Disney Tradition

A few weeks ago, I went on the perfect Disney trip with mom – filled with laughter, music, food, conversation, and a whole lot of fun. Pretty much what I do on a regular basis with her, except with that added touch of Disney magic.

I’d always considered my family to be a Disney family. Dad and I enjoy re-watching the movies together on Sunday mornings after breakfast. My brothers and I always geek out over new releases from Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars. And Disney music is pretty much the only genre of music we actually agree on as a family. But going to Disneyland? That’s for me and mom.

Ever since I was a kid, it was always my mom and I who enjoyed the same things in the parks. While the boys were off riding roller coasters, my mom and I would go on kiddie rides. When my brothers started to outgrow the Mickey shirts, my mom and I got into twinning outfits and Minnie ears. When my dad started to get bored lining up, my mom and I would look for every possible food cart we could sample. So this year, we talked about going on a little girls trip. We decided to dress up, take photos, eat, and ride all the kiddie rides we wanted. And for this very special trip, we decided to go to a park we’d never been to before – Tokyo Disneyland.

What’s in my Disney Park Bag

Since I’m heading to Hong Kong Disneyland in about 10 days time, I figured I’d show you what I take with me inside the Disney Parks. This doesn’t really change regardless of which park I go to, as I pretty much have my Disney routine down pat.

On my last post, someone asked me what kind of bag is the most practical choice for Disneyland. For me, it’s a crossbody. I don’t really like taking backpacks because you need to swing it in front of you every time you need to get something, and I sweat more when I have something stuck to my back all day. With a crossbody, you can choose to make it hands free, when you’re tired you can switch shoulders, or carry it on the crook of your arm or in your hands. Now depending on what I’m going to do for that particular day, I bring different sized bags.

RIDE DAY

For a ride day, where my only goal for the day is to finish all the attractions on my list, I bring a bag like this:

Loungefly

I love this. It’s a pretty decent sized barrel bag, and it’s enough to carry all my essentials without getting a locker. It’s quite sturdy as well so I know that it can survive a good long day inside the parks. Plus it’s Mickey Mouse. Need I say more?
