    What items are essential to carry around while on the parks. Cell phone, wallet, water bottle, rain coat, etc? Is it practical to carry a back pack. Are you able to get on the rides with a backpack? thanks!

    Welcome Sonia. Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I usually carry my backpack when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. I can’t go anywhere without carrying my wallet, cell phone and sunscreen with me. There are other items I consider very important to bring to Disney Theme Parks for a magical day: a hat or cap, poncho for rainy days, camera, bottle of water, some snacks and a long sleeve shirt (it can feel chilly inside some shows and attractions).
    There is no problem to ride most attractions carrying your backpack with you. For those attractions they are not allowed, usually thrill rides, cast members will inform you the best place to leave it while you ride. Please note that rules apply for backpack sizes. Suitcases, coolers or backpacks, with or without wheels, are not allowed to be brought to the parks if they are larger than 24” long X 15” wide X 18” high (61cm X 38cm X 46cm). 
    Don’t hesitate to come back if you have further questions.
    Have a wonderful day!

I am totally a Disney maniac! Since childhood, I have been a big fan of all things Disney, especially the theme parks.

With so much to explore, I would love to help you plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and discover all the fantasy and magic this special place has to offer. Learn More About Gina
