I am super excited about the popsicle "catch" idea with the drink lids. My youngest is Autistic with Sensory Integration Disorder and he eats popsicles and ice cream unusually slow so it drips a lot and then when that happens he has a melt down because his hands are then dirty and sticky so this will be a lifesaver and help my youngest enjoy some Mickey ice cream!!!! Thanks so much for the tip!

So many posters bring toothbrush cups or suction cup thingies for their toothbrushes.

I always put my toothbrush away as housekeeping will spray cleanser on the mirror and it drifts down onto anything on the counter....

Everyone gets a cup assigned to them, to place their toothbrush in. The toothbrushes are organized and do not touch the counter.

We also bring a power bar with at least 8 outlets in it. We use the power bar to plug in our 4 cell phones, camera batteries, ipods, and anything else which needs charging. It helps when there are only 2 or 3 plus available to charge things at night.

We bring ziplock bags in quart and gallon sizes. We use them to store any food we bring back to the room (no bugs please) and our cell phones & camera's when it rains.

What do you bring and use at WDW which are not normal items like a brush, clothes, extra sneakers ?

CLOROX OR LYSOL WIPES- -we wipe off remote and phone and dresser and nitestand where we will touch and then we do the bathroom as well...just as precautions and door handles...also table and chair the wood areas as we lay a towel over the seats. Then we carry diaper wipes for in the parks to wash hands more often as always touching hand railings etc. since we been doing this have had lots less colds and flu. takes a few mintues on the first day for most and then done. we also take a bottle of plain yellow MUSTARD (suggest unopened in a plastic baggy as may explode on plane) it is --wonderful--if one gets legs cramps or charley horses from walking to much. take one heaping spoon full and wash it down with glass of water and cramp is gone..some may laugh as my DBL did until he had to try it one night...

Waterproof card box for pool



Small waterproof box for room key, credit card, cash, car key. Loops on your swimsuit strap, so you can relax and swim without worrying about watching your stuff at the hotel pool.

I got mine years ago at a dive shop, but I found the one pictured above at amazon for $7.25. Mine just has the cord at the top of the box, not the ring or caribeaner...not sure if they'd make it too bulky...

This is sad and we make fun of ourselves all the time (as does the rest of the family) but my mom and I grab those round Mickey stickers whenever we can. We are spillers. We WILL spill on our shirts and sometimes Shout wipes and Tide pens don't do the trick. So we whip out a Mickey sticker and cover the evidence. Sometimes we look silly, but an oddly placed Mickey sticker looks a lot better than a big stain!

And when I'm at home and I spill (which is all the time) DH just looks at me and shouts "Mickey sticker"!

So, that was you, with the stickers placed in odd places! I just thought some kid had stuck them on you, and you didn't want to offend him so you kept the stickers on.

It's taken me almost two days but I finally read all 55 pages. Holy moley. I have lists going now, and am so appreciative of everything suggested!! We are driving, but I don't want to over or under pack...for you 'veterans', it's a big help! Many many thanks!!

I've been rubbing it on my feet where I would normally get a blister, and it has helped, so far. I plan to use it where my shirt sleeve sometimes rubs against the side of my body too. We head to WDW on Monday so that will be the real test. I'll rub it everywhere something rubs together.

Use this stuff anywhere your clothes might rub, or where skin is constantly rubbing. Like, if you normally wear t-shirts but decide to wear a tank top? That's a call for it. Where your thighs touch when walking is another good spot for it. If you have large breasts, under them is good, and it helps keep heat rash away too. And, without getting graphic, anywhere your underwear touches you on the front half of your body. :-)

Thumbs up

I posted this on another thread, but I'll post here too...

I love a product called Camp Suds. I originally began using it for backpacking camp trips. It is a biodegradable all purpose soap. It comes in a small 2oz. container and you only need a couple small drops to wash dishes, hands, etc...

It really came in handy to keep in the diaper bag when my kids were in the bottle/ sippy cup stage. I could rinse out and wash their cups in a restroom and refill with clean water (and a juice powder pack/kool-aid packet as they got older). Because the soap is designed for camping in the backcountry, it really does only take a drop or two, rinses really easy, and it leaves no after taste. Even if a little is left behind, the type of soap it is is not harmful to the GI tract if you know what I mean...

Now it is great for rinsing out water bottles in the park (can't stand plain water so I use the single juice packets), wash the kids cups, and to wash up the refillable mugs. Also doubles as liquid hand soap. Also works to wash up a small spill on a shirt. One little bottle, so many uses = more room for souvenirs!!

also check your local hunting/camping/outdoors store...
