    We're preparing for our first visit. I dont want to carry a lot of bags all day long. Seeing suggestions about change of clothes and flip flops for water rides, snacks and frozn water, etc. What is truly particular? Thanks so much! 51 day to go!!

    Welcome to the Mom's Panel, Kelli!  Congratulations on your first of hopefully many more Walt Disney World Vacations!  Please don't feel overwhelmed at all....that's what we are here for!  Feel free to ask us as many questions as you may have regarding your upcoming trip!  I really don't blame you for not wanting to carry multiple bags throughout the parks. In fact, I don't do that either.  Depending on the ages of your children and whether you will have a stroller or not can make a difference in the amount of items you may need to carry. When we traveled with a stroller from home, we always stored our "extra items" in the storage basket under the stroller.  We even used our strollers this past December and my youngest are six. We have found that our kids can get really tired of walking around midday and by using a stroller we get the additional storage space for our bags.  When we haven't used a stroller, we were able to fit everything that we needed for the day in one backpack that my husband carried. Our normal park essentials include a camera, sunscreen, sunglasses, cell phones, autograph books and pens, a few snack items, and our Key to the World Cards (rooms keys.)  We have never even considered carrying a change of clothes or flip flops.  I hope this helps!   Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for your upcoming trip, Kelli!  Sending pixie dust your way that you create "Minnie Magical Memories" on your First Walt Disney World Vacation!
    Happy Planning,
