We're staying offsite at a house that has pretty much everything, but some essentials for someone who's never been to Disney with toddlers???

I am definitely bringing ziplocks, glow sticks, moleskin, $1 store ponchos, first aid kit and a ton of wet ones.

Any other ideas are greatly welcomed !

Snacks that you can carry in your backpack to give while in line waiting for rides and plastic containers to carry them in so they don't get crushed. It helps if there is a long line.

Juice boxes that you can freeze and pull out in the AM before leaving so they stay cold at the parks.

Small container of bubbles (like from a wedding) to keep them occupied in lines.

Suntan lotion. (If you forget it you can always get it in the park but it is definitely more expensive.)

A few sippy cups in case your condo doesn't have any.

Some toys from home they like to play with that are small enough to pack.

Have fun!! Jennifer

Oh my goodness you folks are organized! I was just going to suggest the kool-aid singles for refilling your water bottles at the parks. Saves a ton of cash....and my kids love it because it is the only time all year they get kool-aid!!! Thanks for the list too!!:thumbsup2
