I think it looks good!! Maybe some muffins, crossiants or other pastry which you could eat on the go? We always get small sweets like mints of tic tacs to eat in line. Are you taking your shampoo etc with you?

Oooh, mints/tic tacs are a great idea!!

Yeah I love Aussie shampoo, so will be taking that, as my hair is really troublesome!

I see it is your first time onsite. I am sure you are excited! I have never stayed onsite and can't wait.

What made you choose Animal Kingdom Lodge, if you don't mind me asking?

No, I don't mind at all!!

Well I just love love LOVED the look of both WL and AKL and really wanted to book either for our trip, but they did cost a lot, so we orginally booked POFQ.

Then once all that was paid off I kept checking AKL/WL prices to see what the difference would be. (Was always about 400/500) but one day I had a look and AKL was less than 300 more and WL had gone up to like 600 more. (If I booked now for my trip it'd be 2k more! So I don't know if I caught a good day between deals or what!)

I had just gotten a bonus at work so I jumped on it! Lol. I absolutely love staying in nice hotels, and it jsut looks so unique and also a wonderful contrast to the busy-ness of the parks. Just really seems right up my and DFs street as we love animals. He is SO excited at the prospect of seeing them every day, and he keeps telling everyone how on our first night he is going to go and use the ngiht vision goggles. :)

Someone once give me a tip to take Liquid Soap, as the soap you are provided with is in a bar form and consequently gets stuck in ladies rings etc.

I therefore always order mine from GG with the rest of my delivery :thumbsup

You are pretty organised. What about tea/coffee, my dh can't live without tea. Have you got your sun cream? We also ordered some youghurts for breakfast. Also if you want any alcohol you can request some.

:) Thank you.

We aren't really tea drinks, I might take like 6 bags of peppermint just in case I fancy one, but rarely have hot drinks unless it's a cold winters day (hopefully unlikey! :lmao:) Nor are we big alcohol drinkers. (Although the lapu lapu pineapple is definitely going to get the better of me one night this trip!) All Jack requested was twinkies, so he's happy! Lol.

I have stocked up on loads of suncream with all the deals around at the moment. :) Got a great buy one get one deal on the all day Piz Buin. :)

It's a grocery delivery service. :) Perfect for folks without cars in FL, like me. :) It's had really great reviews from everyone I know of who's used it.

As Torsie said its a delivery service. You place your order a few weeks before you go and choose a delivery slot and they deliver it to your hotel.

I used it for the 1st time last year and it was great. Would highly recommend them

One thing I can think of is margarine if you use it.
We love American peanut butter so that is a must for us as well as some jelly (jam!)

Do you need knives and spoons? Or are you taking those with you.
Kithchen roll or napkins.

We go a bit on the candy too popcorn:: but bring most of it back with us for friends and when we get the post Disney blues :sad1:

Hope you have a wonderful time - AKL is lovely (never stayed there but have visited) and I hope to get to stay there Dec 2010!

Thanks for the input everyone!

I didn't include cutlery as I have heard that there's plenty to help yourself to in the AKL QS restaurant (plastic type) SO I figure when we eat down there we'll jsut grab a couple of spares and some napkins too. Maybe a bit cheeky but Disney have had loads of money off me in the alt year, add the wedding to it and I'm sure they wont begrudge us some plastic spoons! lol.
