    There are PLENTY of nutty people on board, my family definitely included. We dressed up from the hats to the boots and we were definitely not alone. Some more elaborate than ours and some not, but I definitely did not feel out of place.

    I just wanted to highlight how incredibly useful this tip is. My wife packs heavy, especially the cosmetics and toiletries. The over-the-door shoe organizer was awesome. I didn't think it would end up being that great, but it made a WORLD of difference. Thanks everyone for this tip, it served us well.

    So I said to my DW we need duck tape, what for she said, I told her why and she says that never happens. I'm betting all of the zippers just fall off out suitcases now. Thanks for the tips everyone.

    As someone who has witness her knickers coming down the luggage belt BEFORE the rest of her luggage... I concur on the duck tape.
    :laughing:
    I have found MANY uses for the roll I pack.

    We found that when we tendered for a Disney excursion, then towels were available in the meet room before we got on the tender. We didn't know that in advance, so we had already packed a couple from the pool in our back packs which they were quite happy with. Saved us having to add more stuff to our pack in the meet room. Did the same for a non-Disney excursion. Just remember to fetch them back!

    Thanks Laurie for those great tips.

    You mentioned water in the dining room - so you can get a complimentary glass of water in any of the restaurants as an alternative to the sugary drinks? Our kiddies get bad bellies when they have juice/soda with meals.

    Anyone know if you can bring water bottles into the dining rooms, for example the kids' stainless steel bottles w/ straw?

    Best,
    Theo

    You can get water. We've brought sippy cups, so I'm sure you can bring water bottles, too. Since they don't make money, per se, on dinner, you could probably bring in whatever wanted.

    I travel with teenagers, and DH and I often attend different activities so in addition to these great tips, I also packed a dry erase message board (Mickey design of course) to note our whereabouts to other family members.
