First thing to know is that Disneyland Paris is that if you are visiting Disneyland Paris for the day and have large pieces of luggage, you can store them in the Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy train station.

You should not bring them with you into the parks.

Instead, plan to bring a smaller bag, like a backpack with all the park essentials.

There are a ton of backpack options available, but the key to finding the best backpack for Disneyland Paris is to look for one that has the following features:

Lightweight

When it comes to looking for a backpack, you are going to want to find one that is lightweight.

You are going to be carrying it around for an entire day and it will probably be weighted down with things you pack inside.

In order for you not to suffer from back and shoulder pain, you want to make sure that the backpack isn’t too heavy when it is empty.

Padded Straps

You want to make sure that the straps on your backpack are padded.

This is going to make a HUGE difference in how comfortable it will be to carry your bag on your back all day.

The last thing you need is to form blisters on your shoulder from a bag that has too much friction against your skin.

Adjustable Straps

Another feature to look for when deciding on a backpack for Disneyland Paris is adjustable shoulder straps.

Not all people are built the same, so having a bag that can be adjusted in terms of your straps is essential.

Lots of Pockets

When looking at backpacks, we have determined that the best backpacks for Disneyland Paris have multiple pockets.

Chances are that you will be carrying a lot of things like autograph books and ponchos and let’s not forget things like Disneyland Paris souvenirs that you don’t want to damage.

To keep it organized, having pockets for various-sized items will help you find what you are looking for easily.

Don’t forget to look for a backpack that also has a water bottle pocket. These come in really handy when you need to access water in a pinch.

Waterproof

Those traveling to Paris may want to consider a waterproof backpack.

Paris is known to get rain showers no matter what time of year you visit, so you may want to purchase a backpack for Disneyland Paris that won’t let water get on the things you have packed inside.
