This year I’m braving the holiday crowds and heading to Disney World for the Fourth of July weekend! While I’m down there, I’m also going to visit Universal Studios to check out the recently expanded home of The Simpsons—Springfield—and did I mention I’ll be celebrating my birthday? It’s bound to be a fun amusement park-filled week! Here’s what I plan on taking along to make the most of my time in Orlando:
1. Longchamp Le Pliage
I love that this bag is water-resistant and that it has a zipper, so I don’t have to worry about things accidentally falling out.
There’s going to be a lot of walking on this trip. My feet are going to need some serious support! I hate wearing sneakers in the summer, so I’m going to wear my trusty FitFlops.
3. Roxy Waterproof Watch
I normally use my cell phone to keep track of the time, but since that’s not exactly waterproof, a watch is an absolute must when I’m wading through Typhoon Lagoon. Plus, it’ll help me keep track of the waves.
It’s going to be hot. Miserably hot. And one thing I hate when it’s that steamy is forgetting to bring a hair tie. I plan to have lots and lots of these bright accessories with me. Bonus: they’ll add a pop of color to my outfit!
6. Triple C Designs iCharge All
The Magic Kingdom will be open until 3:00 a.m., and while I’m there I fully intend on toughing it out to get my money’s worth. But there’s no way my iPhone will make it through the night without a little help. This backup battery is going to be an absolute life saver.
I may love theme parks, but I’m still prone to motion sickness. I’m excited, yet terrified to ride Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey at Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure. I’m hoping these guys will help do the trick.
8. Oribe Superfine Spray - Purse Size
Roller coasters mean flyaways. I’ll definitely need to keep this hairspray on hand to tame the frizzies.
Don’t forget the sunscreen! Check out our SPF picks for the summer.
