    1st visit to DL in Sept and staying at the GC. Wondering if I will need to bring a backpack for the parks, or will it be close enough to just walk back and grab things as we need them, such as jackets? Thanks so much

    Hello Lori!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you are having a magical week!

    Staying at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is such a treat! I love how close it is to the parks. They even have their own entrance to Disney’s California Adventure Park, making it a breeze to go in and out of the park if you need to stop back by your hotel. 

Disneyland Park is a bit more of a walk (but still close) and for that reason I would advise bringing a backpack into the parks as my own family wouldn’t want to pause the fun to have to run and grab something.

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
