If you had told me 10 years ago that fanny packs were going to come back in style, id has laughed in your face. However, like many trends, the fanny pack craze is back. Not only is it back, but it is also even more stylish than the first time around.

There are whole outfits and collections released directly from Disney and Universal with trends fanny packs! Retailers like BoxLunch, shopDisney, Danielle Nicole Handbags, Loungefly, and more have some fun styles to wear in the parks.

Fanny packs work for several reasons. Let’s say you want to be handsfree to take pics or carry a beverage, maybe you don’t want to carry a large bag (getting your back all sweaty), or you just might want to keep your belongings close to your body for safekeeping. You don’t even need to wear them around your waist! They work as cross body bags as well!

We put together a light list of items you’d want to consider to bring with you in your fanny pack for a day at the parks!


  • Tissues- I’d get a small pack or take some from the resort and fold them to conserve space.
  • Sunblock- The sun in both Florida and California can be intense
  • Chapstick
  • Pain reliever & antacid- I usually bring a little baggie of Tylenol or Advil that I can refill as needed
  • Gum- you never know when you might need some
  • Band-Aids- one or two for a blister
  • Sunglasses
  • Small wallet for your money/ID/credit cards/Annual Pass
  • Hand sanitizer- I usually bring a small little travel size
  • Extra disposable mask- you never know when you will need a backup
  • Fog wipes for your sunglasses
  • Fuel Rod/cell phone charger

Take a look at all of these stylish fanny packs at the parks!
