    What essentials do you pack in your park bag for an adult only trip? I’ve always gone with my kids. This is my first adult only trip since having kiddos.

    Power banks, phone cords, ziploc bags for phones, water bottle, granola bars, pins and lanyards, sometimes sunscreen depending when we are there. I can't think of anything else right now.

    I try not to bring bags, as I'd rather walk through the no bag line due to the crowd. However, if I do bring a bag it's during the warmer months. I bring my insulated backpack with a few frozen water bottles, as well as a few cold water bottles and my cooling towel. Not only to keep my towel cool when I'm not needing it (when I'm in a queue, on a ride, or in a restaurant), but to pour the cold water onto the towel as needed and to drink as well. It's one thing to buy a soda for $4, but I find it kind of ridiculous how water is essentially the same price as well. But at least QS gives you free water in a cup.

    Nothing. I stopped carrying a bag about 10 years ago when our youngest child was 4. Now I just use a clear lanyard pouch to hold my phone, credit card, ID, and a little bit of cash. It has a long enough adjustable strap that I can wear it like a cross-body bag or even put it in my pocket while keeping the lanyard around my neck to make sure I don't lose it. I put a lip gloss and a few tissues in my pocket and my husband carries a small portable phone charger in his pocket. We have a small bottle of sunscreen with a Carabiner clip that he clips on to his belt loop. He also usually has a band-aid or 2 in his pocket. If there is going to be prolonged periods of rain during the day or we're going on KRR, I stick a cheap rain poncho in my pocket. If we need anything else, we buy it in the parks.

    Wristlet DH puts in his back pocket which carries my phone, cc, cash, ID, room key and a lip gloss. DH's wallet (one of those that holds his phone) is the same minus the lip gloss:) We also have Apple pay as a backup should something go wonky with our cards. We have seperate accounts which is good since once DH's chip was just toast. He had plenty of cash, but I was glad we had my card and Apple pay to back it up.

    My list is long, but part of it is because I suffer from allergies/asthma. But all of this fits comfortably in my cross body bag:

    Kleenex
    Meds (advil, immodium, tums, benadryl, naproxen, anxiety meds, eye drops)
    Sunglasses
    Small hairbrush
    Phone and back up charger and cord
    lip balm
    small sunblock
    mints
    granola bar (in case I start to feel weird from the heat)
    ID
    Credit Cards
    Cash (more than once I've run into a kiosk that was only taking cash)
    Hand sanitizer
    Personal sized wearable air purifier
    Mole Skin, pre-cut into various sizes

    If I can get by without a bag then that's my preference. On days when I'm over-paranoid about the weather I pack a rain jacket in my bag. If I can't avoid bringing my bag then I also toss in a few water bottles because I like to have water when I need it right away. Everything else I need I keep in my pockets (yay cargo pants!).

    When we’re kidless I bring
    DSLR camera
    Small change purse that holds some cash, credit card, ID, band-aids, hair elastic, Bobby pins
    Small plastic rain poncho
    Ibuprofen (travel size container)
    Feminine supplies if needed
    Phone
    Battery pack/ charging cable for phone
    Lip gloss
    Small pack of baby wipes (Nice if I need to freshen up, clean ice cream off of myself, I have yet to not reach for these while I’m at the park).

    All of this fits into this bag (added a padded insert to protect DSLR) to give some perspective https://www.ebags.com/product/ebags/piazza-day-crossbody-bag--20-wrfid/340526?productid=10553383

    I wear my sunglasses/ ears and carry a water bottle (I drink almost a gallon a day at home, asking for small cups of it all day gets old fast for me)

    We started going bagless a few years ago, and it's been so liberating. We ended up carrying everything our kids didn't want to keep track of. Now the rule is if you want it, it's your responsibility, so the kids typically still bring their small Quechua backpacks with them.

    I have my MagicBand on my wrist, my phone in one pocket, and my FuelRod in the other pocket. Done!
