Earplugs are especially good at times to ensure a good night's sleep, too!

-Airborne (or your favorite cold preventative)
-Dental floss (don't forget to bring it to the parks if you're going to have a turkey leg!)
-portable DVD player for the plane or car ride to WDW
-tea bags or hot chocolate
that's all I can think to add.
Wasn't it proven to not work or something?
Whenever we travel we make a little id card of each of our kids. We print a 2 x 3 pic of them (current pic) and then we write their DOB, height, weight, hair color, eye color, etc... This way if anything happens and we get seperated we have an updated info of them for police or anyone trying to help us if we get seperated. I know this may not seem like a great idea but I know if I plan that "it could happen" it usually doesn't.
That sounds like something I'd do =] I don't have kids but if I did I would do that!
I believe there is a class action lawsuit regarding Airborne's claims to prevent a cold. I don't know all the details.
But we still use it and find it effective. I know some people prefer Zicam products.
I knew it was something like that! Zicam works pretty well too.
In the days before digital, we would snap a polaroid of them each day so we would know EXACTLY what they had on that day, now a digi photo will do in the event that they get lost.
Moleskin is a padded bandaid that you can find in Walmart or Target or any drugstore in the area where they have items for your feet. It comes in a roll and you cut the piece the size you need it if you start to get a hot spot or get a blister. There is adhesive on the back, so you just pull it off and stick it on the area. It is padded more than a bandaid so gives much more protection. I usually "precut" several pieces and slip them into my bag for the day in case we need them.
What a wonderful and helpful thread !
I admit I didn't read thru all 5 pages, but I'll add a few things just in case they haven't been mentioned.
1) Power strip
2) Ginger capsules for motion/air sickness
3) Suction cup hooks for any tile area
4) Extra nightlights
5) Disposable cups with fitting lids and straws
6) USB cable(s)
7) Fresh lemons and a plastic knife for tap water
If anyone packs toiletries in their bags, make sure that you have a ziplock bag filled with toiletries under 3 oz. The TSA has become real strict with that lately.
subbing--thank you for the great ideas everyone!
yup, but only if its in your carry on, you can pack whatever you want in your checked luggage.
If you have little ones that need the bathtub, I highly suggest either a small bath mat or tub appliques as the tubs are VERY slick! Either is like 99 cents and we usually just toss them when we leave, but they make life SO much easier!
Anyone flying that doesn't want a 5000 lb suitcase can mail all this stuff to their resort. Just put your name and reservation # and arrival date on the box and they'll store it until you arrive.
I think you have covered it all! I always bring my own pillow. I sleep better with it!
Thanks- I have added it and now - no-one will have yellow cobs for teeth !!
We are flying- but I bought my tickets on Frontier way before the June 10th date- anyone puchasing with them before that date does not have to pay for the extra bag - since that is when they went to that system. So they better be ready for four people with eight bags and four carry on's !!!
So true - I bought my first misting fan four months ago and started picking up extra toiletries every time I shopped.
Okay so at the risk of sounding horribly stupid - What the heck is bodyglide? - And I won't even tell you where my mind was - gutter
I was thinking maybe we could just bring one of those little mini sewing kits they sell for like 97 cents - that way we will have little scissors, a couple needles (for any blisters), thread and needle for any buttons that go flying. All in one kit !!
I am SO glad you all Love my idea! I am having fun with this and learning /adding alot of weight to my luggage !!
I am still checking this thread daily - just a little slow to update-due to DH being on business trip and kids on summer break.Getting pulled in eight different directions ! Great idea for the ear plugs. My kids however would just put them in their ears and yell louder because of it !!
I will be updating the list with your suggestions - My DH loves airborne - I think if it makes him think he won't get sick - then take it !! I however can't get past the horrible taste.
Great idea - Since the first question is always: "What were they wearing?" - Let's how this turns out to be a bit of overplanning none of us need in the end !
Thanks for the ideas - I have added the ones that weren't repeats
Excellent idea !!
This is also a very good tip. Keep in mind your shipping to taking with you ratio. Not sure about the mail but one extra bag weighing 50 pounds will set you back 25.00 on Frontier (if it is the second bag- third bag is more.)
This reminds me of staying at a very expensive hotel in Vegas and I swear the pillows were horrible - we referred to them as "the nuggets". And when I called and asked for more - they said they were out !! I never did get a good night sleep... hum..I bet the casino loved that !!
I am now off to update our growing list. I just thought of two more things. The tear-free shampoo for the kids. And for anyone with little ones- swimming diapers.
