    Wait though... Even worse than that is when a ride breaks down... Forbidden Journey broke down and we had to take our stuff out of the locker... And conveniently that was when the employees DISAPPEARED...!!! Oh yeh... Imagine 30 people crowding around those annoying kiosks... And one time I couldn't open my locker... Another escapade... "whats in your locker...?" "umm... My backpack...?" "can you show me your ID in there...? "no... It's in my back pocket..." "well can you explain to me some of the pictures on your camera...?" oh yeh that conversation happened...

    Does Universal make travel bags/backpacks we can hate, too? 'Cause, I would hate them (the travel bags/backpacks) if they did.

    It was quite liberating to loose that diaper/backpack. Little by little we lost the stroller/strollers. Sometimes we rented one at Epcot Mid-day in the World Showcase. My kids being 5 years apart, we kinda started all over again back then. Seemed like forever we lugged and pushed.

    Now I'm feeling the same way about college. Tuition goes on forever........

    (I lost my lipgloss and gum!).
    Gum is not the thing to loose at Disney, it is like Gold.
    After the above trip, hubby surprised me once again and bought me a D&B WDW crossbody bag. Like the one HERE. (I have pink.) I LOVE THIS BAG!!! It is now my "go to" bag for the parks and home.


    Yep, that is perfect! Mine is very similar. Big enough for just me!
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    I stick with my small Disney backpack. It seems to be the right size for everything.

    Actually a heck of a lot better than a few of the Disney backpacks I've seen.

    For my first time in the park without "baggage", I used a D&B WDW wristlet my hubby bought me. Like the one HERE. However, I found it too small and it did not zip (I lost my lipgloss and gum!). Of course, they have since started making ones WITH zippers. I'd recommend one with a zipper than the one I have.

    I have a D&B WDW & Cruiseline handbag which I love but wouldn't take to the parks. I REALLY love that crossbody bag! Didn't even know they had those. I am pretty sure I will have to get one while I am down there!

    Then my husband and I always have a camelback water carrier on our backs... Mine holds 1.5L of water and is small enough to keep on my back when on rides (only ride I have EVER been asked to remove it was at Universal). As we travel in August that 1.5L goes quickly so we fill up at water fountains. Saves us a fortune :-)
    I like the camelback idea! Do they keep the water cold at all?

    That is completely insane!

    Re: Travel bag/Backpack in parks

    I usually carry my Nike Livestrong backpack. I almost always carry it because I travel in the cooler florida months so in the morning you need a sweatshirt but by the afternoon its pushing 70's or so. it's nice to be able stow hoodies in there. Also I carry extra camera stuff, ponchos, deodorant, and merch if it is the day before we check out. I don't think I could go to WDW without a bag.

    Although I would like to get something a bit more comfortable to wear. I prefer the 2 shoulder strap kind and I want a chest strap as well. Anyone have any suggestions? The last trip took a toll on my back from lugging around so much junk.
    Disney World is not just a place, but an experience.

    Camelback is fab. We find the water stay cool for around a couple of hours which is extended when we added ice to around 3/4 hours. However we fill up with fresh water whenever we pass a water fountain.
