Our family pretty much has it down to a science now that our DD is older and we do not need alot of stuff to carry around. I dislike the lines for checking bags so we try to go with no bags. If its hot, we have straps that hold our water bottles and with the size of the cameras today, they fit in our pockets. How about you?

If it would fit in my bag, I'd probably bring everything including the kitchen sink. Here is my bare necesities

A bag that will fit:

-wet wipes
-hand sanitizer
-a tiny pill case with my son's seizure meds
-a glow stick or flash light, been stuck on dark rides too many times with my youngest who is scared of the dark.
-tissues
-at least one bandaid
-and a cooler of frozen water bottles in case ds overheats. (I've ordered a cooling vest for him to wear that we hope will help!)
-camera

I carry my bag that I got as a gift from a fellow Disney lover (I forget what you call them, but they are like a backpack, but they are two strings and very light). I put my camera in there (unless I'm using it), our key cards, my cell phone, a washcloth and sunscreen and my envelope with money/credit card.

In a very small cross body bag I carry...

camera
cell phone- for lines app
poncho
enough Tylenol and Ibuprofren to get through the day for my daughter and me
gum
chap stick
hand sanitizer
Bandaids and neosporin 2 go
cash, tickets and cradit cards
I just found out I am diabetic 6 weeks ago so this trip I also get to carry a glucometer. (I checked it fits)

I also just got a VAPUR water bottle so I will hook that on my bag. I love it.

I like reading what others bring, you can learn so much.

Tink, I could have used a glow stick a few times back in the day.

clandrum, I found out I was diabetic a few years ago and brought my meter with me. I started walking everyday back then and pretty much have it under control with diet. You walk so much at WDW, just be careful of low sugar. In the beginning, I used to carry sugar tablets for those occasions. I had to help a man one time get out of the CSR pool who was experiencing a low sugar convulsions. His wife was tiny and could barely hold him up. I couldn't believe the amount of people that just walked by and didn't assist. All of a sudden these men came out of nowhere to help, they were WDW CM's. They laid him down on the pool cement (this is June and I had to wear sandals to walk to the pool) and gave him some juice. He kept mumbling he was looking for me but we had never met.

Kathy, my DW is the only one to carry a bag. It sounds like your contents.

The DW usually carries a medium sized shoulder bag with waters, a couple of snacks, camera, hand sanatizer (the wife goes nowhere without hand sanatizer ).

I have a small pin bag with a shoulder strap that doubles as my pin lanyard. There is a spot for my cell phone, some sort of pain medicine Excedrin back and body or advil in case my back flares up, disney KTTW cards and cash.

I just read a tip from someone that I thought was very good.

Hint: What your first photo should be of at or before your trip to Disney World.

I always take a photo with my contact information for home and my WDW resort, that way if my camera is lost and turned in the guest services they know how to find you.

AWESOME advice, Buzz. I think I will do it this year, especially since I'll have my camera and my son's camera.

My dh loves a workout. He brings a big backpack chocked full of frozen water bottles. I don't know how he does it. Walking around WDW all day with that thing on his back. Of course it does get lighter throughout the day. He also swims a mile and works out before we leave in the mornings. I don't know where he gets it from...lol. Navy days I guess. I wish it would rub off on me. I just carry a baggallini with everyone's ticket, cc, drivers licenses, lip gloss with sunscreen, my camera, wet wipes, and photopasses. I try to pack light.

We have our "vacation backpack" that we throw everyone's stuff in. Now that the boys are older we can take turns carrying it, but DH usually ends up with it. Included are:
water bottles for everyone
ponchos if it's supposed to rain
medicine just in case
chapstick
gum
autograph books
phones
Plus there's room if we want to put our pin lanyards in or if we've brought jackets and we want to put them in.
I got a little zip up id wallet last trip that I put everyone's tickets in and carried around on me in a closed pocket of my shorts- made it easier to take them all out for fast passes.
