    Hi.. I know this may be a stupid question but, What rides should you ditch your backpack on?

    maybe Kali River Rapids - do they have lockers close to the entrance or at the entrance to the park. Can you just hold it on RnRc and/or TOT???

    Need help so I know what to do when the time comes.

    I keep my backpack with me.

    On Kali, there is a bin (for lack of better terms) in the center with a flip down plastic bin with magnets (I think) that helps keep it down. It is a common bin, meaning everyone can throw stuff in there. It's always worked for us, but if everyone has a bunch of stuff it can get kind of full.

    On rides like Test Track or TOT and RnR, I put it on the floor, and then put my ankle through the strap to hold it.

    The locker thing is one area I wish Disney would take a lesson from Busch Gardens on. At BG they have a small locker area outside of each major ride so you can throw your gear in while you ride.

    Not that taking the packpack is such a major deal, but it is nice to ditch it for a while without having to go to the front of the park all the time.

    Also, I throw a couple of zip lock bags in the backpack, in the even there is something I really want to be sure to keep dry.

    Have fun! :D

    Thanks for the info on the Kali Rapids. I have been to AK a couple of times but never ridden KR. I am glad to know there are bins. I plan on wearing my poncho on that ride.
