    First time DL family here- what items are MOST important to bring? 3 kids 7, 12, 13. Thanks!

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Adrienne!

    You're as welcome as can be here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, so thanks for your great question! I cannot wait for your very first trip to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Your family is going to create the most magical memories together. While you won't need to bring much to have a great time, I'll give you some of my necessities when we visit the parks. First, keep in mind that all items will be checked upon arrival by security Cast Members so make sure you look over the official Park Rules to see what is permitted. I also always plan on renting a locker for the day in the parks. This is where I can store any items I don't need all day, plus lockers are great places to keep souvenirs and merchandise. You can purchase a locker for one low price and access it all day long.

    I always recommend checking the weather and bringing layers for cooler evening temperatures. I like to also bring some small snacks if we need something while waiting for attractions. Granola bars and trail mix are easy options. In the California heat, sunscreen, SPF lip balm, hats, sunglasses, and a refillable water bottle are must-haves. You can always grab complimentary water cups from Quick Service restaurants to refill your bottle to stay hydrated. Since so much can be done on mobile devices with the official Disneyland app, I also always suggest bringing a portable charging battery for phones. This is probably my personal number one necessity. It allows me to keep utilizing my phone for Disney MaxPass, Disney PhotoPass, and of course posting my travel updates on social media for friends and family.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other vacation-planning questions. Have a Fantasmic day!
