    I was looking at the backpack regulations and was confused on the 24 inches long part. What part of the backpack would that exactly be measuring

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Johnathan. I'm so glad you stopped by! It sounds like you're planning to visit the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. Let's get you set for magical adventures!

     A bag or backpack is a must for visiting the theme parks. I'm a mom of three, so my park bag is usually stuffed with everything from snacks to extra clothes, but even when I'm enjoying a theme park day without my kiddos in tow, I still have a bag with the essentials! You ask a great question about backpack requirements. You're right; the measurements are a bit confusing on the Walt Disney World Resort Rules list. I was confused after looking at them again too, so I got some clarification from a friendly Cast Member. In relation to taking a bag into the theme parks, no bag may be larger than 24" long (left side to right side), 15" wide (front to back), and 18" high (bottom to top). 

     Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app before your visit to the theme parks. It's magic at your fingertips! I love using the app to check current wait times for attractions. It helps my family decide where to head next! I also love the Mobile Order feature on the My Disney Experience mobile app. Talk about convenience!

     I hope this was helpful, Johnathan. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
