I am going in December. Someone recommended gloves/mittens as it sometimes will get cold at night.

I also recommend taking a permanent marker/sharpie. I see that was mentioned already in reference to character signing....but I use it to mark our names on water bottles, toys, etc.

Thought of one more I didn't see posted. For those of you who wear glasses still, like I do; an eye glass repair kit. I saw the glass cleaner and a hard case posted, but didn't see a repair kit. A repair kit fits great into the eye-glass case for easy transport.

I travel frequently and I always pack an anit-itch cream, elastoplasts gel blister bandages (a must), tide spot remover, scissors, small sewing kit, safety pins, bounce sheets (keeps everything fresh - good to put in closet, in shoes, gets rid of static - so many uses), and sm LED flashlist (never now when the lights will go out).

We fly to Disney World and I need to pack a lot LESS on our next trip. After spending a year on this thread getting ready for the trip I was ready for anything. But I had to take extra luggage to pack it all in and many items were never even opened during the trip.

If you are going in the summer the small fans that hang around your neck or "misters" are well worth the packing space. Take along extra batteries. Don't remove the batteries from their package. Airlines have rules about how batteries are packed.

My apologies if I missed it, but postcard stamps and pre-printed labels to put on postcards so you don't have to worry about addresses.

(And this list is awesome, I just made it my official packing list once I pared it down to just things my family will need. Thank you!)

We just got back from our 5th trip, and it was the first trip I used the overdoor shoe organizer. I didn't use it fortoiletries, but used a pocket for that days souvineers like park maps, receipts...I used pockets for cell chargers and all the other stuff that clutters up our suite. I couldn't believe how clean our rooms were!

I also fell in love with the Purex laundry sheets..easy and no accidental spills!!

I didn't see the stamps on the list or labels when I did a quick scan -- so I added it for everyone - Thanks !

Now that we have everything -- oh yeah don't forget - you can get a Kitchen Sink at Beaches n Cream - so you can leave the sink at home

Sorry if this has been mentioned already.

With two young kids, I pack a folding step stool for them to use in the bathroom. I got it from BB and B with a coupon. I put it in a plastic bag and then in the checked bag.

Also, I pack the clothes pins in a small mesh bag for delicates. I then used the bag for bras on laundry day.

reusable

The best part about most of these items is- they are useful! Most can be used at home and on other travel, so your not really out any money.

Smile Cleaning the refillable mug

I scanned this board pretty quick this morning so if I am repeating this I apologize.
I noticed that someone mentioned dish detergent to clean the refillable mugs. My tip is to wet some sponges and cut each into 4 pieces, squirt liquid detergent onto each piece and let the pieces dry. Once dry put them in a ziplock to take with you. When a mug is dirty just wet a piece of sponge and instant suds to clean 3 or 4 mugs. I make sure i have about 12 pieces for a 7 day trip and that is plenty for us.

I can't take credit for this wonderful idea I got it from someone else here about 2 or 3 years ago. These boards are great!!!

I am soooo going to do this
