I'm not a brand name kind of girl, but I DO want it to stand up to abuse. My lovely carryon mickey bag that I got in WDW two years ago did not fare very well the ONE time I handed it over to DCL to put on the ship for us. All they had to do was take it from the sidewalk to the stateroom and back off the ship to the dock but it got HUGE scratches and the wheels have never been the same...

I have an old peppermint tin with Donald's picture on it. DH got it on our first trip and keep all my pressed pennies in it. I have them from almost everywhere I've been. Can't display them but it makes it fun when we pull them all out to look at them. Its the size of an altoids container.

The changes just make me giggle

My set came from TJ Maxx about 6 years ago and I promise you that they still look brand new. I love my suitcases!! And you buy them by the piece.

He doesn't want to pay $70 for a one trick pony but I also don't want to get something that smells of smoke or urine or anything...


We got our huge one at Kohls a few years back when they were having a sale. We have to be careful not to go over 50#s with it. It's easy to do that, just be aware. And I think if you can find one for $70 you should grab it. I don't think you'll get one any cheaper than that.

I agree with this on a large piece that you want to hold up.

Oof I know! And its $50 extra if we go over.... we'll definitely be weighing it before we go - and it will carry our extra clothes/shoes, empty waterbottles and maybe some cereal or bagels since I am undecided on green grocer. Since we have to pack formal wear we need more space, whose idea was it to book nice restaurants again...? Surely not ME...!

Never let it be said that the people on this thread don't come through with answers to any question!

I also read somewhere else on the DIS that it's best to use pennies from 1949 or older because of what they're made of. Lots of luck finding those!

Subscribing and Introducing myself.

DH and I will be making our first WDW trip starting November 1 - 6, 2012. We have both been to Disneyland, but never to the World. Our youngest daughter gets married 9/8 so we are celebrating an empty nest! We will be staying at POFQ.

bellelulu Nov 1-6 @ POFQ

I have enjoyed the boards and am learning tons, any advice for a newbie is welcome.
