    I want to make sure I pack all the right stuff for a 3 yr old and 10 yr old. What are some must haves (aside from the obvious)?

    Hiya Jama!

    Aside from the obvious clothing choices here are some of the unique things that I like to bring for my kids to have for a trip to Disney:
    • Glowsticks from the dollar store. The kids LOVE having these at night & once you see the prices of the glow things on the carts you'll be so happy you brought these! I get ones that look like swords & fairy wands!
    • Bandaids & antibiotic ointment.
    • favorite stuffed animal, blanket, book or comfort item for the hotel room at night.
    • Night light from their room at home. We bring it to the hotel & it helps with that bit of comfort.
    • Hoodies or sweatshirts for nighttime or early morning Park time because it can be chilly!
    • Extra socks & extra pair of shoes in case one of those Florida rain storms get ya!
    • Autograph book & large marker for Characters autographs.
    • Favorite snacks like granola bars or chips? Bring em! You can bring them into the Parks even & save a few dollars when the kids get a little hungry.
    • Rain ponchos from the dollar store. We usually end up using ours at least once!
    • Maps of the Parks that you can customize at
    • Pennies & Quarters for the Penny press machines that are all around the Parks.
    • Large zip top plastic bags. Good for wet clothes and good to take one in the park if it starts raining put your camera in it!
    I hope that you have a wonderful, Magical time in Disney World!
