    What is the easiest way to carry around your money and things I hate a fanny pack

    Hi Sonya!

    Thank you so much for your question! 

    I'm not a 'fanny pack' fan either, so I totally get where you're coming from!  I've successfully used a couple of different options for different vacation situations.

    1.  When traveling with our kids, I always carry a small backpack--not a full-size backpack.  I put money, ID, sunglasses, bandages, medicine for the day, a bottle of water, phone and other small necessities in it.  Ours is just a bit taller than a regular size water bottle, so it's not large by any means, but holds what we need. 

    2.  When I travel without kids, I carry a small cross body bag, or hipster bag, as some manufacturers call it.  I prefer this type of bag because it more even distributes the weight of the bag, and I've never found myself needing to switch shoulders as I would with a standard shoulder bag.  When walking, I keep it on my right hip, and have everything I need easily accessible.  My favorite one is about 8"-10" square, and has a pocket on the outside where I can easily slide my phone in and out. 

    Thank you so much for letting me help you plan your Walt Disney World vacation!

    Have a magical time!
