Going to Disneyland is an experience, so keeping the positive vibe is key. You will be taking lots of photos and video, along with running around the park all day. No placed to charge, no places to really relax for after the hour or more wait, you have a 10 minute ride and it’s off to the next attraction.
Having some key tech gear to keep you going really helps. I brought a few items with me to Disneyland that kept me going all day. Here are what I recommend you should have.
Tough Tested Rugged Weatherproof Charger
With 8000 mAh inside, a fully charged Tough Tested USB charger is a great addition to your gear. It might be a little bulky, but it’s worth it’s weight at 10 AM when you need to charge your phone back up for the first time today. This device will charge a standard Smartphone or iPhone up to 5 times!
The case is strong and the battery pack has an IP-65 rating. This means you can drop it a few times without damage. It also is waterproof, so it can survive a water ride or sand storm.
The battery pack also comes with an LED light that can also be put in SOS mode if needed (perfect for the outdoors-man). The battery will also keep a full charge for months on end so you have it in an emergency storm situation. More than just a Disney experience!
OlloClip 4-in-1 Lens and Case
Getting a closer shot or getting everything in one selfie can be difficult on a smartphone. That is why Olloclip created a 4-in-1 lens adapter. I can optically zoom in on the Magic Kingdom, or get all my buddies on a Fish-Eye lens selfie. I have done a full review of the Ollo Clip a while back, and it really earned it’s keep at Disneyland. Especially when I was trying to get Facebook Live and Instagram Stories photos and video.

I am not a fan of bringing any backpacks into any theme park. You cannot wear them on rides and they can still be pick-pocketed. A good jacket with zipper pockets is the best bet. That is why I used the SCOTTeVEST Featherweight. With 14 pockets, including an inner RFID pocket, I can keep my wallet, phone, and other important items out of a thieves way. I also have pockets to put cords, Fast Pass tickets, headphones, glasses (on the fast coasters) and even an area to put a water bottle in.
I skipped the water bottle for sun screen – and it worked perfect! Best part is this jacket is thin so you are not sweating too bad during the hot days.
SCOTTeVEST Featherweight is $140 and available in 3 colors.
Kodak PixPro SP360
A good 360 camera will help you get the photos and video of the whole gang! Relive the rides, or just point the 360 view on you for your reaction. With the Kodak PixPro, you can take photos, video, and high-speed video for slow motion replay in stunning 4K.
You can get the single unit for a 360 half-spherical video, or both devices for the full 360 experience! You can even control the device using the Android or iOS app!
Kodak PixPro is $499 for the single unit.
