Fanny packs are like a minivan for your waist. Except unlike miniature vans, bum bags are inexplicably in style! And so, as a proud minivan driver, I am happily hopping on the fanny pack train for my next Disney vacation. Certainly, not everyone likes a minivan, but I’m convinced it is the most efficient and ergonomic vehicle ever designed.

Like minivans, fanny packs are also practical. They can carry a lot of stuff and are perfect for storing your wallet, keys and phone. Plus, fanny packs are also easy to wear. They buckle or strap right onto your body, leaving your hands free and also come in a variety of sizes and designs. Equally important, fanny packs can accommodate your theme park essentials without weighing you down! 

Is it better to take a backpack or a fanny pack to Disney?

It depends on your personal preferences and needs. For example, if you are planning on doing a lot of walking, a fanny pack may be a better option as it will be more comfortable to carry. However, if you plan to bring a lot of items with you, a backpack may be a better option as it will have more space. 

But if you’re traveling with kids, you may need the space offered by a backpack. Items like snacks, sunscreen and water bottles add up quickly. However, you can still try out a fanny pack to redistribute the load among your group. For instance, one parent can carry the backpack while the other carries a fanny pack. Alternatively, you can have your kids carry some of their things in a fanny pack.

Can I wear a fanny pack on Disney rides?

Yes, you can wear a fanny pack on most Disney rides. However, a few attractions do not allow bags of any kind, so it is always best to check the ride’s specific requirements before you go on.

Do fanny packs get searched at Disney?

Yes, fanny packs are subject to search at Disney. Specifically, they are treated like purses or backpacks. Of course, this is for the safety of all guests. Security personnel will check your fanny pack to make sure that it does not contain any prohibited items. With this in mind, let’s take a look at our favorite fanny pack recommendations!
