Just to circle back on why I had the picture of my ticket! When I picked up my ticket at the resort vacation planing desk a few years ago they told me to take a screen shot of my tickets. It did come in handy the my lanyard fell off on IOA. I was able to immediately replace my ticket with the screen shot of the lost ticket.
I believe they are selling the lanyards and pouches separately at the stores now. I was surprised by this because I always bought a lanyard with a pouch included but now they are almost always sold separately?
I got a package of plastic pouches and lanyards from amazon for the price of a single pouch at UOR. They were super sturdy and lasted my whole trip plus a return visit, and are still in good shape to use next year.
