Fast Pass Pouches
Like everyone else, you may be slightly worried about losing your precious (and expensive) park tickets – especially if you don’t have ‘Keys to the World’ (a room key and park ticket in one) and wouldn’t be able to prove you even had tickets.
Fabric Pouch (with Cell Phone)
You probably also have money, credit cards, ID cards, and medical cards with you at Disney, not to mention a cell phone (seriously, how did people get around Disney before cell phones existed?).
But park tickets are the most vulnerable to loss or theft because you have to produce them when you enter the park and whenever you use a Fast Pass Machine.
Enter my newest Favorite Thing: Fast Pass Pouches!
You’ll see plenty of lanyards at Disney World, usually around the necks of pin collectors.
My husband and I use ours to hold a clear plastic pouch in which we carry our tickets, money, and other valuables. The pouches have a pocket on the back for a cell phone and we can make calls or text right through the protective plastic.
You can buy lanyards almost anywhere in Disney World, but the lanyards with plastic pouches are harder to find.
(If you want to get yours before you leave for Disney, YourWDWStore has a nice selection.)
But I’m not a fan of plastic pouches for two reasons. First, when I’m moving things around, my cash sometimes ends up on the outside, or an ID or credit card gets turned around so that the information on it is visible to others through the clear plastic. Second, the pouches ‘seal’ like Zip-loc bags. They don’t have a zipper – and that just doesn’t feel secure to me.
My husband and I prefer fabric pouches. Though technically not waterproof, we’ve taken them on ‘wet’ rides like Splash Mountain and so far nothing in them has ever gotten wet.
They’re not easy to find, but you can still get them on Ebay, like HERE , an eBay store. Each costs $5.99 plus shipping, with many designs available.
For those of you that have more to carry (i.e., MOMS) but don’t feel like hauling around a backpack every day, there’s another option (which I just discovered myself in October): a three-pouch shoulder bag.
I use one of these myself because a lanyard sometimes hurts my neck when it’s weighted down with cards and my heavy Droid. I found my shoulder bag in a Disney resort gift shop. So far, I haven’t been able to find them on the Web, though they may be out there.
The Passholder Pouch
One other thing some people like is called the ‘Passholder Pouch’. It’s a bit bigger than the lanyard pouch and can be ordered for $8.95 plus shipping from Passporter.
