This is it friends! I cannot believe the time has finally arrived! We leave for Disney this week! After planning this trip since February 2018 and sharing it with you all since October 2018, I am so ready to go! I thought I would bring you one last post about my final haul on everything I’ve purchased the last few weeks for our trip. I shopped on Amazon and all the links to the products are listed within my post. So, here we go!

Travel Must Haves
I’m not sure how you lose packing cubes but I did! I could only find two of my previous sets and that wasn’t enough for what I need them for. I had to reorder another set from Amazon Basic’s line. I picked the blue color to try to match the two remaining cubes I have and they came very close. I love to use these; I find that it makes my luggage more manageable and organized.
I have so many toiletry bags but I love to have a variety of sizes and shapes for my traveling needs. This one is for my husband and it’s perfect for what he wants to take.
I may be doing a few Tinkerbelle gifts for the boys, if time allows, so I found some cute things to put in their gift bags. If not, I think these will keep them occupied on the drive down.
Mickey Mouse Mad Libs / Toy Story Mad Lib – I remember these activity sets from when I was kid and always loved them. I think the boys will love these!
Disney Travel Journal: For Kids – Alex has really been into taking pictures with his little camera and writing down his memories (not sure who he gets that from 😊) so, when I saw this, I knew he would enjoy being able to put his pictures and recording his memories in it.
Kids Baseball Cap for Boys Ages 2-7, Mickey Mouse, Pack of 2, Little Kids and Toddler Baseball Hat – I’m not sure if Michael is going to keep this on his head but I thought they were too cute to pass up! I am certain Alex will at least use one of them, if not both.
Disney Mickey & Gang Black Lanyard with Card Holder – These were perfect for what I need them for. I’m not expecting much pin trading to take place but, just in case, I wanted to be prepared. I purchased a few pins for each of them, although, I highly doubt Michael will keep this on.
Beauty & Bath
Hask Argan Oil shampoo & conditioner set, Combo – This is not a travel size item but, I’ve been using this duo for a couple of months and it’s my favorite. I love the smell and the way my hair looks and feels after using it.
Johnson & Johnson Brand Safe Travels Portable First Aid Kit for Minor Wound Care with Assorted Adhesive Bandages, Ideal for Travel, Car & On-the-Go, 70 pieces – We needed a new first aid kit for the car. I didn’t want anything too large but needed enough of the basic first aid supplies. This one is great! It’s small enough to throw in a backpack for the parks.
Dr. Scholl’s Moleskin Plus 3 Each (Pack of 3) – I wanted to be prepared in case anyone in our family is experiencing any blistering. I know I have sensitive feet so, better safe then sorry. I heard from other Disney travelers, that it’s great to keep these on hand.
Dr Teal’s Epsom Salt Soaking Solution, Chamomile, 48 Ounce – Maybe I’m going over the top but I’m throwing in this Epsom Salt into my luggage. First, again, I always have issues with my feet. Second, I just love the scent of this!
CeraVe 100% Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 | Face Sunscreen with Zinc Oxide & Titanium Dioxide for Sensitive Skin | 2.5 oz, 1 Pack – I love all CeraVe products and I always like to have a separate sunscreen for my face.
CeraVe Travel Size Toiletries Skin Care Set | Contains CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, Lotion, Foaming Face Wash, and Hydrating Face Wash | Fragrance Free – Since we are driving, I take all my full-size skin care products; however, we stay one night on our way down at a hotel. I usually take a smaller toiletry bag with me, so these travel-size products are going to be perfect. If you haven’t tried any CeraVe products, I highly recommend them!
Kitsch Microfiber Hair Towel Wrap for Women, Hair Turban for Drying Wet Hair, Easy Twist Hair Towels (Blush) – I always use these on the days I am not washing my hair. They are great because you can wash them with your towels and they are lightweight on your head. I used to try to manage balancing a towel on my head. Forget it. It never quite worked out the way I wanted it to.
Erase Your Face – Reusable Makeup Removing Cloths ~ Facial Care Set (Mint Green Cloth) – I bought these a few months ago because I was tired of my make-up staining my towels. These are super soft and great for traveling. You can also throw them in the wash!
Gillette Venus Snap with Extra Smooth Women’s Razor Handle + 1 Refill – I’ve never tried the travel-size; I’m hoping it’s just as good as the regular size Venus razor. I’ll let you know. 😊
White Rain Kids Pure Splash 3 in 1 Shampoo/Conditioner/Body Wash 26.5 fl. oz. Pump – I love the smell of this and Alex does, too. So, it’s a win-win! Michael has sensitive skin and eczema so I use the Dove Sensitive for him.
Anker PowerCore 10000, One of The Smallest and Lightest 10000mAh External Batteries, Ultra-Compact Portable Charger, High-Speed Charging Technology Power Bank for iPhone, Samsung Galaxy and More – I did get one of these for Christmas but I wanted to have an extra one as well. I already tested it out the last few months and it works great!
ChargeHub X7-7-Port USB Charger Desktop Charging Station 2.4A Per Port/44W – SmartSpeed Technology for iPhone X/8/7/6 Plus, iPad, Galaxy S9/S8/S7, Nexus, LG & Other Devices – Round (Clear) – I purchased this because, to be honest, I couldn’t stand all the wires all over every room of our house. Between the cell phones and tablets, I thought it would be best to have one place for all of them to charge at one time. This is perfect! I loved it when I purchased it. It came in a marble color. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find that color but this does have other color options to choose from. I believe this will come in handy when we get back from the parks; everything can be plugged in at the same time.
Gratitude 540: A Collection of Short Stories: Expressing Gratitude for Those That Make Us Who We Are – If you are wondering why I am adding this book to my last Disney haul, it’s because I just received this as a gift from one of the contributors to the book, Melanie Rose. I was so surprised to see this in my mailbox last week but I am also so happy for Melanie. Melanie has always been a very gifted and talented writer and I love reading her stories. In this collection of short stories, Melanie shares her story about adopting her daughter, Tia, from China. I always admired her determination in becoming a mom and she is one of the best! I met Melanie in 1989 in California when the two of us were working for a few Daytime actors on the daytime soap opera, “General Hospital.” Since then we have been best friends. Next week, while I am away at Disney, Melanie will be taking over my blog. In just a few months, Melanie’s blog, “The M Word,” will be going live and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity for you to meet her. I’ll be taking this book with me to read all the short stories on my drive down to Florida. I’ve done a little peeking into the book already and. I must tell you, if you pick up this book, you will not be sorry.
This is it for my pre-Disney Haul! I can’t believe it’s this week! I’ll be writing all about my trip! Please be sure to follow me on my social media as I will be sharing my Disney trip with you all! Please comment below if there is anything I should run out and buy right away! I’m sure I forgot something!
