    "Unique" Items to Pack for Disney Trips!

    What are some unique (so no toothpaste, underpants, etc.) items you pack to take to Disney? You know, the type of things that other people might not think of, but you find really helpful.

    Some of the things we pack include:

    -Yankee Candle (to give our trip a "scent")
    -Starbucks VIA
    -Moisture wicking socks and shoes
    -Sun hats (Sarah, not me)
    -External HD


    ...among a bunch of other things. Our full list is here: Disney Trip Unique Items Packing Guide & List - Disney Tourist Blog

    That's a great list you got. We also take packs of glowsticks from Dollar Tree so the kids can make necklaces and bracelets without having to purchase light up toys at the park. Not only is it cheaper to bring them with you, it helps us keep track fo the kids with their unique glow sticks.

    One of these:

    It's a folding hamper. They keep the dirty clothes from getting underfoot after a day or two.
    And one of these...

    ...to haul the dirty clothes home.

    We also brought these with. It saves money when you don't have to buy those expensive glow in the dark Disney sticks. Our kids didn't seem to know the difference...so what the hay.

    My wife has purchased the silly light-up toys from our local Disney store prior to our WDW vacation. We probably saved $30 that trip. We kept it a secret and our kids were overjoyed when she revealed them the first night.

    That's a great idea. I do believe we will be bringing some of those with us in November. We usually stay in one of the value resorts so we sneak in a small coffee maker because we can't function without our coffee.

    We bring a power strip to charge everyone's cell phones, camera, etc.

    There are not enough outlets in the moderates for all our electronic things that need to be charged.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Brilliant! We normally did 10-14 day trips when the kids we little. Think of the money I could have saved.
