    Looking forward to out trip in 2 weeks! If we are staying at AS movies, is it worthwile to carry a backpack with us to the various other parks? Our girls are 10 & 12, so they have the stamina to 'go' all day w/o have to return to the hotel

    Hi, Arlene!  I always carry a small backpack or some sort of tote bag with me when I visit any of the Walt Disney World theme parks.  Even if I go with just my oldest daughter, who is almost 18, I still keep my sunscreen, snacks, a bottle of water, my credit cards and ID, and things like gum, lip balm, band-aids, etc.  I've done the theme parks without my bag, but I always end up carrying stuff so that my pockets are bulging and my hands are full.

    Especially if you think you will be doing the parks from morning until parks close in the evenings, you might want to carry something.  If nothing else, it's a good place to keep the pillow you might need for napping on the dark rides so your kids don't totally wear you out!
