What is in your bag?

If this is posted somewhere already, please just point me in that direction. Otherwise, what do you carry in the park - I know the list varies from person to person and I'm just working on my own checklist to make sure I don't forget anything. Thank you.

Talking I tried a few

but I really stick to a backpack that's just a big sack - it's always just me and my hubby - and inside there here goes: our passaports (or valid IDs), 2 bottles of frozen water, one or two small ziplocks with non melt-prone snacks (nuts, granola bars), a small ziplock bag with some SOS medicine (like aspirin, some stomach ache relievers, omeprazole, etc.), the sunscreen can for arms and face, the camera and a little battery operated fan. I also carry a pack of refreshing towells for cleaning hands and wiping sweat from our face - I think it's from Nivea. The car keys got also thrown inside and it's a easy bag to pass the bag check and to store into lockers if needed (splash rides on the parks).

my backpack - sunscreen, ponchos (me & DH), water bottle, camera, small fan (clipped to outside), snacks, bandaids, tylenol, hand sanitizer, glass case and wipes, ziploc bags - for camera & ponchos & left over cookies, apples, chips from lunch.

my cross body bag - $$, tickets, ID, credit card, hotel key, car key, lip balm w/spf15, gum, and phone.

I'm sure there is more, but can't think of anything off hand.

The kid's carry their own backpacks w/snacks, ponchos, water bottles, lanyard w/pins for trading and whatever else they want to carry.

I usually travel solo and carry a small red backpack since it's just me. The outside pockets have my water bottle, hand sanitizer, chap stick, and peppermints. In the main pocket I keep a light jacket, my journal, a few snacks, Benedryl, ibuprofen, and a small Stitch plush who pokes his head out the top. Got to have my little travel buddy.

I'm not a bag person. I prefer to go totally bagless, so have several pairs of cargo shorts that I wear to WDW and Universal. I usually have my cell phone in one side pocket with a quart ziplock for water rides, a small camera in another, then in a front pocket I have a Vera Bradley Zip ID with a little divider thingy in it, that has my room key, a Disney gift card, cc, AP, TiW card, and a $20.00 bill. Also in that pocket I will have a small lip balm. That's all I ever carry into the parks.

I carry a backpack into the parks. Inside is a small Johnson & Johnson first aid kit (I buy these in the trial size department of Walmart or my grocery store, usually for about 99 cents). Someone always needs a Band-Aid in my family!

I also carry rain ponchos for rides like Splash Mountain and Kali River Rapids and of course for the rain. I buy these in the camping/fishing department in Walmart, usually for about 99 cents each.

Trial size tube of sunscreen. Trial size pouch of Wet Ones or baby wipes. These really come in handy, especially when we feast on nachos at Cantina de San Angel in World Showcase!

Wallet, cell phone, sweatshirt just in case. My son is a type 1 diabetic so I also have a bunch of diabetes supplies with me, too.

what to carry

I use a fanny pack and a back pack. The back pack stays on a wheel chair so it can be heavy if needed.

The fanny pack has keys attached to key holder clip, credit cards, driver's license, cell phone, park maps, small container of face sunscreen.

The back pack has two sports drink bottles, crystal light packets, ponchos (if it's going to rain), bathing suit or change of clothes for DS, water shoes/umbrellas/ponchos (if it's going to rain or we're going on water rides), snacks such as microwaved popcorn, sunscreen.

Every day, I take a new picture of the row that we parked and a picture of what clothes DS is wearing in case he gets lost.

We carry what we call "the bottomless backpack" which is very small but holds more than you'd think. It has two rain jackets that fold up into little pouches, rain ponchos, small first aid kit, small sewing kit, small folding umbrellas, light sweater for eating in air conditioned restaurants, various sizes of ziplock bags, various meds for headache, pain, stomach ache, motion sickness, etc. and a little insulated lunch bag with a couple of containers with lids so I can have something to snack on.

I also carry another small bag with my cell phone, camera, spare camera batteries, cash and cards, drink mix packets and tickets.

We went bagless on our last trip (this past March Break) and won't carry a bag again...we loved being able to pass the security check crowd and didn't have a single time where we wished we had something with us.

I held the camera and carried a lip balm, a couple of tylenol and a couple of kleenex in my pocket and DH carried the room cards and a bit of cash in his. The kids carried the autograph book. We didn't need anything else.
