    What do I do with my backpack and purse when I am on a ride?

    Welcome Home, Cara!

    I am thrilled to welcome you to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your fantastic question about Walt Disney World Resort Attractions!

    You will be able to carry your standard-sized backpack and purse into all of the Walt Disney World Resort Attractions that you wish to enjoy. I have taken my belongings on the most thrilling of Attractions, such as Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You will find that many Attractions have restraining pockets or areas for you to keep your belongings in. 

    I recommend carrying a cross-body purse. I love using cross-body purses as they can sit by your side on most Attractions. You can keep your backpack by your feet or in available pockets. If you have any concerns, please discuss them with a Cast Member before boarding the Attraction.

    Mom's Tip: Kali River Rapids at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park is one of Walt Disney World Resort’s “wettest” Attractions. You will find complimentary lockers by the entrance of the Attraction. These lockers are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is also a covered area in the middle of the raft where you can keep your bags if you decide to carry them on with you.

    Cara, I hope I have helped answer your question. Please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again if you have any more questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. We are always here to help you!

    Wishing you an Unforgettable Vacation,
