What to put in a Disney 'gift box' from Santa

We are heading to WDW in august 2011 - first trip for all of us (me, dh, 3 girls and MIL) Santa is bringing a box with some disney goodies for each of us...Im needing some other ideas to fill up the boxes.

DH / MePark bag (either baggallini or something similar)
2011 guide book
lanyards


MIL
Lanyards
planning book

KidsAutograph books
Ponchos
lanyards
mini games for flight / standing in line


Any other ideas of things we need that could be 'gifted' from santa? I dont want to fill up the kids box with too practical of 'needs' but also dont want a bunch of random disney 'stuff' that we wont / dont need for the trip.

How old are your kids? You could do Disney books for them. I am getting my kids Hidden Mickeys and Birbaums Walt Disney World for kids. Or what about pins/lanyards? You can get them on Ebay for cheap!

pins definitely. If they are pretty good readers the "Kingdom Keepers" books are good (but a little scary). A special t shirt is also good (perhaps matching for the whole group?). Disney hair things would also be fun and useful.

Disney t-shirts (disney store might have them or make them for the family to wear), photo album, disney picture frame, disney gift card - those would be for the trip.
For now: depending on the ages of the kids, I would maybe put in a stuffed mickey or pooh or whoever, mickey/friends treats - cookies, chocolate, disney calendar.

I would definitely do the pins and lanyards for them, then, at those ages.

Thinking cap on. Disposable cameras, hairbands/barrettes, autograph books and sharpies for character signings.
