Is this the bottle carabiner you were talking about? Is this a good price for them?

Yes, those are the water bottle carabiners that are up on ebay right now. They fit a standard water bottle and you can clip it onto whatever you want.

The price on Jewel Thief is good, but the cheapest shipping is like $5, even if you only buy one carabiner. So the Ebay price is better

Great thread! I got some great ideas for the little things I never think about.
Like the lysol for the bathroom! That will be handy! hehe Oh, and the mini M&M containers for the pressed penny change! Fabulous idea! I found a lime green one at Kmart! Woohoo!

I've started my Disney shopping this weekend! My DD-11 wants to start packing today! We have 25 more days!

I agree! Very excited to find this thread!

We also started our Disney shopping on the weekend! We leave in 20 days

Bought a bunch of cool snacks for the plane (if only we can stop ourselves from eating them before we leave!!!)

What kind of snacks did you get? I have to hide our snacks! Especially from my DH!

I just bought a box of 24 small bags of Combos and 16 small bags of chips. I prefer to buy before I go. This doesn't mean I don't have to shop once we get there, but it does provide more variety. I also got 3 pkgs. of High School Musical powder for the individual waters. Dasani is on sale this week at CVS. 24 for 3.99, I'll have to stock up on that. We have bags and bags of M&M's from a CVS deal 2 months ago. I just got 1.00 coupons for 12 packs of Coke from vocalpoint yesterday. Pop Tarts are always needed. Big Lots is always a fun place to get snacks.
I'll stock up on cereal from Aldi's, I think for our house.

Great thread and so glad I found it! I'd like to make my contribution to the list:

microfiber cloths

I'm packing a couple small ones (I got a bag of them in the car wash aisle at Wal-Mart for $5) in ziplock bags in my park bag. I'm going in September and since it usually rains a bit then, these will come in handy in drying off a seat or my feet.

Hmmm microfiber cloths? good idea! Do you think they would work better then just a towel? I was just thinking bringing a couple towels with us and bringing 1 to the park with us, and if we use it, we can lay it out to dry and the next day we can take the other one.

I think the microfiber would work better than the towel. You can wring out most of the water, put it in a ziplock and it would still be good to use again (before you get a chance to dry it out) if you needed to. I think they're lighter and not as bulky as a towel too.

Does anyone know for sure which is better?
