    It's our first trip to WDW and I'd like to make a goodie bag for the kids. I'm going to include ears, camera, Disney dollars, autograph book. Any other suggestions on what to put in it? Love your site!


    Congratulations on your first trip!  Very exciting!

    We leave in a few short days and I just got finished with my own kids' gift bags.  Beyond what you mentioned, here are a few things I tucked in:

    • glow sticks (dollar store!   These are great for night parades and shows)
    • lanyard and trading pins (these are expensive in the parks, so if you think you may want to try pin trading, save lots of money by purchasing in advance.  I bought our lanyards on eBay, and pin from  You can get pins on eBay also, but be careful that they are the real thing.  Some sellers have fakes.)
    • trinkets (also from the dollar store. I like silly putty, small containers of bubble stuff, Disney figurines, doodle pads, pens and paper, etc.  Great for entertaining the kids in lines or at restaurants.)
    • Disney stickers and/or temporary tattoos (guess where I got those?  :)  yup, dollar store!)
    • Hidden Mickeys or Passporter Treasure Hunts book
    • Downloads!  I printed out Disney word searches, trivia, Epcot games, and much more from (visit the 'downloads' section, link on the left side of the page)
    • Epcot Passport and Animal Kingdom Safari Journal

    Hope that helps with a few more ideas.  Have a magical vacation!
