I am a habitual tooth brush forgetter. A tooth brush is a necessity in my book.

This is probably the only reason I'm glad we drive to Disney - I hate Driving (DH hates flying so we drive), but it sure does make it easy to take the extra stuff. Especially since we go for over 2 weeks.

I buy 4 brand new toothbrushes early in the planning stages and throw in my tolietry bag, along with a new tube of toothpaste. I don't touch these - until we arrive in Florida.
That reminds me - I need to start picking up things here or there now for my trip next summer. I try to buy this kind of stuff and throw in my bag. Less last min stuff to buy. It always costs a fortune at the last min. buying stuff you need. I figure getting some of the basics helps.

Didnt read all of the posts...

so sorry if these have already been suggested,

but I suggest Body Glide and a swim towel (the super fast drying ones that swimmers use) to wipe off stroller or yourself after a quick rainshower or wet ride.

Just a bit of info that came across my family recently. My aunt got stuck in IAD because of weather. Her cell phone battery died with all the calls from her to my parents and vice-versa. So a word to the wise, pack your cell phone charger in your carry-on in case something happens and you need to charge your phone.

I may have to rethink whether or not I want to do this
I LOVE anything with goat cheese. Actually, I'm thinking about getting a goat!
My aunt would give me coke and some pecans to keep me quiet

I would just add that it would be good if that was the NON Drowsy dramamin!
Also, I would take a pair of scissors for the moleskin to cut it. I always cut some pieces and keep a couple in my day bag. That big ole hunk won't do you any good in the park or room if you can't cut it to put on your foot

Premade envelopes for Mousekeeping.

What is this for?

Also, Moleskin?

not sure if you are still checking this thread but the earplugs are for 2 reasons. 1. many young kids dont find the noise from the fireworks too pleasant and 2. many kids get swimmers ear very easily so ear plugs ward that off.

Subscribing...

I'm going to read the whole thread and then add my own ideas, if any.

Great thread!
