disneyland must-haves!

for our 6th birthday, the ban.do girl gang took a trip to disneyland. wait what? you haven’t seen our disneyland video? it’s pretty magical. a couple of us are die hard disney fanatics so we thought it would be cool to share our must-haves for a day at disney! we couldn’t have made it through the day without the following items:

flip side clutch: it’s disneyland…you’re going to be walking around ALL day. the last thing you want to do is carry a huge backpack. our flip side clutch worn as a cross body is perfect for all the day’s necessities.

heart shaped sunnies: because it’s bright out and you wanna look as cute as possible, right?

evian mineral water spray (travel size): it’s small and compact and when you’re waiting in line and it’s hot…it’s a total lifesaver!

simple revitalizing eye roll on: it’s cooling and wakes you up at the end of the day!

disneyland button: did you know that lost and found (located right outside the park) will give you a FREE  button if you ask for one? ours said “i’m celebrating!”

ban.do back me up mobile charger: no joke, all of our cell phones ran out of power around lunchtime. luckily, a few gals had our mobile chargers and it totally saved the day!

vitamin b12 – these little babies dissolve under your tonge and give you a little boost of energy and helps clear your mind…disneyland is kind of overstimulating if ya know what we mean.

iphone + case: you’re going to be taking tons of instagram pictures so you might as well have a cute case on your phone!

neutrogena ultra sheer sunscreen: sunburns are NOT fun.

minnie mouse ears: a sequin minnie headband? it’s just too awesome not to own.

if you have other disneyland must-haves, we’d love to hear about them! and, if you wanna see more pictures of our fieldtrips or just our daily life in the studio, make sure you’re following us on instagram!
