    May I carry my purse (cross body bag) with me on the rides? It fits snugly against my body and would not interfere with safety harnesses. I carry asthma medication with me at all times.

    Hi Jackie, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Finding the right bag for your Walt Disney World vacation is a key step in the planning process! I need mine to be functional enough to hold all the essentials, cute enough to coordinate with my many Disney-themed t-shirts and Minnie Ear headbands – AND it must be comfortable enough to carry all day. Paging Mary Poppins!

    I also have asthma, and I understand how crucial it is to keep that medication close at hand. My go-to park purse is a Dooney & Bourke letter carrier crossbody purse, and it works perfectly for me. I would advise being sure your bag has a top zipper, as items can shift inside some thrill rides (they don't call Big Thunder Mountain Railroad "the wildest ride in the wilderness" without reason!). We also bring a backpack stuffed with water, snacks, and sunscreen...but I make my husband carry that!

    Please take a minute to review the Walt Disney World Park Rules to ensure your purse fits the guidelines. Your purse will be subject to search at security checkpoints at each theme park entrance, and also within the parks if requested. I have worn my crossbody bag on many attractions, as it fits easily on the side of my body when attraction restraints are in place, but a Cast Member may request that you stow it at your feet or in a ride vehicle's compartment, depending on the bag's size and safety rules.

    Jackie, I hope your time at Walt Disney World is practically perfect in every way! Please come back and see us if you have any more questions as you do your planning, packing, and dreaming.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
