    Hi, me ad my family have planned to go to wdw in June. I can't wait. Only 35 days. We have a 11year old girl 15year old boy and a 6 year old girls. I just have one question. would you suggest a fanny pack or a small backpack?

    I've done it both ways. Generally I found that the fanny pack worked better during the years when I also had storage in a stroller. The fanny pack allowed me to keep my valuables (wallet, small camera) on my person when we went on the rides, but with the stroller I still had a place to put an extra sweater or small purchase.

    Now that the kids are older (as yours are), I find that the backpack is the better option for me. I still need to carry the wallet and camera, but I always end up with other random things to tote around the parks: a bottle of sunscreen, water bottles, an umbrella, etc. Having the backpack makes dealing with the detritus of theme park touring easier.

    Hope that helps.
