    Hi! We are planning on visiting both disney world and Disneyland in September and was wondering if camel backs are allowed in the parks. If so do they need to be empty for bag check or can we bring them full?

    Hi there, Rosemarie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We appreciate you taking the time to stop by and allowing us to help you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    The weather at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort is known to be quite hot, particularly during this time of the year! In addition, Guests tend to walk and be in the sun for extended periods of time during their visits. This makes it incredibly important for all Guests to stay hydrated throughout their time visiting the parks!

    Fortunately, backpacks that contain bladders, such as CamelBaks, are definitively allowed inside the parks at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort! The only rule you must keep in mind is that all backpacks must be no larger than 24 inches long by 15 inches wide by 18 inches high. Backpacks containing bladders are actually a great way to consistently assure you have water during your time in the parks and stay hydrated. Guests are allowed to bring any non-alcoholic beverage as long as it is not in a glass container. When going through security, I would simply alert them to the fact that your backpack contains a bladder so it doesn't surprise them! 

    I hope this information assists you as you continue to plan for your amazing adventure to both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort!
