15+ Gifts To Give Someone Visiting Disney World
A Disney World vacation is a dream for many. And that’s an expensive dream. So a gift they can find useful during their trip is perfect and will excite them even more.
Without further ado, here are my recommendations:
1. Disney MagicBand
Disney MagicBand is a wristband that allows guests to enter parks and resorts and make purchases quickly and conveniently. It links up with the My Disney Experience app with just a tap.
All the things linked with the account on the app for the trip can be accessed through MagicBand. And these bands come in amazing designs, and kids will love them!
What else does Disney MagicBand do? Well, you can purchase Disney PhotoPass images with it. Plus, there are many colors and design choices to choose from!
2. Walt Disney World: The Official Vacation Guide
With smartphones, it’s pretty easy to discover things about your destination. But some people like doing it old school with a handy guide.
Birnbaum’s Walt Disney World: The Official Vacation Guide can be the perfect gift for people visiting the park for the first time. This detailed guide, updated annually, can make the experience smooth and hassle-free.
What you won’t find online but will in this guide are interesting facts about rides displayed with colorful illustrations. That way, kids can learn more about their Disney adventures.
While Birnbaum’s Guide is official, some unofficial guides are just as good.
3. Mickey Mouse Theme Luggage
A practical yet fun gift idea for someone visiting Disney World is Disney-themed luggage. The American Tourister Disney Hardside Luggage with colorful Mickey Mouse print is the best, in my opinion.
It’s a two-piece set with an 18-inch carry-on and 21-inch spinner luggage that can be checked on flights. You can also find other sizes.
This is from American Tourister so you can be sure about the quality. The zippers and straps are all sturdy. And even the inner liner fabric has a subtle Mickey print.
4. Mickey Mouse Backpack for Kids
If you’re looking for something more budget-friendly for kids heading to Orlando for a Disney World trip, consider gifting this Mickey Mouse drawstring backpack.
While there are endless choices when it comes to Disney backpacks for kids, what I like about these particular drawstring bags is that they are not very childish. So you can buy them for teens as well.
The bag is made of Nylon, which is water-resistant. And the size is just appropriate (14 x 10 inches) to accommodate all the essentials like a water bottle, camera, snacks, phone charger, etc.
5. Disney Headbands
One of the most fun things to do at any Disney park is to wear Disney-themed headbands and click pictures. I know it’s very cliche, but is there any better way to create memories for the trip?
Kids, in particular, love Mickey and Minie headbands with ears. So if you’re looking for a gift for a very excited kid about to visit Disney World, a cute headband would make a fantastic choice.
You can find plenty of headband designs in the Disney store. Go crazy!
6. Disney-Themed Waterbottle
Another practical gift that will find use almost every day and not just at the parks is a reusable water bottle. My favorite is the Simple Modern Stainless Steel Bottle with a straw lid.
It comes in various cool Disney-themed prints, like Starry Jasmine, Belle’s Garden, and Cars Ka-chow.
The bottle is BPA-free and dishwasher-safe. Plus, it will save the guests money as they can refill their bottles at water-filling stations across the Disney World parks.
7. Disney Travel Neck Pillow
Neck pillows are great for air travel and road trips. So whether your loved ones drive to Disney World or take a flight, they’ll love having a cozy, comfy neck pillow.
The Concept One Disney Disney Mickey Mouse Travel Neck Pillow is comfy and incredibly adorable. It also has the iconic Mickey ears. You can find several design variations to choose from!
8. Disney Swimsuit
If you’re looking for a gift for a little girl visiting Disney World to meet her favorite princess, I’d suggest getting a fun swimsuit.
There are two water parks and many pools around Disney World. So chances are she’ll take a dip and would love to wear this Minnie Mouse one-piece swimsuit.
There are several fun design choices, and it’s made of quality fabric that offers UV protection.
If you’re looking for a swimsuit for boys, I’d recommend the very cool Disney Mickey Mouse swim trunks.
9. Instant Camera
An instant camera would make a great gift for anyone visiting Disney World as they can instantly take pictures and create memories of their trip.
The FujiFilm Instax Mini 11 Instant Camera is one of the most popular. It’s affordable, portable, and comes in fun colors.
It also has a one-click selfie mode that Disney World visitors can use to take selfies in front of the iconic Cinderella’s Castle.
They can use it even after their Disney World journey to capture fun moments at home or during travels.
10. Solar-Charging Power Bank
Want to give a gift that’s practical and sustainable? How about a power bank with a solar charging battery? The Feeke Solar Power Bank provides a 36,800 mAh charging capacity.
It charges devices pretty fast using the energy collected through a solar panel on its outside. But it can also be plugged in via USB to an outlet.
Moreover, it’s equipped with a flashlight for emergencies. And if that’s not impressive enough, there’s also a built-in compass.
11. Disney-Themed Reusable Snack Bags
A trip to Disney World can be long and energy-consuming. Having snacks on hand can be a great way to keep the energy up for all that walking.
Plus, bringing snacks to the parks (which is allowed) can save money because snacks at Disney parks are expensive.
So gift your loved ones visiting Disney World the Bumpkins Reusable Snack bags with colorful Disney character prints.
These snack packs are washable, food-safe, and feature a zipper to keep the snacks fresh. There are single, double, and three-pack varieties to choose from.
12. Disney World Coloring Book
The Art of Coloring: Walt Disney World is a coloring book with 100 images from the parks for the kids.
This will keep the kids occupied on their way to Disney World and in their room. And believe me, the kid’s parents will thank you!
Although it’s a coloring book, there’s also some text to educate kids about Walt Disney World. So the kids will also learn a bit about the Disney universe.
13. Disney World Secret Books
There’s so much to do at Disney World that exploring all the parks can take over a week.
But even then, some things may remain a secret for most visitors but not those who get their hands on the book Walt Disney World’s Hidden Mickeys and Hidden Surprises: A Field Guide to Walt Disney World’s Best Kept Secrets.
Did you know there are hidden images of Mickey all over Disney World? Guests can use this guidebook to hunt for these images and discover other secrets to make their trip even more fun.
This is the best gift for those who love Scavenger hunts, as the book has six hunts.
14. Disney Princess Costume
A visit to Disney World cannot be complete without a meet and greet with the many Disney Princesses.
From Cinderella to Elsa, kids can meet cast members dressed as princesses to take photos and autographs. But what can make the experience even better is if the little girl herself dresses as a princess.
The Disney Princess Dress-Up Trunk comes with four costumes for princesses, including Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, and Snow White.
The kit comes complete with all the princess accessories. Any girl who loves Disney princesses will adore this gift!
15. Disney T-Shirts
Disney-themed t-shirts will make a fun present for kids and adults visiting Disney World. They can wear t-shirts around the parks and show their Disney spirit.
You can find Disney t-shirts for men and women in the Disney store. Plenty of cool options exist, from the classic Mickey Mouse to fan-favorite Star Wars.
You can also find cool, colorful Disney clothing for kids. They would love to wear t-shirts, shorts, pajamas, and even socks with their favorite Disney characters on them.
If you want to buy something for the whole family, I recommend Disney t-shirts.
16. Matching Disney Caps
I can’t think of a better gift for moms and dads visiting Disney World with their kids than matching Disney Mom and Dad caps.
These caps are super fun to wear with Mickey’s ears on dad’s and Minnie’s ears on mom’s.
These caps will protect mom and dad from the Florida sun, so it’s quite a thoughtful gift.
17. Mickey Mouse Waist Bag
A waist bag comes in very handy during vacations. For a trip to Disney World, a Mickey Mouse Waist Bag is the ideal accessory. This unisex waist bag can keep essentials like phones, power banks, sanitizers, wipes, etc.
It will also ensure all the belongings are safe while on the rides. What I like about this fanny pack is that it’s not costumey but pretty cool.
So there you go; your gift-giving problem has been resolved. You will be making someone’s trip to Disney World very special.
From t-shirts to water bottles to luggage, you can find many Disney-themed merchandises that can make a thoughtful and useful present for someone visiting Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, or any other parks at Disney World.
