Just got back last week and these 4 items really helped out:

Great way to keep cool (I bought 2, cut them each in half and it was great for 4 people):

This is great for keeping your belongings safe at the pool:

I use my iPhone for pics so my battery fizzles quickly. I used these charger case and it lasted all day:

I did laundry while on vacation and used the sample Tide packets as well as the Shout Color Catchers. I was able to do one load; throwing whites, colors and darks into one load!:

I am glad I listened to the advice about making ADRs early and stalking the reservations site to possibly snag the ADD you want.

This time of year (don't know about winter/summer) They can't start the movie until dark, so the campfire show typically gets rolling around 7 or 7:30 -- I bet you can make it to the movie, at least!

The vacation portal vault looks to be a great idea! I just may invest in one. Thanks for sharing!

WooHoo!!! I'm loving the Touring Plan phone app already! I made a tentative itinerary plan yesterday for MK on the TP site AND I CAN ACCESS IT FROM MY PHONE!!! How GREAT is THAT!

THIS THREAD ROCKS!

Now I need to get one of those IPhone lanyards. Has anyone used one before?

Wal-Mart has a great waist pack on the hunting section with 2 bpa free .5 litre bottles and a large and small pouch. $9.97. After reading the advice / tips in this thread I just bought one for each of us.

Take a large ziplock bag so you can put ice in it on the way back to your room.

I agree with the bag of ice. Came in super handy for taking juice boxes to the park as well. My #1tip is to invest in a Rubbermaid water bottle. They are filtered water bottles sold at target for 9.99. I love them because the opening is big enough that you can fit ice in there. We would fill it up with ice and it would melt fairly quickly. We would then get more ice ( for free ) at any quick service restaurant and fill again. Seriously the best thing we took. I loved that you could pour the filtered water into another cup if you wanted to. Sometimes we would fill with water fountain water then just pour into another cup for kids. We barely even touched the case of water we shipped down

So the water is filtered on the way out of the bottle, not on the way in?

I think it's filtered in. And then once the water has been filtered you can share.

The water is filtered on the way out... See:

http://http://www.amazon.com/Rubberm.../dp/B004RLNDWA

About 3/4 way down page under description:

The 20 -ounce filter fresh personal water bottle with an on board filtration system gives you the taste of bottled water for half the price and a lot less waste. The filter fresh bottle's on board filter, filters the chlorine out of tap water on the way out of the bottle as you drink, so the water is always fresh and tastes great.

There may be others that filter differently.
