    my daughter and friend of mine are staying at Caribbean Beach Resort on july 11. what should we pack. what are must have's to pack for time at the parks.

    Hey Andrea!

    Your daughter must be so excited...her trip is almost here! 

    It's most likely going to be really hot in the Parks, so some of the most important things to pack revolve around staying smart and comfortable in the heat and humidity.  
    Remember to pack:
    • sunscreen. One that can protect face & body, plus lip balm with sunscreen!
    • bandaids or moleskin in case blisters pop up with all that walking
    • sunglasses
    • rain poncho. My family picks up some at the dollar store before our trip.
    • tylenol or similar. 
    • wet wipes and/or antibacterial hand gel
    • plastic zip top bag to protect camera and wallet if it rains
    • gum if you like to chew it...they don't sell it at Disney!
    • tissues
    • glow sticks for nighttime. We get these at the dollar store, too.
    • backpack or other comfortable bag
    • Handheld fan or mister. Might seem bulky, but people love to have them!
    • pennies and quarters if you like to do the penny press machines
    • autograph book and marker if you want to get Character signatures
    For clothing you need your basics, and it's especially important to include:
    • socks. Bring more socks than you think you need! 
    • cardigan or hoodie for cool evenings and mornings
    • extra pair of shoes in case of rain or blisters
    • bathing suit
    Thanks so much for thinking of the Disney Moms Panel when you had a question!
