    Hello! We are preparing for our trip that is coming up in mid-December. We plan to have some items shipped from Amazon, but we were wondering if sunscreen is available for purchase in the gift shops.

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, my Pennsylvania neighbor!

    We often ship a box of supplies or two to our Walt Disney World resort, as this makes the journey there so much easier. Good call!

    Once you arrive at Walt Disney World, you'll find sunscreen available in both spray and lotion forms throughout the resorts and parks as well. We'll ship a box with items we cannot keep in our carry-on bags, sunscreen included, then we will pick up a bottle of sunscreen once we hit the first park or our resort. You'll find this readily available at shops as well as kiosks throughout Walt Disney World; in fact, I had forgotten to bring a can of sunscreen with us on a particularly sunny day last month at Epcot. No worries, though. The first kiosk I came to had three varieties from which to choose. Win-win-win!

    Should you prefer a specific kind of sunscreen, you might want to tuck some of that into the box you are shipping. If not, you'll be just fine with what is available in Walt Disney World park and resort shops and kiosks. So easy!

    Have SO much fun on your upcoming visit, Amanda. What a great time of year to tour Walt Disney World! Send more questions as you plan, too. We love to help!
