I don't always bring the family -- most often just DH. Next week though, we'll bring a bunch of the family!

This list is awesome!

I forgot sugar and the rain ponchos from the dollar store so we don't pay the "disney" price for one with a mouse on it. And rain gonna happen.

I also bring the crock pot... cause 2 nights we do put it in the pot and forget it!

You could always get some of the 3M removable hooks, but they would not be reusable.

The suction cup hooks were probably the most useful things we had on the most recent trip. There are few places to hang towels and swimsuits to dry.

We also have night-lights in our Owner's Locker. It is nice to have softer light through the villa when walking around at night.

As a PP stated, it is good to have batteries, too, especially if you have little ones and buy stuff for the kids. We bought a remote control monorail on our most recent trip, and we could not find a 9 volt battery or AAA batteries anywhere. You would think that Disney would sell batteries that are needed for their toys.

I pack a flat griddle, great for cooking pancakes and french toast.

I also like to bring a couple of power strips, can never have enough electrical outlets.

I also love the Purex 3 in 1 so now I don't have to bring laundry detergent and dryer sheets separately. I also have learned to bring a spot remover (shout).

Ziplock bags have also become handy.

We buy sparkling wine in the gift shop and from home we bring:

Allergy and cold medication
Plastic silverware and cups
Disinfectant wipes
large foam egg crate (it takes up a lot of room in my suitcase, but I am 29 and cannot sleep well on any WDW sofa bed. So until we save enough points for a 2 bedroom, I won't leave home without it)

Have you ever thought about using one of those travel vacuum bags, where you roll out the air to make the item smaller? It still weighs the same but takes up less room in the luggage.

The most often used item in our OL is our Brita water pitcher with extra filters, and plastic glasses that are larger than anything in the villas. We love our OL.

We have a magnetic hook from Michaels Craft Store that we use to hang a wreath on our SSR door. It doesn't leave a mark. I am sure you could use it on the inside of the door for a coat. Otherwise, SSR has a nice coat rack in the second bedroom of a 2br. We use that for our coats.

We have most of the above in our locker plus lots of extra hangers. There are never enough in the closets!

Do they provide a small trial size box of laundry detergent?

We'll be renting points for 2 nts precruise and don't want to pack dirty clothes onto the ship. It would be nice to wash a load or 2. We own a TS off site and have traded often through RCI but never stayed at a DVC resort. Most TS resorts have a box or 2 near the W/D. Does DVC do this also? I'm packing now so any tips would be great.

Thanks!

There usually seems to be a single-use Tide in the 1BR+ units (not studios).

On your Trash and Towel day and if you stay long enough for a full cleaning, they will give you another single use box. But since we always do two loads when we do laundry we always bring extra detergent and bounce dryer sheets. Or if we are flying the Purex 3 in 1 sheets which are much easier to pack in a suitcase.
