    The Moms Panel has been great for planning our trip for 10 next week! I have 2 toddlers and plan to take the good advice of bringing a back pack with snacks, toys, etc. but I am wondering, what will we do with the pack pack when we go on rides? Thanks!

    Hi Kelly! I'm glad you were able to get some advice for your upcoming trip here at the Moms Panel! As for what to do with your backpack, I have been bringing a mega-diaper bag to the parks for the last 11 years now (ok, not consecutively, there was a little break in-between!) and although I've never left valuables like a camera or wallet inside, I've never had any issues just leaving the bag on the stroller (or the times we rented strollers, just right on the seat.) Now I have to note that of course Disney is not responsible for any lost or stolen items left unattended. That said, I've never had anyone try to steal my kids diapers or goldfish crackers. ;) It's really up to what you feel comfortable with.

    If you wanted to bring the bag with you, almost all the rides can accommodate a backpack or diaper bag easily. I've taken big purses on pretty much every ride I can think of and the only ones you might have an issue with are the coasters and thrill rides, in which case, with two toddlers, you'd most likely be doing the rider switch/baby swap option and someone else can hang on to the bag while you ride. If you are going solo with the toddlers, then those rides would have to wait anyway.

    I hope that helps, but if you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask! Have a fabulous time at Walt Disney World! ~Suzannah
