I Always Follow These Tips To AVOID Looking Like a Bridge Troll in Disney World

By admin Jun3,2024

Planning a vacation at Disney World is hard enough, but couple that with the intense heat, sweat, and summer crowds, and you could instantly have a recipe for disaster. While most people believe that planning a vacation at Disney World begins and ends with the logistics of getting your hotel accommodations and park tickets, figuring out your best transportation options, and mastering the art of advance dining reservations and Genie+, oftentimes there’s a whole other element missed in the chaos of it all.

Knowing your stresses, limits, and how certain outside factors physically work against you can be key to understanding how to not only dress for but survive the physical toll being in the Disney World parks can take on your body — without turning you into something that resembles a bridge troll a few hours into your day.

We’re out in the Disney World parks every single day, so who better to take advice from than the folks who are truly the “boots on the ground”! Here’s a peek into all of our favorite things we use to keep us from looking like scary trolls and letting the elements win!

Trolls

First, we’ve got to talk about our hair. Orlando is certainly known to be hot but what most people don’t account for is the way that wave of humidity hits you like a ton of bricks (even early in the morning). If you’ve got hair that just can’t be tamed in such conditions, these are our recommendations.

If you’re not already acquainted with these revolutionary curlers, do yourself a favor and get introduced now! Kitsch makes some of our favorites inspired by Disney princesses! Plus, they’re super easy to pop in before bed, leave on overnight, and unroll the next morning! It also doesn’t hurt that they travel light, too.

These satin scrunchies are so soft for your hair and they’re also part of the same Disney Princess-inspired collection. They’re great to wear as a trendy accessory until you need to put your hair up and won’t put too much strain on your head while you wear them.

These cute hair barrettes make a great, subtle nod to your Disney obsession! We can’t resist how cute they are with their silver and gold colors and those tiny little Minnie Mouse bows clipped in each of their ears.

Now that we’ve tamed the hair beast, it’s time to refocus on another physical toll the Orlando weather will take on your body. Most likely, you don’t normally walk quite as much as you will in one park day’s worth in quite some time. Heed our advice, don’t try to “tough it out” when there’s super reliable help that can make a HUGE difference so easily.

This stuff is like magic for your body! Not only will it help you with your friction woes, but it’s also so discrete that no one will know. There’s no residue left behind and the stick is so compact and travels just like a stick of deodorant. We’re huge fans of taking this little thing around with us to the Disney World parks and popping by the bathroom when we’re ready to reapply it. Plus, it works in all sorts of places you might get irritated from chaffing, sweat, and general irritation that you don’t typically plan to encounter just by walking.

Speaking of bodies, we can’t leave out our faces! So how exactly are we making sure that our makeup doesn’t melt right off? The answer is so simple.

If you do one single thing beyond applying sunscreen to your face while visiting Disney World, this is it! This primer is our supreme choice for makeup that’s toughened up to withstand the sweat, heat, and even sporadic rain showers that Disney World is so famously known to experience. It’s built to hydrate and brighten, and did we also mention that it’s made using a vegan formula? Yeah, it’s that good!

Why bother with messy lipstick when this E.L.F. lip stain works so well! This stuff is literally the most ideal to stand up against the outside elements and is so compact, that you probably will forget you even packed it with you! But don’t take our word for it, find the shade that calls to you and test it out yourself (but then also come back and tell us how much you love it, too).

Mad Beauty makes an adorable duo of vanilla and honey-scented lip balms that couldn’t come in a more fitting package! They’re both molded like little pots of “Hunny” like Winnie The Pooh likes to snack on, but we don’t recommend eating this product — just apply it to keep your lips silky smooth!

Aside from its adorable yet compact design, this portable fan is super handy! It comes with a carrying handle, and the top flips down to protect the twirling fan while also concealing the charging ports that are just underneath.

NYX makes these blotting papers which are ideal for wiping away sweat and dirt without taking off all of your makeup. They’re made to use as needed and easily tossable when you’re done with them. They’re like a freshening up without having to reapply everything all over again, which we think is genius!

Now that you know all our tricks to help feeling refreshed, we’ve got to talk about outfit choices. Keeping your ‘fit light and airy while you’re at Disney World can be the difference between surviving and thriving!

An adjustable mini belt bag is just the perfect size to hold all of your essentials without creating a waterfall of sweat down your back! This bag is built to be enjoyed as a unisex accessory and we can’t recommend its convenience enough.

The DFB Team recommends HOKA Ones!

We get it– you want to match your cute outfit with some equally stunning shoes… but are they practical? Face it, you’re going to be doing a TON of walking around Disney World and if you don’t want to tap out on day 1 of your vacation you’ve got to take care of your feet! Our team swears by their HOKA sneakers and we think they’re just the right shoe to go casual or fancy with!
