I am so glad we brought moleskin. I wore some sandals (that I had wore before!) to AK on our first day, and almost immediately developed a blister on the back of my heel. Luckily we had the moleskin (and also bought some cushy Mickey socks), or my whole vacation would have been extremely uncomfortable!

I love everyone's idea to bring a pop up hamper. We're staying in a value (POP) and the room won't be very big to begin with, so keeping it uncluttered from dirty clothes will be a big help!

And I'm so glad I read on here about pressed pennies and being ready for the machines by having 2 quarters and 1 penny, 2 quarters and 1 penny, etc stacked in a film container.

We use m&m tubes and print cool "wrappers" from donatalie's 4shared file to decorate them. They hold more and are easy to distinguish which one belongs to which. ("That's my quarters!" )

Question

Ok, I have two ?'s. First, there used to be a thread that listed the things people recommended you take into the parks with you. Help, I can't find that info! I don't get to spend as much time on the Dis as I used to.

Second, I always read about people's trip to the _____ Resort next year...Is that just planning? Because I was told I can't make ressies for 2010 til Jan 1st of that year. I'm sure these ?'s have already been answered somewhere, but I just can't find them!

Exclamation

Heres my TIP, I learned it the HARD way!

TAKE A picture of your photopass card, cause when the CM gives you someone elses card instead of your own, it will break your heart!


Still hoping out for success thru Disney though....as it is a MAGICAL place

I read somewhere on the disboards about the Bagellini being the best bag for the parks. Well I bought one before our trip last year and haven't been able to give it up yet. It wears like an over-the-shoulder sling so I can wear it on my back, but I can also spin it around front at the drop of a hat to pull something out or in crowded places. It's waterproof so no worries on water rides. It held everything we needed for 6 people last year...ponchos, bottled water, camera, money, tickets, you name it, it fit without being very heavy or bulky. When it wears out (IF it wears out), I'll def be buying another.

Other tips...

**Rent a locker at the water parks.
**Always take a poncho...ALWAYS!
**I'm not a fan of credit cards, but the Disney VISA gives great great rewards. Plus you can get one-on-one time at EPCOT with major characters and a FREE 5X7 picture.
**Take drink powder packets to add to the free ice water that you can get in the parks.
**I know this isn't a tip, but the Peter Pan Family Magic Tour was AWESOME, especially for young children.
**Take a nap in the afternoon if at all possible.
**Take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours at night. Some of our most surprise MAGICAL moments have happened during these times.
