Some things we're packing (hope there are no duplicates!):

Cue cards so we can write down our ADRs for the day, any special tour/parade times, brief itinerary, etc. These fit easily into pockets, purses, bags, etc.

Printouts of our touring plans (we used touringplans.com this year).

Light sweaters to bring into the parks with us because some air conditioned restaurants can get pretty chilly!!

Febreeze to keep our room and clothes smelling fresh.

Change for the laundry machines.

Calling cards, so we can phone friends and family at home without paying crazy long distance rates from cell phones.

Fanny pack (I know, I know, but Disney is the only place I wear mine! They're so handy! )

Passports (if flying internationally).

Printouts of all reservation confirmation #s, ADR times and #s, etc, just in case things get a little mixed up.

I think that's about it! Time to start packing tomorrow, we leave on WEDNESDAY!!

We bought a small bottle of Tide. Good for 2 loads. It was $1 at Target!

I think I noticed a couple of things missing from the list...

- dryer sheets (good to keep clothes in your suitcase smelling nice too) - I either buy one of the little packs from the laundrymat or just put some in a baggie...

- fabric softener - again, the little packs from the laundrymat or a small bottle.

- I didn't see that anyone put body wash and sponge thingy down...

- individual cereal boxes for breakfast in the morning

- I also bring plastic spoons if I'm staying in a regular non-DVC room for stirring coffee/creamer, eating cereal, etc...

- I also bring a candle with me too!

- Makeup remover?


This is a great thread everyone! Great ideas!

AND it helped seal my argument with my husband for why I got an Owner's Locker this year!! He never realized the amount of stuff that we take with us. Seriously - like an entire suitcase of non-clothing items!!

Okay once again I have updated the front page - I only have 14 days left- and now alot of shopping to pick up additional items. Thanks again for all the wonderful ideas and helping us all to remember what to pack - this has been great fun.... Keep the ideas coming, and before you know it we will all be packed - they will see us coming at the airport !!!

We've missed moving this thread to the Disney "tips" forum where it's a better fi than here on the ThemeParks board.

Thanks,

I have added the wrinkle release spray. Our thread got moved and boy did this thread die off ... or do we really already have everything in our house in our luggage? I would like to also say we are bringing everything but the kitchen sink ... they have one available at beaches and cream though !!

I see deodorant- but how about the CLINICAL strength they have out now!

Summer in Florida!

I prefer the scent of Sure over Secret.

I can't remember if this is on the list, but for those of us with kids how about child I.D.'s of some sort.

How about a case of bottled water? If flying, you can have this shipped to your resort ahead of time.
