    Hi! I want to bring as little into Magic Kingdom as possible so I can enjoy my day without lugging around a huge, heavy bag. I will have a six year old and my Magic Band. What are the bare necessities we'll need for an entire day in the park?

    Hi Camille!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! This is a great question! My husband and I both like to bring a bag into the parks with all of our park essentials. He prefers a medium-size backpack; whereas, I use a lightweight messenger bag. Although everyone may differ, my list of "bare necessities" includes sunscreen, sunglasses, a camera,  cellphone,  hand sanitizer, snacks, umbrella or ponchos, if there is a chance of rain, any necessary medications, and autograph books and pens for the kids. There are lockers at the entrance of the park, but I personally like to keep my bag on me at all times, so that everything is easily accessible. I hope this information is helpful to you! Please don't hesitate to visit us again with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Camille!

    Happy Travels,
