I've only recently become interested in getting a lanyard, and only after I found how convenient it was at the Gumball Rally. I almost never take my purse into the parks. If I'm going to be there all day, I'll take my backpack. At the Rally, I found that keeping my pass in my lanyard made it quick for me to pull out my pass at the entry gates as well as the Fastpass machines. I can also see how it'd be convenient when you're going to use it to get your discount at restaurants and shops. As such, I think I'm going to invest in a lanyard and use it for this purpose from now on. Does it look a bit nerdy? Probably. But if it'll make things that much easier, I don't see a problem with it.
