On my families very first Disney World vacation I did a ton of research and to be honest I over packed. I over packed our luggage and I over packed our park book bags. Having three children under age 7 I feel like it is always ok to over pack because you never know when you might need an extra shirt, shorts, socks, underwear, etc. But when it comes to the park bag that someone (unlucky husband) has to carry around all day long it is not always a good thing to be over packed!
I always pack my super cute personalized Disney tumbler for the stroller cup holder :)
I have limited our park bag the past few years to ensure that A. it does not get too heavy and B. it is only practical items that we have actually had a need for. My park bag used to consist of diapers, wipes, sunscreen, chapstick, camera, camcorder, cell phone, park tickets, sunglasses for all of the children, autograph books, snacks, extra clothes for 3 kids, etc. But that bag got VERY heavy and we found that we rarely needed some of the items we were lugging around. That being said, now that my children are all out of diapers (thank goodness!) it has allowed for a less packed park bag.
My Disney park bag consists of the following items: bandaids, camera, cell phone, park tickets, hand sanitizer, pony tail holders, sunglasses for the children, chapstick and sunscreen. We have started leaving the autograph books in the stroller storage bag along with a change of clothes for each child including a beach towel in case they get wet. I still bring snacks with me but I do not carry them in the backpack. The snacks go in a soft sided cooler that we hang on the back of the stroller.
Here is my park bag
