3 Travel Accessories You Should Bring to Orlando
Travel Accessories for Your Next Orlando Vacation
Going on vacation brings new challenges you may not face daily. You do different things. Likely, you dress differently. New environments can cause stress that you normally don’t encounter.
That’s why we have three travel accessories to recommend for your next Orlando vacation.
Two of them are to help you conveniently carry and perhaps conceal some of your vital possessions, and another helps you deal with the oppressive heat and environment that happens in Orlando most months of the year. These are products that we use and recommend.
If you have any questions, please bring them up in the comments.
The FlipBelt fitness running belt is the perfect alternative to bulky running armbands and pouches. Its lightweight design won't chafe or bounce, and the four slide-in pockets easily fit all your must-have items. The FlipBelt sits flat on your hips and eliminates chafing with its zero fasteners.
The moisture-wicking design prevents items from bouncing while you're running or working out. Available in sizes XXS-XXL and in various colors.
The Flipbelt is a multi-use way to easily carry money, mobile phones, ID and even a water bottle while on the go.
Lee discovered this product at a showcase for the Celebration Marathon and used it daily for her endurance running. However, it’s just as useful for travel as exercise. The FlipBelt comes in different colors and sizes and easily fits under your shirt to conceal your mobile phone, cards, and cash.
You can wear it over or under your clothing, and the stretchy material fits comfortably around your waist or hips, whichever you prefer. I recently used this at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom to hold my iPhone under my t-shirt. It was perfect!
My concern wasn’t about concealing it but not stuffing the phone in my back pocket where it’s loose or possibly sitting on it. The FlipBelt was comfortable, and I forgot I was even wearing it while moving around. When I needed my phone, I just reached into the belt, unzipped it, and retrieved the phone.
You can get a version of the FlipBelt with or without the zipper. Lee runs with her iPhone in a FlipBelt without a zipper, and it stays securely in place for miles.
It also works as a money belt if you’re concerned about pickpockets while traveling. You can wear it on either side, so the opening faces your body or away from it. Worn under clothing, it’s undetectable.
The FlipBelt Water Bottle is perfect for runners and other active individuals who want to stay hydrated without carrying a bulky water bottle. The design fits perfectly inside any FlipBelt running belt, and the curved shape creates a more natural fit around your body.
It's made with BPA-free, 100% HDPE plastic, so you can be sure that you're not exposing yourself to harmful chemicals. And when you're done with your run, simply pop it in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.
If you want to use your FlipBelt to carry water or something else to drink, you can get in two sizes – 6 oz and 11 oz.
The bottles fit nicely into the FlipBelt, including a slight curve to wrap around your body. They’re easy to open and refill.
We love FlipBelt and use them all the time. It’s just a comfortable and convenient way to carry things hands-free.
The RooSport waist pouch is the perfect way to keep your belongings secure and close at hand while you're on the go. Made of durable, water-resistant material, it's ideal for carrying small items like phones and credit cards during your run or workout. The rugged zipper and waist magnet closure ensure that your things stay put, even during intense activity. And with different sizes and colors available, there's a RooSport that's just right for you.
The RooSport is another great way to carry things you’d rather not stuff in your pockets, or even better, when you have no pockets. Instead of fitting like a loop around your body, RooSport attached itself around your clothing belt using magnets.
It provides a convenient pouch to carry your phone, money, ID, and more. If you have a larger phone, take a look at the RooSportPLUS for a larger carrying capacity.
The RooSportPLUS is a handy little pouch is the perfect size for carrying all your essentials while you're on the go. Measuring 7.5 inches x 4.5 inches, it can easily hold large cell phones like iPhones 8–12 and Samsungs 8–9, as well as credit cards, wallets, car keys, and earphones.
It's made with waterproof material, so it's great for keeping your valuables safe and dry during intense exercise or when you're out and about in the elements. And its tough zipper and waist magnets ensure that your belongings stay secure no matter what you're doing.
Available in different sizes and colors.
You don’t need a belt to use the RooSport. It fits over your shorts or pant waistline to connect the magnets securely.
While it won’t be as hidden as a FlipBelt that you can wear under your clothing, it’s a bit more convenient to reach for your items.
The RooSport has a zipper pocket for cards and keys and a velcro pocket for larger items. It even has an opening for headphones if you want to keep your phone stored in the pouch while you listen.
3: Nuun Hydration
Nuun Sport is the delicious, electrolyte-rich sports drink tablet that enhances your workout and keep you hydrated all day long. Mixes easily with water for a refreshing, fruity beverage that is gluten free and keto-friendly. Each box contains four tubes of different delicious flavors: Lemon Lime, Tri-Berry, Citrus Fruit, and Orange. 40 servings total.
The Florida sun can suck the life out of you with dehydration. If you aren’t acclimated to the weather, it can hit you hard before you know it. That’s one of the reasons some visitors find themselves feeling a bit cranky in this climate.
What can happen when you get dehydrated? The responses are headaches, muscle cramps, nausea, and fatigue. As you sweat, you lose electrolytes – important particles in your body that maintain fluid balance and normal body functions. Just drinking water doesn’t replace electrolytes.
Nuun Hydration tablets work as both a preventative and post-dehydration response. We think it’s better to prevent than react, so we recommend taking Nuun Hydration before you start your day in the sun.
Nuun Hydration comes in tablets that dissolve in water. There are plenty of flavors, including:
Nuun Hydration electrolytes are safe for everyone. You can give it to your kids. I’d probably avoid the caffeinated ones for the younger children, but there is no junk in these. A full list of ingredients is on their website. There is no added sugar, no artificial colorants of flavorings, and the Nuun folks don’t believe in artificial sweeteners either.
Bonus: Einstein Brothers Bagels
This is completely unrelated to anything above, and we get no compensation for saying this, but we love Einstein Bros. Bagels.
It’s a large chain and has several locations in Central Florida. We love that the bagels are fresh and delicious, and the crew is always friendly. Lee and Tové never had any from here until I bought a bag after one of Lee’s races. The look on their faces as they took the first bite was amazing.
These bagels are just better than anything else we found. Panera Bread bagels don’t even come close, and there are more flavor choices at Einstein Bros. Bagels.
You can find them at the Publix bakery, too.
