You mention you're staying in a THV. Your tree house will have it's own BBQ grill. Do you plan to use it? Other than hotdogs & brats, I don't see a lot of BBQ-type foods. (No steak night?) Also, charcoal, lighter fluid, and matches if you do plan to grill.

I see the mini marshmallows, presumably for the hot chocolate. If I've talked you into lighting off a BBQ grill though, you may want some big ones too.

I see cookie dough! Yes! Hot cookies from the oven sounds like a great Disney treat. There is a sheet pan in the DVC kitchens, but not a cooling rack. If you have room in your kitchen suitcase, you may want to pack a small one. Also, pans aren't non-stick. You've got butter and oil on your list, but you may want to consider some Pam too.

Sugar?

Yes! Charcoal. We are grilling the tri tip prior to MNSSHP! Good eye. Thank you! Which means we'll need matches. Can I pack matches in my check in luggage? I know I can't carry them on.

Big marshmallows mean graham crackers and chocolate bars too. I like your thinking. Excellent.

Do the AKV grills need charcoal too? Wondering how big of a bag to get?

Perfect, thank you. I've added Ziplocs and baggies. I hate to throw away leftovers.

Really? That's good news. I use a lot of them. Thank you.

Sounds like a fabulous trip! I love BBQ tri-tip!
You've got it under control, a good amount of food, I'm sure your teens are like mine, they eat non-stop! I've given up on THV, my boys are all over 6 feet now, the bunk bed days are done!

I'm not familiar with the marinade you referenced?

I always bring lysol wipes for the counters!

Lysol wipes, good idea. Thank you, we're excited. Tri tip is my favorite. DH is an insanely good cook and I'd make him cook every night but it's his vacation too. My kids are total grazers so snacks on hand are a must. Plus we've got DD's BFF so there's another teenager. My kids are pixies so I think the THV will be an option for one time. I'm only 5'1". They THV look like so much fun too. We won't have a car and that's my only concern but we'll leave lots of time to get where we need to be.

Santa Maria marinade: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/g...ipe/index.html

You'll flip, it's so good. If PDS can't find a butcher with the marinade, we'll bring the ingredients. It's fantastic and it'll have plenty of time to soak in as we won't grill it until our last night at the THV.

Also pack a flashlight for grilling at the THV. The path lights are on the opposite side from the grill, and it's really difficult to see when things are done if you're cooking after dark.

flour tortillas are listed under both the Bring list and the PDS list.

It sounds like you will have a great trip!

Great idea. We aren't planning on grilling after dark, I don't think. What time is sunset in mid October? I'm sure the kids will want a flashlight for exploring anyway. as you can tell, we're elated to be staying there.

Good catch. And I'm just spacey enough to buy and pack them. They're going on the buy list. It's been over three years since we've been to the World and this is our first trip to our official *home*. We're planning on a fair amount of resort time and while we can always eat at CS's, I like the comforts of home.

Never mind the theme parks, can we come over to your place for grub?

That's a terrific inventory of victuals, but you had me at Guinness

I'm trying to think what we'd need sugar for but I'm sure I'll know the second we arrive.

Nonstick spray is a good idea too for eggs etc....

I read a report where they baked cookies at night. Loved it. It's not uncommon for me and DS to leave the parks a little earlier than everyone else. I'd love to pop some dough in the oven and fresh cookies for when they get back.

The more the merrier.


I think we'll have a good mix of park and relax time.

Your coffee was what made me think of it. For us, we always need to be sure we have a good supply of Sweet 'n Low, because it's so difficult to find at WDW. Not just for the room, but also to take with us to parks and restaurants.

Smart. I'm thinking, I can't think of anything I put sugar in/on other than a recipe. I don't think DH does either but it's a good idea. The kids wanted me to add oatmeal and they like a little sugar on it.


My list keeps growing........

Ah, but then you need BROWN SUGAR, not just sugar.

So true.


Maybe this was not a good idea?
