    a small plastic ziplock for your cellphone, cameras etc... water rides!!! and extra contacts if you do wear them. I made the mistake of packing 1 extra pair and happen to lose the ones i packed then dropped a contact right before we were heading into hollywood studios!!! I was half blind lol

    So many great ideas!

    One thing we always seem to have in the suitcase is a deck of cards...never know when you might get a spare second at night or want to play by the pool! Also, I recommend taking more than one pair of sunglasses...I know I tend to break mine like it's my job, haha.

    Great thread!

    As for the popsicles, mini frisbees come in a 3 pack at dollar tree, in disney themes. Use an exacto knife to cut an X in the center.

    That's a great idea! I generally also like to try and save with sites like group on.

    I'm a type 2 diabetic and I've found I love using the little containers that hold test strips. They shut water tight and are great for holding little things like pills, or anything else that can get lost easily. I also used them to hold quarters for pressed pennies, as the circumfrence is about the same size.

    I'm going to try to fit my pool noodles in my suitcase... just going with the cheap ones from the dollar store then they should fold easy and I can just leave them in Disney and use the extra space for souvenirs... Never thought about trying to fit them in a suitcase... Great idea... :)

    Wow... 51 pages of pure genius! This thread, and the entire DIS site is by far the best place in the world and is the perfect fix for my disney addiction until I can return!! I bring my own soap as well but I save the ones left in the room and give them out to the people at home when we get back. They are so cute.. round with mickey's face on them.. and FREE!!

    Personally, I think if offense is taken to someones comments that they should receive a PM instead of a public blast. We are all adults here and if someone is not aware of certain rules, a kind PM can enlighten them without humiliation and they can go back and edit their post accordingly. Very un-disney like some of the stuff going on in here. Spread the love!!

    disneydeal = we do the same where ever we stay - the least amount of bathroom light in case someone needs to get up in the middle of the night.

    Sometimes it is the ceiling light - other times the light above the mirror.
    Then keep the bathroom door ajar...so a little light goes into the room.

    I do not mean to waste electicity, but we need that bit of light at night.

    I LOVE this thread! I just booked my first WDW vacation since 2004 (and first vacay in general since '05!) :woohoo: and I'm unbelievably excited. This will be my first trip as an "adult" without the family and I have to say, I have no idea how we did Disney when I was a kid without all of these tips! I'm getting quite pleased that we are driving instead of flying so I can fit all of these extras in the car! Thanks so much to everyone who posted! :thumbsup2

    I bring a baby's diaper cloth in the parks. Can't tell you how many times I used it to dry seats on a ride!
    This time I'm bringing 2!
