What to Bring to Disneyland

1. Backpack.

The most important thing to bring with you when you are going to Disneyland is a backpack! Disney is great when it comes to bringing in purses and backpacks into their theme parks. Most theme parks don't allow full sized backpacks but Disneyland does. Another awesome thing that Disney allows is bringing your bags onto the rides themselves. This is great because this means you don't have to leave your bag anywhere out of your sight.

You want to bring a backpack to Disneyland because you won't be able to hold all of the things that you should bring in with you. It's also nice to have a place to put all of your souvenirs. Backpacks can be safer than purses since they can't be lost as easily.

This is a great backpack because it has many different compartments and even a place to hold a water bottle. The comfy shoulder straps are a lifesaver because you'll most likely be wearing the backpack all day long.


2. Water bottle, snacks, and food.

Most theme parks don't allow outside food and drink, Disney does. Make sure you don't open your water bottles until going through the security because sometimes they won't allow opened water bottles. If you don't like to spend all your money on snacks and food within the park simply just bring some in with you!

Try to bring snacks that will provide energy. There's a lot of walking to be done around Disneyland so granola bars are a much better choice than candy bars. Don't bring anything that needs to be heated up or stored with refrigeration. Try bringing things that can be easily eaten while waiting in line so that you don't have to waste time eating at a table.

3. Weather related items.

Depending on what time you go to Disneyland will determine what kind of weather related items you'll need. Disneyland is typically hot and it's common for most people to be out in the sun all day long when visiting. This is why a hat and sunscreen are important.

For colder times you might want to consider bringing a poncho, jacket, and/or umbrella. These are all things that should be kept in your backpack when you're not using them. This is why you want to bring a full sized backpack and not a mini one.

4. Comfortable walking shoes.

Even if you take the train, monorail, or street cars around Disneyland there is still a lot of walking to be done. Wear comfortable walking shoes to ensure that you'll have a pleasant time. Don't where heels or dress shoes because you'll end up being uncomfortable. Wear shoes you've worn before as well because it wouldn't be a good idea to try and break in a new pair of shoes at this time.

5. Camera or camera phone.

Most people that have cell phones these days have a phone that also has a camera on it. If you don't feel like the camera on your phone is good enough or if you don't have a phone make sure to bring something with that can take pictures! This will be a very memorable time and it's important to capture the special moments on film. There are many photographers throughout Disneyland that will gladly take a picture of you with your own camera.

When going on rides, especially water rides, make sure your camera, and your phone, are secured in your backpack. It's a great idea to actually put your electronic devices into plastic baggies and then into your backpack to protect them from any water.

You don't need to get too fancy with the camera. It's nice to have a stand alone device that's just a camera though.
