I'm going to bring DH's homemade sauce but you did remind me, I need some fresh grated Parmesan. And as far as bread, I'm not sure when we'll be eating it so I'm afraid to get fresh French bread and make garlic bread so I was going to get refrigerated breadsticks, bake and serve. We can church them up with the cheese and some spices.

Adding the cheese.

I am in a THV now.

No plastic storage containers, and I was counting on them.
No Hot Pads!!! Since we too are doing a lot of cooking and we only live 45 minutes away I had packed a nice heavy set to have extras. Very glad I did. I am sure you could request some, but very inconvenient to realize they are not here if you need them NOW.
Very nice grilling utensils.
Pitcher is small 1 quart size, and serving only. No lid on it to keep in frig.
I assumed there would be additional trash and recycle bags in the trash containers. There were not and did not realize until I needed them. You may want to check your villa as soon as you arrive. The size of your group will be generating quite a bit of trash.

We are here until Sunday, so just ask if you have specific questions.

Thank you for posting Laura. This is all very helpful. no hot pads? That's weird. I'll definitely add one of those. My kids like to make nachos, in the oven and we'll also need them to pull out cookies. I guess we could use a dish towel but I don't want to scorch them.

No lid on the pitcher? I was thinking about frozen juices from concentrate but I won't now

Is d supposed to supply the trash bags or is that something I'm supposed to bring? I thought I read they are. Did you call? Did they bring them?

I will defiantly check all the supplies once we check in. You're right, it's not a big deal until you need them. And with 6 of us, I'm sure we'll fill two bins a day.

No containers either? Good to know. I might be able to squeeze a disposable one onto my luggage. It seems my fridge is always filled with plastic containers.

Have a great time and thank you for posting. How are you liking the villa? If you don't have a car, how's the transportation?

Might need mosquito/bug repellent if grilling at THV, the rain has re-generated the mosquito population!

Good idea. Has it been raining a lot? Is October really rainy? It rained daily when we went in September 2007. It was kind of nice to have that little cool down but it was so muggy after. I'm hoping for a little less humidity in October.

I'm beginning to see why people use those owner locker services.

It's the 1st summer in many years without a drought and Isaac gave us quite a bit of rain. Late October is the breaking point, it can go either way, still warm or wonderfully cool. I always pray for a bit cooler after the long hot summer!

We're 2 1/2 hours from Disney, generally stay 4 days and by the looks of it, you would think we're staying a month! But as I say to my son, I like to be prepared & organized and have what I need!

I often have 4-5 15 year old boys with me (only one is mine), I bring my crockpot from time to time because goodness, they can eat above and beyond the snacking!

I think the owners locker is a fantastic thing for those who come by plane!

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?
Just an idea but instead of chocolate bars and graham crackers we buy the chocolate covered graham crackers! saves a step.

I didn't know there was such a thing. Love it! Thank you.

That's a lot of teenage boys! You'd have to pack a ton. I imagine a loaf of bread lasts only one lunch.

If we visited yearly I would rent an owners locker but with trips every other or even other third year, it just wouldn't be worth it but I agree and if we went more often, I'd be all over it.

You sound like me. My lists make it look like we're staying for a month instead of 10 nights, 11 if you count arrival night at AoA. But like you, I want to be prepared and find it relaxing to have the comforts of home while away. All the comforts without the stress.

The crock pot is a good idea too. I think that PDS can rent those. I know she does Keurigs.

I'm hoping for a little bit cooler weather. It should be July hot so we'll be okay. Glad you got some rain and hope there wasn't too much destruction from Isaac.

I think I'll pack this with toiletries. I already had it on my list. That makes 5 lists total just for food and packing.

Extra trash bags are usually in the bottom of the trash can.

With West Nile Virus going around so badly this year, you probably do want something to keep the mosquitos off.

Have there been some cases?

DH travels to Africa and takes pills for Malaria, he should be covered. I'm imagining him fine in Africa and then it's an Orlando mosquito that gets him. Not funny but kind of funny.


Bug spray is a must.



You guys have helped so much and its very appreciated.

Well, Florida has only had 19 cases and no deaths reported this year. Louisiana where I live has had 73 cases and six deaths so far this year. Georgia 22 cases, three deaths.

From the map Orlando looks okay.

I was just listening to the DL podcast, and they were talking about tri tip. They were describing it as more of a west coast thing, so you might have to give your PDS some additional direction.

Oh, and we drive, and we ADORE our OL. We drink plain water, but we have an in-fridge filter at home, so we use a Britta pitcher on vacation. One lives in the OL.

Your PDS might be able to get matches, although you'll end up with 8 or so boxes! The light the bag charcoal fits nicely in the grills.

Have a great trip!

That's terrible. I'm not very familiar with West Nile other than its mode of transmission.

Thanks! Im going to get the easiet charcoal available. Wonder if I can pack matches in my checked luggage? We don't need 8 boxes. In fact we'll need about 4 matches total.
