    We're going to Disney World next week starting April 21st for a 5 night stay! Have never been there before and was wondering if a backpack is a good idea? Or what do you suggest to carry needed items?

    Hi Rebecca!

    I'm so excited for you to be soon experiencing the magic of Walt Disney World ... the countdown is ON! Yes, a backpack is a GREAT idea. I answered the same question about cost saving measures and must-haves in the day bag, found HERE. I'm not sure of the ages of your travel party, so let me know if you have any follow up questions. One thing I failed to mention in the above answer: ponchos! Make a trip to your local dollar store and pick up a few ponchos. The few dollars spent will surely be useful if there's a rain storm. April is not a typically rainy month but it's always good to be prepared.

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Rebecca!
