Keep your ID, cards, and cash handy and secure with a PassPorter PassHolder Pouch, a lightweight, six-compartment pouch with an attached neck cord.

'I admit I wasn't all that sure I would really 'needed' the PassHolder Pouch. Even my husband was hesitant to use it, but after the first day on our trip, we couldn't imagine our entire vacation without them! Our Key Cards, receipts, and money were kept save and with us at all time. Even with the rain, it kept everything dry. A must!' -- SandiF from San Jose, CA

Fastpass+ Tip for Epcot
"On my last trip to Epcot, I was given this tip by a cast member at Innoventions. If you want to get your FastPass+ you should ignore all of the spots in Future World. Go to Norway! There is a cast member walking around with an iPad and he/she can do your FastPass+ reservations for you, and we only saw one other group trying to get FastPass+ there. (Editor's Note: Any Cast Member with the lime green Magic Plus icon on their shirt carrying an ipad can help you with FastPass+!)"
