Don't drop the toiletries when planning a Disney trip

If you are staying at a value resort like the All-Stars, then you might want to pack slightly fewer toiletries. The rooms are smaller and that includes the bathrooms. Plus, Disney resorts give you plenty of the basics -- body wash, shampoo, lotions, etc. If you can deal with the limited space or if you are staying at a moderate or deluxe resort, then you might as well bring everything you need.

Before I list the important items everyone needs to remember, let's talk about the unique items that you may or may not decide to bring, but should consider. If you are not used to walking 20,000+ steps in a day, then one thing I highly suggest is some type of anti-chafing product. Personally, I prefer balms that are similar to a deoderant stick. On the Google Sheets checklist, I have this marked as "extra" deoderant. You can change it to something specific or anti-chafing balm if you'd prefer.

COVID-19 might not be as big of a threat anymore, but I still suggest bringing hand sanitizer or some hand-sanitizing wipes. Not necessarily toiletries, but don't forget your glasses and contact lenses. I always pack them with my toiletries because I store them in my bathroom at home.

Here is an itemized toiletries list of what you might need:

  • Hair brush or comb
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Dental floss
  • Shower Essentials (remember they have decent stuff for free)
  • Hair ties
  • Makeup
  • ChapStick
  • Glasses/Contacts
  • Deodorant
  • "Extra" Deodorant
  • Nail clippers
  • Nail file
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Razors (clean and/or electric)
