Amazon Travel Essentials & Spring Break Stories!
Here are the best Amazon travel essentials & how to pack for spring break! These unique travel accessories are so helpful as you prepare for your next adventure. For spring break this year, Stetson went to Cancun and Margaret went to Disneyland!
Stetson’s Spring Break in Cancun
I stayed at a beautiful Airbnb in Cancun, Mexico right on the beach! Our place was like its own mini paradise and came with its own staff, huge pool, and hot tub. I spent most of the week relaxing in the sun and eating delicious Mexican food from a local mom-and-pop restaurant nearby.
I loved using the tote bag while I was in Cancun! This trendy bag easily held all my travel essentials, and I definitely recommend it.
Speaking of travel essentials — have you seen these travel hangers?? They fold up so easily and help prevent your clothes from getting wrinkly. I also never go anywhere without my touchland hand sanitizer!
While in Cancun, we celebrated our 9-year anniversary of being together at one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever been to called Taboo. After that, we headed downtown to get our drink on at Senior Frogs! Our night was so fun and consisted of body paint, dancing on stage, and lots of Don Julio 1942 tequila.
When I wasn’t sipping margaritas, I was loving my Liquid IV. With all the sun and drinking, these helped me stay hydrated!
One of the biggest highlights of the trip was going jet skiing. This was only my second time going and it was a blast!
Margaret’s Spring Break at Disneyland
My family trip to Disneyland was full of tons of sweet family time! While we had the time of our life, our trip didn’t start off that great…. On our road trip down to Anaheim, our car got broken into while we spent the night in Stockton!
Some really nice strangers helped us patch up our window so we could drive — it was a magic moment of kindness! Later in the week, we found a company to fix the window. Thankfully we did not let this setback ruin our trip at all!
After our long and stressful drive, we enjoyed a yummy dinner at the Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney.
We stayed at the Element Anaheim Resort and Convention Center and loved it! I had a beautiful corner room with a kitchen, a view of the Disney parks, and it was just a 10 min walk to Disneyland. If you’re planning a Disney trip, definitely prepare to walk a lot! My Adidas tennis shoes saved my life. Even after four days of walking around Disney, my legs and feet didn’t hurt at all!
By the way, don’t you love these vintage square cat eye sunglasses?? They were the perfect staple for the long drives and days spent in the California sun. And if you don’t want to wear them, they fit perfectly in this fanny pack!
During our late evening at California Adventure, we got a one-pound pretzel. When I first saw it, I thought it was a prop. We had never seen one so big!
While in southern California this Adidas hat was perfect for keeping my face out of the sun! I’m all about sun protection — my favorite SPF for traveling is EltaMD Tinted Sunscreen.
My favorite Disney rides were the Guardians of the Galaxy (we rode it twice back to back), Space Mountain, and Incredicoaster.
Can you tell I like roller coasters??
I also loved riding Autopia with my daughter Jackie and grandson Dominic! We took the kids on a ton of cute rides and it was amazing quality time making some memories. We especially loved the World of Color water show, it was beautiful!
Our favorite Disney restaurant was The Wine Country Trattoria. I got the salmon with an arugula salad and the most delicious tiramisu in the entire world! If you go to California Adventure, you have to check it out.
This black turtleneck (and this gold one!) is a suitcase staple for traveling. A few days in Anaheim were a little chilly so these helped me feel comfortable!
