Helpful Items To Pack For Your DVC Stay

Embarking on a vacation to a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) resort is an exciting and magical experience. To ensure that your stay is as comfortable and convenient as possible, it’s important to pack the right items. Whether you’re a first-time guest or a seasoned DVC member, here’s a comprehensive list of useful items to pack for your DVC stay.

Portable Phone Charger

A portable phone charger is indispensable for keeping your devices powered up while exploring the parks or enjoying your resort. This ensures that you can capture all your magical moments and stay connected without worrying about battery life. Consider options like a fuelrod, which can be traded in at areas around each park, or a magsafe power bank for cord-free charging.

Power Stations

MagicBand+ needs to be charged to utilize the lights and other functions. In this era where many devices need charging, a power station can be your best friend. Charging stations available on Amazon come in various sizes and colors. Look for a charging station organizer that not only charges your devices but also organizes them neatly. These organizers often fit MagicBand+ chargers and bands perfectly.

Reusable Water Bottles

Staying hydrated is crucial, especially in the Florida heat. Carrying reusable water bottles allows you to refill them at water fountains and hydration stations throughout the resort and parks, saving money and reducing plastic waste. Opt for collapsible water bottles or leak-proof ones like Owala for added convenience.

Snacks and Quick Items

Having a supply of snacks can save time and money. Protein bars, granola bars, bread, peanut butter, jelly, and other quick items can be easily stored in your room or backpack. Check out the DVC resort shop or local delivery services for convenient snack options.

Sunscreen and Sun Protection

Protecting your skin from the sun is essential, so be sure to pack sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses. With long hours spent outdoors, especially in the theme parks, these items are a must for a comfortable and sun-safe experience. Don’t forget to include aftercare items like aloe vera gel for soothing sunburns.

Cooling Towels and Mini Fans

You might be looking for ways to cool down while visiting Disney during the warm months. Pack cooling towels, misting fans, or portable fans to keep you cool during heatwaves. Consider a portable fan that doubles as a mini fan in your room for added comfort.

Ponchos or Compact Umbrella

Florida’s weather can be unpredictable, with sudden showers common, especially during the summer months. Packing compact, lightweight ponchos, jackets, or umbrellas ensures that you’re prepared for any unexpected rain showers without having to purchase expensive rain gear in the parks. You may also want to pack a waterproof bag to store items that get wet or even pool items.

Travel-Size First Aid Kit

A small first aid kit with essentials such as band-aids, antiseptic wipes, pain relievers, blister bandaids, allergy medicine, and motion sickness medication or tools can come in handy for minor mishaps or unexpected headaches during your stay.

Entertainment and Relaxation

Pack items for downtime, such as books, travel games, or portable speakers for music. After a day of excitement, it’s essential to have options for relaxation and entertainment in your accommodations. A small portable speaker can be a fun way to get everyone moving and excited for the day with some Disney tunes! You can also use this portable speaker as a sound machine if you need one during your stay.
