    i am down to my last 25 days till my trip and i have all my lists of things to pack and buy is there anything that i can be sure that i need to have that might get looked over with what my DH calls "overplanning"

    My number one packing tip:

    Make a copy of the back of your Magic Your Way tickets. I leave a copy at home where a friend that watches my house can retrieve it for me, if needed. I also bring a copy. Tickets can be replaced if you have this information.

    Store your airline's 1-800 number in your cell phone. This was very handy for our family when our flight was canceled.

    Rain ponchos. We got some nice ones at the Totes outlet store.

    Mister fans. Very refreshing in the heat.

    Moleskin. A must for blisters.

    Small bottle of laundry detergent. Some dryer sheets in a Ziploc bag.

    Book reading light. It's handy if you are traveling with children that will fall asleep before you.

    A copy of your Advance Dining Reservation confirmation numbers.


    Dollar bills for tips.

    Health insurance card. Doctor and Dentist phone numbers.

    Bonine - motion sickness pills.

    Trash bags for dirty clothes.

    Snacks for on the airplane.

    Tissues. Anti-bacterial hand gel.

    Those are just some of the things that I must have when traveling to WDW.

    If you Google, "wdw ultimate packing list", you'll find some good lists to help you with your over-planning!

    I have a Master Packing List that I've revised for our WDW, beach, city and other vacations. Of course, these lists have been edited as our son has grown. It's not easy to travel light when taking a journey with an infant as I recall!

    Double-check your flight status or road conditions.
    Have your mail stopped via
    If using Disney's Magical Express, luggage tags will arrive soon.

    Have a magical vacation!
