2015 Summer Disney Vacation: What is a Frogg Togg and why do you need one?

Heading to Disney World this summer? Before you get there, let me tell you something: IT’S HOT. I’ve recommended Frogg Toggs in another post “Keeping Your Infant or Toddler Cool at Disney World“, and I have had several people email me for more information. Here’s a bit more information on Frogg Toggs:

What is it?

A Frogg Togg is a cooling towel that is made from a durable and organic “man made sponge” called polyvinyl alcohol.

How do I use it?

To use a Frogg Togg, you wet it with water and wring it out. As the water evaporates, the towel becomes cool to the touch.

Is it reusable?

Yes! After it dries, simply re-wet the towel, wring it out, and the evaporating and cooling starts all over again. Towels are designed to last for years after your Disney vacation.

Is it safe for babies or young children?

Of course, I wouldn’t recommend them if they weren’t! The towels are made from organic materials. Once they are worn out, you can actually grind or rip them up and put them in soil to help plants retain moisture. Frogg Toggs will biodegrade after time.

What specific tips do you have for use at the Disney Parks?

I’m glad you asked! If you have young kids riding in a stroller, you can line the stroller seat with the Frogg Togg towel and let them sit on top of it. This is a non-intrusive way to keep your little ones cool. If you can, draping a Frogg Togg across your child’s shoulders and neck will also keep them cool. Re-wetting the towels is easy in any bathroom at Disney.

Where can I buy a Frogg Togg?

The cheapest place to buy Frogg Toggs that I have found is Amazon.com. You can choose from a large selection of colors (each member of our family has a different color towel!) including blue, green, pink, purple, orange, and more! (Hint: Different colors are different prices on Amazon.com). Click here to view Frogg Toggs on Amazon.

Funny name for a product, but a staple that should be in your Disney bag this summer. Be sure to share this post with other travelers:
