Question Girls, what do you carry in the Park?

I know I have seen a thread on here before about what kind of bags ya'll carry in the park.

Backpacks
Crossbody bags?

Brands?

Pictures?

TIA

I don't carry a bag at all. I just load up my DH's cargo shorts pockets with everything we need for the day!

Ticket
Debit card
ID
Lip balm
Cell Phone
Sunglasses

If I feel the need, I have a simple nylon drawstring bag to stash stuff in.

I just had the funniest thought with this
What if its that time of month and he gets searched sorry but imagining the horror on my DH's face put me in a huge case of the giggles!


To answer the question I have a small camera case that has extra pockets. Its maybe 6 inches. I put my camera in it when rain or water ride is in my near future but it also holds my ID and money. I add a small tube of SPF lip balm as well. Hubby carries the rest and I call him my pack mule. There are times we split up so I like making sure I have my own stuff with me.

I have a little drawstring type backpack thing....made by Nike...but im sure there are tons of other brands. I would recommend hitting up a sporting goods store and looking in there or maybe Walmart or Target have these too im sure. They expand nicely to fit my camera, sunglasses,wallet,phone..etc.. but they are small and not bulky..easy to carry on rides!

I am a BIG fan of my Overland Donner! I think it's pretty fashionable for a park bag and it holds everything I need! There are side pockets for carrying water and/or an umbrella. The front flap has a padded pocket for your cell phone or glasses and there is a small mesh pocket that I use to keep my KTTK Card in. The shoulder strap is adjustable so you can sling it across your body, (even someone Pooh sized and tall can sling it!) and it's small enough that you don't have to take it off on every ride. Here are some pictures of mine:




The style has changed a bit since I bought mine, but I think it's still close to the same.

I carried a small, comfortable backpack with me. I found it easier to just put it on and forget about it being there. Inside I keep my camera, poncho, umbrella, sunblock and a couple bottles of water. I keep money, cc, license in my pocket and sunglasses on my head. Of course, when my DD was smaller, I carried A LOT more. I do not miss that part of her being younger at all lol.

Last year I tried to carry as little as possible. If it couldn't fit in the pockets of my shorts, it didn't go; ID, park tickets, room card, debit card, lip balm, and my camera went. On days I couldn't fit my camera in my pocket, my boyfriend's cargo pockets worked perfectly instead.

I had one of these that I carried on a Spring Break trip, but for the summer trip, when I had less fabric on my shoulders (wearing tanks/speghetti straps), the strap on this bag bothered me.

I got a new bag for our recent trip and it worked out very well. It had space enough for everything, and would expand as needed to carry camera, autograph books, wet wipes, contact rewetting solution, etc etc. It made by Kipling and called the Eldorado small shoulder bag. The dimensions say it's only 1" deep, but since it is made of nylon, it really expanded.







Whenever we rode a wet ride, I just pulled out a folded up gallon-sized ziploc bag and put my bag in there, just to be sure.

We did get caught in the rain and the bag got very wet. Only the things in the outside zippered pocket got damp. The rain must've made it through the actual zipper. But the zipper pocket close to my body was okay.

I found mine on sale at my local Dillards.

I use a cross the body shoulder bag from Fossil. Everyone laughs b/c it is my official WDW bag..I use it every trip just for my trips to the world. It is like a khaki color so it matches everything and fits my camera, small travel wallet, spf lip balm, hand sanitizer, cell, and sunglasses. Love that bag b/c it also keeps my hands free for shopping, eating, rides, etc.

What I do whenever I got to ANY theme park is either load up my cargo pants pockets with stuff that I need like a wallet, ticket, cell fone, etc. But if you have a camera I would carry like a small backpack or one of those sport bag things that you can tighten up with the strings...I'm not really sure about what its called at the moment (Lol.) but I would use one of those.

On our last trip, I carried a Vera Bradley mini-hipster. It held my lip balm, ID, room key, phone, small camera and a little bit of cash. I wear it over one shoulder, across my chest.
