The JanSport Backpack is a classic, and when it comes to Disney, the Right Pack Backpack is supreme! A large compartment provides plenty of room for all the Disney necessities; autograph books, ponchos, sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, snacks and water bottles. There’s even room for a mister fan (these are ideal for hot, muggy Disney Parks, like Florida, for example). The JanSport Right Pack is the perfect size for the older kids to carry, and then the adults once their shoulders get tired! A fun Disney activity is also pin collecting and trading!

Backpacks NZ- Mickey Mouse

I’ve saved the best for last! Fun and affordable, it’s one for the kids, but it’s definitely worth it. What’s a trip to Disneyland without our ol’ pal Mickey Mouse! This backpack is another great two pocket pack, so it’s super security check point friendly. Bright and colourful, the pack also has two mesh water bottle holders on either side, which saves room for extra souvenirs to be stashed in the main compartment! The backpack travels well not only at the Disney Parks, but as carry-on luggage for the plane too!
