This thread makes me happy that we take our motor home to Camp Wilderness, but I am picking up a couple tips. One of our sayings is "Home is where you park it."

Plush toys and Robot cameras aside, my wife and I always bring things for breakfast like Nutrigrain Bars, something to eat on the go while racing to the parks for opening. We also pack Brita Water filter water bottles to bring into the park with us to make sure we stay hydrated without breaking the bank!

Jason always goes with 3 Stitch's. I will not allow more then three. I tease him about bring plushes to Disney where we are suppose to be buying plush's. Anyone that shops for Stitch knows there hasn't been any new one's in a long time.

As far as traveling goes J has one Stitch that has traveled the world with him.

Off topic - When I was at the store yesterday, I saw two guys standing outside a car talking. Then I noticed a big stuff Stitch sitting in the passenger seat of the car.

Gosh Mr Hub that is a lot of equipment! Easier for you all that drive us overseas people have stupid weight limits! We have a crumpler backpack for all the camera equipment and iPads which is DH hand luggage. I love the plug kit Scrappy bought you. Does Pal Mickey still work in the parks? I have one but didn't take it last year as I knew they had been discontinued.

Being tea drinkers I always pack PG tips. When I have visited my friend in Alabama I have to take out Thorntons viennese truffles and Wotsits! Also twinings earl grey as she says the American version is not the same!

We have a variety of plush that travel with us dependent on where we are going but October as we have savanna view at Kidani it has to be Gerald our giraffe! I am going to make a safari hat and we are going to sit him on the balcony with binoculars and a spotters guide to African game!

Wotsits are like Cheetos cheese puffs, but not as greasy.

(Sally Ann, hope you don't mind me answering this question while you were offline. I couldn't keep people in suspense any longer! laugh )

Just found this link,

some fishing line - always comes in handy
1% hydrocortisone creme- for mosquito bites, because I will get bit
deet towelettes because mosquitoes love me
panchos- because I have a collection of them and refuse to buy anymore
moleskin- because someone will get a blister
an extension cord or two- they take up much less space than a power strip and the cord is longer
a small foldable shovel/axe, large garbage bags, and a large roll of duct tape-just in case I accidentally kill someone

I always buy the cheap plastic ponchos before we go. They're small to pack in your purse or even back pocket. They are a fraction of the price that Disney charges in the parks. They're great for those pop up thunderstorms. I can say the ones you take to the park won't be Disney cute. Smile

I have to say, I was a die-hard Disney poncho fan until our wedding trip. The prices for Disney ponchos went up but I felt like the quality went way down. waiting

I thought that they seemed thinner than in past years. However we super loved having ours!!

I threw out a bunch and only kept the ones in perfect condition. I have seven of them. Three clear, four yellow. Six have Mickey on them.

I remember buying the one that didn't have a Mickey on it and thinking, "you've got to be kidding $8.50 for a plastic poncho and no Mickey on it?"
