    What is the best items to bring in your backpack daily?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Vicki ~

    Your trip is just days away and I know you're too excited to sleep! I try to be as prepared as possible whenever I am visiting the theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort. I am not sure of the ages in your travel party, but here are some things that I would recommend bringing in your backpack:

    * Ponchos and umbrellas if rain is in the forecast (I take an extra plastic bag to put them in if they get wet)
    * Hand sanitizer
    * Kleenex
    * Extra phone charger (don't forget the cords)
    * ChapStick with sunscreen
    * Water bottle for each person (you can refill them in the parks - I bring disposable ones that I can toss when we're done)
    * Wipes (some for hands and the antibacterial ones)
    * Sunglasses
    * Hats or visors
    * Jacket or sweatshirt if it is going to get cooler
    * Snacks
    * Autograph book and wider pen that makes it easier for the characters to hold
    * Sunscreen
    * Lotion
    * Any medications that you may need (i.e., Advil or Tylenol)
    * Band-Aids - these are available at First Aid but I bring a couple just in case.
    * Safety pins
    * Ziplocs - These are great for saving grapes or carrots that you don't eat during a meal for later. They are also great to put your cell phone in for the water rides.
    * Any personal hygiene items you may need
    * Pen, Sharpie, and small notepad
    * A small personal fan - there are lots of them out there that have a small string that you can put around your neck
    * Change of clothes if you have kids
    * Hairbrush
    * Elastic hair bands (if someone has long hair)
    * If you have a stroller, a ribbon to tie on the handle to make it easier to spot.

    Please feel free to visit us again with any other questions. We're hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
