What a neat idea, I'll have to try this! And even better: it will embarrass my 12-year old sooo much!

OK... here is where the MEN can stop reading and move along to the next post...

My advice: even if you don't think you will need it bring *ahem* feminine supplies into the PARK with you. Just one or two, just in case. I was not expecting AT ALL to need them and of course I was UNpleasantly suprised to find I needed them and had to go back to the resort to change and to pick them up. This ordeal cost me at least an hour and a half in the park. My poor husband kept the kids at the park while I went back. I was SO mad at myself! Save yourself the hassle and bring something along...

Thumbs up Body slide

I got a stick of the body slide (is that what it's called?) and it is fantastic! I highly recommend it.

On another note, this year I'm hoping to get a toiletries travel case from LL Bean (it's on my Christmas list! ) It has lots of compartments for stuff, a hook that you can hang it by and a small mirror right inside. LL Bean has free shipping so it's going to be a Bean Christmas!!

Couple of comments. ....

I use the Instead product, and love them. They are so comfortable that I forget I'm wearing it for about 6-8 hours, and then it just feels a little uncomfortable. You need to make sure your hands are really clean before removing/changing it, though...not always a neat situation in a public restroom. I usually take a few paper towels in w/ me or make sure I have kleenex w/ me. I always wear a panty liner w/ these (except for swimming -- they work *Great* for swimming, btw!). They are made of surgical latex (same as some catheters and other medical stuff) so make sure you're not allergic.

Re: skorts -- I find that heavier ones make me feel really hot "down there" (and not in a good way --rather, a sweaty way!). Think about it -- you're wearing two layers of something heavy (denim or sturdy twill). I have a light twill one that is better (but it lacks pockets).

I have some quick-drying men's microfiber hiking shorts w/ cargo pockets that I really like. I can carry a lot of stuff in my pockets (the stuff you shove in there when there's no time to open a bag pocket...maps, change, etc). They are not the most attractive shorts in the world, but I find that most men are looking at my sunburned cleavage anyway (just kidding -- actually I'm not a cleavage kind of gal).

The Colace idea is a good one; I try to stick to Raisin Bran and a big salad every day, but this is a good thing to have on hand. Thanks, great tips here!

Spray sunscreen.....facial sunscreen.......waterproof sunscreen

Go to Morocco and buy the scarf with the dinglies, then learn to wrap it like they do-I walked around with pool hair and everyone said "you look so cool!"

The little battery fan- the palm size hangs off my pack. Got to have that.

Peppermint foot spray- a little bottle for the park.

Wetwipes- both the lady at the next table and I pulled out our wetones out at Flametree BBQ- they get BBQ sauce out of shirts if you act fast.

Clips to hold hair up

Hats to hide hair

Swedish footfile to banish sandal feet/heels. (go to Sally's beauty supply-it's the best 97 cents you'll spend on beauty).

Sunscreen chapstick

Buy a Fan in China and have your name put on it. It's relief, it's exercise.......


And....whatever else you pack - You're never fully dressed without your smile

I like pairing a favorite skirt with a tee,do it all the time! though I am SO past wearing a fannypack ever again!
Sometimes it's a jean skirt,sometime a looser,hippy type,I like them!And they're comfortable.....

Speaking of skirts...
Some short skirt can do double duty as a strapless top. Most look super cute over jeans!! Not sure if this really has anything to do with Disney, but the talk of skirts (I love them as skirts and tops!!) reminded me.

Another double duty dress tip:
I saved my (now five) niece's princessy dresses from when she was two/three, and she'll wear them as tank tops on our trip in May/June.

HA! I love this.......I do this all the time too! And i thought i must be the only one out there......It does save on packing, Just did this when we went to my dd wedding! i took one black skirt that did triple duty!

It is Elastic waist strait and black......1. Regualr long skirt 2. rolled it up to my knee 3. pulled it up as a strapless dress can be worn like that or with a shirt or jacket over it!

AWESOME way to not have to check baggage!!!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely!! I did the same thing for a recent trip to NYC. I love just a little shrug/jacket over the skirt as tops. Totally easy to dress up or down!
