What kind of purse is best?

I'm going back to Disney World in just a week and a half for my honeymoon and I'm trying to figure out the best purse to carry that will be big enough for my Dslr as well. I have gone with my daughter and always carried a backpack full of her things and a stroller but this is different and she's not going to be going. Need help deciding!

There are a lot of "camera" bags that could easily double as a "park pack". If you are a Vera Bradley person, there is a camera bag that has all the necessary padding as well as extra room for essentials during the day.

Overland makes some really great park bags. The Donner bag is very useful and versatile. Has space for just about everything.

Sherpani also makes some great bags for park trekking. Zappos.com is a great place to look at bags, get a feel of how big they are and what they might hold. They can be on the pricier side but great place to look. REI.com is also a good resource. Also ebags.com. They have a "comparison chart" feature that lets you put all the bags you are interested in a chart together so you can compare features!

Good luck and Congratulations!!!!

I have a Pacsafe SlingSafe from Zappos.

It's perfect for camera, cell phone and small wallet.
You can wear it across your chest or around the waist like a fanny pack.
Security likes it too and they laugh because I usually have the smallest bag going through the gates.

one of those cute small purse backpacks might work for you... (Coach has some awesome ones) It would have room for your "must haves". Then you look fashionable AND your hands are free

We always use either the Vera Bradley minihipster and it holds everything we need for the day, phones, sunglasses, small wallet, small sunscreen. If we want to carry more we usually bring a coach tote purse they have small and large sizes.

I use my Vera Bradley mini backpack, it fits my Canon DSLR Camera plus my extra zoom lens, my wallet, and my small cosmetic with a mini deoderant, aspirin and women items.

Thank you all for the responses. I think I might try to go back to the Hallmark store tomorrow after I get paid and see if the camera bag is still there which was on clearance. If not then I will use my hipster bag.
