I read this thread like crazy, and usually pack early for our trip. Work kept me too busy, and we were packing at the last minute. I had been gathering things for a while before hand, but really felt rushed at the last minute---

so start packing early kids!

The thing I forgot----I regular ink pen. We had markers, sharpies, crayons, but did I bring a regular pen--heck no!

needed one right away because DH thinks I should always have pens and gum and the ability to hold his wallet, but had to wait until we checked into our hotel to steal one.

One note about meds and the 3 oz size thing, we decided to buy the chewable tablet forms of all our faves..like children's motrin and pepto bismal, even imodium has them...this way, when my wee ones have an upset stomach or headache at the airport, or worse in mid flight ,I can reach in my carryon instead of having to wait to get my bags at the end of the flight...this will only work if your kids are old enough to take the chewables...
33Days and counting...my Disney box is filling up real quick!!! TEE HEE!!!

On a lot of the packing lists people have on them to get bug spray, but on another thread it says that there is no need to bring bug spray. So, We're going next week, do I need to bring bugspray or not?

Thanks!

We live in Florida, 2 hours away. So for our wash we bring a giant laundry bag.
So when we get home, when just throw it in the washing machine. I also bring clorox wipes, lysol and germx hand sanitizer.Also paper towels and dish soap to wash our mugs.

I am back from The World - Man what an amazing 12 days !!!
My DH was amazed and so happy with my packing skills !! This thread was so helpful and so much fun. Now if I could just get someone here to volunteer helping me put all this stuff back away

My Dh LOVED the over the door shoe organizer that held all our toiletries - (I had alot of them!) My favorite thing from the list was the extra hangers, the first night there I was able to hang all our clothes and spray them with the wrinkle releaser and never think about it again !

I will update the list again in the next couple days and I will add anything else that has been mentioned while I was away. I will say that I honestly had more than everything I needed !! One thing we may want to add to the list- is a couple empty suitcases/ carry on bags - to bring home all the loot you are going to pick up from the shops

It worked well - but to be completely honest - I didn't see any great difference to my spray bottle with water method !! Other than the cost! So I would just pack a small spray bottle - then spray and work out the wrinkles-remember to do this at least a day before you are going to wear the clothes so you don't end up having to use my hair dryer method !!

Great tips that have also been collected :

2.) Make sure you have left emergency contact info with neighbors/family members
3.) Don't forget to make arrangements for pets in advance.
4.) Take updated pictures of your children and have all the info (height,weight,age,hair color) handy just in case.
5.) Write down all credit card info and 800 numbers - keep in place other than purse/wallet in case these items get lost.
6.) Make photocopies of your tickets in case of lose.
7.) Take photos of kids in a couple "same places" every trip to show how much they have grown since the last trippie.



I will update the list as each person adds what they think we all need in our basket of must takes........

I have to bring my coffee maker/coffee...

I must say you have an impressive list going here though!!

If I pack all those things my husband would leave me behind. He limits my family of four to one suitcase per person and one other bag like a backpack. That's
all lucky me. We drive to wdw so i understand we have limited room, but I do hold back somewhat, so I don't hear him complain. We live 2 1/2 hours away from wdw and we go a few times a year. We leave real early, only make 1 stop(if were lucky)
