    Travelling with a 3 & 7 yr old and will carry belongings through parks in back packs as well as a stroller. What do we do with our bags/personal items when on rides and attractions? Is there a secure area to leave them? Anything we shouldn't leave? Tha

    Hi Dana!

    I always bring a backpack with me on every trip to the theme parks.  It really comes in handy in ways that I wouldn't have originally imagined.  There are lockers in the parks, but I've never had a problem taking my backpack with me on any attraction.  For the more thrilling attractions, such as Space Mountain, the method of choice is to hold on to it tightly or put your foot and leg through one of the arm straps to hold it securely to the floor!

    With regards to the stroller, look for stroller parking outside of an attraction.  I recommend tying something to it to make it easily recognizable.  A balloon has worked well for us in the past.  Also, be aware that sometimes the Disney Cast Members will move the strollers around, so if your stroller isn't where you left it, don't panic immediately!  Instead, look around for a huge stroller parking area; most likely your stroller will be in there!  This has happened to us on many occasions!

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
