Thanks in advance.

Maybe try "LED lights bracelets" or "LED jewelry". Those work with tiny cell batteries which usually come with the product. Hope that helps

What an AWESOME idea!!! Thank you!

My favorite travel items can all be found at the Dollar Tree.

1.) Collapsible hamper (folds flat on bottom of suitcase)
2.) Folding fabric "drawer" (for keys, camera, change, etc. in the hotel room)
3.) Two pack of rain ponchos
4.) Suction cup hooks for wet bathing suits or clothes in shower
5.) Bubble wrap for souvenirs (unroll flat for packing on the way)

See, I saw "bubble wrap" and thought why not just wrap your suveniers up in your clothes.

Bubble wrap works much better - I take it and use it, too.

An empty cinch bag folded up in the stroller. We always leave the parks with a lot more than which we came. When it comes time to get on the bus, we just throw everything in the empty bag, fold up the stroller and hop on the bus. We can sort it out when we get to the room and have the empty bag again the next day.

This is a perfect thing to do! I did this my last trip 3 weeks ago, and it saved me some headaches! I was able to take pictures and videos, plus use the park apps without worry of a dying battery. For my next trip (hopefully in May), I will most likely will purchase another battery and charger just for the added back up!

My daughter hates the child leases, but my 2 yr old DGD doesn't like to be pent up in the stroller all day. I'm in an ECV @ the parks, that I keep on slow so I don't run over anyone, so I think I'm going to get one for our upcoming trip. When the little one gets antsy, we can take her out and stretch her legs, without losing her. =)

Oh I love this thread! Thanks for all the great ideas and if I would happen to use all of them that I like I'd have to rent a Uhaul ! I, and I know several others, have taken their own coffee pots and toasters and never had an issue. I did ask Disney a few years back about crock pots and they said no in the standard rooms. The only thing I have a hard time with, on this thread and on other threads, is how rude people can be to others. People on this thread are just trying to give helpful information to others and there is no need to be rude when replying to their comment maybe some individuals should be a little nicer. I just wish some people would think before they type and post !

I cannot believe how much great stuff I was able to add to what I already thought was a very thorough packing list! Subscribing!
