    My family of 4 is going to the park in late September and I am trying to plan what to bring into the park for the day. I have a teenager and an 8 year old so I'm questioning all the extras I used to bring in with my big bag. Suggestions?

    Hi Danielle,

    Oh, how I remember those days of the giant bag full of diapers and supplies for a full day in the theme parks! Now that my daughters are older, I've significantly scaled back my Walt Disney World kit, but there are still a few essentials I always pack: sunscreen, a few adhesives bandages in case of blisters, hand sanitizer, tissues, a travel pack of wet wipes, a small disposable rain poncho for each person (which I buy at a discount store or drug store), a couple of protein bars and a small container of pain reliever.  I also leave room for a water bottle.

    All of that still fits in a medium-sized cross body bag, which is light and comfortable. I don't feel weighed down, but know that I have essential supplies to keep us going throughout our day.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We're always happy to help with advice to make your family vacation magical. Enjoy!
