Packing for a fun day in a Disney theme park can be tricky. Whether you’re visiting Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort, or a Disney Park in another part of the world, there are some items that you are not allowed to carry in with you. If you arrive at a park and realize that you have one of these items, if possible return to your car and leave it in the trunk. If you can’t do that, tell the Security Cast Member at bag check that you forgot about something in your bag. In most cases you will be allowed to check the item and then pick it up on your way out. Save yourself a little bit of time and trouble, and make sure that you don’t have any of these 13 items. There is nothing listed here that you will need for a fun day in one of the theme parks.
I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
