    Just wondering what is recommended to take into the parks. Going in October and planning on taking a small rucksack, what would u pack? We have quick service dining so food is covered. Also are there lockers available? Thanks

    Hello Lauren! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When visiting the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks, I always consider whether or not taking a bag with various items is worth the effort. Whenever I go with my young children, I find it essential. Despite the well-stocked onsite Baby Care Centers at each of the parks, I find it necessary to have diapers, snacks and various soothing items on hand in case they are needed.

    When I travel alone or go to one of the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks with my wife, I do not take a rucksack. This allows us to speed our way through security as there is usually a special (and shorter) queue for those without bags, and I find that i never really get any use out of it.

    When I do bring a rucksack, I take the following: sunscreen, diapers, wipes, small towel, Disney trading pins, disposable ponchos, camera, change of clothes for kids (in seal-able plastic bags) a small first aid kit, water bottles (which can be filled with ice water at many quick service locations), snacks, autograph books and markers. I can usually pack all of this into a small rucksack that can be taken or stowed on most Walt Disney World Resort attractions. The rucksack will be searched by security before gaining admittance into the theme parks.

    All-day lockers are available to rent at the 4 Theme Parks and 2 Water Parks. The Theme Park lockers are $8 per day for a small locker and $10 per day for a large locker with a $5 key deposit. The Water Park lockers are $10 per day for a small locker and $15 per day for a large locker.

    In addition, there are coin-operated one-use lockers located outside Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios for $1 per use (only quarters are accepted).

    Have a Magical Vacation!
