    We take 10 disposable cameras (5 per child) and let the kids (9 & 11) have 1 per park plus 1 extra. They can snap whatever, whenever.

    Then, we let them build their own memory books using their own photographs. The perspective of a 9-year-old photographer can be very interesting :)

    Also....body glide is a substance that you can run on your skin to prevent friction, rubbing and sores. Great if your thighs rub together in shorts, or helps to prevent blisters on feet. Good stuff.

    I am laughing as I read all these posts about what to take to WDW. Last year I had this big long list and was checking things off. We got to Orlando and my DH says, "Where did you put my insulin?" Yikes! I forgot to get it out of the fridge at home. Nothing like forgetting the thing that keeps the DH alive. Luckily he had a partial vial with him and some in his pump. We had to call the mail order pharmacy and have some shipped to our resort. So the number one thing is don't forget the prescription drugs.

    The last post made me think of this too ....

    Dh and I were on a weekend with out the kids get away... I wake up 2am doubled over in extreme pain --- bladder infection out of no-where. I had to send DH to the nearest 24hr walgreens at 2am because I couldn't stand it. He swears to this day he was probably still not at the legal limit for driving -- the pain was so bad I was thinking call an ambulance !! So I am going to add AZO to the list. Some of us will know that swimming and other extra activities while on vacation can cause these dang things.
    I now carry macrobid (pres. pills) with me on all vacations.

    I always pack a small screwdriver to take the backs off fans, misters, and any light up toys...etc that need batteries.

    Our first time at Disney, I remembered the extra batteries, but had a really hard time finding a small screwdriver when our fans needed new batteries. I never did find one. So I always pack one now.

    I remembered a couple more things I pack.

    I always pack clothespins. I like to use them to hang wet clothes on the line in the shower because to me they dry faster. I also use the clothespins when hanging some of my clothes that I don't want wrinkled.

    I also pack a thing of liquid hand soap for the sink, because it is easier for my kids to wash their hands. I like liquid hand soap better than a bar for myself too.

    I pack a couple air freshners. (the kind that just sit, not plug in) I like to put them by the dirty laundry that is in the pop-up hampers. :)

    I pack a Spray and Wash stain stick. This really helps a lot. Every night I put this on spots from the kids clothes.

    I pack packets of Sweet N Low. I use them for my hot tea in the room. I also drink unsweetened tea at restaurants and counter service, and at some places there is no Sweet N Low, so I keep a few packs in my bag that I take to the parks.

    For years now I have put my car keys in the fridge if there is something that I need to take with me that needs to stay there until I leave. Of course this works if you're driving but if you need keys to lock the door it might work too. Of course it's harder to forgot to start the car than it is to lock the door!:)

    I am an avid scrapbooker and picture taker so I make a list of all the photos I need to take while I am at each park. We go every year and I like to take some of the same photos so I can see how much my DD's have grown since last trip. It's also fun to see how much the park changes through different seasons.

    Just was re-reading original list- noticed #45- M&M container for pennies and quarters...we did this back in '05 and made it through BDL checkpoint with no problem, but coming home from Orlando, they kept scrutinizing my carryon bag through the X-ray machine...I didn't know what they were looking at- but then realized that was it...they opened the bag and I showed them what it was...they chuckled, but said it resembled a 'stick of dynomite' in the x-ray machine...wasn't arrested or anything :) but I think I will wait until I get to Orlando and WDW to load up the M&M case with the money!!:earsboy:

    I always bring a bottle of Fabreeze on long trips...

    "They are NOT dirty, but they smell!"

    It gets the chlorine smell out of swimwear, spay on after soak + dry.
    Works on bedsheet and carpet as well.
    ... not to mention car seats...


    ... I have smokers in the family.

    Speaking of which, there are these tablets that you supposedly put in the water that your swimwear were soaking in, it "dechlorinate" them so they don't get damaged...
    Never used them, anyone know and where to get them?

    If you have sunglasses or glasses, you might wanna bring glasses cleaner. And if your hair gets frizzy from the humidity, I bring a hair straightener and anti-frizz shampoo and that stuff. If you have Crocs, bring those for walking around!!!!!!!! I also like to bring a blanket with me if we drive to Florida, which we are this time. I also bring a bag for stuff like shampoo bottles, makeup, soap, that stuff. Hope this helps!!!
