    I am assuming my phone is going to be a big part of navigating and keeping on track when I am in the park. Can I keep my phone in my pocket on all the rides? Is there a drop off point for phones on water rides?

    Hi, Kerry!
    Your phone can be a really helpful tool to track your FastPass+ reservations and keep up with wait times of the attractions in each park. I also stopped bringing my fancy camera when I visit because I love the combination of photos I take with my phone and the pictures I can get from buying a Memory Maker.

    You should be able to keep your phone in your pocket or in a bag if you plan to carry one when you visit the parks. Some attractions have pockets that let you hold your small items. (But don't forget to pick them up before you leave! Walt Disney World Resorts has a really great lost and found department, but it's still stressful to leave your belongings on an attraction.)

    If you're worried about keeping your phone safe on the water rides, I'd recommend bringing a poncho. While most of my family members are just fine with getting soaked, I carry a small travel-sized poncho to avoid getting drenched.

    If you're concerned about your belongings, there are locker rentals at the front of each park. You can store anything you're worried about getting damaged or if you want to avoid stuffing a bag into an attraction while you ride something fun.

    I hope those tips help!
