    Hi Erin, We will be visiting WDW in 12 days!! What kind of bag should we bring in to the park? We will have our infant so lots of daipers, baby food etc. I was thinking definitly a backpack, and maybe a diaper bag too? Could I leave diaper bag in stroller

    I'm trying to remember back to those days of baby gear. It seemed like even a trip to the mall involved an hour's worth of preparation. It does get easier :-)

    I think your plan is a good one. When our kids were smaller we did bring two main bags into the parks: a lighter one that we would bring with us onto the rides and a larger one that we could leave in the stroller. The one that came with us had anything of value in it (mostly cameras and tickets), plus a small supply of baby gear. It makes sense if this is a backpack because this helps keep your hands free for holding onto the kiddos.

    The other bag could have more diapers, a change of baby clothes, baby food, and other more substantial supplies. We always left a bag in the stroller and never had any issues with theft. Of course you should be careful with anything value, but I think a basic diaper bag would be perfectly fine in a stroller. 

    I will caution you that one thing NOT to leave in the stroller is any sort of loose food. On a few occasions one of the kids left some Goldfish or half a cookie sitting in the stroller. We returned to find a flock of birds all over the stroller feasting on snack remains. 

    Also, if you find that you've forgotten to bring something you need to the parks, be sure to stop by the baby centers. They have a selection of baby care basics there for purchase should you need extra supplies.

    Hope you have a great trip!
