Earplugs are especially good at times to ensure a good night's sleep, too!

Also,

-Airborne (or your favorite cold preventative)
-Dental floss (don't forget to bring it to the parks if you're going to have a turkey leg!)
-Disney Dollars
-portable DVD player for the plane or car ride to WDW
-tea bags or hot chocolate

that's all I can think to add.

Just an idea...

Whenever we travel we make a little id card of each of our kids. We print a 2 x 3 pic of them (current pic) and then we write their DOB, height, weight, hair color, eye color, etc... This way if anything happens and we get seperated we have an updated info of them for police or anyone trying to help us if we get seperated. I know this may not seem like a great idea but I know if I plan that "it could happen" it usually doesn't.

That sounds like something I'd do =] I don't have kids but if I did I would do that!

I believe there is a class action lawsuit regarding Airborne's claims to prevent a cold. I don't know all the details.

But we still use it and find it effective. I know some people prefer Zicam products.

I knew it was something like that! Zicam works pretty well too.

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

In the days before digital, we would snap a polaroid of them each day so we would know EXACTLY what they had on that day, now a digi photo will do in the event that they get lost.

What is this for?

Also, Moleskin?
Moleskin is a padded bandaid that you can find in Walmart or Target or any drugstore in the area where they have items for your feet. It comes in a roll and you cut the piece the size you need it if you start to get a hot spot or get a blister. There is adhesive on the back, so you just pull it off and stick it on the area. It is padded more than a bandaid so gives much more protection. I usually "precut" several pieces and slip them into my bag for the day in case we need them.

What a wonderful and helpful thread !

I admit I didn't read thru all 5 pages, but I'll add a few things just in case they haven't been mentioned.

1) Power strip

2) Ginger capsules for motion/air sickness

3) Suction cup hooks for any tile area

4) Extra nightlights

5) Disposable cups with fitting lids and straws

6) USB cable(s)

7) Fresh lemons and a plastic knife for tap water

If anyone packs toiletries in their bags, make sure that you have a ziplock bag filled with toiletries under 3 oz. The TSA has become real strict with that lately.
