    I carry my ticket, my driver's license, credit card, cash and a camera. I carry it in a small waist pack.

    Ticket, ID, hotel express pass, a form or two of money.
    Camera on a crossbody strap b/c it's big (looks like a DSLR but it's just a point and shoot)
    Sunscreen in a small bottle.
    Generally some protein bars just in case someone in the group is in need of something.
    Water bottle. During our September trip we brought in an Igloo backpack cooler full of water b/c we don't like having to wait in line to get ice water. (that's a pain in the lockers, though, even though it's not overly large)


    I tend to use a lanyard for the cards and money; my current configuration is a Ravenclaw "school tie" design lanyard that they sell at the parks (DH and DS have their own but different Houses) with a clear, thin Witz-brand waterproof case on it.

    If we have the cooler backpack then sunscreen goes in an outside pocket and the protein bars go inside. If we don't have that, someone carries a smaller satchel-type bag.

    Question about carrying things and riding rides......We haven't been since 2009 and you had to use a locker if you had a bag or purse unless it was around your waist.

    Is that still the case?

    I just found the answer to my question. Here's the link in case anyone is interested.

    I don't like using the lockers, so if it doesn't fit in my pocket, it doesn't go.:rotfl: While I wouldn't be caught dead wearing them around here, at Universal I always wear a pair of cargo shorts. My small point and shoot camera goes in one pocket, my cell phone and a small lip balm in the other, and then I have a small Vera Bradley zip ID that holds my AP, a CC, DL, and a small amount of cash that fit in an upper zipped pocket. Sunglasses are on my head or in my hand.

    In a lanyard around my neck : express pass, park ticket
    Small waist pack or cargo shorts: cell phone, sunglasses, Drivers license ,money etc
    I don't want to deal with lockers at all so if it doesnt fit in the pants or the waist pack, it doesnt go

    i only take my hotel key which has charging allowed, the express pass, ID, and a few bucks.




    i sometimes put the above items in a lanyard that i wear around my neck.


    but, if i wear cargo pants that day, i have the above items in the pocket. (no lanyard then)


    if i don't want to wear the lanyard or cargo pants that day, i stuffed the above items in my bra.

    I carried a backpack. There are 4 of us (one is still in diapers). I had

    Tickets
    Phone
    ID's
    Hotel key
    Towel
    Diapers
    Wipes
    Sunscreen
    4 pairs of sunglasses
    2 large bottles of water

    The backpack was never a problem. Because of the 2 year old, the two adults in our party never went on a ride together that didn't allow packs. So we just switched off. There was nothing overly heavy, so the pack wasn't ever a burden. Worked great for us.

    Any counter service will give you free cups of water, no need to carry drinks.
