    How big can backpacks be

    Hi there, Susan, and welcome back to planDisney! 

    From heavy diaper bags to stylish Disney Parks Loungefly mini backpacks, my family has used it all at the Most Magical Place on Earth. Susan, because of the unpredictable Florida weather, I recommend that you pack as lightly as possible on your journey throughout the Disney theme parks. But then again, the bigger the backpack, the more room for souvenirs! So, let's take a look at the park's guidelines to see just how big your backpack can be. 

    According to the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules, “backpacks, with or without wheels, larger than 24” long x 15” wide x 18” high (61 cm x 38 cm x 46 cm) are not allowed in any theme park or water park.” As long as your bag fits within those guidelines, you are good to go! 

    AN EXTRA GEM: In case you need more space while you're at the theme parks, you may want to consider renting a keyless locker near the front entrances of each theme park. These are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Susan, if you have any other questions as you plan your upcoming Disney vacation, please revisit us here at planDisney. I'd be more than happy to help!

    Magic always,
