I'm still working through the thread, but I'm going to add window tinting clings for kids in the back seat. We are renting a car and my son gets so upset about the sun in his face (um, rightly so! Haha). So I'm bringing a package of them to tint the back window. I got the at Target for less than $6 for a 2pack!

Ha! I just ran out to Target and bought the moleskin and Monistat anti-chaf powder gel... Felt odd lurking in the condom, pregnancy test, uti section, but have read so many RAVES about the Monistat that I just want to be sure we have it on hand for this hot, humid trip if we need it! ;-)

I also pack a ziplock bag with a few Shout Color Catcher sheets (so that you can throw all colors of clothes in one load, worry-free), Purex laundry detergent /fabric softener sheets. I like having some sort of air freshened for the room, too - Yankee Candle Company even sells those cardboard, hanging air fresheners in the car section at Target. We got some cheap window gel clings of birthday cakes to put in our POFQ room window - celebratory for our sons' birthdays, and helps identify our room! :-)

20 days (15 work days) before our AWESOME TRIP!!! Wooooo HOOOO!!!

First I have to say thank you for this thread!! I got some great ideas for things to bring on our trip! Of course my husband just rolled his eyes when I told him about this thread! I just have a question, have any of you actually used the shout color catchers? Do they work well? They would be great to take with us but I'm so afraid our clothes are going to get ruined and then we have to wear funky looking clothes the rest of the week!! Thanks so much!!

I LOVE Shout Color Catchers, and started using them years ago after rave reviews from friends. I even was bold enough to try washing brand new RED clothes with lighter clothes - NO COLOR TRANSFER!! I always use them... Good luck!

I bring a small stroller to ANY park that has "wet" rides. I bring flip-flops, towels, sun screen, water ect.. This way we can change into flip-flops before splash mountain and don't have to walk around in soggy sneakers. (we hate crocs) and no need for a locker.

put the baby wipes in your carry on in case you have you use a scary public toilet on the go you can get a little fresh!
Also, put your favorite cereals in small zip locks. This way you just have to buy some milk on/off site to have yourself a bowl of cereal save time and money!

I'm thinking of bringing a portable (camping) stool. I have plantar fasciitis and can't stand in place for very long. Is it a good idea?

My hubby brought his. He actually brought two. They are small tripod types. I thought he was CRAZY! But figured it's his backpack, so oh well!

Boy did they come in handy!! It was great for the kids at parade times so they wouldn't have to sit on hot cement or in any long lines. They didn't weigh much at all and fit in his bag so it wasn't a big deal.

I'm sure other people thought he was ridiculous but it worked for us

So I always put all loose items: electronics, jewelry, change...etc...into zip lock baggies. I decided to put a strip of leopard print duct tape across each side of the bag so I know for sure my bags don't go astray!
