Best Backpacks For Disney World

As you gear up for your Disney vacation you might be wondering how to find the best backpack for Disney World.

Well this post is full of the best options, from fanny packs to heavy duty diaper backpacks, most recommended by folks who have actually tested them at Disney World!

Read on to find the perfect backpack for your specific needs for your Disney trip.

Cooler Backpacks

Disney World is one of the few tourist attractions that allows you to bring as much food into the park as you want.  Bringing some of your own food is a great way to cut down on your vacation costs.

While you can’t bring a hard-sided cooler, these cooler backpacks are definitely allowed.

This Mickey Mouser Cooler Backpack from Target isn’t cheap, but it is so cute I had to include it. Think of it as getting a totally useful souvenir before you even leave (plus you’ll save so much bringing your own food into the parks you can justify the cost, right?)

Disney Diaper Bag Backpacks

If you are traveling with babies or toddlers, you’ll likely want a backpack that doubles as your diaper bag. Here are my top picks!

Best Backpack For Disney World: Mini Backpack

If you aren’t traveling with little ones in tow you can likely fit everything you need in a mini backpack. These are SUPER popular at Disney World and you will see them everywhere, particularly from Loungefly which partners with Disney.

Lightweight Packable Backpack

I have personally used this Ultra Lightweight Packable Backpack from Amazon on my many Disney trips over the past few years and it has held up well! It comes in ten different colors and is super affordable.

I love that it is easy to pack in my luggage if I don’t want to use it as my carry-on bag. It also doesn’t add much weight to my back so it gives my shoulders a much-needed break.

Best Backpack For Disney World: Sling Bags

And the last category of bags recommended for Disney World is the sling bag. While it isn’t recommended for carrying heavy items, it is easier to get into than a traditional backpack because you can just slide it around and unzip.
