I go to the parks a lot! So much so, I do not want to take the time to repack each time so I keep one bag "Disney ready" at all times. This may be being over prepared or Disney crazy, but I am really okay with that. So here is what I have in my bag!
Let's start with the basics. . .
Although I have a magic band I always keep my actual ticket in my bag AND my passholder card in case there is an issue or I need to use my card for proof for a discount. I also snag a few times guides and a map or two (no I don't really use the map, but just in case). I also play Sorcerers of The Magic Kingdom so I keep my collection of cards with me most times. And, because I'm on my phone a lot I keep an external battery (or two) as well as a plug. Furthermore, I don't travel anywhere without my camera and gear so that's stored in there also. I like to keep my camera equipment in a soft padded extra bag inside my backpack so my gear is not bounced or banged around to much.
Little extras just because. . .
Now, have you ever been in a dire need of something and found no vending machine or cast member having any on hand? I have and this is why I keep a small supply of tampons, Ibuprofen and Pepto Bismol in my bag. Also in case of emergencies, my credit card or their credit card machines not working I keep enough cash to buy one quick service meal or food off property if there really is a huge emergency. I also keep a bottle that I can refill with water in case I do something crazy like wait in a three-hour line for Flight of Passage. Lastly, I keep one or two small snacks, wipees and coins to press because, you never know! Occasionally if I was feeling it and dressed up for the parks I will keep make up to touch up in my bag to.
Now keep in mind I don't have children, but if I did I would have extra of basically everything. Diapers, snacks, shades, waters, and something to keep them occupied at dinners that don't have characters or entertainment! There has been so many times that I have seen a mom pull a magical toy, craft or snack out of her bag that has saved her child from a huge meltdown. Be THAT mom and prepare. It looks VERY worth it!
