I love this thread! I have been gathering things for a while, but I still have a bit to go.
Just to share, in case someone finds it useful...

You can ship a box with your extra stuff to your resort hotel, or to a different hotel. We have to fly standby, so we're staying at the Hyatt for a night or two before the vacation begins. I'm shipping our box to the Hyatt so that it will get there the day we arrive.

Also, there is another option, but it is a little more expensive. You can ship from post office to post office, and they will hold it for you there. So, if no other option, ship from your PO to the Orlando PO, and pick it up when you want.

141.) Temp. Tattoos with your phone number to put on young kids in case they get lost.


Does anyone know where these might be found? Ordering online? I've never seen this, but would love to have it for our upcoming trip.

How have some of you "labeled" your children with phone number, etc? I considered just writing it on the inside of their arms with a permanent marker but that seems....I don't know. I'd just rather another option, I guess. Any other ideas?

I have dreams like you, no really! Just much less touchy-feely. They mainly happen somewhere warm and sunny....

Smile Thanks!

I have to say, DH considers me an obsessive-compulsive overpacker, but some of you folks put me to shame! Awesome! What a great list ~ had to peruse it all for our upcoming trip in a few weeks. I know I have a long list, but it always seems like I think of something else grand that I "should" have included. Or something neat-o that I could have, at least.

Appreciate all the work that has gone in to this - look! It's still helpful 2+ years later...

This thread is why I love the DIS...hahaha...It is the only reason in the world I have ever purchased moleskin. So many little things you never think to bring that can be a total vacation saver.

We write our phone numbers on our kids bellies. They love it, think it is super cool and even our DS when not quite 3 was taught that if he was lost to find a woman, preferable one with a name tag and show them his belly. He didnt enunciate well and I dont know if anyone could have understood him if he was scared. I love the tats though.

I just showed my husband this thread and made him read all of it...i yelled in his ear...SEE...IM NOT THE ONLY ONE!!!!

a few things i might add...

premoistened face wipes for those sweaty days
super sized Mom Clip - caribiner type thingy
loud matching tshirts or hats so you can always see your kids in a crowd
green bags to keep fruit in the room
a battery operated luggage scale (an over packers MUST HAVE!)
a hat to hide the 'holiday hair' under...
xanex for the hubby (just kidding)

and...

space bags that you roll the air out of...then you can pack more

My kids insist on goggles when they swim. Almost forgot them, but put them in the bag last night. Thought adding it to the list might help someone else!
