    We're planning our first trip to Disney World with our 6 1/2 year old daughter the first week of June. I've spent, literally,hours on ebags website,trying to find a bag that would be good for our trip. Can anyone suggest a style bag that would be good?

    Hi, Kathleen!    You will see bags of all shapes and sizes being carried by guests in the parks.   For me, what works best is my good old backpack.    It is large enough to carry the necessities with kids:   sunscreen, camera, hand sanitizer, sweatshirts, hats and snacks.   It also has convenient pockets on the outside to slide in water bottles, autograph books, and anything we need to get to quickly.

    My slightly worn, navy blue backpack is nice since my husband can easily carry it, too (not sure he'd be too happy carrying a pink bag with flowers on it!)   Also, this doesn't show the dirt and is comfortable to carry.    Don't worry about being fancy, find something functional!    Make sure with whatever you choose, you put a tag on it with your name, cell phone number, and resort  in case you set it down by accident or leave it anywhere.  

    All bags must go through a security screening prior to entering the parks, so have your bag ready to be checked.   Good luck bag shopping (and check in your closet, you might just have the perfect bag already!)
