    Arriving 11/25 and was wondering if anybody could recommend a list of things NOT to forget for checking-in and our vacation in general

    Hi, Matt!   There are some items you will want to remember to have with you when traveling on your WDW vacation!  

    -Valid Drivers Licence.  You will need this or other valid photo ID (passport) for check-in. 
    -Credit Card so you can add charging privileges to your Key to the World card.
    -If you are doing a "room only" vacation and pre-purchased your park tickets, bring 'em along!   If you do have tickets, make copies of the BACKS of the tickets and a copy of your sales receipt for the tickets in case you misplace them.
    -Some guests have saved Disney Dollars or Disney Gift Cards.   These are as good as cash, so you will want to bring these but have them in safe spot (your kid's backpack is NOT a good idea!)
    -To help with saving a few dollars, before you leave go to your local discount store for rain ponchos, autograph books, pens, sunscreen, wet wipes, and hand sanitizer.  You will want to have these goodies in a backpack or tote bag with you in the parks each day.
    -Other items to pack:  swim suits, sunglasses, hats or visors, camera, and a jacket or sweatshirt for the evenings.
    -Make a master list with dining reservations, special attractions you don't want to miss, flight times, and phone numbers for your airline and resort.   Give a copy of this list to another adult in your party (in case you misplace your copy!)  If you are using Magical Express, bring your vouchers.
    -And, thanks to modern technology, make sure you pack all your chargers: phone, camera, iPod, etc.

    Some of these items are pretty basic, but its always good to run through a check-list.   Have fun packing and I hope you and your family have a great time in WDW!
