It’s a scene many of us face this time of year; school has let out, you’ve packed your bags for a family vacation, and, now, just one thing stands between you and your destination: a long plane ride. Recognizing that air travel is a privilege—and a modern marvel—in theory, we have to admit that, in practice, hauling carry-ons and sitting in place for hours on end wears at anyone’s patience.
We’ve collected things from the Disney Store that’ll make traveling infinitely better.
A distinctive suitcase will make picking your bag up after landing so much easier. Plan for a quick pick-up ahead of time, with one of these Disney suitcases. The BB-8 case is one of our personal favorites.
