The only time I wear cargo shorts is at the parks - they're perfect. Although I did buy a couple of plastic clips (souvenirs from the Smithsonian) that let me clip drinks bottles onto my belt. I only ever use them at the parks too. Getting back to the money-saving ideas, I'm soon going to do some sums about purchasing some non-expiring Disney tickets in advance. I think it may be cheaper in the long run to buy a quantity at the current price and use them as/when I get out there.
