    goin 2 disney in 10 days!! SO excited :D i was wondering what would we need 2 bring as a most have thing

    Hi, Anna!  Great name, by the way!

    How exciting that you are leaving for your trip in only 10 days!  I am leaving for my next Walt Disney World vacation in 13 days, so I am gearing up for full packing mode as well.  The things that are must haves, especially if you have children with you, are sunscreen, hats, and if your children will wear them, sunglasses.  Make sure everyone has comfortable shoes, but I don't recommend going out to buy new ones, as even comfortable new shoes can give you a blister if they aren't broken in a little before you go.  Rain ponchos are handy - one for each person in your party, and if you are using a stroller, bring an extra one for the stroller. 

    I also keep with me a kids' first aid kit, which has band-aids, a pack of moist towelettes, tissues, and a limited amount of medicine like a cold medicine and a pain reliever.  If you plan on doing laundry while you are on vacation, a small box of detergent and dryer sheets from home will save you some money.

    Make sure you have all of your confirmation numbers - the ones for your hotel and any advanced dining reservations you have made.  You won't necessarily need them, but I like to have mine in case there is some confusion with anything. 

    I always bring some sort of shoes for the kids to wear to the pool or to play in the fountains, and air freshener for the bath room in your hotel room.  The other thing I never leave home without are some snacks that I can pack in my bag for the kids to eat while they wait in line for things. 

    And don't forget your camera!
