    my thought, get a large duffel bag and shove a kid in it. i mean, at security, once a kid pops out of the bag, do you really think they are going to check any further?

    The security bag check goes quickest if your bag isn't too deep and if it doesn't have a ton of pockets. You can help speed up the process by having your bag ready with all it's compartments unzipped.

    To be completely honest, I don't think the inspectors do the most thorough job going through bags. If it takes 5 seconds, that's a lot of time. And I've also found that if you have a female item *ahem* in your bag and get a male inspector, they usually spot it and you're on your way..no questions asked. The inspection is done. hehe.

    When we go to the parks, I usually have my wallet, sunglasses, my digital camera, a little bottle of sunscreen, and of course my pass in my purse. I've never had a problem.

    If you have a deeper bag like a backpack, take out any other zippered cases from it like camera cases and have someone in your party hold it that doesn't have a bag. It will be quicker!

    I saw those online @ ebay but no where else and I decided instead of paying like 5 or more dollars for each one to make my very own. What I did was buy ID holders and Disney stickers,rub ons, and sticker letters. My main character is mickey, DF is pluto, DM is donald, Dsister (6) minnie, Dsister (19) Belle. I will post pics so you guys can see.

    I have to agree with what has already been said. A backpack that isn't too full and ready to be inspected goes pretty fast. If you don't have a lot of smaller "packages" inside that need to be opened - like a multi-pocket, large camera bag inside the backpack- that helps because you don't have to open that up too. Have a great time!

    we've always taken a backpack in the parks and it takes like 2 seconds if you have all the compartments unzipped
    and we've only ever put our hoodies sweatshirts and all of that in them so maybe that is why it was quick
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. - Walt Disney

    I usually either take just a camera bag or my backpack. If i'm doing the autograph thing, I bring my backpack with a camera in it, some snacks, a pen or two (for autographs) and maybe a poncho if there's a chance of rain.

    Hope this helps some

    Personally I think if it cant fit in your pockets then its not worth the trouble to bring in. If you have a lot of stuff where cargo pants. I dontthink the line that the bag checks are really worth it.
