Chloë here. Today i’m going to talk about what i think are backpack Essentials for when you’re going to Disneyland Paris or any other Disney park really. Some people may take other things but when i last went i took all of this in my backpack.
First of all you are going to need a cute backpack which is above all comfortable to wear; I had a green brown Mickey Mouse one last time I went and it was cute but the straps weren’t too comfortable and made my neck hurt. So the important thing for a backpack is that it has to be comfortable.
Then second the most important things your tickets, because how else would you get in. Your wallet, really important if you wanna buy stuff and I think a portable charger is really helpful to charge your phone and I would take a camera with you to make nice pictures of everything, you could also do this on your phone but a camera is also fun!
When I go away for a day I like to bring something like ibuprofen in case I get a headache or feel a little sick suddenly, I also take tissues with me and some hand sanitizer in a small bottle. Maybe if you think it will come in handy take some wet wipes in case your or someone else’s hands get dirty or sticky especially when you are in a group where there are children, wet wipes will save the day.
Then you will need some other things like snacks and drinks, If you like you can bring a water bottle, you can ask for free water in restaurants (if it’s hot outside they have to give it to you) but there are also water fountains where you can refill them any time. For snacks I wouldn’t grab things that will get sticky fast because when it’s in your backpack for a day it will get sticky even when it’s not hot outside, I brought a bag of candy and after one day it all sticked together. I would recommend something like chips or cookies and even sandwiches. Also I like to bring a rain poncho, because it’s not really nice to get your clothes all wet when it’s raining a lot.
And if you’re a big kid like me bring your autograph book with you, don’t forget a pen or two and I would recommend getting thicker pens because it’s easier to hold for the characters. And I can’t forget the most fun thing Minnie mouse ears! You will have them on most of the time but sometimes you can’t wear them in a ride so it’s nice to have a backpack to put them in and it’s super fun to wear them!
Also don’t forget to bring extra socks with you, it’s nice to change socks when your feet are all sweaty or got wet because of rain or a water ride.
Last but not least things to take with you for when it’s hot outside. When I went last year it was in the middle of summer so it was pretty hot and I liked to have some sunscreen in my bag, I intent to burn quickly so yea that came in handy. Also I took an extra t shirt because it’s nice to change when you’re all sweaty. Also I would take some sunglasses when the sun is shining bright, I did take mine but hardly put it on because I have glasses and it gets annoying to change glasses every time we went into a ride.
This might seem like a lot of stuff but I think these are the most important things to take on a Disney trip. I hope this will be helpful for you and don’t forget things now when you’re going on a Disney trip and to help you with that down below you will find a checklist so you can’t forget anything!
Lots of love,
