Stay safer with these 5 protective items, including Disney Face Masks, you should pack for your next trip to the theme parks.

If you are looking for protective items to bring with you to the Disney Parks, consider adding any of the following 5 items:

1. Disney Face Masks

Yes. Face Masks are a requirement for both children and adults and cast members at Disney Parks. So how about going in style with the adorable Disney face masks to be found on Shop Disney (Official Site)? These Disney Face Masks are so cute and seem to be flying off the digital shelf like hot cakes.

According to Mayo Health, “face masks combined with other preventive measures, such as frequent hand-washing and social distancing, help slow the spread of the disease.

[updated 5/14/21]: While the CDC has made an official change to their recommendations about masks, Disney World has not officially changed any policies. See Crazy Disney Rumors About Masks and Capacity: What’s True and What’s Gossip for their official statement.

2. Hand Sanitizer

Yes, Disney is promising to have hand sanitizer stations but best be safe and have your own stash for the family. You’ll need it for meals, getting off rides, and any rest stops.

So how about a small little bottle you can add to your purse or backpack?

According to the CDC, “If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

3. Lysol Wipes

While Disney is promising more frequent cleanings, you can never know just when the last cleaning was for your table, bench, or attraction. So why not bring your own protective items to provide an extra peace of mind when you can confidently know your table, chair, bench, attraction car, etc., have been cleaned.

And similar to hand sanitizer, a bag of wipes can easily be stashed in your purse or backpack.

4. A Towel or Change of Clothes

After spending a day at a Disney Park, your pants and shirt will likely be dirty and covered in germs from sitting on attractions, at restaurants, and on benches.

Before hopping into your car for the ride home, consider using the most unique of the protective items — a change of clothes (after you’ve finished using all forms of transportation) or bring with you a towel that can cover the seat.

Also when you remember just how many germs are carried on your shoes, you’ll be glad not to drag park germs into your car and family home. Might not seem necessary but these protective items will provide peace of mind and help you avoid catching Coronavirus.

According to the CDC, “It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

5. Disposable Gloves

You’ll be glad you have disposable gloves when you’re cleaning up with your Lysol wipes. They’ll also come in handy when your family gets on the rides at the Disney Parks so you don’t have to worry about cleaning hands after each ride.

Just give each family member a pair of gloves before climbing onto the ride and dispose of them when you’re stepping off the ride.

This specific idea for my protective items list came from watching a video of Disneyland Shanghai where a cast member was visibly handing gloves out just before an indoor roller coaster. So, perhaps, Disneyland and Disney World will follow suit but we won’t know which rides if any until after being in the parks, and by then it is too late to prepare a box of gloves for your family’s use.

According to the CDC, “It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

I hope this has been helpful and that your family has a fun and safe and healthy trip to one of the Happiest Places on Earth! And share with me any pictures of your family wearing those adorable Disney face masks!
