Boxed Disney collectables tend to be very well packaged, so as long as you pack them with care I wouldn’t worry too much about it.
Ahhh thank you for alleviating my fears! I figured they'd be well protected in the boxes because my Jim Shore figures came well packed in styrofoam. We only need to get from LAX to SYD

If I get really paranoid I'll go off to a craft store and buy bubble wrap ect for anything that I don't think is well protected. I'd love to check out that Michael's craft store that seem to be better then Spotlight when you read some posts on this board!

I have a list a mile long but at the very tip top are some Of the cutest sunglasses that I have seen in a while. They are just the brown glass and frame with a gold Mickey on the side. A friend of mine got them at Disney during Spring break and I must have a pair! She said she found them in the shop across from Space Mountain.

I love the beach towels

Love the kitchen things, from cups, towels, dishes, cookie cutters, you name it.

Love Christmas ornaments

Love sterling silver jewerly

Antenna balls

Clothes

Y'all are making me want to shop!

DD has brought a few home in checked luggage without any probs. Just pack really well, then in a ziplock bag just in case it does break, then in a hotel towel (ah-hum) for extra protection, just in case. It's her bedside table that they don't survive on.

Haha good to know I might just have to buy a Disney towel then to wrap it up in Fears are almost gone now

I'm planning on one big one along the lines of this one: http://www.disneystore.com/snowglobe...92412/1000345/

And I'm in love with this one: http://www.disneystore.com/snowglobe...05686/1000345/ Plus any other Precious Moments Disney Snowglobes I find

I've budgeted to buy a third suitcase over there and to pay the extra to have it on the flight home I figure $100 US (with Virgin Australia) for a third bag plus $40ish US for a suitcase (from Walmat or Target) is a bargin to have 23kg extra coming home! As it is I'm planning on packing my smaller suitcase and packing it inside my larger one, so I'l have two empty suitcases to fill with my souvienirs

Ds wants a club penguin lanyard. Dunno if there is such a thing
I want a charm for my pandora
Pins from each attraction
An iPad case
A bottle of magicale
More Disney cutlery, we bought one set but I want another
A soft Disney throw, we have three so one kid always misses out during snugly movie time
A minnie apron.

It's also a tradition to buy the Mickey ginger bread kit. It tastes and smells like Disneyland
