15 ESSENTIALS FOR EVERY DISNEY FAM
I’m a few weeks away from having my sweet baby boy here and have been spending the last months preparing for everything from nursery safety to special occasion outfits. I’ve been reading books upon books mentally preparing for labor and for those first few weeks with baby Landon at home but what I’m most excited about is becoming a DISNEY MOM! There’s something so special about sharing the magic of Disney with your little ones and seeing the wonder and joy in their eyes and I can’t wait for the first family vacation where I get to hold him on Main Street and watch the fireworks together for the first time!
Here’s a round-up of my top picks for all things Disney baby! All of the must-haves and magical extras for your bundle of JOY!
FOR THE NURSERY
POTTERY BARN KIDS MICKEY COLLECTION
Pottery Barn carries the cutest selection of Mickey must-haves for the sweetest nursery! From sheets and bedding to this black and white activity gym perfect for newborns. The collection may not be the cheapest option for nursery decor the prices are not outrageous and the quality is incredible!
Lambs & Ivy Bedding and Essentials
The Lambs & Ivy brand carried by Target has affordable, quality nursery sets for a range of Disney themes! I love these because it makes planning a nursery theme a breeze by having all of the essentials and accessories in one place. From crib sheets to mobiles, matching blankets and plush!
FOR BABY’S SOFT SKIN
Kohls has a surprisingly great collection of onesies, swimmies, and sets for babies. You can’t beat their sales and discounts, especially in store! The Disney Jumping Beans onesies in particular are my personal favorite (like this cute Pooh bear romper) because they’re a little bit softer which is super important to me for baby Landon.
TUBBY TODD HAIR AND BODY WASH
I LOVE Tubby Todd because their products are hypoallergenic, ultra gentle for sensitive skin and made with natural fragrances. I’m picky about skincare for my family, and babies especially absorb chemicals that are in skincare products so it’s important to choose high-quality brands like Tubby Todd that have high standards for ingredients. Moms also swear by the all over ointment and baby massage oil for their little ones. Shop here!
CHARACTER HOODED TOWELS
Pottery Barn Kids has the absolute cutest collection of hooded towels for your little one. The Grogu was probably one of the first things I added to the registry for Landon because we LOVE all things baby Yoda but they also have Minnie, Mickey and Pooh!
Here’s a fun tip someone gave me – sit the towel with a heating pad while baby is in the bath so when you wrap them in a hug it’s extra warm when they’re getting out of the bath water!
Aden + Anais swaddles are made of the softest cotton in adorable prints, from Disney Princesses to Winnie the Pooh to OG Mickey prints. I recommend buying some, registering for more, and always being on the lookout for more because they’re also perfect to use as a soft lightweight blanket, as the perfect oversized receiving blanket, or for covering anything from a boppy to a stroller.
FOR MOM AND DAD
MILK SNOB COVERS
These Disney collection car seat covers are so versatile! You can use them for nursing, car seat naps, high chair covers, shopping carts, and more. We have the adorable Toy Story print there are so many to choose from! The best part is they are ultra soft and stretchy so I feel good about having it on baby’s skin. And, super easy to wash!
Bonus: with the Covid virus spreading in hospitals again these covers are a great way to keep baby safer!
THE STURDIEST DIAPER BAGS
Petunia Pickle Bottom bags have been an obsession of mine for YEARS even before I became pregnant! They have the cutest bags including a huge selection of Mickey and Disney Princess prints and they’re built to last with all of the pockets a new mom needs! The Boxy Backpack ($220) and Meta Backpack ($179) are two of their best sellers but they have bags of all sizes for whatever you’re looking for.
STROLLER ORGANIZERS & COOLERS
$20.00 – $79.00
Petunia Pickle Bottom also has a huge selection of stroller organizers, coolers, caddies, belt bags, sling bags and more to make sure all of your little one’s essentials are organized and ready to go. My personal must-haves are the stroller organizer (I have the one pictured and LOVE it!) and Mickey stroller hook so you can easily clip on more bags while you’re on the go.
HALO SLEEP SACKS
The Halo sleep sacks are great for parents because it makes swaddling a breeze and totally helps with the diaper changing process without having to worry about getting a perfect swaddle after to keep baby cozy. Plus the Mickey prints are absolutely adorable!
FOR THE REGISTRY / BABY SHOWER GIFTS
MICKEY MOUSE NEWBORN GIFT SET
A Mickey gift set complete with all of the essentials for your little mouseketeer – including the sweetest booties and baby’s first set of mouse ears! Plus I love the wrap outfits for newborns for easy changing and super cute “bundle of joy” look! The box here is a total bonus so you can store small keepsakes in an adorable Mickey-printed box.
SUPER SOFT BLANKETS
$45.00 – 65.00
Aden + Anais also makes ultra cozy “dream blankets” perfect for strollers or cuddling with your sweet baby. They’re made of the same soft cotton muslin fabric as the swaddles but thicker to keep baby warm.
You can never go wrong with a Disney plush, but these extra large and cuddly characters are extra sweet and soft and make the perfect gift!
FOR THE TODDLER
BUMKINS SNACK BAGS
These reusable snack bags are adorable and eco-friendly! The Pooh print is of course my favorite but there are plenty of options for prints and I love that you get three sizes! Plus they’re waterproof and stain-resistant (an obvious must-have for toddlers!)
BATH TOY FUN
$17.00 – $20.00
Did you know Target has a Disney Store with a huge selection of toys and clothing for the whole family? I love gifting tubby toys for toddlers because bath time is so fun with little ones and you know it’s something they’ll enjoy! Target has the cutest character sets for bath time that come with cute matching buckets for storage and play time!
Hope this list helps to inspire – whether it’s for your own sweet Disney baby or for the perfect magical gift! What are your favorite Disney baby finds?
