PS=Priority Seating or making ADRs (advanced dining reservations). You can find public codes around this site and others. Just google disney discount codes, I'm sure mousesavers will show up. There are a number of guides that can help you with your trip. The Unofficial Guide is an 800 page book that is very informative. Plus, if you buy the book you are entitled to use their website for free. There are a number of other guides around, such as Tour Guide Mike.

This helps keep you and your kids clean while enjoying those melting yummy ice creams bars.
Wow. Best food-related tip I've ever read!

Wow!

I just read all 27 pages. I have been to WDW 3 times mostly with DB and once with him and his family. We drive now from NC so my tips are taliored to that.

I don't bother with travel sized things. For me it is a waste of extra money not to mention a waste of packaging. I take full sized bottles of shampoo, cond, lotion, tooth paste, and body wash.

We did bring our own water to the park.

We never took a midafternoon break, we just don't rush around and then fall asleep everynight with no problem

We used the shoe over the door holder... expect it didn't fit over the bathroom door at POR, we hung it on the rod in the closet. I would like to know how other people get theirs to fit.

I laugh when I read people suggesting pressed pennies as an inexpensive souvie... We have spent over 500 on pressed pennies and quarters. We Love every second of it.

Tips for the next time we go. (Hopefully this summer)
Do a tour - Last time we did behind the seeds tour. Amazing!
This time I am going to attempt to do some laundry mid week

Photo of Photopass card!

I didn't make it through this entire thread so it may have been posted already, but one of the photopass photographers suggested that we take a photo of the number on our photopass card in case it got lost. Fortunately we didn't lose it, but after all of the work filling it up, I would have been so upset if we lost it!

Are the stollers free for Disney credit card holders all the time, or was this a special offer?

Sorry I didn't wade through all 27 pages of this, so if this is a repeat, I apologize!

I am so glad we brought disposable cameras for our nearly 3 year old. The pictures aren't great, but they are so fun! (Lots of back tires of the Cars and Stars parade, etc.) She loved posing her plush animals in the room as well. Those were the things important to HER on the trip and that was SO important to remember when she was taking pictures of what just seemed random things to us.

I wish I would have known how much she would enjoy them so that I could have brought at least 3 cameras (or more). Once we were there and I figured it out, I wasn't going to pay Disney prices for pictures of people's rear ends! Next time, I'll know better!

It DID inspire Santa to bring her a "kids" digital camera, though... (however, I would NEVER bring that HUGE monster on vacation since I know who would end up carrying it! hint--not HER! )
