small shops at the same time!
Here are some unexpected packable goodies (and clothes!) we recommend for your next Walt Disney World adventure.
If you’re looking for a new one-stop Disney fashionista shop, you need Dapper Digs Trading Co. Not only do they have these amazing glow in the dark villain masks, but they’ve got Disney (and Disney/Broadway mashup!) shirts, Disneyfied masks, and even fun bags to keep your aesthetic magical. This shop is a perfect fit if you love snarky shirts or playful character references because they’ve got both in spades. Who needs matching family shirts when you’ve got a Tiana/” Waitress” shirt?
Make it Minnie
Make It Minnie’s jewelry is the perfect rival to anything you’ll find in the parks, and they won’t cost you a night’s stay in a hotel. Not only are Ashley Wolf’s delicate designs so cute it almost hurts, but her clothing selection is also on point. These gorgeous pieces will be the perfect addition to any park adventure day! There’s a variety of jewelry for every Disney film fan, not just Mickey and pals supporters. Find adorable pieces inspired by “The Lion King,” “Tangled,” “Moana,” and more!
If you are a Starbucks rope dropper (guilty), you need to have Awake chocolates in your day pack. These delectable treats are the best of both worlds – chocolate and caffeine. Each bite-sized piece contains 50 mg of caffeine and is the perfect pick-me-up when the Starbucks line is too long, or you’re already 50 minutes into a 90-minute ride wait. Spoiler alert: the caramel variety is the best one.
Disney park day or not, if you don’t already have a Stojo you need to invest in one! These fantastic cups come in a variety of sizes and types, so you’ll never have to be without a reusable cup again. Stojos fold up into a small disk that makes them perfect travel companions! Even the water bottle style folds up so nicely that it’ll fit into even the most overpacked carry-on or backpack. They’re easy to clean and keep your drinks cold or warm without bulky insulation.
There’s no doubt a day of Disney can be hard on feet. Shoes that rub in the wrong spots can become painful, and trying to retie laces in a crowd is a huge annoyance. Kizik shoes put those less than magical experiences in the past. Not only are these shoes easy to slip on and off, but they’re also form-fitting and supportive. With breathable material, Kizik shoes are almost made for Florida weather. Get your Disney walking on!
Nothing says Disney quite like a magical sweet treat, which is why Kaike’s travel-friendly body products are perfect for the Happiest Place on Earth. These plant-based goodies aren’t just a gimmick; they really do smell exactly like frosting. Their lotions are luxurious and kind to dry over sanitized hands. Who doesn’t want a a little calorie-free sugar in their bags?
Clothes from The Roster are simple, comfy, and full of magic. Each piece comes with a little mantra hidden somewhere so that, whenever you wear it, you have a little something to smile about. Whether it says “never stop dreaming” or “you are beautiful in all your ways,” you’ll always have a lovely saying close at hand. These clothes don’t need flash or pizzaz to make them unique; you are what makes them special!
Now that everyone carries hand sanitizer at all times, we’ve grown accustomed to an endless supply of bottles in our purse. Noshinku is not like other sanitizers, though. Not only is it shaped to fit perfectly in your pocket (yes, even women’s ridiculously small pockets), it’s also made with organic ingredients that stop the dreaded alcohol dry out.
