My dh always uses a fanny pack. He wears it in the front. It's perfect for him and to help carry things with our big family...camera, tickets, etc. at arms reach.

I have a special fanny pack that's used only for Disney and garage sailing. Never say never thou because in my early 20's I wouldn't have been caught dead in a fanny pack (or fatty packs as we called them). Now vacation starts when I strap on the ol' pack - my peace of mind

Fanny Pack for me at The Darkside only since anything else will have to be lockered.

Disney no..then it is a crossbody bag. But only because I carry more there.

To those that wear them I say wear away! Who cares what others think or say?

Yes all the way

Love them, I even bought a 2013 Disney one this past trip. It has more room than the one I brought. I also use the fanny pack when I set up at craft shows, that way the money is always with me and not in a box or something that someone could pick up.

ditto
since i started using cross-body baggallinis years ago, i'll never go back.
sooooo much easier to carry, holds a lot more, no worries about items falling out, no sweaty waist (yuk) and wrinkly shirts, doesn't hurt my back....i often forget i'm carrying a baggallini, whereas fanny packs were always uncomfortable.

if you ever travel to Europe leave the fanny packs at home!!!
Also the word fanny has a not so nice meaning in the UK. I am sure some of the UK folks are reading this and laughing

Why? Is there a law against them? Or are you just trying to protect us from ridicule?

they aren't used in Europe. Whenever I see someone with one in Europe I know immediately they are from the states

So? I'd still take one. There are people here who don't like them too, doesn't dissuade me from doing what works best for me.

No fanny pack here. I use a crossbody bag and I pack light.

I agree! And I am proud to wear anything that shows I am from the states!
And not embarrassed at all to proudly wear my fanny pack.
I only carry my money, 1 credit card, some advil/tylenol, a travel size sun block and lip balm so it is never heavy or bulky. It the perfect size and I don't have to worry about it. I use mine anytime we are traveling, no matter where we go.

This thread is proof "to each his own" and what works best for some is not always what works best for others

Also as mentioned you do not always need to take off the pack for rides! Found a few backpacks on rides that people forgot to grab at the end of the ride. My DH and I take turns wearing it. Don't care what anyone else thinks- it is perfect for getting around Disney!


Not a big fan of people with overstuffed backpacks.

It has a not so nice meaning in the U.S. too. They started out being called "waist packs", but somehow that has changed to "fanny packs" over the years. I've never understood why they're called fanny packs - they don't go around bottoms, they go around waists.
