    First time to WDW, will be carrying backpacks with us during the day at the parks. Will there be any problems taking/fitting our backpacks on any of the rides? Thanks for any info you can give on how to make that work.

    Hi there Kim!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting you will be visiting Walt Disney World for the first time! This is a great question! My husband always brings a standard size backpack into the theme parks filled with snacks, autograph books, pens, sunscreen, a camera, plus any other park touring essentials. He also brings the backpack onto all of the attractions with him. He either places the bag in the designated storage compartment (where available) or on the floor of the ride vehicle. On thrill attractions, he makes sure to secure the bag by placing one strap around his leg or by putting his leg on top of the backpack. We traditionally ride all of the thrill and water attractions and have never encountered any difficulty in bringing our backpack onto the attractions with us. Please know that Disney does prohibit backpacks with or without wheels larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high. I hope this information is helpful! Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional vacation planning questions. Best wishes for a magical first trip, Kim!

    Happy Travels,
