My sister found a WDW fanny pack at the thrift store back home and bought it with DS4 in mind. It is actually made for an adult and when I pointed this out, DH was like, "Noooooo! You are NOT wearing that!" With my neck issues, it might not be a bad idea.... Or, he can just carry all my stuff

Ok, Vera Bradley peeps. No one has really answered my question on why you guys love her bags so much. Are they washable?

I'm not sure we have an outlet near us but I will have to check and see. I'm intrigued.

I only have one vB bag but I assume most people just like the fun patterns. They are washable, although the one I got have leather handles, so did they did not hold up well.
For Disney though, I am looking at purchasing one of the Le Sportsac bags.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Yes they are washable (cavet-there are a few styles that have a rigid cardboard type form, these cannot be washed nor can the leather/trimmed ones).

I love the small wristlet type things because they do not hang on my neck (removeable wrist strap I loop it around my belt loop then reattach it to the wristlet), but the mini hipsters are very light and I change sides often and don't have a load of trouble with it.

There is a VB outlet at the Premium mall on Vineland. Last trip I was there a day early and went to buy a few mini hipsters (old style) my friend when she joined me LOVED the mini hipster and carried my new one until we could go back to the mall so she could buy one herself then used it for the rest of the trip.

I have a VB hipster in the red deco daisy print that I bought online a few months ago that I am going to take this trip. It is big enough for my dslr camera and some other odds & ends. I am trying to decide whether I will get some of the new Disney prints or go to the outlet store on my trip.

I carry a VB tote and wristlet every day to work. I totally ditched a regular purse and just use the wristlet which holds by iphone just fine. I would like to get one of the new Disney ones and maybe a backpack for my camera.

19 days to decide!

I just called them 2 minutes ago to change my breakfast to a lunch reservation because I finally got Tusker House for breakfast. My lunch time was booked on the Disney site but I got exactly what I wanted when I called.

Check out this item at Target: Mossimo Supply Co. Alexis Small Crossbody Handbag - Black.
Thanks for all the ideas!!!

I didn't even think about losing my charge Pluto so I probably will be bringing my small cannon too!

I think I decided I will use this little Lilly Bloom over the shoulder bag that I saw at Belk. The bag itself is waterproof. I tried walking around with the wristlet types and I think I would rather be hands free.

Just got a reminder e-mail from Disney Destinations to customize my MB by tomorrow so they can ship them. Hey, Disney, I have had the bands since September 20th. Will they really issue another set? Anyone else get a 2nd set?

So if you have 2 adults and one child on the DP, the most adult meals you can order is 2.

And as a reminder, it is against Disboards policy to discuss ways to circumvent Disney policy. Just be careful because typically discussions about kids using QS credits for adult meals can get threads closed.
When we were there last month, we were told that QS meals weren't designated as kids or adults (by cashier CM at Contemporary Resort). Whether that is true or not, I'm not sure. We were just trying to use up all or QS credits before we left to go home.

We didn't get a 2nd set of MBs, but we did get a notice from Disney that they would be shipped soon - about a week after we'd already received them!

Hey everyone!

It just now dawned on me that I set up all of my families FP exactly the same. For example, all 5 of us for Space Mountain when I am pretty sure that DD (7) isn't going to be interested. On the reverse, DS (13) at Enchanted Tales with Belle.... Although that might be hilarious to watch.... It is fun torturing the 13 year old....

Did you split yours up?

I did split some up, hence the need for texting to meet back up again. The last couple of days though we just used FP+ for rides we could all do to make things less chaotic.

I am making everyone go to ETWB, DSs are 14 &12. My payback for TOT. And if they complain, I am volunteering them for EVERY role!

I am going to try and split a few up, after I get my main choices down.
