    This panel is a huge help! Going to parks in Oct. As mom, tend to carry kitchen sink+everyone else's stuff. What are the essentials? Thinking of getting waterbottle carrier w/ 2 pockets and lanyard 2 fit phone, camera, KTW+$, small snack. Other thoughts?

    Here are some items that I find essential in addition to what you wrote in the Parks:
    • Sunscreen.
    • Bandaids &/or Moleskin because someone always ends up with a shoe that rubs.
    • Neosporin
    • Aspirin or other painkiller your family uses, for kids & adults.
    • Pepto tabs or tums
    • Antibacterial hand gel.
    • Wet Wipes.
    • Ponchos if there is even a hint of rain in the forecast for that day.
    • Tissues
    • Lip balm
    • Sunglasses
    • GlowSticks from $1 Store. So the kids have glowy things at night & don't beg to purchase expensive ones. Our last trip we had no less than 7 different families come up & ask where we got our GlowSticks! Our store has GlowSticks that are shaped like fairy wands & swords.
    • A washcloth in a plastic zip top baggie. Strange, I know, but this could be your BFF if you get hot. Stop in a restroom, wet the cloth & put on your neck or the kids & store it back in baggie when done. Last October when we went Orlando had record high temps and it was the hottest I've ever experienced there!
    • Gum...You can't buy this on Disney Property so if you are a gum lover like me bring it with you!
    • Pennies & Quarters for the Penny Press Machines! 
    • Autograph bks & pens for Character Meets
    Ok, now you've met the most neurotic OCD Disney Mom around that does carry everything in the Parks! All of these things I carry just what we might need for that day and restock my bag every night.
