    This is our first trip to Disney, we have two kids- 15 and 9 Some people tell me I need to take a stroller to take drinks and snacks and souvenirs in and some say just a backpack. We have the dining plan, so we will eat in the parks. what do u suggest?

    Hi Tiffany! 

    You can just bring a backpack with your drinks and snacks. You definitely don't need a stroller with kids aged 15 and 9. Personally, we bring a backpack each time we visit which we pack with our camera, bottles of water, sunscreen and snacks. If you have the Disney Dining Plan (DDP) you may not need to bring drinks and snacks, but I usually bring extra water and fresh fruit in case we need.p a quick drink or snack while waiting in line. A backpack is also great for storing the purchases you make throughout the day.
