Hi everyone, I am hoping to get some information from those who have been to the Universal parks before. I read on a blog that bags are not allowed on rides, unlike Disney, where they allow you to bring your item / stow it in front of you. The blog said that Universal will provide a locker to store your bag for the ride only. The blog writer had a backpack, however. He also mentioned that the locker storage get a little time consuming / troublesome.
I am wondering if all bags / cameras / hats / sunglasses / other loose items must be locked in a locker, or do they allow smaller bags? I am planning to bring a small crossbody bag, which is about the size of a women's long wallet but it has a strap. It holds the essentials and I would really prefer to keep this with me while on the rides. Has anyone brought a small bag on the rides? Would they ask for my small items to be stowed in a locker too, like if I brought my phone only, or my sunglasses? Thank you.
