Mobile Park bag and hand luggage. First time with no push chair

So the children will be 6 and 9, and it will be the first year without a pushchair. Not sure how my son will manage as he has zero stamina and hates the heat (August visit so it will be hot!) Although my daughter will be9, she has asd so often sat in pushchair last time when it got too much (hood down and hid) and we get her through the crowds. Next time she will be far too big for this. We may end up buying one if my son struggles because when he is tired he is zero fun!. If not how do I down size all the park essentials so me and DH can carry them. No point the children having own park bags as I know ill end up carrying them.

So our essentials are:
Money, phones, sun lotion, drinks, snacks, cool towels x2, anti bac, wet wipes, poncho/pac-a-Macs, ear defenders, misting fans for children and portable charger.

So what bag do I get? I need something thats not going to dig in, be too sweaty and is waterproof. Preferably has a few compartments so its easier to find things. I can also use it for hand luggage as well. My husband has a ruck sack for himself so he will take drinks/frozen waters and snacks. The heavier stuff.

Thanks

Ive tried all sorts of bags over the years but has settled on Kath Kidston fold up ruck sacks. Probably other places do them too but Ive had mine from there. They are light. Big enough but not too big. Showerproof. Washable. Foldable. Comfortable. Unless youre going super light I find these have worked best for me. Weight is distributed and they fit on all the Disney rides.

Id go for a backpack, be much easier to carry things around. Also maybe get mini sun creams and anti bac wipes to save a little space.

I'd also go with a comfy back pack and a bum bag for phone, or smaller items etc. Think about renting a locker if things are too heavy to carry.

Our daughter was 8 when we went still bought cheap buggy on eBay and left it there, yes she was too big for it and only got in when very tired or we put her in when we knew she would not keep up on long walk but had icebox underneath.

We swear by the Decathlon backpacks

Only a couple of quid a go, and they hold a surprising amount.

Mo usually has one on, and I can easily throw one on the back of my scooter.

I would consider a pram for your 6 year old. We always use one that has a huge hood so the little one can sit in the shade. Grumpy, hot, tired 6 year olds are not fun lol
Our youngest will be 7 when we go next year and he is already very tall for his age so it will be his first trip without a pram!
I am going to take suncream, small pack of wet wipes, tissues, lip balm with sun factor, camera and thats it.
Also planning on taking lots of brakes with some free iced water!
I think my husband will wear a back pack, I am certainly not carrying one lol

Hi

Just wondered which buggy you use for the older child. Our GS will be 5yrs old when we travel in August and think we will use a buggy in case he gets over tired. We used one of the cheap umbrella-type for our trip in May 2018, but think he might be a bit big for that particular one this year. Didn't want to pay a lot for it because it won't be used after this holiday. Thanks in advance.
