    Don't be so sure. On my family's first trip when I was 7 and my sister was 4, my mom somehow forgot to pack underwear for the entire family.:laughing:

    This year I've added packets of powdered bath soak for sore muscles. ...and a few different kinds of shoes in case I need them.

    Dawn dishwashing wipes......these are great for washing out those refillable mugs in the sink in your room. You can also use them on kid's sippy cups so that you don't have to pack as many cups!

    umm... what about some scented spray for the bathroom? Especially helpful in the smaller rooms :)

    DH and the kids, anything else I can buy later.

    I try to remember - Sunscreen, flavor sticks for water, pop-up hamper, laundry soap, quarters for washer/dryer and a corkscrew.


    The list of things that will really come with us is wayyy too long to post.

    I would just add hand sanitizer, hair elastics for mine and my daughter's hair everyday, hard cases to put glasses in and put them in your bag when you go inside or when it rains to keep them from getting broken, a list of any gift cards or credit cards you are carrying and the customer service numbers in case you lose them (you could also leave this list with a family member at home). That is all I can think of right now. Thanks for the great ideas. Keep them coming.:surfweb:

    Also a dish and spoon so that my DD can have cereal in the room before we hit the parks.

    If you have a stroller dont forget to pick up a clear plastic shower curtain at the dollar store and some of the heavy duty chip chips ( also atthe dollar store) to put over your childs stroller if it starts to rain . If you know you will be in a show or on a ride line for a while even if it looks sunny its a good idea to do. Those showers come out of nowhere and no one likes a wet butt!

    Hmm....now you've got me worried! I've bought them before, but not lately. I'll have to check next time I head to Walmart.

    Dang I go away for a day - come back and you guys already have at least two bags packed for me !!! I have updated the list on the front page and will continue to do so.. thank you to ALL of you for adding so many great things. I am sure we have all ran across at least one we would have forgot- or one we wouldn't have thought about.


    I will be keeping my eyes open to see if I can find them- great idea- let me know if anyone else sees these

    Not to worry I have added underwear and panties - I am sure you do not want to relive that !!

    As I read this... If you are flying...

    Take list on page one. Remove 90% of the stuff or be prepared to PAY the overweight and/or extra luggage charges!

    I totally agree with you - it really stinks that we all have to keep that in mind also.. although if I have to bring one extra really large bag and pay 25.00 extra I am prepared to do that to save my sanity. Plus think of all the money we will save by not having to pay 2.50 for two advil. Or 8.50 a piece for those ponchos they sell at Wal-Mart for 97 cents.
    But I think I may skip bringing a couple of the things to keep it with in reason.

    motion sickness tablets ( Bonine/dramamine etc)
    beach towels/water shoes if hitting the water parks
    MORE ziplock bags, for putting your socks in during water rides and whatever else you want to attempt to keep dry
    extra card for digital camera...those things are big bucks in the parks!
    if bringing an air mattress...remember your sheets and preferably not white like Mousekeeping's
    the dishwashing cloths are long gone...I have about 10 left...only because I used to cut them in 1/2 when I took them on vacations. They are great, not sure WHY they are no longer made. I checked the camping stores too...no luck!
    If you have your tix already, photo copy them and put the copies in your room safe. If the tix get lost or stolen, show the photocopies to guest services and they will take care of you.
