holder for cards, camera, etc?

I was going to make a key fob for my kttw and id....but then I realized I'll also be carrying around my camera or phone for camera purposes and a wave phone for my kids... what do you carry it all in? small purse/backpack??? I don't want to carry my big everyday purse all day on the ship. Any recommendations?

I've used a Vera Bradley mini hipster in the past.

Just bought eBags Terrace Mini Bag that I am planning to use on our cruise in a few weeks (and at Disneyland later this year). The size of this new bag is perfect for the few things I need on ship (or in park) and the strap is long enough to wear cross body so I don't have to worry about putting it down and forgetting it somewhere.

I don't carry the wave phone, but I have a Vera Bradley Tech Case that my camera fits in perfectly and there is an interior pocket perfect for KTTW card and Drivers license and a bit of cash if I'm going off the ship - Very compact and a nice wrist strap.

That's why I usually buy clothes that have pockets. I wear a lanyard for my KTTW card, and carry my camera in my hand, with its wrist strap on (you never know who's coming around the next corner).

Any purse/bag you can wear crossbody. I have one that is just big enough to hold my camera and sunglasses along with my KTTW and chapstick that I wear crossbody to keep my hands free.

we use string bags, the kind that you wear on your back with both arms in them. they are light weight and easy to sling on and off, don't take up much room, holds tons! we bought several at wdw a few years back and I purchased another from there last oct.
you can purchase them at most sports stores and I suppose they would be in places like walmart. 19.99, cheap as chips. if you have a sewing machine and a scrap of material you can actually make them with little effort.
no matter what the weight of your items, you hardly remember its there.

I am giving these out as FE gifts http://www.travelproducts.com/water-safe.html with our cruise name personalized on it. Useful when you do not want to leave stuff in a bag.

I have one of these, padded and rugged. It's cheap so I don't mind if it gets wrecked.

However, I carried 2 iPads (great for restaurants and lineups), wave phones, waterproof camera, and some other things so it might be too big for you.

As a first time DCL'er, I brought lanyards and had the cards punched at guest services.

I haven't been on a cruise in 9 years but I plan to use my Vera Bradley hipster bag. It's a cross body bag and holds quite a bit for its size.

I bought this for my upcoming cruise. Very lightweight and cute. Can be worn as a fanny pack or cross body. If the url doesn't work it's a Lilly Mae fanny pack.

If you have a bigger camera I highly recommend this bag. It is super easy to get the camera in/out from the side and has a couple larger compartments to hold things like a wavephone.

I had never heard of a Lilly Mae fanny pack so I had to google it--so cute! I'm a visual person, so I'd rather see it in person. Hoping to find a local place/boutique that sells them. :-)
