Has your countdown to visiting Disney World already begun? Here are some of the things we recommend you squeeze into your travel bag.
You’ll do a lot of walking around Disney World. The theme park provides complimentary travel options to the different parks and Disney Springs. But once you’re inside you’re on your own and in the summer there’s nothing worse than sore feet. That’s why it’s best to opt for a pair of sneakers with memory foam.

It’s far better than needing to carry a waterproof jacket around with you and it will ensure that you can slip them on and off easily.
This is particularly useful for travelers coming to Disney from afar. It quite common for tourists to get ear infections after going underwater on vacation. Anyone who has ever been in Typhoon Lagoon’s awesome and incredible wave pool will tell you that staying above water isn’t really an option. If you want to enjoy an attraction like this and dodge the potentially slim chance of an ear infection, ear protectors are a must. These change to fit the shape of the ear, providing a waterproof block while ensuring you can still hear.
