Being female, I use a cross-body bag. My husband wore cargo shorts. We don't go on water rides, so I wasn't really worried about things getting wet. If it rains, we duck for cover.
what are you jumping in the pool or something? i dont think youll ever be able to convince me that a fanny pack is a better option then "the pocket" haha, i think most pairs of mens shorts made in the last 15 years comes with cargo pockets that probably have more storage space than a fanny pack.Anything that needs to stay dry, but that you want on your person the whole time (cameras, cell phones, etc). You can temporarily put your sunglasses in there without the risk of crushing them in your pocket. You name it.
Mine is a camera bag that goes around my waist, but really is a glorified fanny pack. I don't wear it the WHOLE time sometimes it is clipped onto my stroller becuase it makes me sweaty! I keep my camera, gum, tyelonal, bandaids, photpass cards and change for pressed pennies in it....and Pacifiers! THis will probably be our last trip with the paci though.
It heps me hold the things I need and be hands free when I am away from my stroller so I can wrangle my kidlets. ANyone who cannot appreicate that can just NOT appreciate it and look away! My Hubby even has a REAL fanny pack the he likes for the same reasons! Mine is MUCH bigger though....
And I am a 38 year old Woman!!!!!
I used to keep my tix and FPs in one of these and you can guess what happened. The little plastic sleeve tore off while we were on Tom Sawyer's Island and I didn't realize it until we were on the raft heading back. We turned around and when back to the island. When we got there we found the sleeve, but it was missing our tix and 3 sets of FPs. Disney replaced our tickets and one of the CMs gave us FPs for Splash, but it still took about an hour out of our day and I learned my lesson. We now keep tickets and FPs in a purse or in my dh's wallet (which he usually keeps in a buttoned cargo pocket in his shorts).And by the way...my idea of uncool is a lanyard with little plastic sleeves that keep my tickets, credit cards in clear view of everyone else. I know Disney is a pretty safe place but I'm not about to over test it.
They were what I had back in the 80s when I was a kid, so I left them in the 80s with my permed hair and triple-layer socks
