I too usually do a VB mini hipster or a wristlets that I put the strap through a belt loop. However moms going this trip and usually when I have a parent along I take a backpack or cross body bag to hold stuff so they don't have to carry things.

I do have two new VB items that are great minimalist items both of which will hold my smartphone and a few essentials that I love.

The Smartphone wristlets

Yup, black has it again. I would recommend one of the better shell cases like CASE CROWN. And a screen protector as well.

The ziploc is a great idea, easy to carry all things inside to keep it dry. You may want a fanny pack or messenger bag. They are really the way to go.

I have a small purse that I plan on wearing and have planned to keep it in there but am now wondering if any of you handle this differently.

We will have PP+ too but I know I will be taking my own pics.

Thanks for your advice!
I use a pouch that clips around th waist for cell phone money tums and aspirins lol

lol on the fanny pack. I have one, wanted to bring it and my sister had a fit. She said she wasn't walking around Disney with me if I was wearing a fanny pack. She was the one who got the FD PIN so I had to go with her.

Do like the Vera Bradley mini hipster.

Looks like ill b needing the new dac card. I am still in pt the knees getting better but not better enough. I rented an evc from apple but I DON'T want One. We have 32 days to go. Hoping I can use the evc just to cruis around the resort and back n forth to riverside. With the dac card I can use it like a fast pass and come back at a certain time. That will work because I can't stand in one spot or sit in one spot for too long yet. The new rules are fine for me I don't need to be first to get in as long as I don't have to stand maybe I won need evc in park. 32 days left to heal praying for pixie dustttt

That bag looks cool, by the way.
my sister and I were at the local outlets shopping last year and saw the Vera Bradley outlet had a 50% off sale. It's 50% off the outlet price so a really good deal. Love the number of styles and patterns they have. I can get a hand bag and matching wallet for ~ $75-80 total. I've spent close to that at Kohls or Jc Penney and the stuff is not even close in quality.I only go now when there is a big sale and on your birthday you get a $20 off coupon; I used that to get the mini hipster for Disney.I don't care if the pattern I like is last years; those are usually cheaper.


My sister loves Coach; there is no way I would spend that much money on a purse.

I too have been searching for a small purse (cross body) that would just fit the necessities and I found this at Target for $12.99! It is lined on the inside so even if it gets wet it won't soak the inside. It's perfect!

Check out this item at Target: Mossimo Supply Co. Alexis Small Crossbody Handbag - Black.

I think we will try Earl's. This is our first trip and there are so many things we want to do and try but we will have to pace ourselves and realize we can't do it all. Thanks again and glad you got your earl!!!

I have reservations for Tuskerhouse breakfast on Nov 2. I am trying to prepare for our trip and deciding how much cash to bring. Does anyone know how much breakfast is for 2 adults and 2 children under 10? I have checked allears.net but it gives a price range. I am hoping for something more specific. Thanks in advance

Me and my Mom have rocked the fanny pack since our first trip! And on our solo trip with just me and DH, I'm rocking it again! Not the most stylish, but super practical and does not hurt my neck/shoulder which tends to act up with bag straps.
