    What Disney items are best to buy before a trip to already have upon arrival and which are best to wait and purchase at disney?

    Hi, Stacie!  I usually have rain ponchos with me as well as autograph books.  Those are things that you could possibly need right away, depending on your schedule.  I know people who arrive and immediately head to a dining reservation at places like Chef Mickey's, and they haven't had time to grab an autograph book.

    If you're trying to stay on a strict budget, you might want to pick up a couple of souvenirs.  Even on trips where we are going to splurge a little, I pack a few Disney themed things in a bag, and put them out for my kids while they sleep, so they have a little pixie dusted surprise when they wake up. 

    Pretty much everything else you'll want, you can get at Walt Disney World! 

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation!
