Books/mags

How about a book or magazine for the drive or flight? My kids love to read and it keeps them occupied.

Hi Everyone ~ Been a while since I have checked in here !! But as I am 20 days away- I thought, wow I need to dig up my packing list from last year- so here I am. My husband so impressed with my packing - that now I will be held to this "do you have toe nail clippers in here ?" standard for the rest of forever !!
Feel free to keep adding stuff and I will go back and update if anyone sees a need - Just remember my DH said - "Only 6 bags this time not 9 please " lol !!

I'm leaving in 9 days and the list is great! However, there is one thing that has not been metioned. This is for all of you women with husbands, boyfriends, etc, don't forget the birth control.

A nice tip from another thread is to make sure they work BEFORE you go so you don't end up getting a second mortgage on your house by buying them in the park.

I bought mine at walmart before we left - got it over by the box fans and things like that. If you are driving they do have them here at the local walmart close to property (along with a lot of other disney/florida merchandise) there the fans are in huge bins right near the front of the door - hard to miss really! Tip! When you get them if you can fill them with ice - NOT WATER - the ice will melt while you are walking around and hit is nice to have COLD water to mist on your face on a hot day.

OK on my last day here at WDW here is the first 2 things I can think of for TIPS -
1 - taking a back pack? Get one of those that the kids use now on rollers - that bag will get heavy and it will be nice to roll one around for a while when the crouds are thinner. I wish I would have thought of that one!
2 - COOLERS!!!!!! If you are going to the water parks you can take your own coolers in with drinks and food. If you are saving money this will help. We took ours and it was nice..........there again - get one on rollers if you can don't have one - and freeze some stuff before you leave home.....like water or those pouces like the capri suns or something........not only will they help keep your stuff (food) cold but they will be nice to drink on a hot day and they are melting!

That is all I can think of right now! Will let you know moe later!

UNBRELLA!!!!!!!!! Or poncho if you prefer........That is one thing I did not pack - thinking it would be fine when I got here (arrived on 5-23 and leaving today) Well we broke down and bought an unbrella (not bad price $10 - i was expecting more) but still save a few$$$$ and bring your own. Doing the stroller thing? Bring something - maybe a clear poncho to cover your little ones up on the stroller in the rain!

LOL yeah you will - I thought the same thing and we went to walmart and target 2 times for things i forgot. That is all good tho!!! Things I did not think about were tweezers (never know with a little one) and nail clippers (never know when you will chip a nail and need one) Oh and stamps - I bought some here but it was just a pain in the butt to have to go find them - bring some with if you plan on mailing anything - post cards to home/family.

I just came across a GREAT new product while shopping for our trip! They are laundry cloths w/ detergent, fabric softener, & dryer sheet in one. They are made by Purex & are $6.00 for 24. Just put one sheet in w/ your laundry & then transfer it w/ the clothes to the dryer. Perfect for packing also!

Adding to the list:

1) AXE bodyspray "bullets" - great size for a long day at MK or after TL or BB.

2) Extra nightlights - If you are staying in an unfamiliar resort/hotel room.

3) Mini flashlights - JIC.

4) GPS - For those driving (or even flying!)

Enjoying the thread, keep it up!

I should add to the list!!! Pool noodles!! If you use Magical Express and don't rent a car, you will find that they are not selling pool noodles at all the resorts. Last I found one was at Animal Kingdom. The Epcot resorts -- Beach Club, Boardwalk,Yacht, etc. do not sell pool noodles. Soooo...if you have enough room in your luggage and don't intend to rent a car...pack that noodle!! I sooo missed mine this past May!
