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

Shout wipes?

This is GENIUS, as the boyfriend has never met a shirt that he can't spill on. He spills everything, I mean everything. The problem is, I can't find the shout wipes! Tide to go pens are everywhere, but I can't find the wipes in Target, Walmart or my local grocery store... I can always order them online, but where have you all found them?

If you are traveling in the summer and are driving freeze a whole case of water and put it in a cooler. They are a life saver in the parks! Put a dry washcloth around it (to soak up the condensation) & stick it the side pocket of your backpack. It will stay cold all day! We used the whole case in less than a week in July!

We have always traveled to WDW in the summer. This year we are going the day after Thanksgiving! We are so excited to experience Christmas the Disney way! I would greatly appreciate any tips or advice for traveling this time of year. We are used to sweating and fighting crowds in 115 degree whether in July!

I just bought a pack of these at Walmart last week for our trip (we leave tomorrow!). I found them in the same area as the laundry stain removers. Although I have seen 4 packs in the travel size sections of both Walmart and Target within the past week also.

Good luck finding some. I think they work great, too!

I stick them on our cameras and backpacks and water bottles.

Essentially, everything.
Great idea I do something similar when i first buy a phone or camera I write down my name, mailing address, and phone number (phone number just for the camera of course) and i take a picture of it and set it as the first picture to come up if someone were going through it... that way they can return it. and we have actually had a camera returned to us!

Beg Bugs be gone!

I travel internationally to places where you can be sure there are bedbugs in the hotels. There is a camping product called Premethian that you can treat clothes, tents, etc with that kills them and keeps them away.

I pack a small spray bottle (2 oz or so) and as soon as you get to the hotel room pull back the bed sheets and give a nice spray particularly around the the edge of the bed. Take off the pillow cases and give the pillows a spray.

Let it dry (10 mins at most) and put it back together. 100% confirmed . . no bed bugs.

Also I treat my suitcase exterior and interior. No need to bring any of those critters home.

There are a couple videos on you tube that shows how effective this stuff is on the bugs and it is 100% safe for people.

A long sleeve art smock for kids. Like this http://www.amazon.com/Faber-Castell-...56/ref=lh_ni_t

Carry it in your bag and whip them out for meals. My (almost) 4 year old uses his smock multiple times a day at home, it keeps clothes from getting stained and is easy to put on and take off.

2 things

1. foldable step stool for my daughter to wash her hands-It was nice not having to lft her up in the room after lifting her in the parks all day.

2. Take a picture of your photo pass card. We lost ours on our 1st day and did not have the number to register it. We did have the pictures taken on our camera also but would have liked to have seen the ones that they took.
I filled out the form for lost photopass cards and if it was found and turned in, I might have a chance of them being found.
