    do ladies need clear bags to carry in the parks?

    Hi Cindy! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It looks like you are finalizing your packing list as your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just a few short days away. I'm so excited for you!

    This is an excellent question! Clear bags are not required at Walt Disney World Resort. Within the Walt Disney World Resort Park Rules, you will find other information regarding bags so I am including the information below.

    "All persons, bags, parcels, clothing and other items may be subject to screening/security checks at the Park entrances and also within the Parks. We reserve the right not to allow any bag, parcel or other item to be brought into the Parks, and to deal with any unattended object in such way as we consider appropriate. Suitcases, coolers or backpacks, with or without wheels, larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high (61cm x 38cm x 46cm) are not permitted."

    When we are visiting a theme park, we typically carry a standard size backpack (or smaller) similar in size to what our kiddos use for school. In it, we have our must have items for a day at Walt Disney World Resort: water bottle (no glass containers), sunblock, rain gear if needed, photo ID, small amount of cash and/or credit card (just in case it's needed for some reason), hand sanitizer, lip balm, sunglasses, hat or cap, phone, camera, and of course, we wear our MagicBands throughout our vacation. As our kids are getting older, the family backpack is turning into smaller individual sized bags each person carries with their own items. Typing my list is making me excited for our next vacation! I know you are going to have a magical time and I love how thorough you are being with your planning!  

    Thanks for sharing your question with us and please let me know if you need any other information as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
