Suggestions for goodie bag items?

Hi all. My daughters 7th grade class is having a trip to WDW and while most of them are flying, we are driving so are able to pack more than if we were flying. We were thinking about making a goodie bag for the teachers and her fellow students. They are staying on property. I thought I'd ask here for some handy items or what you wished you had?

We were thinking of a bottle of water, a few granola bars (they have lunch and dinner vouchers but not breakfast). What else might be useful that wouldn't break the bank. I've got to make 22 of them.

Disney fruit snacks, kool aid singles (mask the gross flavor of wdw tap water), band-aids for blisters, lance's cheese or peanut butter crackers, Purell or other anti bacterial lotion, Chapstick, mini sunblock

Look at the Bath & Body Works, lots of times they have the mini hand antibacterial gel on sale @ 5 for ?

Sometimes you can find lanyards at Dollar stores. We found some at a Thrift store from an IBM conference! I guess they must have donated their surplus.
Plastic ponchos.
Crystal Light or Mio water stuff for the water.

glow necklaces for at night, matching sun visors/sunglasses/t-shirts. Not sure what the budget is, but most of my ideas can be found at the dollar store.

I have a bunch of glow stick necklaces so we'll use those. They are not interested in matching t-shirts, I tried suggesting that already.

What about items they might forget - toothbrush, toothpaste, water bottle, etc. I love the glow stick idea. Perhaps a pouch or wristlet to put cash and room key inside? Plastic ponchos. Sugarless gum.

Just a FYI, our local Big Lots has Purell bottles on sale 2 for $1. They also have good prices on Chapstick, and I think the have Disney type lip balm.

We have gotten cheap rain poncho's 2 for a dollar in the past. May be something usefull to add.

I would check with the teacher to make sure that you are allowed to provide food items to the fellow students. My kids are not allowed to bring food items to share with students because of all of the allergies (the school is the only one that can provide the food based on parent consent).
I think that dollar store "disney items" would be ideal

Suckers

Tattoos-princesses for girls, pirates for boys-I think even 7th graders would get a kick out of these

extra pens for autrograph books

cheapo sunglasses in neon colors that they all can wear and match(I've seen them in multi packs at our Dollar General)

Mardi Gras type beads
