Disney fans are excited that the parks in America are re-opening in July. While unfortunately I will not be able to join the crowds for the foreseeable future due to my status as someone who has a lung disease I wanted to put this post together so that others might be helped.

If you are looking for protective items to bring with you to the Disney Parks when they re-open, consider adding any of the follow 5 items:

1. Disney Face Mask

Yes. Face Masks are a requirement for both children and adults and cast members at Disney Parks when they re-open in July 2020. So how about going in style with the adorable face masks to be found on Shop Disney (Official Site)?

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?

3. Lysol Wipes

While Disney is promising more frequent cleanings, you can never known just when the last cleaning was for your table, bench, or attraction.

Lysol wipes provide an extra peace of mind when you can confidently know your table, chair, bench, attraction car, etc., has 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 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.

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 idea 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.)

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!
