    What do you do with phones/backpacks when you go on rides? Can you bring them on the rides?

    Hey, Liz!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for this wonderful question. Most attractions have a basket or pouch to place small things. I usually place my backpack at my feet and hold in place with my legs and feet. The foot area is usually perfect to wedge a backpack. My phone is in my pocket or backpack.

    If you have a very large backpack then I would ask a Cast Member at the attraction entrance about your backpack size and whether if can go on the attraction.

    An exception is Kali River Rapids at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. There are complimentary short-term lockers to store your personal items so they don't get drenched. These lockers are on and first come, first served basis.

    Disney Dad Tip: Each theme park has rental lockers to store those items you would rather not tote around including souvenirs, leftovers and extra beverages.

    Liz, enjoy making many Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort!
