Disneyland Purse?

Or all of you ladies, what kind of purse do you carry? Is it big or small? Fanny packs are out of the question because our group is wearing the same outfit for numerous pictures. Is is a shoulder bag? A barrel maybe?

Thanks

I usually wear a small cross body. A Dooney sketch bag to be precise. I don't carry too much with me in the parks usually. Just AP, money, ID, Chapstick, and hand sanitizer. There are some bigger cross body bags out on the market if you carry more.

a small backpack with a drawstring similar to this one:

I brought one I had gotten at a Rockies game and it broke on our 2nd day so I bought a better constructed one at the Emporium that worked great. My shoulder gets tired carrying a heavy purse all.day.long. like that.

I love my baggalini messenger bag. They are not expensive, light weight and durable. I think it is a perfect size. It is big enough for snacks, water bottles and even a light sweater but it is also small and light weight enough that if it is not full you don't feel like you are dragging around a big backpack. It also has several separate compartments so it is easy to stay organized. It has a zipper compartment on the strap that is perfect for keeping tickets or passes. Super convienient when grabbing those fast passes. Can you tell I'm passionate about my baggalini. I love it for travel in general but it is perfect for Disney.

That is very cute!!

Normally I don't carry anything -- I let the DH carry the backpack. lol Much easier (on ME) that way.

Crossbody bag

I plan to take a Baggalini crossbody bag. I like to carry a small wallet, camera, phone, sunglasses, lip balm, small hair comb and pony tail holder. Probably some kind of hand sanitizer/and or wipes. I can fit a small snack or two as well. We are traveling with a stroller for DS so I can leave anything more on that.

Add me to the small crossbody bag list. Which bag depends on my mood -- Baggalini, Lesportsac (Kasey style), D&B, etc. They hold what I need for the parks without being heavy or bulky.

Will it hold a Flip Video camera, iPod touch and a digital camera? I don't know EXACTLY what I am packing yet, but I know that it will not be a small amount.

I use a Baggalini Large Wallet. It has an adjustable strap that can go cross body, over the shoulder, or around the waist. It has slots for CCs and APs and FPs and two zipper dividers inside. It has two pocket outside that I use one for a camera and one for a phone.

I always take my mini borealis North Face Backpack. It's small, but fits all of your essestials and is lightweight and comfortable. Best small back-pack ever and extremely durable. I have had it for about 5 years and it still looks brand new. There are little compartments on the side for bottles of water, or baby bottles/sippy cups, so it doubles as a "diaper bag".

I use a small cross body bag to hold my key, and a very small backpack for my Nikon.

I just use my camera bag. Its about 6 x 6 x 9, and has a long strap that I can carry across my body if I want. It holds my camera, money, ID, ticket/ pass, chapstick and a small thing of sunscreen. And it has a little thing on one end that has a mesh water bottle holder that you can either use or tuck inside when you dont need it. Its all the more I need.

I use a crossbody Le Sport Sac bag, the Kasey in a really cute Small World design. It works for me just fine, I can carry a bottle of water (or 2), lip gloss, phone, pen, pins (for trading), sunglasses, hand sanitizer and a few other little random things.

I also use a small crossbody bag. Right now I'm using the Sherpani Zoom, which has seperate zip compartments for everything, but is very flat. We also carry one light backpack for the family, and we all take turns carrying it. It's for larger things like water bottles, sunscreen, camera, etc. We keep it small and light.
