It seems like I packed EVERYTHING, so I didnt need anything else! But, I do wish I would have packed a little less shoes for just myself! I brought 9 pair (Yikes!) and only ended up wearing the same two pair the whole time at Disney!

Wish I would have brought nail clippers - bought them in the resort gift shop. And more underclothes - we don't do laundry and I ended up having to wash a few items in the sink.

We did bring a TON of snacks and ended up bringing a bunch back home with us.

Blister band aids and more underclothes. Moleskin doesnt work and that is all disney sells for blisters. Also ended up washing under clothes in the sink.. even in December!

I agree with the more underwear thing!!! Double the amount of days you are there and pack that many pairs!!!

I should have packed less shoes for the kiddos and myself!

THIS! I know it's gross to talk about...but that's just exactly why it should be mentioned...because nobody will tell you! Bring double, I agree...even if it doesn't rain and you have soggy skivvies...you're gonna sweat....and you'll have soggy skivvies. It just feels good for everyone to put fresh socks and skivvies on either when you come back to the room for a break or before bed.

Also I didn't think I'd need a lot of socks because it's hot and I wanted to wear flip flops or clogs...but you'll want them for the room. We kept getting those gross worms coming in on our shoes or in through the cracks somehow...and they were everywhere even the tub. Eww. I stepped on one...thank goodness I was wearing socks!

I should add place extra underware in a seperate location.

My best friend was studying abroad in Vienna two years ago and on a long weekend she decided to travel to Ireland with her roommates. When they got to their rooms in Ireland all four of them realized someone had stolen all of their underwear.

Wish I had brought:
anti-diarhea caps... just in case. needed them once and they were hard to find and EXPENSIVE!!!
and more ziplock bags. (used them for tons of stuff like "left overs" just because my kids didn't want to finish thier lunch while we were sitting at the restaurant, didn't mean they wouldn't want those chicken fingers 10 minutes later. also used them to collect "free souveniers" like confetti from parties, and gold Doubloons from Playhouse Disney. used them to store wet clothes from splash areas or rain showers without getting everything else wet... lot's of uses, quart size and gallon...)

Wish I had left home: (on my last trip?) my teenage daughter!!!

I had to giggle when I was reading the comment. I know how teenage daughters can be
Why did you wish you left her at home? I need tips on this, we live in 10 days.

Wish I had left home: my debit card.
Wish I had packed: a pre-paid debit card from my bank.

This worked out great when I went to Disneyland last summer because I knew exactly how much I wanted to spend and wasn't planning on charging anything other than what was already paid for. I'll never pack my debit card again (even for emergencies) because the last time I was at WDW it got lost somewhere between the Chinese Pavilion one night and the Tower of Terror the next morning. I never retrieved it. Lost forever in the Twilight Zone.

Tip: Pack a disposable camera. Some places do still get them developed and you never know when your good camera might malfunction or accidentally crack while you're on a ride. If you don't use it then you have your backup for the next trip or family function.

Uggh!!! we are just in a bad place in our relationship, that everyone I know who has been through it says, we(she)will grow out of. She is Uber jealous of her 2 siblings, especially the youngest, another girl... She is actually not coming on this next trip, and I am suffering tons of Mommy guilt for actually being relieved!!!

But alas, (BIG SIGH) that is a topic for a WHOLE other thread!!!

feel free to PM me if you would like to know more...

I wish we had brought a rain cover for the stroller we borrowed just in case the five year old pooped out. We ended up using the stroller after Day 3, but we didn't have a rain cover, and it rained a lot. DH gave up his ponch to keep the stroller dry, which meany he got fairly wet a couple of times.

I wish we hadn't bought all those expensive blister bandages. We didn't get one blister in our group of seven, and I had bought three packs of those special bandages just in case. I also bought too much sunscreen, but I know we will use that up easily. My famiy didn't mind the taste of Disney bubbler water at all, so I've got tons of Crystal Light Pure packets left too.

Oh well. If I hadn't packed all of those things, we probably wouldn't have had enought, right?
