    There are two of us coming to WDW in Aug and we would like to bring a small backpack with lunch/camera/water/wallet etc and were wondering if it would be possible to pack these to rides and leave somewhere safe instead of paying for lockers?

    Hi Kolbie!

    You can definitely bring a small backpack into the parks. I always carry a couple of water bottles, my gigantic camera, some snacks and a lipstick with me. And even when I have my kids with me and am packing lots of stuff, I've never had a problem taking my bag on rides with me. There is always some kind of mesh bag to place your stuff in or a nice big area for you to put it at your feet.

    I don't suggest just leaving your stuff out in the open like at the front or end of a ride while you are in line, etc. However, some people do leave things in their strollers at the stroller parking.

    My friend and Disney dad, Jonas has some good details of exactly what you can bring into the parks!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
