    Can I bring a small backpack with wheels to Disneyland? I have back issues and would like the option to roll it.

    Hi there, Marilou!

    Welcome to planDisney! Packing the perfect park bag is always a fun challenge for me. I love to be prepared, but I also want to be comfortable!

    Unfortunately, bags with wheels are not permitted inside Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. I'm sorry that solution won't be possible! I do have another idea that might help you, though.

    My best suggestion is to try renting a locker! A locker rental is valid for the entire day, so you can take things out or put things in as often as you want. It's the perfect place to store a jacket, snacks, or souvenirs you don't want to carry (looking at you, adorable popcorn bucket). There are also lockers located in the Esplanade between the two theme parks, and you would be allowed to store a wheeled bag in these lockers. You just can't take a wheeled bag into the theme parks.

    To protect your back I would also recommend that you do a little research on the rides that have health advisories in the theme parks. I wouldn't want "the wildest ride in the wilderness" to make it hard to enjoy your day! Don't worry, there are plenty of rides that don't pose a risk to your comfort.

    I see that you'll be visiting during the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort! One of my favorite things to watch after the sun goes down is "it's a small world" Holiday Lighting. It happens every 30 minutes after dark, which makes it pretty easy to catch this beautiful moment. Don't forget to enjoy the holiday version of this iconic attraction, too!

    Marilou, I hope you'll be able to bring everything you need for a comfortable day at the parks! If all else fails, when I get cold at Disneyland Park I use it as an excuse to buy a new sweatshirt. I'd say don't tell my husband my secret...except I'm pretty sure he already knows. Oh well!

    Keep moving forward!
