What's In My Bag for a Theme Park

I thought that it was time for another round of 'what's in my bag' for the theme park edition. With my dream vacation usually being a nice trip to Disney with the hubby (I want to get to all the ones around the world in my lifetime), it's important to know exactly what I need and how to pack it all in. I swear by my Sass & Peril totes to get me around Disney World.


Sass & Peril Tote // Clear Bag for Goodies // Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose
Mouthwash or Colgate Wisps for when I eat Mickey Ice Cream bars and then want to kiss Jason (yes he's allergic)
Advil // Sunnies & Case // Vinymations for Trading
HTC One X+ for impromptu photo taking

A few things to note here. I do take my camera with me, and yes, sometimes it's a pain. Like having the camera bag in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (you can not take a bag on the ride and have to store it!) Disney does a great job allowing bags on rides and having places to leave them, but I find backpacks or anything larger than this tote to get cumbersome. A cell phone is necessary! I really suggest having a smartphone for a trip like these. These are my main apps I used during the time in Disney (available on the Android Store for the HTC One X+ - I don't have an iPhone, but there are similar apps for you iOS users - or the same ones...)


Disney World Wait Times // WeatherBug (it's important to have, trust me)
Google Maps // Instagram

Do you take a bag to theme parks? Or not a theme park person yourself?

  2. I am one of those people who carries a huge bag with everything in it. But when I go to theme parks or concerts, I always downgrade to a small purse just to keep my essentials (camera, phone, money/license) in. My trip to Florida next month is going to be my first time traveling with my DSLR and having to tote it around to various places. My little Leica fit in a tiny purse while being in its own case. I have a camera bag, but it's about the size of a makeup case, so I'm thinking I may need to buy a small case to put just the camera in so it can fit into some sort of purse. The case you have is pretty neat!

  3. I usually downgrade to a fanny pack (but its stylish, I swear!). I imagine carrying a dslr is a pain, but your photos make it seem worth it!

  5. Haha the last time we went to an amusement park I gave Izzy my chapstick to put in his pocket (I was wearing a swimsuit and a swimsuit coverup) and I wore my sunglasses. That's it. I hate lugging things around when I'm at a theme park!

  7. I always bring a bag to Disney! I have to carry everything for myself and the Hubby since he won't be seen with a bag (haha) I love these cute totes! What a great bag to bring! And I need those whisps for when Ethan eats meat and wants to kiss me! HAhaha
