I have not tried it as they didn't have kid sizes.
regarding the benedryl, i find that dramamine the night before actually helps much more. makes them either car or ride ready, and the sleepiness side effect helps them relax and sleep some. dramamine truly is much more effective if taken the night before.............

Years ago, I came across this list and I have used an altered/personalized version of it ever since. It comes from MouseSavers.com and is super helpful when I'm trying to remember all of those little things, the kind of stuff that I don't want to waste vacay time shopping for once I get to Orlando.

I found the ultimate packing list on mousesavers last year & used it to prepare for my vacation. It was great. Plus, I was able to modify it to suit my family's needs.

I can't believe it, but we actually take something that isn't on the list!

I bought light weight, thin, fleece baby blankets from the dollar store. They weigh next to nothing. We keep them on our park bag for our boys to use when they get cold in restaurants.

No offense taken. No one is actually advocating packing EVERY SINGLE ITEM listed, 'cause what a PITA, not to mention a PITWallet! It's merely a helper for people who are not very organized. If you'll notice, it's divided into separate sections depending on mode of travel (i.e. you're not likely to take a cooler on Southwest Airlines, but it's appropriate under driving trips). In fact, most things on the list are repeats -- listed once under general packing and again under, say, theme park touring.

I'm sure we all do something in relation to our packing habits that others would find a bit "out there." (For me, I'd rather not waste my vacation time running back & forth to Walgreens or wherever; DBF on the other hand, does not care about that and would wait until the morning we leave if I let him!) FTR, I take quite a bit of things I find necessary for my Disney vacations and have neither paid an extra bag fee, packed an overweight bag, nor been bogged down with more than two pieces of luggage. It's all in how you pack, and after 16 times, I've got it down.

Awesome list! I did use the mousesavers one also and modify but this is a great addition. It a great checklist. Maybe I should add the kids onto it because if I try to pack, carry all this and put it in the car I might head to the airport with them still in bed!
