Stroller bag

I bought a stroller bag from Babies R Us. It straps to the stroller handle. Has several Velcro compartments as well as a big, long mesh pocket. And even a much needed extra cup holder.
REALLY great addition to the WDW strollers!

I was reading through this thread and 100% agree with this. I thought I was the only one that did it. I get hiccups bad enough that I get a headache if I don't get them stopped and the ONLY thing that stops them is PB.

So we will have the stroller, with a cup holder and a mommy hook but I'm trying to figure out how we could make something that would attach to a carabiner. I've googled a few things and can't seem to find a clip or attachment!

Suggestions?!?!

I just saw an attachment for water bottles (will work with Bobbles too) at The Container Store. One end attached to the Bobble, the other was a carabiner. HTH!!

Alternatively, I'd take two large flat pieces of cardboard that I could sandwich the stuff in in my luggage. I had to beg some off of one of the DTD stores last time when my DD went with a friend to SeaWorld and had a matter caricature done.
From what I hear there is a Lake Buena Vista Post Office on (or near) the property. The USPS usually provides free mailing tubes if you ship the item Priority Mail. I have no idea how much it costs to ship but you know it will arrive in good condition!

Re. bags, I'm planning to take a small backpack into the parks, am I allowed to take this on ALL rides or not? If not, are there lockers near to rides?

Many of you have mentioned bedbugs I've never really thought about these before on my travels but I'm paranoid now! Apart from the ill advised oils some people use, what puts your mind at rest dealing with these?

Huge thanks for this thread everyone
Keep luggage on a rack or in the bathtub so no creepy crawlies travel home with you. Check the mattress/sheet for any stains that look like blood, especially at the mattress corners. Watch out for bites on you in threes (like three right in a row). If you think there is a problem, ask to change rooms.

We bought one as well for own stroller, and worth it!

Also the rain cover for our stroller. It fit in the mesh portion.

Moleskin for the handling of hubbie's predicted blisters.

Pool noodles because yes I am too cheap to pay double the price at the resorts that sell them.
I like to use Bodyglide for my blisters... I haven't had success with Moleskin... Just a suggestion!

a small plastic ziplock for your cellphone, cameras etc... water rides!!! and extra contacts if you do wear them. I made the mistake of packing 1 extra pair and happen to lose the ones i packed then dropped a contact right before we were heading into hollywood studios!!! I was half blind lol

So many great ideas!

One thing we always seem to have in the suitcase is a deck of cards...never know when you might get a spare second at night or want to play by the pool! Also, I recommend taking more than one pair of sunglasses...I know I tend to break mine like it's my job, haha.

Great thread!

As for the popsicles, mini frisbees come in a 3 pack at dollar tree, in disney themes. Use an exacto knife to cut an X in the center.

That's a great idea! I generally also like to try and save with sites like group on.

I'm a type 2 diabetic and I've found I love using the little containers that hold test strips. They shut water tight and are great for holding little things like pills, or anything else that can get lost easily. I also used them to hold quarters for pressed pennies, as the circumfrence is about the same size.
