    i found a list of thins you should bring with you to disney,now i can't seem to find it.can you help me out,i just don't want to forget something important.

    There are dozens of Walt Disney World suggested packing lists out there, without knowing which exact one you saw, it's difficult to point you in the right direction. There are two lists that I can recommend on independent websites. The first is on allears.net. Go to that site and search for an article called "What to Pack for Your WDW Trip." This list has suggestions of frequently forgotten items from other guests.

    The other list I'll recommend is one that I wrote for touringplans.com. At the top of the home page, look for "More TouringPlans" and menu down to "The Blog," then search for an article called "Trip Planning 101: Packing for Your Walt Disney World Vacation." There is a link there to a comprehensive packing list.

    As for general packing tips:

    - Anything that yomust have for the first day or two of you trip and anything that is expensive or irreplaceable should go in your carry-on luggage. This includes prescription, medication, cameras, and a change of clothing for each member of your family.
    - Check the weather forecast two days before your trip, particularly if you're traveling during the winter months. I've been to Walt Disney World in the winter when it's been 85 degrees and I've been the same week during a different year when it's been 45 degrees. Your packing strategy may be completely different depending on the weather.
    - Choose shoes that are kind to your feet. Most guests will walk between five and twelve miles every day that they are at Walt Disney World. Comfortable shoes can mean the difference between a great vacation and great discomfort.
    - Most things that you're likely to forget can be found right at your hotel. The Walt Disney World resort hotel gift shops are stocked with all the travel basics: toiletries, swimsuits, socks, and so on. You're also just a cab ride away from a Walmart and a Target. Try not to stress too much, most forgotten items won't make or break your trip.

    Good luck with your planning.
