    If I bring a small backpack, can I wear it on all the rides at Epcot and Animal Kingdom?

    Hi Susan!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your Walt Disney World vacation is just around the corner.  How exciting!

    I love bringing a crossbody bag or backpack into the theme parks with me, so that I have all of my park touring essentials at my fingertips. I'm pleased to tell you that small backpacks can definitely be brought onto the attractions at both Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Epcot. You may be asked to remove the backpack as you board the attraction, but you can absolutely keep it with you. Some attractions do feature a dedicated storage compartment in the ride vehicle. On thrill attractions, I usually stow by backpack on the floor of the ride vehicle. When riding slower attractions like Frozen Ever After, I usually hold my backpack on my lap. 

    Be sure to take advantage of FastPass+ service in order to decrease your wait for some of the most popular attractions. All Guests may book FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance; whereas, Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can book FastPass+ selections up to 60 days prior to check-in for their entire length of stay. Please note theme park admission is required and must be linked to your Disney account in order to book FastPass+ selections.

    I hope this information is helpful, Susan. Please stop by again with any new questions. Best wishes for a magical trip!
