So, we’ve put together a list of items you might want to stash in your suitcase or park bag in case of emergencies!
We’ve broken up our must-have emergency item list into three different types of emergencies you might have while in Disney World: weather, medical, and miscellaneous emergencies. And as a bonus, all of these items are available on Amazon. Let’s take a look!
For starters, be prepared for rain. You seriously never know when you’re going to be hit by an unexpected Florida shower.

Luckily, each Disney park has a First Aid Station for minor emergencies like bumps and bruises. But, you’re going to be walking a lot in Disney World and if you’re not used to it (or even if you are!) your feet can be sore and tired by the time you get back to your hotel room.
For sore feet and any other pain you might want to consider tossing a pain reliever like ibuprofen or acetaminophen in your bag — we like these Advil Liqui Gels.
