    My boyfriend and I will be celebrating our birthdays as well as our anniversary and we are going to animal kingdom and magic kingdom, my question is what should we bring? Also can we visit both parks on the same day with the park hopper option?

    Welcome to the Moms Panel Mariah!  We're so glad you're hEAR!

    Disney is a great place to celebrate any occasion & it sounds like you have multiple reasons to celebrate! 

    I try to travel as light as possible in the parks.  I like being hands free and usually bring a small backpack to carry my essentials:  
    * Money, credit card, ID, tickets & resort ID if I'm staying on property.  
    * Camera with extra batteries
    * Cell phone
    * Sunglasses
    * Visor or hat in the summer when the sun is super bright
    * Sunscreen
    * Chapstick or some type of lip moisturizer
    * Small package of tissues
    * Small package of antibacterial wipes or gel
    * Small refillable water bottle that fits into the backpack
    * Pen & paper (I always end up needing to write down something)
    * The all important hairbrush to tame the mane after crazy rides

    If rain is in the forecast, I bring a small poncho or small umbrella.

    If I see the night temperatures will become a little chilly for me, I bring a jacket that will fold up & fit in the backpack.

    If your tickets have the Park Hopper Option, you are able to visit any and all of the 4 theme parks as much as you'd like in one day.  This gives you lots of flexibility so that you can catch your favorite attractions, shows or dining locations in any of the parks.

    Don't forget to stop by any Guest Relations location to pick up a "Happy Birthday" & "I'm Celebrating" button to commemorate the special occasions.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
