    Please share the essential items I must take into theme parks besides money. Want to travel as light as possible. Can small bags be taken on rides, or must we rent a locker? Will be first time WDW cruise and park goers this October.

    Hi Kerri!

    Congrats on your first Disney Vacation! 

    If just going as adults, I suggest the following:
    sun block
    park tickets
    bottles of water
    snack items
    essential medications
    park tickets
    rain gear

    If traveling with infants/children also add these items to your list:

    change of clothes for the little ones
    burp cloths
    bottles/formula (if applicable)
    baby food (if applicable)
    small toys for the little ones
    essential medications

    Small bags can be stored on the rides, if it's a roller coaster or thrill ride, you'll find a bag compartment to put your bag.  Other rides you can put the bag at your feet or on the seat next to you.

    Have a magical vacation!
