Excellent advice!

Disney Toys again and again

This may sound like a strange item to pack, but when my kids were little, we spent a fortune on Disney toys during our first few park visits (especially during parade time). After returning home, we would pack up the toys until our next trip and then bring them to the park (picture glowing spinning Mickey and Buzz) and pull them out just in time for the parades. They loved them and never really remembered having them the last visit and we didn't have to spend outrageous amounts. Also, glow sticks/necklaces can be bought at any dollar store in packs of 2 - we always pack some because ours are solid colors so we can spot each other when the lights go down and everyone else has rainbow ones purchased at the parks.

Love you idea to pin products! Want to share a link to your board?
Yeah, I thought those sheets sounded pretty good too so I looked them up and it said they were no longer available but try these gel pack things. They are not the same thing though.

http://pinterest.com/tamipa/handy-for-travel/ This is my Handy for Travel board I started to keep track of the products I haven't thought of before. Not too much in there yet, but I don't want to forget all these great ideas! I also have some other Disney boards.

Oh, one thing I brought on our last DLR trip that worked well was a 3oz travel size plastic bottle with a snap top lid. I got it at Target and put liquid hand soap in it because I hate those bar soaps in hotels. This type of bottle was much better than a pump which could get pushed down inside the suitcase. I think I'll be bringing that with me to WDW.

parking lot

This is not anything to bring but I read a few posts here about taking a picture of your return information if you lose the camera. One thing I always do is take a picture of the parking lot row by taking a pic of where it is painted on the end of the isle before hopping on the tram. You think you will remember but inevitably after a long day of Disney magic, you just may not remember.

Just wanted to thank everyone for all the awesome ideas! I always have a pocket size thing of tissues in my bag. Great for obvious reasons as well as emergencies, like no toilet paper in your stall!

I don't have much on there yet, too busy reading these boards and using word to creat plans. Lol

That's odd, they are not on the official Purex website. http://www.purex.com/products/deterg...omplete-3-in-1 Sounds like people should stock up if they want them because they made it sound like they don't make these anymore.

I just followed your board and some of the teacher ones that seemed like they could apply to preschool.

It doesn't hurt to keep an eye open for the purex 3-in-1 sheets next time you're at the store if you know you'll be doing laundry. You must still be able to get them somewhere because I'm always picking the out of the washers in my building. People evidently don't read the signs saying they'll clog up our washers!

Oh wow. I'm surprised Disney hasn't said anything about them then. I've never tried them but I don't think they're made anymore. What you're likely seeing is that someone bought a bunch up the last time a high dollar coupon was released.

If you use powder detergent, or don't mind switching just for the trip, I put a full scoop in a snack sized ziploc then put the baggies in a quart bag.

You can get those tablecloths at dollar stores - I keep one in the trunk of my car.
Nice!
