    2. A "dad" hat with an embroidered Mickey waffle on it to keep the sun out of your eyes while you scarf down the best breakfast of all time.

    999Spyglass / Etsy

    Promising review: "Couldn’t be happier! Such a great product and the hat is so comfortable. Shop owner was so responsive with questions and help create the perfect hat!" —Meagan Boruchowski

    Get it from 999Spyglass on Etsy for $24.99+ (available in 14 colors and with extra monogramming).

    3. A travel-sized hair brush, for when your hair needs a quick comb-through after riding Space Mountain.


    Promising review: "I picked up my first Tangle Teezer from Sally's and bought another on Amazon for my travel bag. I love it so much, I had to get a dedicated one for traveling for fear of losing my original (or forgetting to bring it)! I have shoulder length hair, and I took for granted how much easier this makes combing post shower wet hair than a traditional toothed comb until I had to use one recently. This really glides through the hair. I wish my mom had one to use on me when I was growing up, I probably wouldn't have 'dreaded' getting my hair combed out!" —M. Starr

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    4. A calendar to help you count down the days until you return to the Happiest Place on Earth.


    Get it from Walmart for $14.99.

    5. A pair of Minnie Mouse–inspired hair clips, so you can rock her classic dots without suffering from the inevitable headache you'd get from wearing actual an ear headband.


    These quirky hair bands work perfectly for adding a touch of Minnie flair to your look whether you're visiting the Parks or hanging out with friends. They're simply adorable.

    Promising review: "Bought these because typical headbands give me headaches. I was pleasantly surprised when I received them. They are of a great quality and I can’t wait to wear them to Disney in December. They are also super secure. My husband and I go every year and these will be in my luggage for every trip in the future." —sophon tuot

    7. Polarized sunglasses that'll look super cool in your photos in front of Cinderella Castle.

    Promising review: "These are fantastic! Not only are they very cute, I'm pretty sure just about anybody can pull these off, AND they are great for the sun. I bought them for a vacation, and didn't realize until I was on the beach how happy I was that I had them. They allow you to actually see in the beach sun without squinting all of the time. I had other sunglasses with me, but once I put these on I never wanted to wear another pair. Now that I'm back from vacation, I wear them daily while driving, or really doing anything else outside. They really are a great pair of sunglasses. I'm sure this won't be the only pair I buy. Love these!" —A.M.

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in 14 styles).

    8. A special magic band inspired by Main Street U.S.A. to make sure you don't get yours mixed up with your travel buddy's.

    9. Toiletry bags featuring a Little Mermaid print, excellent for storing your ~whosits and whatsits galore~.


    Promising review: "Best travel bags for a diaper bag, vacation, or really everyday use. I have these bags in a few different prints and really love how well they work. They are so lightweight, easy to clean and they actually hold a lot more stuff than they look like they could. I recommend them to everyone and hope Bumkins makes additional prints and colors soon!" —Taylor - The Baby Gear Lady

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $12.56 (available in six styles).

    10. An embroidered Mickey T-shirt that features every variation of your favorite mouse and will get you a ton of compliments while you wait on line for "It's a Small World."

    I have this shirt and I cannot say enough about the quality. It's super soft and the details in the embroidery are spectacular — definitely Walt-approved.

    Get it from Fantasyland Apparel for $30 (available in unisex sizes S–2XL, in four styles, and two colors).

    11. A Disney Princess coloring book to keep you entertained whether you're road tripping or flying to WDW.


    Promising review: "Such cute designs! A must for taking up time on the airplane and in the airport while traveling to Disney! My daughter and I had so much fun with these. I suggest gel pens for coloring in these. The sparkle ones make it extra fun. Something for every princess lover. A few non-princess design pages too. Great fun and a good gift for a Disney princess at heart!" —Julia

I used it for our return trip home and the wheels turn effortlessly. It can either be checked or used as a carry-on, I would suggest carrying it on the plane with you so it doesn't get dirty. A must-have for Disney Princess fans!" —117Chloe

    14. Botanical sunscreen you'll love because it won't leave your skin greasy and you can easily apply it in the bathroom before you head off to Epcot's World Showcase.,

    Promising review: "We all loved this Australian Gold Botánical Mineral Sunscreen!! I have never used mineral-based sunscreen and I am so happy I chose this! It works thoroughly, smells amazing, the texture is a little gritty but goes on smoothly, and your skin soaks it in without clogging pores. We used this on our faces as well and I feel it may have even helped correct my complexion! At one time I used makeup over it and it worked well with no flashback exposure or white cast on my face when pictures were taken. I’m a loyal customer now!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.39+ (available in SPF 30 or 50).

    15. A "Thank U, Rex" pin you can either barter with for an even more epic pin or you can wear like a badge of honor as you trek through the park.

    16. And a Mickey Mouse lanyard, perfect for putting ALL of your coveted pins on display.

    Promising review: "Works great for trading pins at the parks. The Mickey is more of what I call a 'modern' Mickey but it is still super cute. The material is smooth and silky and I was very comfortable wearing this around my neck at the parks all day." —Katie T

    17. Snow White pajamas you can snuggle up in and head off to dreamland after you've finished watching the Happily Ever After fireworks show.

    18. A Chewbacca seatbelt cover, guaranteed to keep you comfortable during your family road trip to check out Star Wars Land., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love the comfort of this seatbelt cover as I have a pacemaker and this item provided comfort. I recommend this product for the cushion it provides AND it looks so clever on the seatbelt. The cover moves easily over the seatbelt as it is unhooked. Great idea for me and driving is no longer a struggle keeping the seatbelt pressure off my pacer.... an issue I've had since I was very young. For those without a pacemaker, this item is so cute on the seatbelt, a real conversation piece. Try it for yourself and you'll understand how much I like it." —tim sager

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    19. A chic "Diamond in the Rough" jewelry set inspired by Aladdin, so you don't have to think twice about accessorizing and can head right over to breakfast.

    TheLoveofPixieDust / Etsy

    Anyone who frequents the Disney Parks is familiar with the many Starbucks located around the property. The cups they use there are super cute and you can often have your name written (correctly!) with a Mickey or Minnie next to it. Carry that kind of magic around with you no matter where you are by purchasing this spectacular tumbler! You can even request a character of your choice to make it extra special.

    Promising review: "Love these! I have the rose gold on my rose gold phone and it is a definite asset. Following a stroke, I have little strength or function in my left hand so I was frequently dropping my phone. This ring makes it easier to hold my phone and works great as a stand for viewing videos. I love the two-pack — I am giving the gold one to my BFF, a Disney fan." —Abby Kadabby

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in six styles).

    27. A Haunted Mansion fanny pack you'll need to hide from the Hitchhiking Ghosts because they'll want one too.


    The mantra of the Haunted Mansion is that it's filled with 999 happy haunts but there's room for one more — this also applies to Disney-related accessories. This faux-leather bag is inspired by the wallpaper of my all-time favorite ride, so you better believe I (and any other Disney fan) would be thrilled to rock this any day of the week.
