We can do a DIS meet for HP land!

I can see where people could say it's not as baby-friendly. There is a kid's area in each park: Dr. Seuss and Woody Woodpecker's Kid Zone. But overall...not so much. The gripe I have about Universal is that they have people who walk around and try to get you to participate in market research for random things. It's really annoying!

Vera Bradley

Quick question ladies:

Does anyone have a Vera Bradley bag? I was looking at the mini-hipster because I can get it for a great price. What will fit in there exactly? I really only need my camera, cash, KTTW card, and maybe some sunblock and my wallet & passport for when I have to check-in on the cruise. I was looking at the regular hipster and I think that may just be too big to lug around day after day.

Any feedback would be appreciated!

Hey Jenny! I bought a mini-hipster back in the spring. I LOVE it!! I've carried it around quite a bit, and I can fit my camera, pen/paper, IDs, cash, chapstick, and gum. You may or may not be able to carry your wallet depending on how big it is. Your passport will for sure fit though. I'm going to buy a regular hipster too and just pick which one to take based on where we're going and what I'll need that day. I love my Mini Hipster though! Here's a pic of mine:

I have too many Vera Bags. I have the old Hipster (it's bigger than both the mini and the hipster that's out now) and I can fit my life into it- plane tickets, KTTW, camera, wallet, passport, iPod, etc.

From what I've heard and what I know about Vera, you'll be able to fit everything you need in the mini, but if you're worried, go to a place that sells them, bring all your stuff and see how it fits!

Good luck! They are having an exclusive online sale- check it out!

Thanks for the feedback! Basically what you described is what I'll need to carry around the park. As for the port, I'm thinking I'm only going to need my passport and I'm going to be carrying around a tote anyway for my FE gifts so...I don't think I need to go big. I think I'm going to get the Riviera Blue pattern. It's on sale for $16!

I think I'm going to go with the mini. If I have expendable cash before the trip, I'll get the hipster too. Why not? As of right now though, the mini is just what I need.

Ooh, I'm in for a HP DIS meet next year! I can't wait for them to finish the HP area over at IOA!

Be careful, Vera Bradley is incredibly addictive!! I started out with the "Little Besty" and then it spiraled out of control. I now have three bags. My idea was to just go online and get one for our trip.

Ok, we got four for the DIS HP trip! When I go out to Universal for work, I'm going to snap as many pictures as they allow (if any!) of the HP area. And ask a million questions. Promise.

I never noticed Vera Bradley bags before I joined the DIS. Now I see them EVERYWHERE! I have one of the mini-zip wallets and now I'm branching out to the bag.

Ooh, can't wait to see the HP pictures!!

I was the same way. In fact, I swore I would NEVER buy one of those bags. Now, I have three.

You need to get a hidden camera and put it somewhere on you so even if they won't let you take pictures, you'll be sneaky and still get them!!
