Looking for an inexpensive, compact, and useful souvenir from your Disney World vacation? One that won’t break the bank, and that will fit in your already over-stuffed suitcase?

That’s a pretty tall order.

However, we have an answer: one that comes in a very small package.

Magic Towels

What is a Magic Towel? It’s a 10 inch by 10 inch wash cloth that is compressed into a very tiny package:  just 1 ¾ inches wide by 1 ¾ inches wide and ½ inch deep. That’s small. Apparently as part of the manufacturing process, the full-sized towel is somehow compressed, and then shrink-wrapped into a very tiny package.

Disney offers many different characters on their magic towels including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, characters from the Pixar Cars movie, and a Mickey Mouse dressed up as a pirate from Pirates Of The Caribbean.

The towels are inexpensive;  you can get an individual towel for $3.95, or a set of four towels (different princess designs packaged as a set, for example) for $11.95, which brings the per-unit price down to a very affordable $3 per towel.

If you would like to see how to unpack and soak your Magic Towel to its full size, check out this video by a slightly snarky gentlemen with a British-like accent. In the end, he asks the question, “Will this improve my life?” The answer may be no, but it just might make your life a little more colorful and fun!
