    When we go on a ride (like Splash Mountain or Space Mountain), is there a place/locker to leave our bags and purchases? Or do we have to take them on the ride with us? I just don't want everything getting soaked or shmushed. :)

    There really isn't a way to leave your items, as you do not board and disembark the rides at the same location. On a few rides you will find a storage place for bags - pockets on Expedition Everest, for example, or a water resistant console on Kali River Rapids. For the most part, you will need to manage your own bag. For that reason, I like to use the soft, draw-string backpacks when in the parks. When you go on a ride, it's easy to turn it around to the front of your body, so it's still secure but out of your way.

    If you make purchases while in the park, you have the option of having them sent directly to your resort (if you are staying on property), or they can be held at the front of the park for you to pick up when you leave for the day. That will save you from having to carry them around all day, which is a big help!

    Have a great trip!
