    What are must haves when bringing very young children to the parks (just under 3 years old and 15 months old)? This is our first time and I am really trying to be as prepared as humanly possible. Just one day at Disney and one day at Epcot. Thanks Moms!

    Hiya Angelyn!

    Thank you so much for stopping by!  We've been on many a vacation with our little ones, and we also try to be as prepared as possible, so I totally get where you're coming from!

    Here's a list that I use when packing for the kids:
    Kid strength medicines and measuring cup/syringe
    Any prescription medicines they require
    A travel thermometer 
    Any loveys your kids need--including blankets, pacifiers, etc.
    Extra diapers/pull ups
    Sippy cups/bottles
    Dish soap to wash cups/bottles
    Diaper cream
    Brush and hair accessories
    Bath wash (if your child has sensitive skin)
    Swim Diapers
    Plastic table toppers for helping contain the mess while your children eat--these were a dream and and         SNAP to clean up after meals
    Rain cover for stroller
    Rain gear for the kids
    Extra sets of clothes for each child; including shoes
    Shout (or similar) stain wipes
    Kid toothpaste
    Clip on fan for stroller
    Bandages and ointment
    Nail clippers or file
    Thin blankets to shield from sun
    Baby carrier
    Kid safe lollipops or similar for airplane (if flying)
    Small toys or books for airplane
    Resealable bags--can be used for a variety of things

    We always pack our kids' daily outfits in resealable bags, and write their initials and date/day of the week that they are to wear the outfit.  It really helps us get dressed more efficiently in the mornings.  You can request a pack 'n play (or similar) at your resort, and bed rails are also available for use at your resort as well.  Those come in super handy for the sleeping toddler!

    Have a magical vacation!
