44 days and counting! Ordered light backpack last night. What are must haves for backpack in the parks?

Snacks, water, umbrella/pancho, hand wipes/sanitizer, sunscreen, light jacket, money, tickets, room key, camera. That's what's always in my backpack! - Andrea84  705.5 #10 9:05AM
I mean, to carry in the backpack  - cdenib  4.8 #447 9:27AM
Thanks Andrea84, just saw your post. How wet is wet on Splash Mtn? Do o need to put my phone in a ziplock bag inside my backpack? - cdenib  4.8 #447 9:30AM
I always put my phone inside my purse which is inside my backpack and nothing ever gets wet. Wouldn't hurt to use a ziplock also, I think most people use a ziplock when they keep their phone in their pocket. How wet can vary on your seat, etc, I have never been soaked but my face and hair always get wet! - Andrea84  705.5 #10 9:44AM
Hmm.. Maybe a ball cap in case of scary hair! Thanks! - cdenib  4.8 #447 9:57AM
Sunblock, hat, sunglasses, a poncho and bags in case of rain or water rides. I put my wallet, camera and phone in them to keep them dry. This last trip I also brought microfiber dish towels so we wouldn't have to sit in wet seats. They are so absorbant! - flyingpenguin  9.5 #256 10:08AM
Dont forget dry socks. Who wants to walk around in wet socks. Yuck. - Grumps10  6.8 #319 10:27AM
I always keep my phone & camera in a ziplock bag inside my backpack at the parks. Also any thing else I wouldn't want to get wet- daughter's autograph book, her sweater, etc. - perdita  71.2 #84 10:29AM
Everything Andrea said and tissues, pens, autograph books and chapstick :) - mzdisnee  535.3 #15 11:22AM
We never Carry anything but a small crossbody purse like thing. Because who wants to lugg around a bunch of things you most likely won't use. I say do that!! It makes it easier on you and your family :) - maddielucy1524  24.3 #148 12:05PM
I agree with maddielucy I always have all this stuff and we never use it. No one ever eats the snacks I pack. Only water. - Bakerjars  250.9 #34 12:54PM
@bakerjars: that is so funny that no one eats your snacks. We pack an extra suitcase filled with snacks because my 3 boys eat a snack in every line. If we didn't bring our own snacks we would easily spent $400 on smacks for the week. But I do agree I cart around tons of stuff we NEVER use. Rethinking what I need to carry around for our January trip. - disneyrunmom  231.6 #1545 1:22PM
Water, poncho, sunscreen & lip balm, camera & phone. Everything goes inside a plastic bag or ziploc baggies inside the bag. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #18 1:24PM
@disneyrunmom we flew and my friend drove this last time and they carried a rubbermaid container of snacks to wdw and now they are bringing it home for us. - Bakerjars  250.9 #34 1:32PM
I carry a midsize crossbody bag. I don't put my phone in a ziplock bag; just inside the purse. I put my bag on the floor of Splash Mountain under my legs. We've gotten soaked on that ride, but my phone has always been fine just inside the bag even if the bag has gotten wet. It is somewhat protected under my legs. I wear Birkenstock sandals @ DW most of the time; if we anticipate doing any water rides, I wear crocs or fitflops which can take a dunk & dry in a blink. - SueBoo  18.6 #172 4:36PM
