    Does anybody know where I can buy spray sunscreen (pref. neutrogena but I guess I cant be picky?) at disney world. We are staying at Port Orleans riverside and will be going to magic kingdom the 1st day, so I'd prefer one of those two places, does anybody know if they have it ? I'd assume hotel sells sunscreen, im just wondering about the spray. I'm picky, I know !

    Otherwise I'm considering shipping it from Amazon seeing as I get prime free shipping, but I'd rather just buy it even if its a few dollars more then trying to track down a package when I get there.

    THanks!

    ps - hope this is the right board for this question!

    You can definetly pick some up in Riverside's gift shop, I'm not sure if they have Neutrogena but they do have a variety of sunscreens ( spray-on etc )

    You may be better ordering some to be sent ahead. Gift shop sunscreen is small and expensive.

    I agree; if I remember correctly, at the gift shop it's almost double the price you can get outside WDW. You'd definitely be better off bringing it with you, if possible. Any reason you can't pack it in your luggage? (Are you doing carry-on only? That would definitely limit the amount of sunscreen you could bring with you.)

    If you do decide to buy when there, I'd try to track down the phone number of the POR gift shop and ask them what types of sunscreen they carry. Then you won't be surprised when you get there.

    If Walmart carries what you need, you can order it and have it shipped to the resort for only 97 cents. We just ordered a case of water from them 2 days ago and it was just delivered to POFQ today. It only cost $4.45 shipped.

    Just get it shipped. You won't have to track down the package, you'll be able to get it when you check in.

    WDW prices for sunscreen are ridiculous. About double what you'd pay anywhere else.

    thanks guys! I'll def. check walmart! water would be nice too !

    We are not checking bags only doing carry on so traveling with it is not really an option as I cannot find any spray bottles under 3.4 oz except one by walgreens brand and it was like almost 6 dollars itself !

    Have you ever tried bug spray sunscreen? We used it one time on a beach in Virginia. It kept the bugs away. But for some weird reason, we had a speckled sunburn. I don't know if the combination seperates.So please make sure you shake it well before applying. Good luck. I am not a fan.

    I would not recommend the combo bug spray/sunscreens. You have to reapply sunscreen really often and end up getting way more bug spray than you need. (My doctor said the combos are not a good idea!)

    Plus, I've been to WDW six times and have never needed bug spray.
