I didn't go back and check whether this has been added yet, but how about Downy Wrinkle Releaser?

Great list! Also dont forget balloons for the air plane ride. This helps my kids "pop" their ears.

Someone should try to get a "master list" ready--I'll see if I have one from b4 but there are a few things on here that I think I would add to the one I have. Hope to find it!!---But to add to the list (or remove) is DON"T BRING SO MUCH--I found last time we brought too many glow sticks-too many cameras (3 for only one person taking the still shots was too much!) too many snacks-when you come home with some that you took down that's bad! To add: a power strip, clorox clean up wipes(in a ziploc bag)

My husband scans copies of all of our ID's, tickets, reservations on a portable USB drive. Saves a lot of room! I keep any must have hard copies in our travel organizer from LL Bean. We have used both on several WDW and cruise trips and find them to be invaluable!

My other packing tip: I ask my pediatrician if they have any sample size packages of OTC meds for the kids. I have gotten several from her and we add it to our travel meds carrier (see-through travel cosmetic case from Walmart). Saves a ton of space instead of carrying full size packages of any meds, that we may or may not use.

even though I'm a little more than a month out I've started "gathering" some things in the basement for WDW (DH would kill me if I called it packing ). Today I added a cable lock to the pile...to lock up the stroller in the parks. After reading a thread where people have had their stroller stollen, I want to be prepared! However, I'm sad that I even have to consider it.

Your computer application passwords AND IDs- especially if you need to work while away - call your IT dept. to get your VPN access and/or address for web based email and try them from home. Many people don't think about their IDs -they're usually pre-populated at work.

Also, a lock for your laptop.

leaving in 2 days - thanks for the reminder!

great tips! now I just realized my lazy day off from work will be replaced with a trip to Target for some large ziploc bags and shout stain remover!

It's just another grown-up and I and we'll be eating everything in the parks, but I also like to bring some granola bars or something to eat before I leave the resort and get some real food. I tend to wake up hungry and am CRANKY before fed!

Over the door organizers are great. Sometimes you can find them at the Dollar Tree store. Along with those fold up laundry baskets.

Another item if its not already on it--Beer, wine or other beverage of choice for the hotel room

OHHH I have something. The last two years I have brought my adidas slides, the ones with the bumps that massage your feet. These are great to put on as slippers or to wander the resort in. They feel so good after a long day, or when you wake up and your feet are screaming!!!
