I always pack a roll of paper towels and bring either paper towels or a small bath towel/hand towel to the park. Handy for wiping off anything wet in case it rains or sometimes dew in the morning or sweat later in the afternoon!

Now I know what the packaging looks like and hopefully I will find it.
Maybe next time you buy something at Amazon, you could buy some body glide as well. It should help you qualify for free shipping if your order exceeds $25.

Try amazon.com/mom. It's a free 3-month trial of Amazon Prime (free 2 day shipping). I am not sure how long they will offer it, but it's a great deal... especially with Christmas coming up.

Extra clothes hangers

DH and I always bring extra hangers for the closet. Between the 2 of us and all of the "nicer" clothes that we pack for the signature restaurants, the hangers in the room tend to get used up very quickly. And if we end up not using all of them, we have some left over to hang up wet pool towels, bathing suits, belts, etc. They pack pretty flat too.

Wow-didn't mean for that to be grumpy-it just came out!
well, i am all for the leash if you have children who will run or walk away a lot. It is so easy for small children to get lost in the crowd, even in lines.

Plus, you can get some GREAT pictures!! This one was made years ago at Hollywood studios. It's still one of my favorites!! He really was trying to get away!! She played the roll perfect too!

I love this thread!

Hotel TV remotes are disgusting. Think of all the hands that have touched them! I make sure to pack a ziploc bag to put the TV remote in as sort of a protector from all those germs.

I also pack a small spray bottle with a drop of lavender oil in it. When I get to the resort I fill the bottle up with water and now I have lavender scented water in a spray bottle to use for getting wrinkles out of clothes, freshening up clothing for multi-day use, freshening up the hotel room, and fixing up hair.

Bath fizzies are important too! I always spend a few bucks on some nice bath fizzies with essential oils so I can sit on the edge of the tub and soak my feet after a long day of walking.

For those who can't find Body Glide locally, WalMart and Target have something called Monistat Chafing-Relief Powder/ Gel (or somesuch). It's only about 5 bucks and it is a truly miraculous product. Look for it with the other Monistat (yeast infection) stuff but it isn't used for that, honest!

My DD and my MIL both tried it and made me buy them their own!

I do the suitcase in a suitcase thing but I also pack a vacuum seal bag (the ones where you suck all the air out of to make it tiny, and a hair dryer with a reverse setting. Its small and works great when your souvenirs take up all the space for clothes. The hair dryer is great, don't remember where we found it, and takes the place of the vacuum.

I also bring my all purpose kit with needles/thread. a couple extra buttons, a small piece of velcro (for when I don't have enough time to sew), tide-2-go, chap stick (sunburn lips are the worst), and ear plugs (you never know when there will be a fireworks show ) among other 'normal' things.

Great idea with the dripping lids too!

Such great ideas!! I've added quite a few to my list! And now I think my husband thinks I'm even more nuts for all the things I have on it!

One question though. Where do you get these??

She loved the freedom, I loved the piece of mind.

Have a great trip!!!
I'll admit I've always been kind of anti-leash but we have a challenging two year old who likes to be independent and do what his big brothers do. So now I'm thinking about the bracelet and/or leash to bring with "just in case" for sanity's sake. Otherwise it could be a long week!!

A few years ago I got my daughters at Walmart. It was red with Elmo on the packaging. But never needed it. Went to get one for my runaway almost 2 year old a few weeks ago and couldn't find one. Got him the monkey leash. Now I see they have mickey/minnie leashes at kohls.com

Making quite a long list from all these great tips. Thank you everyone. Something I like to bring is a sippy cup strap I found at Kohls to attach the cup to the stroller. Love it for when my son wants to playing the dropping game!
