Packing List

This is a great thread. As a hyper-planner I will put these tips to good use. My husband shakes his head at me but he'll be glad when we're there and has all he needs.

Does the tag fairy post things you say or just random things?
Didn't mean to start a debate or offend, sorry

You can make your own just lay out some paper towels one by one on counter. Pour dishwashing liquid in plate put palm of hand on plate then flat on towel, allow to dry.. Fold up, put in ziploc, wet when needed.

I also bring pop up baskets for the desk/table top. Each person has one to keep their things in.

Premade envelopes for Mousekeeping.

Plastic hangers to hang up wet clothes in the bathroom
I have a couple of the pop up hampers, but I've never seen the pop up baskets for a desk, etc. Where can I find those?

I have ot admit...I haven't read ALL the posts so I don't know if this is on there or not...carry a dry washcloth in a baggie to the park. It has several uses but I use it to cool off my neck when I get overheated. After I've cooled off, put it back in the baggie and when it is time to wipe dirty faces it is nice and warm!

To those traveling by car during the summer, rethink the idea of crayons. THEY MELT!!! All it takes is one of those stragglers to be forgotten and melt somewhere they shouldn't be to really put people in a bad mood. (I've had one melt on upholstery (Dad upset, and one on a favorite stuffed animal...no sleep for a week!!!!)

How about using the colored pencils and have mom keep a small pencil sharpener. Or, if the kids are older, how about WASHABLE markers. Maybe even some of the Color Wonders...a little expensive but keeps everthing nice and clean!

I have a very thourough packing checklist on a word document that can be personalized for whatever items your family is needing.

I didn't originally make it, but I can't remember where I got it - but it has been beyond personalized so I'm now calling it mine.

If anyone wants a copy, PM me your email and I will send it! And then, you can just personalize towards you and your family.

Benedryl can may kids sleepy or HYPER! Try it out at home first. Benedryl dosing is every 6-8 hours. One dose should be enough for a flight. I found my son was worse on the desent. I recommend earplanes. They have made a huge difference for him. No drugs needed. Although it is nice if they fall asleep for the flight. Walgreens even have a generic earplanes. I have not tried it as they didn't have kid sizes.

Great Thread.. We leave in 2 months (Driving from Va) so I've also started a disney box. DH said we'll have to take the back seats out of the mini van if we take everything I want! our compromise is I do a list, he goes thru it & marks off what he does not think we need, and if we have to buy anything there that he marked off and it costs more the $5.00 (most will), when we get home, I get a week "off" -no nagging, no cooking, no laundry etc ... he takes care of it all. After our last trip (Feb 07) and he owed me 7 weeks "off" he does not mark many things off my list

This is not essential TO ME, but I was surprised on our last trip how many kids wear costumes every day at the park.. I'd say at least 50-60% of the kids (and some adults) wear disney costumes to the parks all day.. I saw the same family several times over a week and every time I saw them they were in different costumes.

I love the suggestions as well as the explainations.. it's one thing to mention an item, its better to say why!
