Planning a Disney vacation with your family? Chances are that you will need new gear to make your trip a success. Having functional and practical travel gear is very important, but there’s no reason that gear can’t be a little bit cute and in the Disney spirit too. With Disney travelers in mind, I went out on a mission to find the must-have Disney themed travel gear that will make the logistics of your Disney trip easier. Now you can stuff everyone’s stockings with some Disney-inspired and useful gear that you can use while traveling to Orlando or Anaheim (or aboard Disney Cruise Line, to Aulani, or beyond).
This list has everything from Mickey to all things Star Wars. Many of the gifts work just as well for adults as they do for kids. What’s even better is that everything on this list is under $25 to help you stick to your holiday budget.

Put a little Minnie cuteness into your morning pre-parks makeup routine with this inexpensive tote. Great for packing toiletries and makeup for all kinds of travel.
Ever had your phone die in a Disney park at a totally inopportune moment? Give it an emergency charge with these tiny smartphone battery powered chargers. Originally sold by Thinkgeek, these chargers are in short supply on Amazon and Ebay so definitely buy them this year or miss them forever!
Have a Star Wars-loving frequent flyer in the family? This adorable passport case keeps your most important travel document protected. Perfect for anyone planning a Disney Cruise on DCL’s many international itineraries too!
Keep your kids’ cash and gift cards safe in Disney style while touring the parks. These wallets come in tons of different character varieties from Frozen to BB-8, so it’s easy to find your child’s favorite.
Another way to tag your luggage in Disney style to easily spot it on airport bag carousels. Plus, you can personalize this luggage tag with your name with the leather ID tag attached.
True classics. Get your mouse ears ready for your next trip, especially for your little ones visiting the parks for the very first time.
Disney vacations rarely go perfectly – minor scrapes and blisters are unfortunately par for the course. Although you can always get first aid essentials in the parks at Disney’s first aid centers, having a small first aid kit in your park bag is helpful and saves you a trip for minor boo-boos.
Collapsible water bottles are perfect for space-saving in your Disney daypack. Refill in the park for free and save a ton of money over buying bottled water.
Whenever my family travels to Disney parks, I often pick up one of these reusable tote bags. These bags are high quality, eco-friendly, and help put you in a Disney mood every time you head to the grocery store. Use them in the parks for storing extra or wet stuff too.
This slim wallet and ID case is the perfect taste of Disney magic for holding a few credit cards or some cash while traveling – or your park tickets or Photopass card on a Disney trip!
Disney gives Walt Disney World travelers lots of ways to wear their MagicBands. If you have a kiddo who just doesn’t like wearing a band (or you don’t yourself!), you can put this on your keychain or lanyard instead.
Keep yourself occupied with a card game on the road to your next Disney vacation. These high quality playing cards feature classics characters from a variety of movies.
Imagine Ink drawing pads are awesome for travel with young kids because the markers only work on the magic paper. No mess on kid hands or on other surfaces. These can buy you lots of time on planes and on road trips!
Use this cute backpack for storing wet bathing suits or towels after water rides or extra souvenirs. Or it can function well for a parks bag for your kids.
What Disney trip would be complete without character autographs? The Disney official autograph books are the best on the market because the paper is thick enough that a clickable Sharpie (easy for character hands to grip) won’t show through. Note: Be sure to get this on the Disney Store website or in the parks because most other retailers (Amazon etc.) have a big markup!
