    Traveling to Disneyland in CA later this month, after over 15 years! I’m hoping hydration backpacks are allowed as long as they are no larger than 24” long x 15” wide x 18 high. I wanted to be able to travel light and free up my hands by wearing one.

    Hi Raquell! 

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so glad you found us to ask your question. Over the years, my husband and I have carried a wide variety of bags into the Disney theme parks. 

    How thrilling that you are planning a trip to visit Disneyland after such a long time away!  After traveling to Disney theme parks over 80 times, I am now of the “the smaller, the better” mindset when it comes to my park bag. While I still will carry my cute Disney Dooney & Bourke backpack with my travel umbrella (for both sun AND rain), my metal water bottle, my hand sanitizer & wipes, a snack or two, & my sunglasses case, I have definitely reduced the amount that I carry! 

    To answer your question, any bags, coolers, or backpacks taken into the theme parks must be no larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high. Since your hydration backpack falls within those requirements, you should have no trouble. And, good thinking to want to be hands-free! I carry my water bottle in my backpack until I want to drink out of it for the same reason. 

    I hope this helps you with your planning for your upcoming Disneyland vacation! Please visit us again with other questions that you might have! 

    Happy Traveling,
