So, you need ideas for Disney Gifts…
The leftovers from Thanksgiving are just about gone and it’s time to get serious about holiday gifts. I received several texts just this morning asking for gift ideas, both for myself and for the kids. I always ask for Disney gifts that either help with WDW vacations or hold me over until my next one.
So, if you have a Disney fanatic in your midst, or if you ARE the fanatic, the following ideas should give Santa all he needs to know this holiday season!!
Portable Chargers (USB)
This is the first thing in our bag when we start to pack for our Disney World trips. Between spotty wifi, photo taking, and constant use of My Disney Experience, your smartphone battery is going to be empty by mid-afternoon (or earlier). Grab one or two of these for your next trip.
–Compact : Anker PowerCore+ mini, 3350mAh Lipstick-Sized Portable Charger
This “lipstick” portable charger is great because it’s compact and recharges fast. It only has about one full re-charge for a normal smartphone battery.
While this charger will take up more room in your bag (not that much), it holds about 4 charges for a smartphone and has two USB ports for charging more than one device at one time.
Water Bottle (with filter)
– LifeStraw Go Water Filter Bottle
To be completely honest, the tap water at Disney World is not the best we’ve ever tasted. I’m not sure what the deal is but I don’t get the warm and fuzzies when I drink the water from the tap. I love love love these water bottles with the filter built in. Just some ice and tap water and it flows right through a filter as you drink from the straw.
What a cute bag for all the Disney ladies out there! It’s things like this that can get you from one Disney trip to the next. Subtle (or maybe not so subtle) reminders of the magic that awaits you on your next vacation… and that is really one of the best Disney gifts you can give!
Mickey Waffle Maker
–Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker
It’s sad but true.. We can’t be at Disney World ALL the time. However, we can eat Mickey Waffles all the time! No further explanation needed 🙂
Mickey Light Show (House projector)
You may need to make this one an early present so it can be used this Christmas season!
These decorative house projectors have become so popular in the past couple of years and it’s easy to see why. Plug it in and you have instant holiday spirit with a Disney twist (anyone else just get goosebumps?)
Some of you may be looking for Disney Gifts for yourself. First of all, good for you! Here are a couple items I get asked for recommendations the most.
One place you do NOT want to skimp on your Disney vacation is with strollers. Finding the perfect combination of portability (getting on and off buses), and cruiseability (MILES of walking) is not easy, but these strollers should fit the bill.
–BOB 2016 Revolution FLEX Jogging Stroller
This stroller is a great combination of tough but lightweight which is a must when strolling your child ALL day.
The large wheels also make for a pleasant ride which will make everyone happier, especially when it’s time for the inevitable stroller nap.
–2014 Summit X3 Double Jogging Stroller
I know some of you out there are in need of a double stroller. This one has all the attributes of the stroller above but accommodates two.
While it’s always going to be difficult to get on and off of Disney buses with a double stroller, this one isn’t as heavy as some of the others.
This is a great piece if you are looking for something with some Disney flare. Portable and easy to roll means you save your back!
If you need something with a little more beef to it, check out:
–HAUPTSTADTKOFFER Luggage Glossy Suitcase Sets
This set of 3 bags is a great investment because they are sturdy and not extremely heavy (until you pack them full of souvenirs to bring home from WDW!).
If you are looking for a nice set of luggage… this is a great start!
I hope this little shopping guide helps… Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us here at DisneyProTips.com!
