    Hi there! I am wondering what we should plan to pack with us for the day at Disneyland. How convenient is it to carry around a backpack? Is there a place to leave it when we are on the rides?

    Hi, Jennifer! Welcome to planDisney

    I love your question because packing a bag for a day at the Disneyland Resort Theme Parks is one of my favorite pastimes.

    The kind of bag I take to the parks depends on a few factors. If I know I'll be at the park all day, I bring a backpack because I have more things I want to have with me. However, if I'm planning to take a midday break at my hotel, I'll usually pack a smaller backpack or belt bag.

    It is feasible to carry a backpack during your park visit. Keep in mind that you must bring your bag with you to all the attractions you want to experience. Having a comfortable bag is the key, and it's also a plus if it's cute!

    My must-haves for a park bag:

    • Reusable water bottle
    • Hand sanitizer
    • Sunscreen
    • Sunglasses
    • Mini first aid kit
    • External battery charger
    • Slim card case
    • Ear Hat or Headband
    Another option is renting a locker during your visit. This is a good choice for those who need to wear a backpack but don't want to carry all their essentials during the day. There are various sizes and locations available at the resort.

    I hope you find this helpful, Jennifer. I wish you the happiest visit to The Happiest Place on Earth!

    Your Pal,
