    This is our first trip to Disney and wanted to know what to bring from home? We will have a back pack and i heard we can bring water bottles. Besides sunscreen and bug spray, is there any helpful item to pack so we don't have to buy down there? TY

    Hi Dawn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am so glad you've found our site and have stopped in to ask a wonderful question.   I am happy to share some of my Disney bag essentials for a fun day in the  Walt Disney World Theme Parks.

    You certainly can bring bottled water and soda into the theme parks.   My family often brings a backpack and fills it with water, sunscreen, band-aids and rain ponchos.   Weather in Florida can change from hour to hour and I have found that during certain times of year it rains daily for short periods.   I will often buy ponchos from a local big box store at home and bring them with our family in our backpack.  I also pack snacks such as peanut butter crackers and granola bars so that I can keep my family happy in between meal times.   

    I hope this has helped and has given you a few more ideas of items you can pack in your backpack.  If you have any other questions please let us know.  It's always a pleasure to help out a fellow Guest.
