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.

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.

Here is a few off my list that I didn't see on this one:

Boarding passes for the plane if you print them out ahead of time
ADR #'s
Personal towel to take to the pool (nice big one)
Pressed penny stuff
watch (I like this for the plane)
reading book for down time or plane
nail clippers (these go to the park with me too.. nothing puts damper on the day like a dang broken ragged nail)
tweezers
powder, especially for the summer heat
tide-to-go stain remover (also goes in my park bag)
safety pins

Just want to make sure you know you can buy the small hand sanitizer in a twin pack that hooks on your purse or whatever. This year I bought them and it was so easy to use while hanging off something I carried each day. Have a Great trip!

I think they may have stopped making the dishwashing cloths because they are not "green." As of a few weeks ago you could still buy them in large quantities on E-Bay.
