    I'm traveling with my son to WDW alone and I need to bring a small Back Bag containing necessary items that my 6 yrs old may need in the theme parks. My question is where do I leave it if him & I are going on a ride?

    We always need to lug around a backpack/diaper bag with us when we visit WDW too.  It's really less cumbersome to deal with than it may seem.  Here's what we do:

    Typically, we leave some of our stuff with the stroller.  We've never had a problem with theft though I'm sure it happens from time to time.  For our valuables though (camera, wallets, etc), we pack them into my husband's backpack and take them on the attractions with us.  Even on the thrill rides, we've never had difficulty in bringing a backpack on board. 

    Of course, if you don't want to do that, you can certainly rent a locker in the theme parks.  The downside of this option is that you'll need to trek back to the locker every time you need something from the backpack.

    My advice would be to pack only the necessities and strap it onto your back.  Everything you need will be accessible and you're hands will be free.  Have a wonderful time with your son!
