A couple of big metal clips to keep curtains closed tight if you prefer a really dark room to sleep in.

All great ideas! We like the pop up hampers (I take one for each person) - then if you want (or need) to wear something again you don't have to dig through the entire family's dirty clothes. It also helps the room stay picked up.

I also bring pop up baskets for the desk/table top. Each person has one to keep their things in.

Premade envelopes for Mousekeeping.

Plastic hangers to hang up wet clothes in the bathroom

Power strip...never enough outlets at the desk in the hotel room.

Clothes hangers...bring em, use em, leave em.

Who exactly do you give these too? What kind of candy and again, who do you give it to?

Another use for small ziplocks, a book I read suggested you put the kids left over food in them for munchies in the park! I would think just like fries or chips - something along those lines.

Don't be so sure. On my family's first trip when I was 7 and my sister was 4, my mom somehow forgot to pack underwear for the entire family.

This year I've added packets of powdered bath soak for sore muscles. ...and a few different kinds of shoes in case I need them.

Dawn dishwashing wipes......these are great for washing out those refillable mugs in the sink in your room. You can also use them on kid's sippy cups so that you don't have to pack as many cups!

DH and the kids, anything else I can buy later.

I try to remember - Sunscreen, flavor sticks for water, pop-up hamper, laundry soap, quarters for washer/dryer and a corkscrew.


The list of things that will really come with us is wayyy too long to post.

I would just add hand sanitizer, hair elastics for mine and my daughter's hair everyday, hard cases to put glasses in and put them in your bag when you go inside or when it rains to keep them from getting broken, a list of any gift cards or credit cards you are carrying and the customer service numbers in case you lose them (you could also leave this list with a family member at home). That is all I can think of right now. Thanks for the great ideas. Keep them coming.

Got to remember Pal Mickey

Also a dish and spoon so that my DD can have cereal in the room before we hit the parks.
