    Do you recommend having a waist pack to carry gear, diapers, cameras, etc OR would a back pack work just fine? We are worried about taking it on the rides with us- if a backpack would be too cumbersome. We would rather not keep it in the stroller. Thanks!

    Hi Nakia!

    I almost always bring a medium size backpack with me into the theme parks. It really comes in handy and you will not have any problems taking it on the attractions. That includes rides like roller coasters. On all of the rides, there will be a place to store your bag. The only time I am ever concerned is when I go on a water ride and I have a bag full of electronics. In that case I still bring my bag with me but will put the contents inside the backpack into plastic bags, including bags from the various stores in Walt Disney World. 

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions!
