I am using my Thirty One Organizing Pack. Tons of pockets and a place for everything.

I have fallen in love with the Baggallini crossbody bags. My mom, niece and I are all set with a few of them. They have so many pockets and slots and an adjustable strap. We buy them at TJ Maxx and they run $20-$40.
Just got back yesterday and can't say enough good things about my Patagonia Atom bag. I actually got the idea from a similar thread a few months ago. I traveled to WDW with my daughter who turned 12 during our trip and her 11 year old best friend, and they both called it "the magic bag." It seems small, but so much can fit inside of it, and the weight distribution is great. It is truly water resistant (rode Kali and Splash with no issues) and I never felt like it was too hot. The bag itself is very lightweight.
It also has a place for your phone right up front on the strap. My only complaint is that it barely fits my iPhone with the case on, but when I had to I was able to zip the phone all the way, and if I zipped it up 3/4 of the way it was totally secure.
I use the Baggallini Messenger as my park bag, and I love it! It has lots of compartments and fits a ton of stuff.
I use either the VB hipster or my Baggellini cross body (very similar in style to the hipster). I tend to go with the Baggellini more often because of it's fabric and it has a few more slots for cards and such. I do pack a large size ziploc baggie in it just in case of rain/ride water.
I like cross body's because they are already perfectly positioned when ride-time comes!
Vera Bradley hipster for me. Loved it last trip!
Speaking of bags, has anybody seen the new Vera Disney bags?
I use a Vera Bradley Saddle Up bag.... holds everything I need!
I carry an LL Bean back pack. Its water proof so if it rains my stuff, plus its easier on my back.
Le Sport Sac here. I use the backpack and the fanny pacs... everything matchy matchy. Looking for a new one for our trip in a couple of weeks. I keep everything in baggies in case of the rain and it dries pretty fast. I love that the backpacks come with another little zipper bag inside.
I bought a smallish Gucci backpack in NYC 10 years ago and it has been real workhorse for me. Hands free, cute and has worn like iron..still looks like new.
Has an few good size pockets in addition to the bladder compartment. I like the kids being able to stay hydrated without having to stop, dig the bottles out of the bag, spill all over, put the bottles back....everyone can drink while we walk.
I have a cross body strap Coach bag that I always use for theme parks, it's nice to have a long strap and not have to worry about putting your bag down or holding onto a bag. For me, the most important thing is having a small wallet to carry with me throughout the day so that I don't have to carry my normal wallet around (which is ginormous compared to my small Coach bag). I still haven't been able to find a small wallet to carry just some cash and a few cards that I really like yet :/
Yes! DD can't wait until they are available.
I got the Pine on clearance from REI. It's like a Hunter Green, but that color is sold out now. They still have 2 colors left last I checked for $34 (Overland Donner in case anyone's wondering!)
I think it will work perfect!
I ordered the Overland Donner too. It was shipped yesterday, so I should have it in a few days.
I ordered Black. Yes, I had to pay more, but guaranteeing that my husband would be willing to carry the thing if I needed him to was worth the extra cost me.
Hopefully, its as good as it looked on the website. We've tried all different kinds of bags over the years..backpacks, diaper bags, shoulder bags, etc. and none have really been up to snuff.
For those of you who were looking for the Baggalini Crossbody. I saw quite a few at our local Marshall's for $15, so shop around . They had black, teal, red, and navy.
I have also used these bags and they worked great. Although, my VB hipster seems to get heavy as the day wears on.
I'm leaving in two weeks and are planning on using the VB mini hipster. I have a three year old so I still have a large skip hop bag that I carry in the parks.
I have two bags that I really like.
1. The ful peabody mini-sling. I have one that is a light blue color.
2. Travelon sling bag
These are both good bags. I've had the ful bag for several years. It has a zippered pocket on the strap that my family has dubbed "the fast pass pocket".
