As travel agents, we travel A LOT so we know what the best products are to make traveling easier.
Below are our favorite things you need for every trip!
Our Favorite Travel Backpack
This Vera Bradley backpack is roomy enough for anything you'll need while flying, road-tripping, or navigating the Disney parks. We love that you can throw it in the washing machine and it looks like new after. The material is water repellent so if you get caught in a rainstorm, your things will stay dry. It's complete with a ventilated pouch for shoes, a padded laptop compartment, and trolley sleeve to make your airport time easier.
You can even feel good about your purchase because it's made of recycled plastic water bottles.
Our Favorite Walking Sandals
Oofos are recovery shoes, so they are made to be gentle on your feet and put less stress on your joints. They come in several different colors, and are available on Amazon or your local running store.
The Oofos original sandal are available in styles for men and women. Several of the agents on our team suffer from Plantar Fasciitis and they said these sandals allow them to walk pain-free all over Disney World!
Our #1 Bathroom Must-Have
Traveling with men can be fun but also stinky, so we recommend stocking up on this "Before you go" spray. It will knock out any smells so you can enjoy your vacation without having to ask for a courtesy flush.
Our Favorite Sleep Machine
This white noise machine blocks out noise from hotel neighbors, outside, or snoring husbands. With small kids, it's a gamechanger. It has 24 natural soothing sounds, a timer, usb port, and headphone jack. We love how portable it is for traveling.
Our Favorite Pop-Up Hamper
We all agreed that a pop-up hamper is a must-have when traveling. This way our dirty clothes are in one place and not all over the room. When you are a family of 5 sharing a 300sqft room, it gets tight. Organization is key!
This popup hamper from Amazon is durable and folds flat for easy packing.
Our Favorite Portable Battery Pack
Apple's MagSafe technology provides a magnetic connection between your device and an accessory. This battery pack is small but powerful. This should charge your phone from dead to 60% pretty quickly. We found it cheaper on Amazon than direct with Apple. We love how small it is and easy to carry.
Our Favorite Packing Cubes
Packing cubes are an absolute must have when traveling. I don't know how we traveled without them before. It's so easy to divide your items into cubes then drop the cube in the dresser at the hotel. These are also great for doing water parks with kids and having to carry along swimsuits during the day.
Our Favorite Water Bottle
Stainless Steel water bottles are great for keeping liquids cold on a hot day. We love these bottles because they have the paracord handle with clip so you are hands free. Moms are always the ones holding everything so clip this to your bag and go.
Our Favorite Toiletry Bag
Having a hanging toiletry bag can make your life so much easier when you are in a cramped bathroom with minimal counter space. We love the Vera Bradley ones because they are durable, washable, and so cute!
Our Favorite Swimsuit
We chose this swimsuit by Tempt Me as our favorite because it's universally flattering on every woman. It offers tummy control and ruching that hides imperfections. It comes in a variety of colors and sizes and runs true-to-size.
Our Favorite Beach Bag
When you are at the beach, you need a cute bag to carry all your things. This adorable rattan tote is the perfect size for the beach or the pool. It will hold a towel, your sunnies, sunscreen, and extra change of clothes, and your wallet. You will be beach ready and look so cute!
Our Favorite Sunscreen
When you have little ones with allergies, you have to be mindful of the ingredients in sunscreen. Neutrogena Wet Skin Kids is the number one Dermatologist recommended sunscreen. The spray is perfect for the beach or the pool and offers sun protection that lasts up to 80 minutes. The corresponding face stick is non-greasy and perfect for throwing in your purse when on the go. We love that these can be applied on wet or dry skin.
