This back to school season kids can wear their favorite Disney characters to school and beyond! Disney Store has your back to school essentials. I was sent a Jake and the Never Land Pirates backpack, lunch tote and water bottle as well as an Ariel backpack and lunch tote to review. You can always count on Disney Store to offer superb sale prices (backpacks are currently $12!) and adorable designs of your favorite Disney, Pixar and Marvel characters.
My daughter and her friend A are shown here modeling the backpacks and lunch totes for us!
We had a backpack last year that completely overwhelmed my daughter. I feel that these Disney bags are the perfect size for preschool/elementary school kids. Another issue that seemed to plague many families was lost and found. I don’t know about you but my daughter has misplaced a few items. I didn’t get into the habit of labeling her belongings until the end of the school year. The Disney bags have a “belongs to” area on the flap of the bag. Your child can write their name in the bags. Hopefully nothing will go missing.
I also love that the backpacks have a matching lunch bags and water bottle . The water bottle will easy fit in the mesh side pocket for easy access. The bags are colorful, padded for comfort and the quality is terrific. Backpacks are personalizable (extra charge) and there is a loop for the lunch bag to attach to the backpack. Rolling backpacks are also available for a kid which is a relief for their back!
For those of you who are looking for a lunch snack idea, I usually stock up on snacks every couple of weeks to make packing lunch easier. Foodles have come in handy. They are Mickey Mouse shaped trays filled with grapes, cheese, pretzels and more. Sure, I could take the time to slice and prepare these things but realistically I don’t always have the time and my daughter loves the surprise treat! Foodles can be found at Target and other stores!
I think my daughter is ready for school? Me? I’m not so sure!

My daughter would love the Ariel set. She’s her favorite Disney character. My best school packing tip is to pack it the night before.

Lunch is easy because my son is picky so he only eats one thing.
