Do not overlook these extras when packing for Disney

Now that you have all of the essentials set aside and ready to be checked off your packing list, it's now time to make sure you have these "extras" ready to go too. It's important to note that many of these extras are also essentials, but don't truly fit into any of the prior categories. If you decide to use MagicBands for example, you need to make sure you bring them or it defeats the purpose of ordering them. Also, things like your cell phone charger, external chargers, and even a charging station make life easier while you are on vacation.

It might sound stupid, but when you have a wife who constantly throws things into her wallet or purse rather than putting it back in their proper spots, even adding things like your driver's license, insurance card and wallet to the list is important.

If you are going at some point during the summer, it is important to remember to bring cooling towels and misting fan. You can buy these things at Disney World, but they will cost you way more than if you purchase them ahead of the time and pack them.

A few other things to consider are things like gum, your laptop and/or tablet, ponchos, books to read while at the pool or even a book that you can read in line that involves your entire party. Something like a riddle book, joke book or maybe even a book that helps you find hidden Mickeys.
